Double-deep racking, also known as two deep pallet racking, is the best compromise between a selective and non-selective pallet racking system. A double-deep racking system is a double-sided configuration that allows storage density and picking to both be a priority. When you’re choosing a racking system, it can be difficult to know which racking will suit your individual needs. All warehouses will require a racking system that is suitable for the storage density required, ease of picking and their budget.

Why Choose Double-Deep Racking?

Double-deep racking is a great option for those looking to enhance their floor space storage, without necessarily needing regular reach to their stock. Double deep racking allows you to store two pallets deep in a single-entry rack, or four pallets in a double entry rack. You may choose double-deep pallet racking if you need less aisles in your warehouse, but more storage density.  Double-deep racking can also be a relatively cheaper option of racking, so your budget may be another reason you choose this type of racking for your business.
