Pallet Rack Supported Warehouses
Major works of engineering in which the racking itself forms part of the construction of the building together with side and roof cladding.
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.
- Enables maximum use of available surface area without wasting space.
- Does not require the existence of a building prior to construction.
- Conventional or automated systems can be used.
The different profiles designed by Mecalux are used to build
clad-rack warehouses whose most striking characteristic is that
they do not require the existence of a building prior to construction,
with all the reduction in costs that this implies.
Here, the racks support their own weight, the product load and
the asymmetrical loads applied from lifting devices as in a
traditional warehouse. They can also withstand the weight of the
cladding structure along with external forces (wind, snow, etc.).
These warehouses are designed to work both at room
temperatures and in cold conditions (freezer chambers).
The height of clad-rack buildings
is limited to the maximum
height permitted in local
regulations or to the reach
height of fork-lift trucks or
stacker cranes. Warehouses
of more than 30 m high can
These warehouses are built to
work with either conventional
or automated processes.
Initially an analysis should be
carried out to determine the
characteristics of the warehouse
and how it is to be
linked to the other production
