PALLET RACKING

THE EPITOMY OF TECHNOLOGY IN YOUR RACKING

CONVENTIONAL PALLET RACKING

BACK TO BACKThe most preferred solution for storing pallets due to cost per pallet, but also the capacity efficiency of the space that can be accessed in all locations. The aisles between racks are defined by the rotation of the forklift (counterbalanced) or their movement (vna-stacker crane)


PALLET DRIVE IN-THROUGH- Traditional multi-depth FIFO/LIFO pallet solution with forklift input into the system. It is suitable for maximum exploitation of the space by limiting codes by number of pallets.  

         

DYNAMIC PALLET RACKING

PALLET MOBILE-The solution that allows accessibility to each pallet and at the same time increases the maximum capacity of the warehouse. Ideal for cold rooms that need to cool merchandise and not empty space. The system with wireless command moves to give access to the desired aisle. A pre-study of space and floor is required to welcome them.

SHUTTLE PALLET-High-capacity FIFO/LIFO multi-depth remoted solution using a robotic wagon. The system undertakes the transfer of pallets inside or outside. It enables different codes per level in height.                                                                                                                                                            

PALLET LIVE STORAGE-Dynamic high capacity multi-depth pallet FIFO solution. Pallets are placed on the input side and are gravitationally tilted to the exit side When receiving the first one at the exit, all the rest follow to the terminal point.

PALLET PUSH BACK-Dynamic high-capacity multi-depth LIFO pallet solution without the entry of a forklift into the system.Enables the storage of different codes per level in height.

ΝΕW UPDATED EURONORM FOR ADJUSTABLE PALLET RACKING

What are the details and scope of the EN 15512 standard and its update?

Scope: the EN 15512 European standard refers to the design and calculation of the structure. The basic details of this standard are:Official publication date: 25 November 2020.Standard that it replaces: EN 15512:2009 (UNE EN 15512:2010).Exclusive application date: 30 November 2021. 6 months of coexistence with the old standard have been permitted up until this date. From that date, 30 November 2021, it will be the only standard in force for the structural design of storage systems.

What does the EN 15512:2021+A1:2022 standard provide on structural calculation compared to the previous standard?

With regard to the previous standard, this one includes two significant new developments:It is a more conservative standard, meaning a more secure design of the racking, as a reliability analysis has been performed. The material reduction factor has changed from 1 to 1.1, which in principle means that racking structures are more secure.The updating of the standard is more consistent with Eurocode 3, which is a set of European standards that encompasses the rules and principles for calculating steel structures.There are also other noteworthy aspects of the EN 15512:2021+A1:2022 standard. It will mean a more uniform design for all European countries, with only the Netherlands deviating from the standard. It also offers a more conservative evaluation of test results. In fact, the updating of this standard for the structural design of adjustable pallet racking systems is strongly based on testing.The determination of profiles and spacers through simulation formulas and models is very complicated, which is why the new standard has been based on actual tests. 

EARTHQUAKE & RACKING IN GREECE

The design of shelves located in areas with high seismic risk such as Greece is much more complex than shelves located in other zones. The reason is that not only should they be able to withstand the dynamic forces (horizontal and vertical) and mechanisms of total or local collapse, but they must also avoid the collapse of pallets during an earthquake. The fall of pallets can cause serious damage to the property, people and shelf structure, not to mention the financial loss to the owner of the warehouse, which is higher than the cost of shelves and aid to withstand earthquakes. In 2016, EN16681 was adopted.This European standard sets out the structural design requirements applicable to certain types of adjustable pallet shelf systems,or other cargo units and are subject to seismic action. Specifically, it does not apply to mobile storage systems, drive-in, drive-through and cantilever shelves. The seriousness and specificity of the constructions in seismic Greece, leave no room for lack of epidermal treatment..
