Standard Pallet Racking: We Have the Solution for You


Like many companies, SEC Storage likes celebrating its successes, including award winning warehouse storage solutions and projects for prestigous brands. However we have helped many clients with solutions for their small and medium sized warehouses. So here's a round-up of those projects and how we may be able to help you.


Standard pallet racking is a collection of racking components configured in a fairly simplistic way. Without incorporating complicated dynamic storage systems or configurations, the system is aligned in a run of single entry bays or a double entry rack, accessed either side by a forklift, pallet truck or pallet stacker. Starting at just 2100mm high, pallet racking can be suitable for even the smallest warehouse, to help with the storage of pallets and various product types.


To illustrate how warehouse racking has helped others, here are a number of small warehouse storage projects completed by SEC Storage.

Wide Aisle Pallet Racking System - Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire 

Having outgrown their existing warehouse facility in Hertfordshire, Elmwood Education Ltd moved to a new warehouse in Welwyn Garden City. As writers and publishers of school texts books they had a requirement to store very heavy pallets and maximise capacity, with the ability to accomodate future growth.


SEC Storage designed a standard pallet racking system within their warehouse on a wide aisle configuration, which would accomodate over 220 pallets. Due to the nature of their operation, a number of picking levels were also installed as a single pick or order could be 1 text book, or an entire pallet.


The project also included a small office-fit out for their administration staff.

Adjustable Pallet Racking in 3,800 sq/ft - Rushden, Northamptonshire

Wildman & Bugby Ltd the internationally recognised leather specialist, was relocating to a new warehouse in Rushden, Northamptonshire. It gave them the opportunity to re-assess their storage methods and look to incorporate pallet racking.


Following a warehouse appraisal by SEC Storage, the basic system was engineered in a specific way to ensure it was the most cost effective solution. Utilising a uniformed pallet rack bay aperture, each level was designed to accomodate a certain weight of rolled leather goods, which in turn presented cost savings as only cheaper, lighter duty beams were installed where necessary.


Based on a wide aisle configuration to suit the clients existing counterbalance forklift, it meant no special materials handling equipment was required for inside the warehouse and out in the yard when unloading delivering lorries.


The fully adjustable system will remain flexible for Wildman & Bugby who can reconfigure each beam level according to the stock profile.

Perimeter Pallet Racking and Reconfiguration - Thame, Oxford

Natural Balance Foods Ltd, the name behind Nakd and Trek wholefood bars, needed to expaned their Oxfordshire based warehouse storage facility. Not only did they require standard pallet racking in 2 new warehouses, they required the existing rack storage reconfigured to suit the changing business operation.


SEC Storage provided a perimeter pallet racking system in the existing warehouse, enabling the staging of finished goods in the centre of the warehouse.


In the other 2 new warehouses, a mixture of single-entry and double-entry racking bays were configured along with "bridging-bays" to allow for forklift trucks to pass through the racking. This provided maximum space utilisation of the new warehouse, and storage capacity for the client in coming years.

Pallet Racking System coupled with Mezzanine Floor - Luton

Expert Installations Ltd specialises in retail and POS displays, and were moving to a larger premises as they had outgrown their existing facility. They required a solution within the warehouse storage space that not only provided them with sufficient pallet storage, but enabled them to extend their offices.


Following a warehouse appraisal and space planning process, an adjustable pallet racking system was installed, along with a mezzanine floor which enabled the extension of the offices.


The pallet rack system primarily encompasses perimiter racking with one primary central double-entry rack. To maximise space, SEC specified single pallet bays, which enabled the full use of space increasing capacity by up to 50%.

"SEC provided me with a one stop solution for rackingmezzanine and office extension which meant that I had one point of contact for the whole project. All work was completed on time and to a high standard."
