DeepLane® Pallet Flow System

Westfalia’s DeepLane® pallet flow racking systems, also known as gravity flow systems, fit your unique material flow and layout requirements. These flexible and durable systems can be designed to work side-by-side with your warehouse management system (WMS) and automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) to improve warehouse efficiency while maintaining and organizing inventory.  This pallet flow rack can double or triple the capacity of a warehouse and are easily integrated into either a conventional or automated warehouse. As an alternative to drive-in static racks, or storing pallets on the floor, DeepLane® is ideal for freezer and cooler warehouses, food distribution centers and the storage of high volume consumer goods.

Westfalia Pallet Flow Systems

Durable and Reliable Pallet Storage Racks

When pallets are deposited into the DeepLane® storage system, the gravity flow design allows pallets to automatically convey and accumulate at the discharge end. DeepLane® requires no power or air source. Therefore, they offer the benefits of higher density storage and reduced labor and handing costs, without additional operating costs.

The first load in is always the first one out in a DeepLane® Storage System. This first-in, first-out (FIFO) inventory rotation is ideal for the food and beverage industry, and other businesses that carry time-sensitive goods. DeepLane® storage systems help to ensure your customers are always satisfied with their fresh products that are delivered in a timely manner.

The quality and reliability of Westfalia’s pallet storage system depends on two key system components: the pallet flow rails and the brakes. Westfalia’s flow rails are designed with our characteristic triple rails to provide maximum pallet support. Alternatively, depending on the pallet type and weight capacity, double or quad rail designs may be used. Centrifugal speed controllers (brakes) restrain the speed of the pallets as they move through the gravity flow lane. The all steel gears maximize performance and the life of the mechanism with no springs, mechanical adjustments or external power source required. 

Benefits of Pallet Storage Systems:

  • Operate in cooler and freezer environments
  • Triple rail support to protect pallets
  • DeepLane® for FIFO or push back for LIFO inventory
  • Durable components to last
  • Direct access to pallets
  • High flexibility for future configurations
