Article variety at a glance
The Dutch timber and building goods retailer Brentjens have significantly expanded the storage capacities of its collection centre at the Haelen location with cantilever racks from OHRA with a total length of 186 metres. OHRA also supplied a 3m deep “pigeonhole” rack with compartment dividers into which rods and wooden strips can be "inserted" as a special construction - customers standing in front of the rack can immediately see the cross-section of the stored goods.
High load capacity for plates and long goods
With the new cantilever racks, Brentjens has gained a lot of space for storing panels and long goods. The 6m high racks offer six storage levels, each of the 1.2m deep cantilever arms can carry up to 755kgs. All components of the racks are painted in the desired colour “light grey” (RAL 7035) and thus fit harmoniously into the overall look of Brentjens.
Double deep rack with compartments for strips and slats
To store and present the large number of different strips, battens, and construction timbers for the customer clearly, Brentjens added a 12m wide “pigeonhole rack” to the cantilever racks: There are two pallet racks, almost 2.6m tall, connected one behind the other. Both frames, each 1m deep, are connected to each other by a 1m long spacer. This creates a double deep rack with a compartment depth of 3 meters.
To obtain a continuous storage area, OHRA installed chipboard as floors in the storage levels. They are divided by 18mm chipboard that Brentjens installed themself. This creates compartments of different widths into which strips, and slats can simply be pushed lengthways. Each compartment is filled with just one type of article - so the customer can see the different cross-sections directly and can quickly access the desired goods. The top of the rack is also used “classically” as a pallet rack and offers additional storage space for a wide variety of materials.
