The Width Of The Forklift's Working Channel Warehouse Racking System

Apr 27, 2018

The width of the forklift's working channel, no fixed formula, is determined according to the width of various forklift's own width parameters and the width of the job requirements, according to the design needs to select the appropriate width, the following lists several common warehouse forklift truck operating channel width.

Manual hydraulic trailer

Shelf channel width design is 1.5m

Lift height at 3.6m

Hand push electric forklift

Shelf channel width design is 1.9m~2.0m

Lift height at 3.9m

Electric lift truck

Shelf channel width design is 2.0m~2.3m

Shipping weight 1.5T Lift height at 3.9m

Electric lift truck

Shelf channel width design is 2.0m~2.3m

Shipping weight 1.5T

Counterbalanced forklift

Shelf channel width design is 3.0m~3.5m

Carrying weight 1.5T

Electric Stacker (Straight Vertical Forklift)

Shelf channel width design is 2.3m~2.8m

Reach truck

Shelf channel width is designed to be 2.2m~3.2m

Carrying weight 2-3T

Narrow Forklift / Overhead Forklift / Trackless Stacker

Shelf channel width design is 1.6m~1.8m


Among the many types of shelves, drive-in shelving should be one of the worst types of stability, but a common type of storage shelf is also widely used. Hagris Xiaobian used the drive-in shelf as an example to illustrate the shelf and Forklift's things:

Drive-in racks are assembled racks where the forklift or stacker is driven into and out of the rack and stored on a pallet rack. The entry and exit of forklifts will inevitably result in damage to the guardrails, shins, and pallets due to the operation or level of the forklift driver. The damage will be scraped off the plastic powder, and the heavy load will hit the heavy truck. Death. As a warehouse shelf manager, how should we avoid this problem.

Then how can the shelves and forklifts match to reduce collisions.

1. During the warehouse planning, shelf manufacturers may be required to appropriately increase the width of the entry-shelf channel and reserve some safety distance for the driver in advance. This will reduce the impact of the forklift on the bull's leg;

2. Add protective sleeves on the calf or guardrail, but this method can reduce the damage of the forklift to the shelves, but it provides opportunities for some drivers with poor technical skills, making it difficult for managers to judge the operating level of the driver. ;

3, visual deceleration line in the channel floor to replace the slowdown sign, many times, experienced drivers, driving speed is relatively fast, there is a certain distance between the visual measurement gap and the actual gap, so a simple deceleration flag may not be very obvious;

4. Installing a fork gear sleeve on the forklift can effectively reduce the damage of the forklift to the edge of the tray and the middle corner; however, whether this method is feasible or not is best to pass the safety test of the forklift manufacturer.

In fact, in addition to the above four points, how to reduce the impact of forklift trucks on the entry-level shelf is the most important thing for the managers to ask, on the one hand, before the forklift driver enters the post, to enhance pre-job training and improve the driver's safety awareness. On the other hand, after the driver enters the ranks, it is necessary to strengthen the assessment of the forklift driver. As the driver of the forklift, it is also necessary to continuously improve his technical level and safety meaning. Only in this way can he avoid collision problems.
