Below are some things that you can do to optimise your existing warehouse space.
Order picking directly from the storage location leads to small stock balances that can use as little as 10 percent of the available space. Create smaller storage locations for these items, free up wasted space.
You need to take advantage of all of the vertical space that you have available and reconfigure your existing storage system to take advantage of this space but it could be worth the effort.
Warehouses vastly improve storage, by optimizing the use of the vertical cubes. The vertical cube is all the free space above aisles, docks, and picking areas. A well-designed warehouse will exploit up to 85% of the available space. Don’t miss out on a major opportunity to profit from this free space. Provide a bigger pick face area, optimising use of vertical cube realisation.
2 Tier Shelving Systems, with walkway aisles, is a construction of shelving built into two levels. The Lower shelving is the support for the walkway aisles. The uprights are heavy duty and designed in order to carry the loads from the floor above.
Benefits - High density storage and increased Pick faces.
The Basis of a 2-tier installation is the framing itself striking through the upper level; They support both levels of shelves and the access walkways, built of heavy duty Frame uprights made of galvanized or powder coated steel.
2-tier Gives you higher storage capacity (up to double) more than standard shelving on the ground floor. With slimmer design floor support beams an additional second level of storage is also possible.Hanging Garments also work well with 2 tier systems
There are very substantial cost savings on the 2-tier construction as the floor and shelving are all built “as one” saving on installation costs.
With the density of storage space achievable, 2 –tier shelving installations can become the most economical choice.
