INDUSTRIAL RACKING SYSTEMS
We manufacture industrial racking systems which are mainly for use as multi-level supporting structures for the storage of goods. The components of the industrial racking systems are made from mild steel strips that are perforated and bent into beams and columns for use as industrial racking systems. They are made of galvanised mild steel or uncoated mild steel and after forming will be powder coated to provide colour as well as protection against scratches and abrasions.
The industrial racking systems components can be used for many types of configurations according to:
Generally, the industrial racking systems are manufactured to order. The industrial racking components can be used for various types of racking systems as described below.
Selective racking, which is based on a single row of racking where all stored goods are directly accessible from the aisle.
Drive-In racking, which consists of multiple rows of racking with no aisle between each row. Vehicular access is only from the front end of each row of the racks while there is no access from the back end. The width within each row of racking is wide enough for vehicular access such as a forklift to drive into the row to load/unload goods. Loads are stored in tandem within each row of racks thus facilitating last-in-first-out inventory movement.
Live carton storage, which incorporates inclined roller beds that allow the cartons to slide from the loading area to the unloading area once a carton is removed from the rack, thus speeding up picking and loading speed.
Live storage racking, which is a compact structure with a slight incline and roller conveyors to slide palletised products freely, where loaded pallets enter the higher end of the racks and move securely along the roller conveyors by the force of gravity, at a safe and controlled speed with the help of the braking and safety systems until they reach the other end and is ready to be removed.
Mobile racking, which is an electrically operated racking system where pallet racks are placed on chassis or mobile bases guided through fixed tracks on the floor, allowing the racks to move along the tracks.
Satellite system, which is a semi-automated system where pallet racks are stored or retrieved using a pallet carrier that is driven by an electric motor and runs on rails installed onto the racking system. Operators are required to use forklifts to move the shuttles between different levels and control the motorised carrier’s activity through a handheld remote.
