Apart from the modular steel shelving systems and the corrosion resistant galvanized finish units, Rapid Racking also offers stainless steel shelving units and wall shelves as well. The stainless steel has a high resistance to corrosion too, but it is preferable in areas where hygiene is greatly important.
Racking and shelving have definitely taken a different connotation today, when storage is not about volume any more, but about speed and efficiency. You don’t need a pallet racking system that can simply store as many pallets as you need in place, but a system that allows for quick loading and retrieval of pallets, a system that will help you increase the efficiency of your warehouse or factory operations. Rapid Racking has acknowledged the particularities of each business’s storage needs and racking requirements, which is why we offer a huge range of frames and beams that can be configured in multiple ways, as to accommodate a large spectrum of requirements.
However much the focus shifted from storage capacity to fast product movement and rapid order fulfilment, with a further emphasis on increased efficiency of warehouse operations, some businesses, especially start-ups and small businesses don’t require advanced pallet racking systems or customised solutions, which is why we also provide complete kits which fit pre-determined pallet sizes and quantities. Our kits can suit both standard euro pallets and UK pallets, which are wider than the European standardised sizes.
On the background of today’s warehouse operations and targets, pallet racking is not all about styles and configurations, pallet types or loading weights, but also about space optimisation. More specifically, it’s about height utilisation, as more and more businesses are experiencing space limitations. This is why we, at Rapid Racking, go beyond the simple offerings of racking frames and beams or complete kits, providing our customers with designed solutions as well. For larger projects, racking kits cannot possibly meet the particularities and requirements of each warehouse, factory, stockroom or any other environment you need storage for. A bespoke solution means a racking design that makes the most of the available space, while also moulding onto the particular type of loads and products you’re handling.
The versatility of pallet racking systems makes them greatly suitable for a range of applications and environments and also one of the most effective storage solutions, but it can also make it difficult for businesses to identify the right product for their needs. Unless you’re going for the racking kits, which make buying easier, configuring your own system of frames and beams can be tricky. However, we have a team of expert designers and qualified sellers on call, who can help you find exactly what you need right there and then or, if your project is quite large, they can arrange for a site visit and customised design.
