No space? No problem !

The task of maximizing space in a chemical storage facility while adhereing to Health and Safety regulations inspired First Office Storage Concepts to design a Mobile Racking Systems for our customer. An option that maximizes storage in a limited space.

We needed to take into consideration various safety obstructions within the small and compact storage area ,which included extractor fans for extraction of excess chemical fumes. The fall of the slab to provide for a drain facilty, enabling cleaning and draining of surplus water and chemicals. As well as fire doors for evacuation.

With the above considerations in mind the best suited storage solution is the mobile racking system. The advantage of mobile racking is that it makes for efficient room volume while at the same time allowing immediate individual access to every container location. With the mobile system there was a gain of approximately 33% storage space, which optimizes the space effectively.

Mobile racking is a system where racking units are placed on a level track, making it possible to move heavy units with minimal effort. The system eliminates the need for permanent open aisles between every unit, the units are closely packed when access is not required, but can be readily moved to open up an aisle to allow access. The units are moved with a mechanical steering wheel wich is fixed on the side of each bay of racking .  All storage levels included steel mesh panels for safety and fire regulations
