Industrial pallet racking Installation

Overview of the Installation

This week, we are excited to showcase an innovative hybrid solution for a Industrial pallet racking. This installation that combines industrial pallet racking with manual picking capabilities. Spanning a surface area of 61,925 square feet, this installation provides an impressive total capacity of 18,960 pallets, each weighing up to 2500 LbS capacity. The unit loads are supported by three Unibuild bay configurations, reaching a height of 37.7 feet.

The Solution: Combining Pallet Racking and Manual Picking

To meet the challenging requirements of this project, integrated a highly demanding manual picking system within the industrial pallet racking framework. The solution features 13 ft high Bolted (Unirack) shelving units embedded within the Heavy duty (Unibuild) superstructure. This clever integration ensures efficient manual picking without compromising the overall racking system’s stability and functionality.

One of the key engineering challenges was the excessively high first pallet racking beam level. To overcame this by strategically positioning a Unibuild beam at a tactical height, making the seismic installation both feasible and secure.

Key Features of the Installation

  • Optimized Space Utilization: The hybrid system maximizes storage space, accommodating a large number of Industrial pallets while integrating manual picking areas.
  • Durability and Strength: The Heavy duty Unibuild bay configurations provide robust support for heavy Industrial pallet loads, ensuring long-term durability.
  • Enhanced Accessibility: The 13 ft high Bolted Unirack shelving offers easy access for manual picking, improving workflow efficiency.
  • Custom Solutions: Tailored installation to meet specific needs, addressing both pallet racking and manual picking challenges.

Leveraging Standard Accessories

The extensive range of standard accessories played a crucial role in the success of this project. These accessories were applied to both the shelving and pallet racking components, ensuring seamless integration and enhanced functionality. The use of upright face covers and independent protections further reinforced the system’s stability and safety.

Conclusion: A Benchmark in Industrial Pallet Racking

This hybrid installation exemplifies the power of innovative design and precise engineering in industrial pallet racking solutions. By effectively combining pallet racking with manual picking systems, a versatile and efficient storage solution that meets the high demands of modern warehouses.
