Carton Flow Track Racks - Selection Guide

Selection Guide

Selecting the Right Span-Track for your application is easy.
The industry you are in and the way you operate (full case, split case, each pick, fork truck aisle, etc.) will determine which model or combination of models is right for you. Some typical applications are shown below.

1. High Profile. Typically used in loose pick applications or where contouring racks is preferred. The fully adjustable overhang allows track to extend beyond pallet rack depth. 2. Low Profile. Generally chosen where vertical space is limited or if above pallet storage requires fork trucks in the aisles. 3. Knuckled End. commonly combined with straight High Profile Span-Track for contouring of racks. 4. Deck Span-Track. For full case or each pick applications. Just drop into single deep pallet rack and
convert static storage into carton flow.

Capacities & Lengths
Unsupported spans of up to 10 ft. are possible, depending on product weights.High Profile can overhang beams at front, back or both ends. Low profile requires more precise measurement of raack depth. The between beam dimension (BBD) determines the Low Profile track length required. Measure (level) the distancebetween the front and rear pallet rack beams to find the BBD.

Track Width
Span-Track provides excellent product tracking. Guide rails are not required. It is an acceptable practice for firm flat carton bottms to be of greater width than actual track section.
Pitch
Pitch requirements vary depending on the firmness of the carton against the track and the weight of the product being handled. The chart below gives approximate values as a guide only. Actual testing of product should be done at installation.
Roller Centers
Cartons with firm flat bottoms will flow properly if supported by a minimum of three rolers. Cartons with poor bottoms or heavier weights may require closer centers to provide proper flow.
