Maxi Cube Pallet Live Racking

Thistle Systems have demonstrated the flexibility of its Maxi Cube Pallet Live Racking by creating a bespoke system has enabled a company to move pallets between their manufacturing and their new warehouse facility quickly and easily.

Many companies would have looked at the ground level of the manufacturing facility being 2 metres higher than the warehouse as a major problem and potentially consider lifts or an automated process, however Thistle turned this into an advantage and used the floor levels to feed the gravity based pallet live racking solution.

Thistle designed two separate systems – a three lane system measuring 15.5m in length to feed up to 36 pallets from the manufacturing to the warehouse and a two lane system measuring 3.2m in length to accommodate 10 pallets.

As well as transforming the efficiency, the pallet live system also provided an effective buffer storage system.
