There was limited planning involved as the layout was determined by the client and they provided a detailed floorplan.
Because the client had supplied a floorplan and design within their brief, Global had to check some crucial measurements on-site to ensure they were accurate and that everything fit within the space and enough clearances were left for forklift mobility, fire exits and doorways.
All dimensions and configurations were checked on the loading calculator to know what post and beam thicknesses were required to achieve 1000kg pallet space.
There was a slight delay in the installation due to final engineer checks of the concrete floor.
Once that was approved, Global liaised with the installation crew in setting a new date and then arranged the delivery of goods to be on-site the day prior. Overall, the installation was completed in 4 days.
All APEX standard sizes throughout.
7315mmH x 838mmD frames with 430mm row spacers
2743mmL beams for all standard bays and 3810mmL beams for bridge bays.
2350mm double end wrap barriers were used to protect all frames under the bridge bays. It’s the greatest form of protection for the frames as there is limited space on either side for the forklift when going through.
Corner guards were used on all end frames, other than the bridge bays.
All signs were fitted to the end of the runs at approximately 2,000mm from the ground (just above eye height) fully labelled with the beam and bay loadings specific to that run.
