Live Pallet Racking system (AR Live Storage FIFO) is ideal for warehouses where stock turnover control and space saving are critical.
The Live Pallet Racking compact structure uses slightly inclined roller beds on each level to allow unit loads to be moved more easily.
AR Racking offers two types of live pallet racks:
This system uses the FIFO (first in, first out) method, where the loading area is at the opposite end of the unloading area and the goods are transported through this space thanks to the roller beds that form a rail with an incline.
As a complement to Live Pallet Racking FIFO there is also Push-Back Racking LIFO which uses the LIFO system (last in, first out) and therefore has a single loading and unloading point; goods are stored by pushing the previous ones towards the back.
Live Pallet Racking is the perfect high-density storage system for homogeneous pallets.

The Live Pallet Racking or FIFO dynamic pallet racking system is a compact structure with a slight incline and roller conveyors that allow palletised products to slide freely.
Loaded pallets enter the structure on one end and move securely along the roller conveyors at a controlled speed, moved only by the force of gravity, until they reach the other end, ready for removal.
The movement of the load units in the live pallet racking systems AR Live Storage (PAL) is absolutely secure since the structure is equipped with a series of technical and organisational measures for control and protection.
It operates by the palletised loads entering the structure at the higher level of the two ends.
The unit load moves by the force of gravity of the roller conveyors, but at a safe and controlled speed with the help of the live pallet racking braking and safety systems.
When the pallet reaches the opposite end, it stops thanks to the retainer or the last pallet deposited and it is then ready to be removed.
In order for the loading, unloading and movement of the unit loads in the live pallet racking system to be carried out in complete safety, the structure is provided with a series of technical and organisational control and protection measures.
OTHER DESIGN OPTIONS
Live pallet racking systems can vary from their original design according to each customer’s specific storage needs.
PUSH-BACK MANAGEMENT (LIFO)
A push back system based on LIFO warehouse management (Last In, First Out) can also be installed. The main difference is that only one aisle is used for work as loading and unloading take place in the same area.
The folding roller system allows roller conveyors to be moved and raised for cleaning and maintenance, and to access the warehouse floor, all this while maintaining the same technical characteristics and system operation.
Split rollers can be installed in the loading and unloading areas of live pallet racking systems to simplify the work of forklift and pallet trucks. They also prevent roller damage.
FLOOR LEVEL PICK-UP
Sometimes warehouses with dynamic racking systems need the load units to be picked up at ground level. To simplify this operation, a special pallet output area can be added.
Live pallet racking FIFO systems comply with the strictest European safety standards, and also come with AR Racking’s quality guarantee.
100% automated production
The production process of the basic components of our live pallet racking is fully automated in our factory: it incorporates state-of-the-art profiling machines with a continuous cutting process and laser measurement control, welding centres and automated painting and packaging processes, which guarantee the highest quality parameters.
Designs in R&D&I Centre
Our live pallet racking systems are designed and calculated in our R&D&I technology centre where we have an expert team which allows us to tackle projects with the most complex logistics requirements.
Tests at Research and Testing Laboratory
The Research and Testing Laboratory developed in collaboration with the University of Mondragón provides our product area with the appropriate tools for the testing and analysis of our racking systems; it simulates, calculates and researches the efficacy of the geometries, and makes full structural calculations on the behaviour of systems already installed.
5-year quality guarantee
The quality reliability of our live pallet racking solutions means we are able to offer 5-year guarantees of excellence against all types of manufacturing or hidden defects in the components of the main structure of our racking solutions.
Innovative component traceability system
The uprights and beams of our pallet racking systems include an innovative traceability system in the sector.
Thanks to this system, our storage system components have an identifying mark, which means that each upright and beam can be traced and documented from origin, and that information is therefore available on which component it is, its design and the raw material used in its manufacture.
Our projects and customers are our best ambassadors. Therefore as a result of the more than 26,000 projects carried out in over 60 countries, we have satisfied customers from various sectors: food and beverage, automotive, distribution, electronics, pharmacy and cosmetics, industrial and transport and logistics.
The Live Pallet Racking system has a basic structure of frames, uprights and dynamic profiles, similar to other storage systems in the AR Racking range.
Together with the basic structure, this dynamic racking system also includes a large variety of specific elements for safe, controlled displacement of the load units.
The main components that make up this live pallet racking system are:
The galvanised frame is one of the basic components of the structure and consists of 2 uprights, their diagonals, baseplates and floor fixing elements. The frames will be anchored to the floor for greater rigidity of the structure.
Beams are the horizontal elements that support the load (in the case of live pallet racking FIFO indirectly) and that join the frames together. In live pallet racking, the beams support the roller beds on which the unit loads will move.
Beams have connectors that fit into the drill holes of the upright and make the system more secure.
With a wide range of types, lengths and load capacities we adapt to the specific needs of each warehouse.
Live pallet racking protectors
These can be side or upright reinforcement protectors and are passive safety elements that protect the live pallet racking from potential damage from forklift impacts.
Component anchored to the beams of each of the level ends and on which the rollers that move the racking are supported.
It is situated at the front of the roller bed and helps operators when depositing the unit loads, preventing them from veering from their correct course. These elements also protect the structure against potential impacts.
Essential element in live pallet racking FIFO, designed in steel and anchored to the rails along the entire level to facilitate movement by gravity.
Safety element repeatedly placed along the roller bed, and whose objective is to control the speed of the unit load as it moves from one end of the rack to the other.
Component located at the end of the roller aisle and whose objective is to stop the pallet; it means the pallet can move no further and is ready for removal.
Optional component whose function is to separate the unit loads compacted at the end of the aisle and distribute the pressure among all of them.
It is another optional component for live pallet racking, which is added depending on the needs of the installation. Its main advantage is that it allows the roller beds to be raised for cleaning and maintenance, as well as that of the floor of the installation.
It is another optional element that is installed in the loading and unloading areas of the live pallet racking to simplify the task of forklifts and prevent the roller bed from being damaged.
The advantages of live pallet racking FIFO are their compaction, time savings and good stock management.
Live Pallet Racking systems significantly optimise the space available in the warehouse, but live pallet racking FIFO in particular, due to its stock management method, is especially recommended in the following circumstances:
