Recently, a regular client of mine that is located in Southern Minnesota let me know that they were considering acquiring a neighboring building. They explained that this building would be being used for a dry warehouse to keep up with their growing food packaging business. Before they pulled the trigger on the deal, they had me do a couple of warehouse layouts to see what their pallet count would be in the new warehouse space. Since they currently use a Frazier push back pallet storage system that they purchased from us in their refrigerated spaces, they understood the benefits of that pallet storage system. In addition, they liked that the structural rack because it can hold up to the abuse of their fast-paced business. Although satisfied with the push back style system we still compared a double deep selective system to the push back layout. After the analysis, the customer went ahead with the purchase of the building and the push back rack system. In about 7800 sq feet, we were able to store 844 pallet positions. This is about 9.2 sq feet per pallet. Two, three, and four deep push back was utilized in the layout. We were careful to slot the levels to maximize the storage in the varying heights of the building. If you are moving or expanding and would like to learn more about our pallet storage rack systems visit our material handling website or call 800-722-5908.
