Racks and Shelving for Aluminium Storage
The best solution for Aluminium Storage
For over 10 years STACK-iT has had experience in advising and supplying storage racks to the aluminium industry. In these 10 years we have grown to be the leading supplier of aluminium and sheet racks to the industry, working closely with industry leaders such as Ullrich and Metalcraft. Our team has expertise in the best flow for yards and warehouses, which allows us to provide you with a solution that will transform your space and increase your efficiency.
From our broad range of storage solutions, the two key systems which STACK-iT recommends for aluminium storage is our Medium Duty Cantilever Racking and our Vertical Moulding Racks.
Recommended Storage Solutions
STACK-iT’s Medium Duty Cantilever Racking is the ideal storage solution for aluminium sheet. It has been specifically designed to ensure loading flexibility and stand the test of time. Being a modular system, it also allows you to easily expand your storage capacity as your business grows. The most common aluminium sheet rack set up is the 4 Post Medium Duty Cantilever Rack. A 4 Post Unit with 1500mm post spacing gives you an overall rack length of approximately 4500mm, allowing for overhang and making loading easy. If your product is flimsy we would recommend going to 900mm post spacings, as this will provide more support and prevent product damage. Should you require more weight capacity we also have a Heavy Duty Cantilever Racking system which is designed to store heavier loads.
For aluminium extrusions we would recommend our Vertical Moulding rack. Made from our 5000 Series Pallet Racking system, it is, like the cantilever racking, modular which provides you with flexibility should your product range increase. STACK-iT’s Vertical Moulding racks are an A frame shape; this allows aluminium extrusions to be leaned up against the rack. This design allows you to ‘show off’ your range of products. The most common aluminium extrusion rack set up is a 4800mm High Single Bay Vertical Moulding Rack. At 4800mm high, with a 5° incline, this rack can store extrusions up to 6000mm high without clashing. The single bay is 2743mm long and comes standard with 9 adjustable divider pins per level, which provides you with 10 product slots per bay.
Benefits of Great Storage
Having an effective storage solution in your business is essential to ensuring your operations run smoothly and safely.
Both the Cantilever and the Vertical Moulding rack systems will help to organize your inventory, which is a key part of making your customer’s shopping experience successful. An organized inventory also ensures that stock take is more accurate which allows you to make better purchasing decisions.
Safety is paramount in any business, and by investing in a storage solution such as Cantilever Racking or a Vertical Moulding Rack you can safely store your product in a way which decreases the risk of accidents in the workplace. For example, when aluminium extrusions are stored on a specially designed racking system they are less likely to fall over than when stacked against a wall, such falls could result in damage to staff, customers, or other stock.
