The client was looking to maximise the storage capacity within its main storage area whilst maximising accessibility and minimising picking times.
Thistle developed a solution which included 80 bays of shelving, combined with 6 bays of heavy duty long span, and a dedicated storage area for specialist heavy duty chrome Kitting Trolleys which are used to pick components for projects in the semi-conductor industry.
Thistle recommended changing the depth of the shelving to 500mm, introducing a longer span of shelving, incorporating some small components drawer storage and maximising the height of the area by using a 3.3 metre high shelving system with 10 shelves per bay to minimise the dead space between shelves. The end result was a shelving solution which offered higher density storage, increased capacity and improved accessibility within the minimum footprint possible.
