The Importance of Pallet Racking

The efficiency of your business, and its success, will depend heavily on how well you meet your customer’s requirements. A warehouse with adequate storage space, based on demand, will help you in achieving your objectives. Unfortunately, extending a warehouse or a factory is expensive and intensive in terms of time, money, labour and materials.

Pallet racking positions your stock in such a way as to keep it off the ground, thus avoiding the potential for product contamination and damage. It offers our valued customers and clients a series of extremely important advantages.

  • With the potential to store rack systems over each other, businesses gain storage space without losing floor space
  • Your company becomes more productive and efficient. Staff can locate and pick out goods both quickly and easily
  • The sturdiness of pallet racking systems make them ideal for storing goods of any type, either light or heavy
  • The improvement in organisation makes your workplace much safer and can play a role in reducing potential accidents

Whatever your requirements might be, a pallet racking system is a modern facility that is also reusable when it comes to modification. We’re here to help clients in Crawley, Croydon, Dartford, Redhill, Slough and Sittingbourne, and those in the surrounding Hampshire, Kent, Surrey and Sussex areas, to maximise their potential at a fair and competitive price.

Warehouse Pallet Racking

For storing loads with or without pallets and installed with single-sided or double-sided runs separated by wide aisles to accommodate forklifts. Available in multiple configurations for a perfect fit with full functionality. Choose the frame uprights and beams in a choice of sizes and duties to meet volume, weight, accessibility, handling and space criteria.

This is a flexible style of pallet racking which we can adapt to the specification and layout of your premises.

Narrow Aisle Racking

Maximise storage by reducing the aisle space between racks and optimising the clearance height. Space should be seen as money and, with the use of specialist forklift trucks, your business will benefit from a precision design that promotes safe and efficient load handling. The tighter confines of this pallet racking system overcome most space-related storage issues.

The design team at Gatwick Forklifts can create an efficient VNA system alongside a detailed quotation and cost breakdown.

Mobile Pallet Racking

A powered mobile pallet racking system could be the perfect choice for newly built premises where a company needs to maximise the amount of available storage space. With only a single working aisle needed to access every pallet, the system utilises upwards of 80% of your storage capacity and is suited to cold store and conventional warehouse storage operations.

We build this system on bases which move on inset rails that can be operated with buttons, by foot or from forklift cabs.

Dynamic Pallet Racking

This system helps our clients to get the best from floor and cubic space with a pushed-back design that is one of the most efficient of its kind. Ideal for palleted loads of the same product type with medium turnover volumes that aren’t impacted by date. Each product will usually have its own lane. This pallet racking requires no specialist handling equipment.

A “first-in, last out” configuration sees pallets removed from the pick face so that those remaining can roll forward.

Adjustable Pallet Racking

Versatile and adaptable, this type of pallet racking helps you to organise your inventory with ease. It is a system that can be altered to tie in with changes to your business, but with a basic design that is initially tailored to the space you have available. If employee safety matters but you have a keen eye on customer service too, this is the perfect system for you.

We have already installed adjustable pallet racking across a range of businesses in Reading, Crawley, Croydon, Dartford, Redhill, Slough and Sittingbourne, and at commercial properties in the surrounding Hampshire, Kent, Surrey and Sussex areas.

Drive-In Pallet Racking

A pallet racking system designed to maximise floor capacity using a bulk stacking principle. Instead of stacking pallets on top of each other, the drive-in system allows you to store your inventory on rails. Compared to a conventional racking system, you could save as much as 85% of your floor space with this type of high-density pallet storage installation.

Drive-in pallet racking also has a “first-in, last out” design that is highly adaptable to deliveries made in large batches.

Bespoke Pallet Racking

Not all racking systems come in off-the-shelf designs and some products won’t always fit on a standard pallet. Gatwick Forklifts can work with you to plan, design and install a bespoke pallet racking system that is unique to your business logistics and operations. We work closely with you to build up the clearest understanding of your needs and requirements.

From there, we assist with cantilever, shuttle pallet, carpet or hanging garment racking installations, to name just a few, which can truly transform factory or warehouse operations.

Pallet Rack Protection

With barriers available which comply with current UK Health & Safety legislation, we can assist in the protection of pallet racking, forklifts, charging points, machinery, workspace and offices. Gatwick Forklifts can also demarcate walkways and doorways, paying strict attention to busier areas of your business premises and, of course, well-known danger zones.

We can supply and install:

  • Protection Barriers
  • Tubular Barriers
  • Armco Barriers
  • Double-Rail Barriers
  • Sigma Barrier Rails
  • Tubular Bollards
  • Upright Corner Protection

Anti-Collapse Mesh

As a business owner in a potentially dangerous environment, we understand how important it is for you to protect your staff and to reduce the potential for accidents. Items falling from a stored pallet, or from shelf beam level, can cause serious injury to personnel. Mesh safety screens and anti-collapse systems are essential for use with our pallet racking.

Please feel free to talk to us about anti-collapse systems when we come out to discuss your racking requirements.

Racking Maintenance and Repair

If your pallet racking is damaged, unsafe or doesn’t comply with current UK Health & Safety legislation, we can assist you with a maintenance and repair service. The personnel at Gatwick Forklifts are registered with the Storage Equipment Installers Registration Team. Our project managers have experience in meeting and exceeding current SEMA standards.
