The retail sector is one we find ourselves returning to time and again. With on-site storage space at a premium, retail outlets have to squeeze every last centimetre out of their warehouse or stockroom. This drive for efficiency has to be matched by accessibility and logistics, with both the regular arrival and picking of products, as well as hundreds or even thousands of Stock Keeping Units (SKUs).
In many ways, retail storage solutions are some of the hardest projects we work on, as they require particularly careful consideration of traversal, workflows and how the racking could be expanded in future. But in this sense, they’re also some of the most satisfying, as we get to flex the muscles of our designers and installers. Having worked with Asda, Tesco, John Lewis and more, we’ve proven our ability to install retail racking systems that satisfy every one of these demands.
While the flexibility and density of wide aisle pallet racking is a popular choice, we also regularly install multi-purpose retail storage systems with a variety of different uses. These include multi-tier systems for fast picking of small items across multiple levels, live pallet racking for fast FIFO picking from a single face, and narrow aisle racking for larger retailers with specialist vehicles.
In conjunction with our other divisions – including Durasteel Fire Protection and Mezzanine Floors – we can also provide a range of other services under the auspices of a single project. Our mezzanine floors are capable of supporting additional racking, offices, sorting areas and more, while our industry leading passive and active fire protections will protect your products and your personnel.
