Industry-specific storage systems

For more than 40 years, OHRA characterises the technical development of economical and space-saving racking and storage solutions. OHRA invented and perfected the free movable arm, today a standard feature for carpentries. 

Cantilever racking in particular is the ideal storage system for long, heavy and bulky materials in the timber trade. OHRA cantilever racking creates high density storage capacity on a small footprint thanks to the sturdy but slim hot-rolled steel profile construction. Continuous storage levels without interfering intermediate uprights enable various product sizes and assortments to be stored on one level. Flexible boltless height-adjustable cantilever arms protect product and racking from forklift truck impact damage. OHRA cantilever racking is made to order to fit your warehouse and product storage requirements

Cantilever racks

The ideal storage system for long, heavy or bulky composite panels, such as chipboards, sawn timber packages or solid wood. To avoid damage to the racking and more importantly your stock, the cantilever arms are designed so that, on impact, the height-adjustable arms move up and sideways. All cantilever racking is custom manufactured to match the stored goods and will be delivered and assembled on request. The Ohra cantilever racking column, bases and arms are constructed from robust, hot-rolled steel profiles to allow for the safe storage of your goods. The high quality of the columns and arms ensure a durable and thus economical solution for your timber yard. OHRA cantilever racking can be placed inside or outside.

Your benefits:

  • Rack columns and cantilevers made of solid, hot-rolled IPE steel profiles
  • Rack columns are punched every 100 mm on both sides
  • No hidden cavities where rusting can start, as Ohra only use solid profiles
  • Can be fitted with roof, rear wall and gutter for external use
  • High-quality powder coating
  • Hot-dip galvanized design for outdoor storage

Pallet racks

Due to its robust construction OHRA pallet racking is unique compared to conventional pallet racking made out of sheet metal; Ohra racking is capable of offering a much higher loading capacity. The use of hot-rolled steel profiles for supporting components offers an important safety factor in your warehouse, especially in areas where staff or clients are. At the same time, the racking can be more economical because of the larger bay widths, therefore, less components are necessary than with conventional rack systems with a low load capacity.

The safe racking system for heavy loads:

  • Standard bay width up to 4,500 mm
  • High load-carrying capacity: Rack load up to
  • 32,700 kg, beam load up to 5,100 kg as standard
  • Hot-dip galvanized design for external storage
  • Optionally with roof, wall or as complete rack clad building

Vertical racks

For many goods, such as moulding, profiles, bars or tubes, vertical racking systems are the perfect and customer-friendly type of storage. Different items and sizes can be sorted and presented to be readily accessible in the warehouse or sales room. For upright storage of chipboard panels directly into the cutting area, there is no better alternative than OHRA´s robust chipboard rack. The connector system, which consists of square tubes, is fully developed and durable. For easy entry and exist of the products, high-quality roller conveyors are mounted in front of each rack stack.

Request for proposal


Automatic storage system

Storage optimization through the partial and full automation of loading and unloading processes. With high picking capacities, performance increases according to the “goods-to-man” principle. Depending on the requirement, whole packages or single panels can be taken and transported to the transfer station. 

  • Highest possible handling turnover for picking orders 
  • From manual to fully automatic control, expandable at any time
  • Interfacing to customer ERP software via a module
  • Storage and retrieval vehicle to service several lanes using cornering technique
  • In doing so, reduction of investment costs, optimal price-performance ratio

Borovi

The Hungarian timber trading company Borovi Impex Nagyker has more than doubled its storage capacity with cantilever racking from OHRA. Five 24 metre long cantilever racks with seven storage levels allow easier access to individual items compared to the previous floor storage system. Equipped with a roof and wall construction, the racks also protect the goods from the weather. With the new racks, the company can supply its customers 30 per cent faster and damage to stock has been reduced by 40 per cent.

Gerbrich

Gerbrich

The Czech door manufacturer Gerbrich was able to create high storage capacities in a small area for its production by using cantilever racks from OHRA. The racking system also enables efficient storage processes due to the fast handling of the goods and the good overview of the stock and thus a reliable supply to the production with the required materials such as chipboard or panelling.

Increasingly, companies are using the option of individual colouring for their racks. In this way, a corporate design can also be continued inside a warehouse or different storage areas can be visually separated. OHRA, the European market leader for cantilever racking, powder-coated the racking in various RAL colours for the new headquarters of "Houthandel van Deuveren" in Dedemsvaart, the Netherlands. The colours are matched to the façade so that the racks and building form a harmonious unit that reflects the modernity and quality of the company's services.

Trend Hout

Trend Hout

Trendhout, the Dutch specialist for exclusive garden buildings, has equipped its new logistics centre in Hattemerbroek with racking systems from OHRA. The focus of the system layout was to create as much storage capacity as possible on the available space. In just two weeks, OHRA installed a steel volume equivalent to six fully loaded trucks - resulting in a racking system with 390 meters of cantilever racking and storage space for 1,422 pallets. As a result, Trendhout has been able to significantly improve the efficiency and time required for order picking, stock levels are now organized and clear, and delivery reliability has increased.

Bati Nature

Bati Nature

Bati-Nature, the French carpentry / timber frame construction company / specialised in the construction of straw-insulated houses, has created new capacities for the storage of both wood-based materials and prefabricated wall elements with a special racking system from OHRA. Here, two 24-metre-long rows of single-sided cantilever racks form the walls of a hall-like construction. Between them remains a space of about 6 metres width that can be travelled on, in which the timber frame walls are stored upright. The cantilever columns support a roof that protects both the outward-facing storage levels formed by the cantilever arms from the weather and the floor storage zone between the racks. OHRA needed only about one and a half weeks for the assembly of the specially adapted warehouse building.
