Optimised Warehouse with Two Tier Shelving Solution

Thistle Systems has enabled a specialist building supplies company to transform their storage capacity by replacing their existing floor over system with a two tier flooring solution.

After discussing their initial enquiry to extend the floor over system, we used our Max the Cube approach to demonstrate the improved efficiency which would be delivered by a two tier system.

With 5 shelves high each measuring 1000mm wide by 400mm deep, the two tier solution provided over 2200 linear metres of storage which was more than the existing solution, however the real benefit was in the accessibility and improved picking process.

As part of the project, Thistle designed the installation to ensure it met the latest building regulations, obtained the necessary building warrant and incorporated a pallet gate to the upper level to ensure the safe handling of components. Lighting was also installed to the ground level of the two tier shelving system.

As part of the design, Thistle Systems also incorporated its Maxi Cube pallet racking to accommodate bulkier items with varying beam lengths to increase capacity and maximise the available space.
