Warehouse Racking Solutions are an essential part of all working environments.

  • The safety of the workers is the number one priority here at The Warehouse Racking Company based in Sandbach Cheshire. Not only does it show we understand what our clients want, but it also maximises efficiency and, therefore, productivity.
  • Warehouse Racking solutions may only be a minor factor in running a successful business. However, many warehouses are aware that they need to be on board to get the results they strive for, increasing their profits and being health and safety compliant.
  • Racking Solutions need to specifically designed for heavy-duty environments.
  • You need to seek professional advice to get your Racking right. For example, Racking and shelving for office use are entirely different to what you need in a large industrial environment.

These are a few of the Industrial warehouse Racking solutions we use:

Cantilever Racking - Cantilever Racking is a great warehouse racking solution for storing long items. - More often than not, elongated items are a problem and quite awkward to store. - Such items as timber, pipes and anything else of a long length and width will do well with this type of Racking. - Cantilever Racking can be tailored to your needs and can be added to as you may require in the future. - This type of system is ideal for a workplace that involves steel or timber.

APR – Adjustable Pallet Racking - This is the ideal warehouse racking solution for large amounts of stock. - These types of storage systems come without shelves which can rest across beams. Any item that can fit into a pallet is the ideal solution. - Adjustable pallet racking can be adjusted into many heights and depths, so it is suitable for any size warehouse. - To move pallets, you need access to stackers or a forklift truck to move to and from the Racking.

Drive-In Racking System - The drive-in racking system is the most popular storage solution. Its density can allow you to maximise the available space in your warehouse because it reduced the forklift operating isles. - If you have a large number of pallets, this is by far the best. There are two types: Single Entry Racks – these have forklift access to one side only. Double Entry – forklifts can access both sides. What is the benefit of Drive-in Warehouse Racking Solution? – Delicate products that cant be stacked – Large volumes of identical products this is probably the best way to store. – If cold or freezer storage is needed. – If you’ve large volumes of identical products and constrained space, then drive-in racking systems are perhaps your best bet when it comes to storage. - Drive-in rack design needs an in-depth inside of the products to be kept & their lifespan. This assures that they’ll be regularly employed in the correct order to avoid expiry & obsolescence. Drive-in racking units require detailed knowledge about the load ability of the forklifts, racks, and other materials handling equipment. The Warehouse Racking Company can advise you on this.

Very Narrow Aisle Racking (VNA) - When you have very little space, you need a warehouse racking solution that utilises every inch of your room without causing a hazard. VNA is the solution. - Very narrow pallet racking will condense standard pallet racking into a much smaller area. This will give you much more storage space, enabling you to store more products and give you the floor space; therefore, it will be less of a hazard. - The aisle space can be significantly reduced between the racks. This is the ideal racking warehouse solution where maximum storage capacity is required. With this, you will get more flexibility with the height and depth of the Racking. You can take advantage of the height in your warehouse. - With very narrow aisle pallet racking, you can combine automated and retrieval systems, which will help to improve the throughput further.

So what are the advantages of VNR?

They are completely selective- you can access all individual pallets, which allows for the increase of stock rotation. The floor space is utilised and therefore improved. Less floor space for the aisles means you will have more storage space. Picking rates will become achievable There is a higher chance you have the potential for automated and retrievable systems.

Consider This;

Very narrow aisle pallet racking requires specialised narrow aisle forklift trucks that can manoeuvre between the narrow aisles. ‘Man-up’ or ‘man-down,’ articulated or Flexi trucks are used to ensure precision in facilities using very narrow aisle pallet racking.
