Major works of engineering in which the racking itself forms part of the construction of the building, together with side and roof cladding. The ranking structure supports not only the actual goods and the different building elements but also the thrust of the handling devices and external elements: winds, heavy snowfalls, seismic movements, etc.
The maximum height of clad-rack buildings is limited by local standards and by the reach height of stacker cranes or fork-lift trucks. This said, warehouses of more than 30m high can be built.
- Storage at great height, enabling maximum use of available surface area without wasting space.
- Allows a wide range of goods to be stored.
- Conventional or automated systems can be used.
Mecalux is specialised in the design, manufacturing, sale and services of metal racking, automated warehouses and other storage solutions.
