1) Flow rack
Storage rack that utilizes shelves (metal) that are equipped with rollers or wheels. Such an arrangement allows product and materials to "flow" from the back of the rack to the front and therein making the product more accessible for small-quantity order-picking.
2) Free span
The distance between supports in a storage rack.
3) Drive in rack
This type of rack utilizes upright frames, rails, and ties to allow a vehicle to enter a storage rack structure from one side only and pick up or deliver pallets on continuous rails. Drive-in rack is used to address repetitive products and serves to take advantage of cubic space available for storage, when such unit loads do not lend themselves to block stacking.
4) Decking section
A completely fabricated decking assembly with reinforcing members ready for installation upon supporting storage rack framing. One or more decking sections are used to form a shelf surface.
