What Kind Of Industrial Racking Do I Need?

Apr 29, 2008
Industrial racking is not the kind of item that you walk into a shop, see one you like and take it back to the warehouse for a try. Before you can choose industrial racking that is suitable for your purposes you need to know exactly what kind you need. First, how much space do you have? You will be kicking yourself if you pick something too small, although not as much as you will curse your decision if you pick something too big for the room.

Second you will need to think of the dimensions of the items you wish to store on the racks. third, and very important is the weight the racking will need to hold. All industrial racking has a maximum load, and for heavy storage, an appropriate load bearing rack is essential or you will no doubt end up with broken racking. Equally, if you need to store light packages such as bales of cotton wool, super strong racking will be unnecessary and perhaps uneconomical.

It will be helpful to get advice from an industrial racking company to aid your decision making. Many companies offer such advice as part of their customer services. And with such an important part of warehouse infrastructure, it would be wise to ask for guidance. Some companies even offer a no quibble return if, even after taking professional advice, the industrial racking you chose is not suited to your needs. This is a great service and is a bonus, but rather than taking the chance of needing to send your racking back, it is better for you to get your order correct in the first place.

Although ordering industrial racking and arranging delivery will be a simple, painless process, returning unsuitable products will turn this into an ordeal. Instead of the simple process it should be you will order the racking, build it, decide it is no good for you, call the company to arrange a pick-up, dismantle the racking, wait for collection, order new racking, and hope you get it right this time. Just spend a little time ensuring that you choose the right racking initially and enjoy the benefits it brings.

Technological advances have brought software that allows the companies dealing in industrial racking to create a three dimensional computer design of the space you have available. You can then work with the company to ensure that you have enough racks of the right size and that you will have enough space between racks to manoeuvre your stock.

You can find a helpful industrial racking company with a simple internet search. But before you contact the company make a list of your needs, such as the space you have available, and the typical weight of what you store. This will speed up the selection process by letting the customer advisor whittle down appropriate products by a process of elimination. If you have decided to buy industrial racking, spend a little time and thought planning for your perfect storage solution.
