Material thickness ≠ storage rack quality

Date:Apr 02, 2020

When manufacturing and manufacturing shelves, many storage shelf manufacturers are different in materials and styles, and there will certainly be some deviations. And some shelves have different thicknesses, which are also made based on the carrying capacity of different products. In this case, the customer will ask, if the thickness is different, will the quality be the same?

When warehouse shelves appeared, they were welded with angle iron and channel steel. During the development of the storage rack, the pillars were developed from angle iron channel steel 5 fold column 7 fold column 9 fold. The pillars have stiffeners. Here we can find that during the development of storage shelves, the continuous improvement of mold technology and the use of mold hemming technology gradually increased the number of column flanges and stiffeners, thereby reaching the columns of the storage shelves. Therefore, the carrying capacity of the storage rack depends not only on the thickness of the material.

When recommending and designing storage shelves for customers, they will know the detailed parameters of customers' goods, pallets and warehouses, and then based on these data, what specifications to recommend or design the appropriate storage shelves to meet the customer's loading requirements. Each storage rack selects the appropriate materials, scientifically calculates large and small materials, and performs force analysis to ensure that they can meet the customer's loading requirements and avoid safety accidents caused by too few materials.

If the installation technology is not sufficient, store the goods in a dangerous range beyond the estimated carrying capacity of the shelf. In view of this, the shelf is easily deformed and the service life is shortened. Under heavy conditions, the storage rack can collapse and cause injury or death.

From a corporate cost perspective, the thicker the material, the higher the procurement cost. When buying storage shelves, choose the right material that meets your loading requirements, not the thicker the better.


The following OTS racking tell you how to avoid storage problems directly!

Adding rack damping equipment

In order to make the sliding smoothly, if the slope is long, in order to prevent the pallet cargo from sliding to the bottom and not toppling due to excessive impact, it is necessary to add a buffer device at the lowest slope.

Don't rack too high

Regardless of the type of shelf, reliability and operability are very important. In general, the height of heavy shelves is generally planned to be 6 meters, and the weight of a single piece of goods is generally within 1000KG. If the height is too high, a single consignment is too heavy, and its reliability and operability will be greatly reduced.

The above is a brief introduction to the guidelines that must be followed in a heavy shelf program. Heavy shelves are a type of shelf used daily. Due to its heavy weight and strong impact resistance, it is especially suitable for handling large warehouses. The warehouse area can be effectively used, and its loading and unloading capacity has been greatly improved. Therefore, it is necessary to strictly follow its guidelines when planning.
