SEC Storage provided the design and installation of a high-density, mobile cantilever racking system, achieving maximum storage capacity at Kawneer UK Ltd’s manufacturing facility in Cheshire.
Our initial warehouse appraisal identified that a mobile cantilever racking solution would be the optimal system for Kawneer’s product type i.e. building materials in the form of long and awkward loads. To begin, SEC made preparations to the warehouse floor, cutting out the specified channels where the rails were to be installed. The cantilever racking was then mounted to mobile bases, with these bases then driven by a dedicated, three-phase motor along the channels.
The dynamic setup of our mobile cantilever racking solution allows for the opening and closing of various aisles via a programmed system, utilising the maximum cubic footprint of the warehouse and providing Kawneer with access to all of their individually stored pallets at any time.
Mobile systems can also allow for the usage of up to 80% of the intended installation space, making this a highly intelligent solution for those who choose it.
