Storage Shelf Design Requirements

03. 26, 2021

Shelves are an important tool for warehouse modernization and efficiency improvement, and the market demand share is getting higher and higher. With the rapid economic development, a large number of foreign-funded enterprises have poured into my country’s Yangtze River Delta and Pearl River Delta areas, which not only drove the development of the local economy, but also brought new management concepts and management techniques. At present, more and more automated storage is used in Storage Racks

The Storage Shelves Supplier briefly summarized several points that should be paid attention to when choosing storage shelves:

(1) Plant structure

When selecting shelves for storage equipment, the effective height under the beam must be considered to determine the shelf height. The position of the beams and columns will affect the configuration of the shelves. The strength of the floor and the flatness of the floor are also related to the design and installation of the shelf. In addition, the installation location of fire protection facilities and lighting facilities must be considered.

The shape and size of the stored items are directly related to the selection of shelf specifications, and the weight of the stored items directly affects the strength of the shelf to be selected. And the storage unit, in which unit is stored, pallets (pallets), storage cages, or single items have different types of shelves to choose from. In addition, the estimated total number of reserves must take into account the company's growth needs in the next two years. These data can be obtained through the analysis of the storage system, and we can also ask us to give some professional suggestions before designing the shelf.

(2) Accessibility

General accessibility and storage density are relative. In other words, in order to obtain a higher storage density, the accessibility of the sacrificial items must be relatively high. Although some types of shelves can get better storage density, their storage location management is more complicated, and it is often impossible to achieve first-in-first-out control. Of course, the best three-dimensional automatic warehouse can be developed upwards, with good accessibility and storage density, but the relative investment cost is relatively expensive. Therefore, which type of storage device to choose is a compromise of various factors, and it is also a strategy application. For the comparison of the accessibility and storage density of various types of storage devices, please contact us.

(3) Handling equipment

Storage equipment storage and retrieval operations are completed by handling equipment. Therefore, when choosing storage equipment, you must also consider handling equipment. The stacker is a general handling equipment, and the width of the rack aisle will directly affect the selection of the stacker, whether it is a counterweight type or a narrow aisle type.

(4) Inbound and outbound volume

Although some types of shelves have good storage density, the amount of in and out of the warehouse is not high, which is suitable for low-frequency operations. The high volume of in and out of storage is a very important data, which is an important consideration for the selection of the shelf form.
