Industrial Pull Out Shelves

The client was looking to move 12 pallets of products which were being stored in 28.4m2 of floor space into a racking system. With a range of sizes, Thistle proposed their heavy duty pull out shelving which has a load capacity of up to 300kg on a galvanised shelf drawer & 700kg on a pallet drawer – perfect for engineering store environments.

Thistle designed an shelving solution which featured 12 industrial pull out shelves with additional storage for a further 12 pallets above in only 4.8m2 of floor space. The solution not only doubled the previous capacity, but achieved it in 83% LESS SPACE.

The shelving enables the client to store components either by size or by project dependent on their requirements. The pull out nature of the system not only enables them the full depth of the shelving to be maximised but also allows the products to be safely deposited and retrieved from the system.
