The launch of Interroll Carton Versi Flow has created much interest within many supermarket DC’s and grocery logistic supply chains, providing a versatile and cost effective solution to converting pallet racking into dynamic live storage, optimising on available space and facilitating FIFO (First-In-First-Out) order processing.
This versatile modular wheel system, supplied in pre-assembled beds, is designed to simply and quickly convert most pallet rack structures into dynamic, versatile carton flow storage. Interroll Versi Flow flexibility proves to be a key feature for many order picking operations, as seasonal changes in pick volumes can be catered for as the carton live system can be quickly removed to revert the supporting structure back to pallet racking to meet changes in throughput requirements.
The range of ‘Versi Flow’ strong multi-wheel roller track sections are available with a variety of wheel centres, module widths and lengths, to be simply fitted onto pallet rack cross beams to create a complete dynamic shelf level. It takes only minutes to retrofit existing pallet racking and requires no special tools to mount shelf beds into racks. Using robust, larger and wider diameter polycarbonate wheels than normal carton track, this provides for easy flow ability and the wide rolling surface gives good support for various carton types, plastic totes and blister packs.
The densely packed, complete bed of wheels provides for ultimate flexibility as changing carton sizes can be accommodated without the need for track and guide re-configuration. Interroll Versi Flow allows you to achieve 90% space utilisation and efficient storage on a first-in first-out principle (FIFO).
Strong polycarbonate wheels resist impact damage and provide long wear characteristics and are separated by movable spacers for versatile wheel spacing. Durable and virtually maintenance-free, Interroll Versi Flow can be used for storage of many FMCG including food and grocery goods, wines and spirits, freezer stores operating at temperature -35°C to 40°C, stationery, books and other fast moving items that may also be date sensitive. Strong side profiles allow for superior load carrying over long spans, compared to normal carton flow; loadings of 1400kg UDL for a typical rack level of 2700mm clear entry x 2000mm deep.
Accessories such as ‘Entry Guides’ and ‘Full Length Guides’ are available to aid order picking.
