Drive-in Pallet Racking is the ideal solution for any warehouse/industry where high-density & multi-deep pallet storage is required. These rack systems can be tailored to suit a range of widths, depths, and required accessibility.
Our Drive-In Racking systems are perfect for multi-deep pallet storage making it easy for forklifts to drive into empty rack locations. Combined with unsurpassed strength, drive through racks provide excellent storage capacity which helps achieve maximum storage at minimal costs.

Drive In Racking for pallets

Incorporating Protect-a-Rack design, our Drive-In Pallet Racks are one of the most cost-effective storage solutions for businesses. With its advanced features, Drive-Thru Racking delivers the lowest price per footprint of any other storage systems, where pallets can be serviced by both reach and counterbalance forklifts.

Drive-Through Racking: High-Density Storage for Larger Volumes of Pallets per SKU

We design, supply and install high-quality Drive-in/Drive-through pallet rack systems at the best rates in Melbourne, Victoria. If your warehouse requires high-density storage, particularly to accommodate large volumes of pallets per SKU, then our Drive-In Racking is a smart solution.
Drive-in racking suits a wide range of industries, including general manufacturing. And if you’re in the food and beverage or cold storage sectors it’s ideal.
However, if your priority is maximum capacity, consider our Double Deep or our Narrow Aisle and VNA Rack system. But if it’s fast, constant access to every single pallet you need, then consider our Selective Pallet Racking system.

The Benefits of Drive-In Pallet Racking

High Efficiency

The Colby system incorporates our patented and registered Protect-a-Rack design. Manufactured in Australia from heavy-duty steel it ensures quick, easy and cost-effective installation. The streamlined design maximises clear bay entry. And our new, upgraded uprights are stronger, even more stable and offer optimal structural efficiency.
The drive-in racking system is part of our certified ColbyRACK range – a robust, established and versatile system which maximises your valuable warehouse space.

Modern Innovative Design

Our intelligent heavy-duty symmetrical bracing provides strength while limiting the necessary bracing. One-piece formed cantilever brackets with their single-sided design allow for varied pallet levels in adjacent bays. Our ‘lead-in’ nose and rigid channel system guide the forklift into the lane for quick and easy pallet alignment. And our patented pallet runner design not only minimises vertical deflection, it also virtually eliminates horizontal deflection and twist. Constructed from heavy-duty galvanised steel, the system is bolted from underneath to avoid catch points.

Safety First

Drive-in Pallet Racking has a range of integrated safety mechanism. Heavy-duty customised floor channels, and our patented Colby Protect-a-RACK ‘upright wraps’ are examples. Backstops positioned at the end of the runners prevent pallets from being pushed too far into the rack, avoiding potential damage to the spine bracing as well as improving safety.
