We tend to categorise industrial storage equipment using the following terms:
This generally comprises short-span bays housing a number of shelves from which products are usually hand picked. Shelving can be built as single-tier, multi-tier or high-rise systems. It can also be built in mobile systems to increase storage density
Generally comprises wider span, and deeper bays to store bulkier, longer or awkward objects. It is often therefore heavier duty. Racking can also be built as single-tier, multi-tier or high-rise systems, and can be mobilised to increase storage density.
Industrial Pallet Racking
This refers specifically to the storage of pallets loaded and unloaded by forklift trucks, cranes or mechanical pickers.
