An extensive warehouse appraisal leads to the design, supply and installation of a high-density, drive-in pallet racking solution at a leading manufacturer of home bedding goods warehouse facility in West Yorkshire.
The project which covers 59,000 sq/ft across the warehouse has the ability to store over 2,677 with further expansion available within the warehouse.
Design, supply and installation of a high-density, drive-in pallet racking solution in West Yorkshire...
The design and installation of 59,000 sq/ft of drive-in racking systems
SEC Storage were invited by Forkway Group Ltd, functioning as the Group’s preferred racking partner to design, supply and install a storage solution that would achieve maximum capacity at a leading manufacturer of home bedding goods 59,000 sq/ft warehouse in Yorkshire.
Upon SEC’s detailed warehouse appraisal, it was found that a standard, adjustable pallet racking solution would not be a viable option, as the low-level height of the warehouse unit would limit the potential quantity of racking that could be installed, reducing capacity
Any solution that was dynamic in nature would also be cost prohibitive, yet the need for high-density storage was essential. As our client didn’t have a large number of SKUs (stock keeping units), it was found that a drive-in racking systemwould be the perfect solution. Drive-in pallet racking by nature is one of the highest density storage systems available for warehouse operations. The system works on a (FILO) first-in-last-out principle, with our partner, the Forkway Group Ltd providing the necessary operational equipment via custom purposed forklift trucks.
See how the project came together...
One of the biggest UK drive-in racking installations of 2016
Eleven blocks of drive-in racking was installed in total, with each block designed to cater to different loads and pallet types. Anti-collapse mesh was also installed to the back of the exposed blocks, acting as a preventative safety measure to catch falling stock in walkway areas. Our client also wanted the installation to be completed within a specified time-frame, in order to minimise potential disruption to ongoing operations.
SEC’s solution was delivered from the initial planning phase through to the finished installation during a period of 8 weeks, on time and to the highest of standards.
