Drive In Racking and APR

Thistle Systems agreed that drive in racking and standard APR would be the best solution for maximising their capacity.

Thistle designed a 6-block drive in solution with each block 8 pallets wide, 3 high and 4 deep to accommodate the bulk of the raw materials. Additional raw materials were stored in two runs of static APR racking to allow full accessibility.

As the finished goods area required 100%, Thistle proposed a 1200 pallet location solution featuring standard APR with narrow aisles to maximise the benefits offered by their aisle master fork lift truck whilst allowing order picking from open pallets at ground level.

Thistle proposed a high specification rack protection system to prevent stock loss and damage to the racking.
