SEC Storage were invited – after completing the design and installation of a multi-tier racking and garment hanging system at the company’s facility in Trowbridge, Wiltshire a number of years ago – to propose a solution in order to extend the existing multi-tier with the addition of an extra floor. SEC’s solution focused on the expansion of the structure into a two-tier system, making full use of the warehouse cube and also allowing for the continuation of the garment hanging conveyor.
In order to prepare the structure for the specified works, SEC looked to remove the existing hanging garment track and support structure on the 1st floor, providing access for the commencement of the mezzanine and rack build. The new mezzanine floor extension was built to a width of 3,504mm – matching the existing multi-tier structure.
Once the new tier was installed SEC looked to extend the garment hanging track up to the top tier. A new inter floor lift was installed from Level 1 to Level 2, offering an 800mm clear entry walkway for pedestrian access and a 600mm width allowance for garments. Control panels were then installed to both the 1st and 2nd Levels for up and down garment travel.
