Selective Pallet Rack
Selective pallet rack is designed for first-in, first-out (FIFO) inventory management.
How It Works
In selective pallet rack, pallets are loaded and unloaded from the front via a lift truck.
Double-deep, or two pallet deep, selective rack is also available for a LIFO inventory management option.
Selective rack has a number of options to aid in storage and handling. Bolted cross bars are available to support pallets. Wire decking is also often used to support pallets as well as totes or boxes.
The most common bay size for selective rack is 96” wide x 42” deep. However, there are many different bay configurations possible to accommodate products of various shapes and sizes, as seen in this case study. REB engineers can assess your operation to provide you with your best layout.

Benefits and Ideal Uses of Selective Rack
Selective rack is the most common type of racking system because it enables direct access to all stored pallets or cartons without the need to move others. This makes it a highly selective solution.
The high selectivity does require numerous aisles, making it a lower density option compared to other racking systems.
Selective rack is very versatile. It can be used for a number of applications from retail, food and beverage, among many others.
The direct access to products makes it ideal for distribution centers with continuous product circulation or that require access to all pallets simultaneously.
Selective pallet rack systems can also be used for reserve storage of products, to replenish picking areas when needed.
