Choosing to invest in a multi-storey warehouse means making the most of the available space by installing high-bay racking with several walkway levels. Each additional level increases the storage surface area, thus increasing the number of operations while leaving more space available for offices, order picking, control, etc. Multi-level racking is also particularly suitable for storing a large number of references, which can also be arranged according to the rotation rate.
Effective Use of Space with Multi-Storey Racking
Multi-storey racking is the ideal solution for optimising both the floor area and the available warehouse height. The efficient use of height is achieved by creating different levels of overhead walkways, interconnected by stairs and gangways. Thus, operators can carry out their picking tasks simultaneously on each level.
The handling of goods at the different levels can be done manually or with the aid of one or more automatic handling devices such as conveyors, shuttles, rail trolleys. Each level is also secured by railings and parapets for the safety of the operators.
The flooring of the walkways can be either grating or chipboard, either rough or non-slip, depending on the customer's liking and needs.
Multi-storey racking is easily customised and can be adapted to specific logistic requirements.
Multi-storey Warehouse: All the Advantages of a Multilevel Choice
Space is certainly the main resource to be maximised thanks to multi-storey racking, which can fully exploit warehouse heights, but let's take a closer look at the advantages of this solution specifically designed to multiply the surface area available for storage.
With the same footprint, the capacity of the warehouse increases considerably
Heights can be fully exploited
High levels of selectivity are possible
The possibility of operating on several levels at the same time increases the performance
Customised, expandable and integrable solutions can support the company growth process
Metal racking systems are extremely robust, stable and durable
Modular safety systems can be integrated, with the possibility of inserting different protection and safety modules.
Thanks to the multi-storey racking systems, able to reach very high capacities per square metre, even the most bulky goods can be stored in extremely small areas compared to a conventionally equipped warehouse.
