In a warehouse or distribution center, you don’t need to waste space. While a warehouse may boast a voluminous amount of space, you need to use it all wisely. Large-scale facilities like a distribution center have all that space because they need to hold more materials. A rack supported structure allows you to construct a building where you have maximized your space. This will enable you to be efficient with company resources and build a structure with a smaller structural footprint.
What Is A Rack Supported Structure?
A building that utilizes a rack supported structure has its storage built into the structure of the building, as the pallet racking units act as the support system for the building itself. This saves money on construction costs since both can be completed at the same time. There is no need to hire additional contractors or construction workers. This project can run concurrently with the construction of the building, which saves you both time and money.
A rack supported structure also adds to the structural integrity of the building and can help fortify the structure. The building will be constructed in a manner that doesn’t expose your storage to the elements. In buildings that use a pallet rack structure, these racks are designed to allow forklifts ease when moving pallets in and out of the bays.
Why Would You Need To Use A Rack Supported Structure?
There are many reasons you could want to use rack supported structures in your newest facility. The biggest selling point of rack supported buildings is your ability to maximize the space in your warehouse. If your warehouse holds product for eCommerce websites, this could be essential for your business. eCommerce is growing year after year and warehouse-style distribution centers need to hold as much product as possible to fulfill the orders that come in.
Even if you are not an eCommerce facility, maximizing space is still critical for business. Saving space on square footage is essential for any business.
Industries That Can Benefit From A Rack Supported Building
As mentioned above, eCommerce warehouses, distribution centers and cold storage facilities are just some of the types of businesses that benefit from this type of system. Those types of companies need to be able to store large volumes of goods in an organized fashion. Rack supported structures also are well-suited for use in other industries as well. Industries like construction or materials that must be stored in a cold environment are also well-served by utilizing the durability of pallet racks.
