Keg Storage

Keg Storage Solutions

Storing beer kegs is often a tricky challenge for beer distributors. Due to their unique, round shape, storing beer kegs in traditional warehouse racks is only possible with modifications. Because of this, distributors often resort to storing beer kegs on the ground. However, there are more efficient uses of space, and it requires order pickers to bend and lift heavy kegs. Furthermore, the growing popularity of craft beer has led to even more significant challenges since craft beer kegs come in many different sizes. To accommodate the storage of an increasing number of beer variations on the market, UNEX developed Keg Flow. Keg Flow uses durable  SpanTrack carton flow rollers that integrate seamlessly into existing pallet rack structures.

Benefits of Engineered-to-Order Keg Racks

Keg storage solutions offer an alternative to palletized storage that consolidates floor space, reduces bending, and improves stock rotation. Travel time and mispicks for order pickers are also reduced when workers pick from racks that are specifically designed for storing kegs. Implementing a solution like  SpanTrack Keg Flow increases warehouse capacity while improving efficiency and productivity.

UNEX saw a need for a solution that would allow beer distributors to store kegs of various sizes. Keg Flow combines heavy-duty SpanTrack carton flow rollers, 6″ common heavy-duty guard rails to keep kegs upright, and high roller stops to ease the picking process. Implementing a solution tailored specifically for keg storage saves time, space, and money in your operation compared to storing and picking kegs off pallets stored at floor level.


Optimize Keg Storage with UNEX

UNEX designs customized keg storage racks to meet the needs of beer distribution operations, both large and small. SpanTrack Keg Flow allows beer wholesalers to store a greater number of beer variations in their distribution centers. Keg Flow racks can be built to accommodate a variety of common keg sizes, including Sixth Barrel, Quarter Barrel, Slim Quarter, and Half Barrel. SpanTrack carton flow rollers provide the most surface contact, so weight is distributed evenly to create an efficient, reliable, and durable keg storage rack. Implementing keg storage racks in your operation will bring heavy kegs up off the ground to increase SKU density, maximize space, and create FIFO product rotation.
