SEC Storage was invited by our partner, Forkway Group Ltd to design, supply, and install a storage solution that would maximise both capacity and operations at the company's warehouse facility in Greater Manchester.

The preparation and painting of the warehouse floor at a Global 3PL & Freight Management's Greater Manchester warehouse facility, along with the installation of adjustable pallet racking systems...
SEC began by preparing the warehouse floor for painting, suggesting the use of a vacuum assisted, diamond-grind system to create a floor that is both smooth and uniform in appearance, as opposed to the less-effective, industry preferred method of shot blasting.
The diamond-grind system created a surface that not only looks better, but that will last longer too thanks to the evenness of the pressures exerted on the floor during its preparatory phase. An epoxy filler was then used to carry out minor repairs, before the final, two-component, epoxy-resin (ResinFloor) coating was applied to achieve a high-quality, durable gloss finish.
Multiple runs of standard pallet racking were then installed, further expanding the total available warehouse storage capacity at the facility. An articulated truck configuration was used in order to maximise capacity and offer operational convenience, as an articulated truck can be used both in the aisle and outside the warehouse racking installation.
Lighting systems were installed throughout the pallet racking aisles and marshalling areas to the north and south of the warehouse, along with PIR motion sensors to maximise potential energy saving benefits. SEC also installed Rack Armour post protectors to the end of selected bays, acting as a preventative safety measure against potential forklift truck collisions.
