The following are the main points that need consideration as you request a quotation.
Load Capacity Level
It is essential that the racking frames and beams are of the correct dimensions, steel thickness and quality to hold the weight that will be placed on each level. If we know the weight that will be placed on each level, we will work out the details for you such as the number of beams per bay will be required.
Size of Space Available
This is the internal dimensions of the facility allowing for office space where required as well as the dimensions of the space allocated for pallet racking.
The height of the building is an obvious point but needs to be part of the calculation when requesting a quotation. In addition, the height of a loaded pallet is an important part of the racking design.
Type of Forklift being used
The capability of the machinery in use or the level of investment available for new machinery can often determine the height and design of the storage system that would be best for a specific space.
Whether a bolted or welded system is required
Pallet racking that is fabricated with a welded construction has a lower installation cost and provides maximum strength. Bolted pallet racking can be a less costly alternative. In addition, it can be easier to repair and to re-configure should requirements change.
