111Keeping Your Goods in Top Condition
Manufactured goods need to be taken care of. They have to be protected against water, dirt, pressure, dirt or dust. This has paved the way for people to use pallet covers which are needed when the products or goods are being stored or transported.
Manufactured products need to be kept away from water as much as possible. Like for example: rain when being transported or minor spills during storage. This is achieved when water resistant covers are used. There are even types of pallet covers available for extreme weather conditions.
There are different pallet bags that can be adjusted to differed sizes. This is a great opportunity for clients and users to have flexible and versatile covers that they can use for different products. Pallet bags have the ability to stretch to cover many goods with one piece. Therefore, they don’t have to use a lot of pallet bags to keep goods safe. This is economical for the buyer and manufacturer.
Pallet bags also come in different colours. Black and translucent ones are the most popular. This kind of variety helps the buyer to choose with ease. A choice of polythene or plastic is also available. This helps different products to be covered as required.
Thickness also matters a lot, thus buyers or clients will acquire what fits their needs. This is beneficial in terms of assurance and safety.
Pallet bags or covers are durable as they are made out of hard and tough material which does not tear easily. Therefore, even when under pressure, you can be assured that the material will remain secure.
Purchasing a pallet bag to store your goods is not that costly. Prices are well set to accommodate a whole range of clients. Prices vary depending on the quality and size. Items are also maintained at a low cost, thus making storage a lot easier.
The efficient use of a pallet racking storage system, pallets and material handling equipment depends on a number of factors.
Matching business needs with the appropriate pallet racking system is critical and entails asking the right questions as well as providing flexibility in solutions that can accommodate variables such as capital resources, anticipated growth and variable product lines. Choosing the right storage system involves a solution process, and that begins with considering the flow of merchandise. This will dictate your density requirements – how tightly the merchandise should be stored. From that key decision follows a series of specifications: the material and type of racking; pick systems; ancillary material handling etc. Warehousing with high density storage solutions usually have large or complete turnover of inventories during specific intervals or seasons. Merchandise could be stored in large bays with a few access aisles to maximise floor space.
Types of Pallet Racking for Storage Needs
1. Adjustable Pallet Racking
Easily installed, cost effective and versatile, adjustable beam racking is the most widely used pallet storage system and allows 100 per cent direct access to each pallet stored. With adjustable beams, racking can be re-configured to accommodate changes in the type of goods stored and wide aisles allow access by all types of truck, making specialised handling equipment unnecessary. Although racking is adjustable, once the beams are slotted into position in the frame uprights, an inter-locking structure of great strength and rigidity is maintained.
2. Double-Deep Pallet Racking
A variant on standard adjustable beam racking, double-deep pallet racking, as the name implies, allows pallets to be stored two deep but still accessible from the same aisle. By reducing the number of access aisles and using the space saved to accommodate additional racking, a double-deep configuration provides a highly space-efficient storage system.
3. Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking
By allowing fork lift trucks to operate in aisles of up to half the width required in conventional adjustable beam pallet racking, narrow aisle racking makes excellent use of floor space and maximizes the height at which goods can be stacked. Using specialised lift trucks in either ‘ man-down’ or ‘ man-up’ variants, narrow aisle racking is precision designed for safe, efficient load handling within the tight confines of these space-efficient aisles.
4. Push-Back Pallet Racking
Push-back racking is amongst the most space and time efficient pallet storage systems available. Pallets are loaded in sequence onto wheeled carts or rollers and are pushed back along inclined beds. Pallets can be stored up to 10 deep and when a load is retrieved the remaining pallets rolls forward into position at the picking face. Selectivity is “first in, last out” and with each product having a dedicated lane, dynamic push back racking is particularly useful in marshalling areas and for bulk storage and handling.
5. Drive-In Pallet Racking
Using minimal space for access aisles and lanes, drive-in racking provides a high-density and very space-efficient bulk storage system. With the first pallet into a lane being the last out, stock selectivity is restricted, but when loads are delivered and dispatched in batches, this is not a problem. Pallets are stored on runners in the depth of the racking and trucks enter to deposit or retrieve loads.
6. Mobile Pallet Racking
Pallet Racking can be easily configured for space-saving mobile storage. With the racking mounted on mobile chassis which moves along guide tracks set into the floor, the floor space for only one moving operating aisle is required to access all pallet locations. This space-saving design makes mobile pallet racking particularly suited to cold stores, as the maximum amount of space can be utilised for storage. Operation is simple with the chassis moving in a cascade sequence until the selected aisle is opened, all from a single push of a button.
7. Pallet Live Storage
Pallets are loaded onto dedicated lanes of inclined gravity rollers which are set at a fixed gradient. When a load is taken from the picking face, the next pallet rolls into position, with replenishment stock loaded at the opposite upper end of the lane. Pallet movement is regulated by brakes and speed controllers fitted within the roller tracks.
Despite the benefits of having pallet bags and proper warehouse storage, company owners should impose mandatory inspections and maintenance as often as possible. This is to ensure that the products are well stored and protected to provide good quality.
