Bespoke Industrial Racking Solution

Working closely with the client to understand SKUs and stock movements, Thistle designed an intricate Push Back racking installation to maximise every inch of storage capacity for finished goods, together with its pallet racking for the raw ingredients area.

Thistle designed the push back racking to work around existing structure of the extension, varying the heights and depths of the system to maximise the storage capacity whilst achieving the necessary aisle widths for their counter balance forklift.Thistle also delivered pallet racking with a Food Grade Z Beam profile to maximise hygiene and created a secure storage facility which was built around a section of the pallet racking to provide a safe area for storing nuts – segregating them from other ingredients and preventing contamination. Thistle used steel partitioning with roof and lockable doors to be capable of storing 4 pallets of goods across two levels.
