Rack Protection for New Racking Solution

 

Thistle Systems has enabled one of the UK’s leading horticultural companies to deliver a storage solution focused on safety as it looked to capitalise on the rapid growth experienced as people spend more time in their garden and demand from retailers, landscapers and contractors grew.

Working with over 150 suppliers throughout the UK and Europe, as well as being one of the UK’s leading commercial growers, the client has seen dramatic growth in its warehouse and Thistle Systems has been supporting its growth with continued racking and rack inspections.

The gardening and landscaping sector was one of the industries to see rapid growth in demand resulting from the COVID pandemic and the client quickly identified the need to open a second warehouse with a focus on safety and protection of the products being stored.

With a high number of SKUs and the need to have 100% accessibility to pallets, Thistle designed a Engineered Pallet Racking solution which provided space for 540 pallets.

And, due to the fragile nature of many of the products being stored, Thistle developed a safety package to meet the client’s requirements, incorporating its market leading upright protectors and rack end barriers.

Thistle Systems also used their Max the Cube approach to warehouse design to maximise capacity and space utilisation by optimising beam heights and lengths to suit the heights and dimensions of the palletised products being stored.

Thistle Systems also used their extensive experience in project management to ensure the delivery and installation was carried out safely during the restricted working conditions faced during the pandemic.
