Racking

Warehouse Racking

Promote speed and efficiency with a warehouse racking system specifically designed by WSL to match your exact needs. We will consider every aspect of your operation including your available space, your inventory size, type, flow and volume to create a warehouse racking system that will greatly improve productivity.

Whether you require pallet racking or racking for none palletized goods the right system designed with careful consideration will effectively streamline your warehouse operations and make the best use of your space.

Pallet racking is a storage solution for palletised goods. Within its framework pallet racking will house loaded pallets in high numbers across multiple rows and levels with loading and picking made easy with the use of a forklift truck.  Pallet racking as standard will consist of an aisle between each row of racks however, there are various pallet racking systems offering an array of configurations and built in features to consider. Pallet live racking for example is a compact solution designed to drastically increase storage capacity where space is limited. The racks incorporate gently sloped rollers within the deep lanes which enable gravity to automatically move the pallets from the side it was loaded to the picking face. It works on a First-in First-out (FIFO) basis which means stock rotation is done automatically.  

Another cleverly designed space saving pallet racking solution is the very narrow aisle (VNA) pallet racking system. The racks are built tall to make use of your overhead space with reduced aisle width between the rows to utilise the foot print area. Without much room for manoeuvre a specialist fork lift truck is used to navigate the aisles and reach the racks at height.  See further down this page for more pallet racking types.

 

Warehouse racking systems for none palletised goods

If your inventory is unsuitable for pallet racking there is a variety of warehouse racking systems to suit your items whatever the size, length, shape and weight. For long loads such as timber and pipes WSL can design, manufacture and install a cantilever racking system on which your long items can be stored safely. Robust yet very versatile the system can be used externally as well as indoors, it can be adjusted easily to suit if you change the products you are storing, it can be single or double sided and it gives you direct access and great visibility. Long heavy products can be placed across the supportive arms horizontally, and are loaded and picked using a forklift truck. 

Another way to store long loads is by using D-divider racking which allows items to be stored vertically leaning into the structure with D shaped brackets keeping them in place.  This is particularly suited to long items which are light enough in weight to be placed into the racks manually.

Carpets are particularly long and heavy whilst being delicate. A carpet racking system using multiple levels of deep running shelving slots is ideal for keeping carpet items safely stored. Like that of pallet racking,  fixed beams provide weight bearing support and to maximise storage capacity, the system can be single or double sided. You can load and unload carpet rolls with ease by using a special attachment on your fork lift truck.

Multi tier pallet racking

When looking to store reeled items such as electrical wire, paper rolls or plastic sheeting for example, these can be mounted onto coil racking which uses spindles to turn the coil so the item unravels when taking the amount needed as and when required.

A racking system which suits your space, inventory and commercial objectives can make a significant difference to your business.
