The structural characteristics of the three commonly used storage shelves

Shelves are widely used in modern logistics enterprises, in the actual storage, different specifications and weights of goods choose different storage equipment such as storage shelves. The following Spieth shelves factory to introduce the structural characteristics of three commonly used storage shelves.

First, shelf type shelves

Shelf type shelves are usually used for manual storage and retrieval, and have the characteristics of assembled structure and evenly adjustable layer spacing. The goods are usually also loosely or not very heavy packaged goods, the height of the shelves is usually less than 2.5 meters, otherwise it is difficult to reach with the hands. According to the load-bearing capacity of each layer of unit shelves, the can be divided into light, medium and heavy shelves, and the pallets are divided into steel pallets and wooden pallets.

Second, pallet racking

Pallet racking, also known as beam racking, or cargo bay racking, is usually a heavy-duty racking, which is the most common storage racking system. The first step is to carry out the unit work of container loading, that is, to group pallets of goods and their weight and other characteristics . Determine the type, size and dimensions of the pallet, as well as the weight of the single load and stacking height, and then determine the span, depth and layer spacing of the unit shelves. According to the effective height of the lower edge of the warehouse roof rack and the maximum fork height of forklift to determine the height of the shelves. The span of unit shelves is generally within 4 meters, the depth is within 1.5 meters, the height of high level warehouse shelves is generally within 12 meters, and the height of super high warehouse shelves is generally within 30 meters. In the shelf type warehouse, most of the high and low bins use forward battery forklift, counterbalance weight battery forklift and tripartite forklift for access operation. When the shelves are low, electric stacker cranes can also be used, and stacker cranes are used for access operations in super high rise warehouses. This kind of racking system has the advantages of high space utilization, flexible and convenient access and computerized management or control, which can basically meet the requirements of modern logistics system. It is widely used in manufacturing, third-party logistics, distribution centers and other fields. It is not only suitable for multi-species and small-lot goods, but also for small-species and large-lot goods. This kind of shelves is most commonly used in high level warehouse and super high level warehouse.

Third, through-racking

Pass-through racking, also known as through-aisle racking and drive-in racking, is a system with dense racking arrangement and high space utilization, which is almost twice as much as pallet racking. But the goods must be small varieties and large quantities, and the goods can come out only after the first. First, the unit work of container loading is carried out to determine the specification of the pallet, loading capacity and stacking height. From there, the span, depth and layer spacing of the unit shelves are determined, and the height of the roof rack is determined based on the effective height of the lower edge of the roof rack. The total depth of shelving in the wall area is controlled within 6 pallets, and the total depth of shelving in the middle area accessible from both sides is controlled within 12 pallets to improve the efficiency and reliability of forklift access. The stability of this storage system is poor, and the shelves should not be too high. Generally it should be controlled within 10 meters. In order to strengthen the stability of the whole shelving system, in addition to larger specifications and options, a traction device needs to be added.
