The Project Details:
Square Footage: 115,000 sq. ft.
Products Installed: Structural drive-in and selective rack, roof supported over dock door rack
Their Problem/Our Solution:The customer needed a durable, high-density storage system for their new cold storage 3PL facility. Heavy duty structural drive-in and selective pallet rack were utilized to meet these needs. The drive-in rack system includes cant leg aisle uprights with reinforced upright columns & heavy duty lower horizontal braces to provide the needed durability in this difficult work environment. This high-density storage system had to be installed to support operation in a -10 degree freezer.
Our solution needed to be built to withstand a high volume of product in the cold storage facility, while maximizing utilization of the storage system & maintaining operational efficiency. A mixture of relatively shallow (mostly 2-3 deep) drive-in rack & selective rack provided the storage density needed while still allowing for efficient storage & picking. Roof supported over dock door rack was utilized due to the continuous dock leveler pit included as part of the facility design. The over dock door rack is used for storage of empty pallets & packaging supplies.
