The company had been block stacking the packs of timber in the facility, however, with business growing, the company was looking to increase the capacity of the product being stored, whilst enjoying 100% accessibility and ensuring the safety of its staff.
After carrying out a full site survey to assess the dimensions of the building, the products being stored and the forklifts being used, Thistle developed a solution featuring 7 double bays of heavy duty cantilever timber racking with 4 levels to each bay.
To ensure the products were stored safely and could be accessed by the side loading forklift, the cantilever arms were sized at 1200mm, each with a 1000kg capacity and capable of storing timber lengths in excess of 5 metres.
The solution almost doubled the storage capacity in the warehouse whilst providing full access to 100% of the products.
