SHELVING & RACKING SHELVING SOLUTIONS


Providing maximum storage capacity is not the only criteria to be considered. How users access the shelving needs to be considered, there is no point having the capacity if you can’t easily use it. Narrow aisle widths will restrict the numbers of users who can work at the same times, also sufficient working space should be allowed for equipment to be used, such as pallet trucks and stepladders, valuable space can be utilised.


Once you understand your bay profiles you can start to plan how to use them within the space available. You will need to take into account the position of doorways, windows, fire exits etc. along with ensuring adequate lighting along aisles. In long runs of shelving, cross aisles should be allowed for to allow users to quickly move between runs without having to walk to the end of aisles.


Cross aisles help cut down journey times in picking operations helping to increase efficiency and improve fire escape routes.


Understanding our client’s storage requirements is vital in offering value for money and the most practical and beneficial products possible. Whether the need is for high density storage of industrial items, maximising retail stockroom capacity, designing usable library schemes or managing records storage in an office – we can help you achieve a cost efficient and practical storage solution.


Determining the shelving you need starts by fully understanding your stock profile, this is essential in ensuring the storage solution is designed to suit the size of the stored items. Often there are large areas of wasted space where existing racking or shelving has been supplied to suit the largest item stored, even though the majority of items may actually be smaller than this. Having bays of different shelf depths to match the stock dimensions should be considered to maximise available space.


Specifying the correct shelf size is important, ensuring the whole width and depth of the shelf is used to the maximum. Different bay widths can be specified ensuring multiples of different sizes items can be stored within the run. For example by measuring the stock size it is easy to choose the correct size of shelf to suit multiples of the stock; e.g. women’s shoe boxes are typically around 200mm wide and 6 boxes would sit perfectly on a 1220mm wide shelf but men’s shoes boxes are 255mm so a 1100mm wide shelf is more applicable.


Mechanical access equipment allows for higher shelving to be considered, utilising the full building height.

USEFUL SHELVING TERMINOLOGY 1. BAY - Module between a pair of frames.


2. RUN - A series of shelving bays connected length-ways. 3. SINGLE SIDED RUN - A Single depth of shelving.


4. DOUBLE SIDED RUN - Two runs built back to back, not necessarily of the same depth, but sharing a common ‘spine’.


5. LEVELS - The number of storage levels in the shelving height.


6. AISLE - Space giving access to the picking or loading faces of shelving.


7. GANGWAY - Space for movement of transport but not giving access to picking or loading faces.

Using all of the available height is a simple way to add significantly more usable storage area, easily and economically, within the same footprint area. This maybe restricted by the weight of the items being stored and the implications of manual handling regulations but by using manual and mechanical access equipment this valuable space can be utilised.
