The shuttle structure we designed and installed at Natures Way Foods comprises of 21 no. lanes with the majority of the lanes housing a maximum capacity of 5 no. pallets in both depth and height. The overall capacity of the installation now stands at 555 no. pallets total, in turn, maximising storage density whilst making full use of the facilities cubic footprint.
Due to the nature of the warehouse environment and the types of products stored within it, SEC also made provisions to attach the pallet racking and shuttle structure to the floor with chemical anchor bolts, suitable for food safe environments. These chemical bolts are ideal for installations in wet or damp conditions and are vibration resistant, even at temperatures below 0° – perfect for the dry stores environment.
SEC also designed and installed multiple bays of adjustable pallet racking. A standardised solution which was used for additional packaging storage. Our project at Natures Way Foods represents a first for SEC Storage in the form of a pallet shuttle system, and showcases our ability to explore a variety of options in order to find the best solutions for our clients warehouse facilities and material handling operations.
