The Underfloor Heating Company

 

Work in Progress

Mezzanine and office refit project – Basildon.

The Underfloor Heating Company in Basildon continues to expand, the alternative source of energy and underfloor heating systems to be installed in residential, commercial and retail environments as opposed to conventional radiator systems.

With increased demand it was apparent that they needed to take on another industrial unit and fit it out with additional storage and office space.

Storage Concepts was contacted to design and put forward proposals to install a mezzanine floor for office accommodation for sales administration, design and accounts, as well as utilising the remainder of the warehouse unit in installing high rise pallet racking for the accommodation of pallets of raw materials.

The Underfloor Heating Company continues to expand in a growing market and with the fast track service on design, quotation, proposals, specifications and installation that Storage Concepts provided they were able to offer their existing and potential clients continuous first class service and improved facilities.

Storage Concepts were delighted to be awarded the contract after completing designs, proposals and specifications to achieve the fast track timescale and within the budgets allocated. For more information contact Storage Concepts on 01664 410414 or use the contact form here.

Cantilever Racking

Cantilever Racking

Storage Concepts have recently completed a cantilever racking installation for a Global Logistics Centre in Nottingham.

Storage Concepts attended the client’s existing site to carry out an initial survey and review of existing stored materials. Following that review we were able to offer a design specification utilising new cantilever racking providing the most efficient use of the storage space within the new facility in Nottingham.

Following order placement materials were manufactured, delivered and installed within 14 days of order, allowing the client to achieve the required critical path for on-site installation, despite a lengthy delay in signing of the building lease agreement which delayed the racking order placement.

“We are extremely pleased with the cantilever racking installation completed by Storage Concepts” said a spokesperson ,”From our initial meeting and discussions with Colin Whittingham, through to erection on site by the Storage Concepts installation team, everybody that we have encountered in the process have been professional and easy to deal with. we would have no hesitation in recommending Storage Concepts services to others.”

Storage Concepts are now reviewing a number of other projects for this client.

Pallet racking – recent project

Recently installed pallet racking

Pallet Racking (Daventry) – a recent project for Storage Concepts

Pallet Racking installed at a site in Daventry by Storage Concepts Ltd has increased the storage capacity by utilising the available headroom within the warehouse.

The Pallet Racking was designed to maximise the height by following the contour roof elevation of the building to increase the number of pallets stored.  This has provided the customer with greater flexibility, full utilisation of the warehouse building height which has meant that they have been able to have a smaller, more compact stores and release more areas for assembly and production.

Storage Concepts range of pallet racking was utilised to maximise the opportunity which provides storage for euro pallets 800mm wide front picking face x 1200mm deep weighing 1000 kgs each, storing 3 x 1000 kg pallets on a 2.7m wide beam providing 3000 kgs storage per level.

The Storage Concepts range of pallet racking is fully adjustable and totally flexible and is designed to accommodate any size of pallet, any weight.

What are the Pallet Racking Standards

UK Pallet Racking Standards

Pallet Racking

There are no specific Government standards laid down for the manufacture and / or installation of pallet racking.  Each manufacturer designs and produces their own system based on their manufacturing capabilit, design standards and patents.

All UK manufacturers however are signed up to the SEMA (Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association) Code of Practice which dictates design criteria and also specifically assists and guides contractors in relation to best practice for onsite installation.

All pallet racking installations must be fit for purpose and as such are designed to support specific loads over a given area.  The racking designer will choose the product depending on the design loads and other criteria available from the client. This, together with information provided by the manufacturers technical support team, will allow the installation to be value engineered and designed fit for purpose with suitable specification of frames, beams and loads considering pallet dimensions and handling criteria.

Once the installation has been completed safety load signs would be affixed to the installation by the racking contractor for operational guidance.

It is then the operators responsibility to ensure that all personnel working within the new rack system are suitably trained and that regular rack inspections are undertaken to ensure that the installed equipment is maintained to the highest safety standards.

Storage Concepts recommends weekly on-site inspections by the client with a six monthly rack inspection by a suitably qualified outside agency.

What are the weight limits for Pallet Racking?

What are the weight limits for Pallet Racking?

Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking

Regarding pallet racking weight limits, there are many and varied limits available.  The maximum load allowed per pair of beams is normally 4 tonnes, but standard load is 2 tonnes where 2 No. 1 tonne pallets are sited next to each other.

Most pallet racking systems have a standard duty frame, a medium duty frame and a heavy duty frame with standard duty frames normally carrying 9 tonnes, medium duty 15 tonnes and heavy duty 20 tonnes, dependent on the heights and depths of the frames.

The general specification for pallet racking is the width of the bays, the standard bays being 2.7m wide, therefore 2 No. 1200mm pallets can sit on the beams giving a 100mm gap between each pallet and the end frames.  Depths of frames can vary but the most standard is 900mm where a 1m deep pallet will sit on the beams leaving a 50mm overhang either side, which is the ideal safety standard.  Normally 75mm is then left between the top of the pallet and the underside of the next beam level, which gives clearance for the pallets being lifted from the beams.

The frames can be any height to suit the warehouse they are being installed in and the frame depths can vary from 900mm to a maximum of 1500mm deep.

On systems where there are varied sizes of pallets, pallets support bars can be used across the beams, front and back, to store the pallet safely.

This can also be achieved with shelf panels but these have to be checked from the point of loadings and that they do offer a load bearing capacity.

Mesh shelf panels can also be fitted onto the beams and for stillage systems there are skid channels which are similar to pallet support bars but are a channel system so the stillages fit onto the skid channels safely.

All pallet racking is bolted to the floor for extra safety and safety racking clips are fitted into the beams and the frames for extra safety when the pallet systems are being loaded/unloaded.

Leg and corner guards can also be fitted for additional safety.
