Light Duty Racking
Light duty racking or otherwise known as ‘mini racking’ is the go between the light duty shelving holding weights of +- 120kgs, and racking that holds a heavier weight of anywhere from 1,500kgs to 4,000kgs.
The mini rack can be designed to suit our customer’s product constraints of weight and size. The mini rack is the baby of the stronger Selective pallet racking and holds weights from 200kgs up to 2,500kgs on the smaller length beams.
Double Deep Racking
This type of racking solution allows the customer to double their material and product storage capacity, by placing four pallets within one bay per level of beams. This increases the depth of product storage at each level, and with the use of an extended forklift, customers can remove two pallets of product at each pallet position.
Push Back Racking
Push Back racking configurations are created around the goal of organizing storage space with a focus on the bay depth rather than width. With the focus being on depth creation for material storage, this system lessens aisle space and enlarges storage density. This is achieved by the bay allowing up to six pallets of product to be stored on easily accessible rails, and also utilizes the storage method of Last In, First Out.
Live Storage Racking
Live Storage, also known as Pallet Flow systems are high density pallet storage systems that use depth to increase capability. Product is loaded onto tilted rails which have soft rollers to allow the pallets easy movement within the bay, and these systems often have high-level braking structures to control the movement of product. This storage solution is flexible and uses the FIFO (first in, first out) method.
Mobile Racking is the most beneficial type of storage solution when looking to maximize current warehouse space. It achieves this by eliminating most aisles within the current space as the rows of racking are all constructed upon a mobile base. These mobile bases are controlled electronically via a remote which the forklift driver controls. Once product is needed to be removed from storage, the operator will select the row of racking which needs to be accessed and the racking will shift either left or right in order to create an aisle for unloading product.
Rack Clad Building
Rack Clad Building is a replacement storage solution for customers who are potentially looking to build a warehouse to store materials and products but are adverse to the overall expense. Rack Clad is a simple and cost effective alternate solution to building a brand new warehouse or distribution centre. The racking is erected to the specific width and length dimensions of what the potential warehouse would be, and is then enclosed with clad sheet metal, thereby creating a warehousing structure.
Static / Adjustable Pallet Racking
Pallet racking is a product storage system created to store materials and retail products on pallets. They are interchangeably known as static, adjustable or selective pallet racking.
Although there is an array of pallet racking systems, they are all designed to hold materials along horizontal rows with a number of levels depending on the height of the storage space. All types of pallet racking amplify storage mass of the stored goods.
Drive In Racking
Drive In Racking is a storage solution which allows forklifts to drive straight into the lane of stacked rows of product. This means that there is only one entry and exit for the bay of material or product and with this type of configuration the method of removing material or product should be Last In, First Out.
Similar to Drive In Racking is Drive Through Racking, with the only difference between the two being that the drive-through has two entry and exit points, allowing for a First In, First Out storage method. This scheme is advantageous for material or product with an expiration date, or wherever shelf life is a factor.
Carton Flow Racking
This type of racking is designed to allow product and material to ‘flow’ forward upon each box removal of product. This racking system is beneficial in a packing line of work with the use of conveyors. The flow is created by leaning beam levels and the use of a gravity feed rear load design. When the boxes of product are removed from the front of the bay, the product which sits directly behind it moves forward automatically, and thus creates the flow of the system.
This storage solution is mainly used for products which are not of a standard size and weight. This racking system works best for materials such as timber, PVC piping, gutters, steel rods and other similar building products. The design of the racking does not allow for typical pallet packing and removal as the structure of racking consists of uprights which create the bays of storage, and two steel arms which extend outward onto which the product is loaded directly.
The Mole Racking storage system offers the most dense storage warehouse solution. This system only utilizes two aisles within the current space; a loading aisle and an offloading aisle. Only two aisles are used as once the forklift operator delivers a pallet to the picking station, an electronic ‘mole’ collects the pallet and moves it down the aisle to the furtherest location and returns back to pick up further loads of product. This alleviates the operator having to continually move up and down the aisles loading and unloading product, and greatly reduces the overall time spent on loading product and material.
