With the rapid growth of e-commerce, cluster picking operations are becoming more popular applications in material handling and warehousing facilities. Typically one or two flow lanes are located in a bay with an aisle between the lanes; employees on the platform then enter the lanes to pick from various pallets, putting items on a takeaway conveyor to be packaged and shipped. Often cluster picking operations are located in multi-level rack supported pick modules in which multiple deep pallets are pushed into the pallet flow systems.

Rack supported safety gates are suitable options within cluster picking applications in busy distribution centers or material handling facilities because of the limited space within the rack system. The Rack Supported Roly multiple pallet deep design is a dual-gate system that attaches directly to the rack uprights in rack systems or pick modules. Attaching to rack uprights helps maximize space in the area and creates a secure connection without having to anchor the gate into the decking. The gate can be designed to match the depth of the pallet flow lane to capture multiple pallets.

The extra deep dual-gate system prevents pallets holding the gates open when the lane is full and creates a completely enclosed workstation while providing fall protection for the workers in picking positions and around the empty pallet or tote return bays.

The Rack Supported Roly pallet flow safety gate uses dual, counter-balanced gates to secure the ledge and keep employees out of the flow lanes while the lane is being replenished with pallets. When the ledge-side gate is open, allowing material to be delivered to the pallet drop area, the rear-side gate is closed, protecting the worker from falling off the ledge. When the rear side gate is raised to gain access to the pallets, the ledge-side gate closes and compacts into the rack bay, maintaining a safe environment during all stages of the operation. If the rack does not extend above the decking on the top level of the pick module or if it’s located on a work platform, the gate can be designed in a free-standing model.
