    Pallet Racking solutions for your business

    The Palletstor racking system, one of the most widely used pallet racking systemsavailable today, has evolved as a result of our in depth knowledge of storage andmaterials handling techniques gained during 35 years experience as a leadingmanufacturer.

    Easily installed, cost-effective and versatile. Adjustable beam racking is the mostwidely used of pallet storage systems and allows direct access to each pallet stored.By selecting from a wide range of sizes and duties for standard frame uprights and beams, Palletstor racking can beconfigured to meet precise criteria in terms of load volume and weight, accessibility, handling requirements andspace utilisation.

    Palletstor pallet racking in its standard form provides safe, cost-effective storage for many different kinds of goods andmaterials. But for increased versatility Palletstor also offers a range of practical add-on accessories (shown on pages14-15) to make the storage and handling of goods even easier.

    Beams can be removed and repositioned*when changes in the use of the racking occur.Although Palletstor is adjustable, once thebeams are slotted into position in the frameuprights, an inter-locking structure of greatstrength and rigidity is maintained.

    Each beam requires a pair of steel SafetyLocking Pins. When located they ensure thebeam is correctly positioned and help preventthe beam being dislodged during use.

    *Always check design perameters with supplier beforeadjusting beam positions.

  • Easily installed, cost-effective and versatile, wide aisle racking isthe most widely used of pallet storage systems and allowsdirect access to each pallet stored. With adjustable beams, racking can be re-configured to accommodate changes in thetype of goods stored and wide aisles allow access by all types of truck, making specialisedhandling equipment unnecessary.

  • Pick and Deposit (P&D) stations can be

    fitted at the ends of aisles,allowing controlled, efficient

    and safe load handling into andout of narrow aisle structures.

    By allowing fork lift trucks to operate in aisles up to half thewidth required in conventional adjustable beam pallet racking,Narrow Aisle Palletstor makes excellent use of floor space andmaximises the height at which goods can be stacked.Using specialised lift trucks in either man-down or man-up variants, narrow aisleracking is precision designed for safe, efficient load handling within the tight confinesof these space-efficient aisles.

    Guidance rails or wires fitted at floor level ensure precise positioning of trucks. This hasthe multiple benefit of improving safety, whilst minimising the incidence of accidentaldamage to racking as well as improving the speed and accuracy of load handling.

  • A variant on standard adjustable beam racking, Double-deepPalletstor, as the name implies, allows pallets to be storedtwo deep but still accessible from the same aisle.By reducing the number of access aisles and using the space saved to accommodateadditional racking, a Double-deep configuration provides a highly space-efficientstorage system.

    This first-in, last-out system, used with an efficient stock management system canoffer the advantage of the increased storage density.

  • Drive In racking systems Palletstor drive-in racking provides a highly space-efficient solution to the storage and throughput ofpalletised goods.By dispensing with access aisles drive-in racking provides a high-densityof storage in a given area to increase capacity by some 60-80% overconventional aisle racking.

    Pallets are stored on guide rails in the depth of the racking and forklifttrucks enter these storage lanes to deposit or retrieve loads.

    Access can be from one end (the true drive-in configuration) or fromboth ends (drive-through, for improved stock rotation).

    Racking heights up to 11 metres allow the full height and floor area ofthe building to be used to provide maximum cubic storage space.

    Drive-in racking - the ideal solution foroptimum space utilisationwithout requiring specialisthandling equipment.

  • Effectively utilising floor and cubic space, dynamicPush-back racking is amongst the most space andtime-efficient pallet storage systems available.Pallets are loaded in sequence onto wheeled carts or rollers and arepushed back along inclined beds.

    Pallets can be stored up to 4 deep on carts or 10 deep on rollers andwhen a load is retrieved the remaining pallets move forward intoposition at the picking face.

    Pallets are retrieved on a first-in, last-outbasis and with each product havinga dedicated lane, DynamicPush-back racking isparticularly useful inmarshalling areas,and forlong-term bulkstorage andhandling.

    Carton live storage or flow racking operateson the same principle as pallet live storage,but is used for stock which needs to behand-loaded and picked.Live storage systems reduce order picking times and help

    minimise errors, as not only are items presented precisely at thepicking face, but effective management of the throughput and

    stock levels of goods can also be easily maintained.protected,silver-based.

    The angle of incline of the roller trays,the size and number of rollers within thetrays, and the load capacity of thesupport frames, are tailored to the sizeand weight of the items stored.

    Low profile design allowsfor extra lift/clearance. Carts interlock to preventjamming and to controlpallet descent.Accommodates up to6 pallets deep.

  • Pallet Live RackingWorking on a first-in, first-out basis, dynamic Live Palletstorprovides extremely high levels of storage density in a given area.Pallets are loaded onto dedicated lanes of inclined gravity rollers which are set at a fixedgradient. When a load is taken from the picking face, the next pallet rolls into position,with replenishment stock loaded at the opposite (upper) end of the lane.

    Stock rotation is therefore automatic with the minimum of fork lift truck movementsrequired to handle the flow of goods.

    With pallet separators and brakes fitted,each load is segregated within thelane, preventing pressureaccumulationor crushing.

  • Specialised storage

    Pallet Shuttle system

    Whilst providing the ideal means of storing palletisedloads, the versatility of the Palletstor system meanslarge, bulky or simply awkward to store items can beaccommodated using the most accessible andspace-efficient methods.Combinations of standard components and accessories with specialisedbespoke items create successful solutions to what may initially appear tobe the most difficult of storage problems.

    Raised platforms and tiered systems also provide a cost-effective means ofutilising the height of a building thereby maximising the storage capacityfor a given floor area.

    Shuttle storage is an alternative to Drive-In, Push Back or PalletLive racking systems. These systems, though efficient, are limitedby the length of the storage lane that can be practically achieved.

    The shuttle storage solution overcomes this by storing pallets within a system that canoperate to greater depths. The racking features guide/support rails which run the depth of

    the rack structure on which an automated shuttle travels.

    The shuttle is easily moved between lanes by a standard fork lifttruck. Pallets are loaded onto a shuttle at the front of the

    lane, which transports the pallet down to the otherend. The in-built sensors on the shuttle detect

    the position of previous pallets and placesthe new load at a predetermined distancefrom them, before returning to thestart face.

    The shuttle movements are sent via theradio remote controller allowing the forklift

    truck and driver to be released to other tasks whilethe shuttle operates.

  • Palletstor Barrier Rails have been developed to alloworganisations throughout industry to protect equipmentand facilities which are vulnerable to accidental forktruck damage.

    As well as protecting racking andshelving in busy warehouse orfactory environments, Barrier Railssegregate and protect fork lifttruck battery chargers,vending machines,conveyors, factory orwarehouse offices.They also serve as safetybarriers in loading baysand to demarcatedoorways andpedestrian areas.Barrier Rails helpcompanies comply withthe requirements ofcurrent Health & Safetyregulations - to make theworking environment safer.

    Barrier Rails for racking and equipment

    Create more storage space without increasingfloor space - by building upwards!Raised platforms and tiered shelving systems provide a cost-effective means of utilising the height of a building for storage,thereby potentially doubling the capacity of a given floor area.

    With integral walkways, stairs, safety rails and any number of shelfpositions, these raised structures can be used as finished goods orcomponent stores and also for order picking, where powered orgravity conveyors can be incorporated to move the selected goodsswiftly through and on to despatch.

    The strength, structural integrity and versatility of these structuresis provided by Palletstor and Longspan heavy duty shelving rangeswhich can also be used to create versatile wide-bay open shelvingor binning systems in conventional floor-level configurations.

    Storage platforms

    For staff safety and to minimise fire risk, overhead walkwayscan be constructed from perforated steel planks or steel mesh, for increased light penetration, improved ventilation andefficient sprinkler operation.
