KOOI®-ReachForks for Double-Deep pallet Racking

Double-Deep storage instantly gives you more pallet locations compared to conventional pallet racking. Many lift truck manufacturers have the know-how and technology to help customer optimising their warehouse space like double-deep pallet racking with the help of KOOI®ReachForks. Space equals money. So how do you get the most out of your warehousing space? There are numerous methods of storing palletised products in a warehouse – from simple floor block-stacking to highly sophisticated automatic crane stores. All have their virtues, depending on your operational requirements – whether it is simply to store as many pallets as possible or to allow a very high degree of selectivity and instant retrieval of any given pallet. For many types of warehouse, however, double-deep stacking combines highly efficient space utilisation with excellent availability, using flexible, cost-effective handling equipment.

Advantages of Double Deep Pallet Racking:

  • The ability to stack two pallets deep – often with guide-rails to upper beam levels for added safety
  • Increased storage capacity by as much as 10-15% when compared with Selective Racking
  • 50% immediate accessibility with reasonable stock rotation
  • Safe and secure handling with the bottom pallet usually off ground
  • Ability to use double deep handling equipment for other tasks

As less aisle space is needed, you can really maximise storage space using this system. You will need a forklift truck with telescopic forks to access the pallets but this investment pays for itself very quickly.

Telescopic forks have a number of distinct advantages like:

  • Very affordable.
  • Easy to install on existing fork carriage.
  • Easily swapped like standard forks.
  • Excellent visibility like the normal forks.
  • Just around 100 kg extra weight to compare to standard forks.
  • Improved residual lifting capacity to other double-deep attachments like scissor reach.
  • Same handling speed like a pantograph
  • Virtually no extra lost load thickness compared to standard forks.
  • Shorter mast height due to absence of moving auxiliary pantograph mast.
  • No hinged parts, bearing, rollers meaning reduced maintenance costs.
  • Double-pallet transport without the need for extra-long forks.
  • Easy to install onto other equipment such as fork positioners or side-shifts.
  • Improved residual lifting capacity due to fork positioner mounting on a mast, hence reduced risk of tipping.

Depending of the weight and customers needs we can supply different models like a one cylinder reachforks and like the video a twin-cylinder reachforks. Also available options like cameralaser and KOOI®-ReachControl.
