Warehouse Performance Evaluation Methods

The cladding rack system will not only meet the need for shelves, but also eliminate the need for the roof and exterior for the warehouse. 


What is Curtain Wall Warehouse?

In case of a need for a warehouse-only building, the warehouse shelf system is designed as a single carrier without investing in any building, and it is a shelf system obtained by mounting facade purlin, facade panel, roof truss, roof purlin and roof panels on the rack system. is called.

The cladding rack system will not only meet the need for shelves, but also eliminate the need for the roof and exterior for the warehouse. Thus, it allows to install shelving systems without a building.

In the curtain wall system, the rack legs serve as a column, so this system prevents the loss of space arising from the columns and beams required for the building, at the same time, the curtain wall storage rack system provides the maximum benefit from the space to be used, and saves space, as the warehouse shelves can be made at the desired height. prevents. Today, a facade cladding warehouse rack system that reaches 40 meters in height can be made.

Wardrobe rack system warehouses are generally planned by contractor companies on a turnkey basis. In addition, since this system is in a disassembled structure, it is very advantageous compared to other building types in cases such as moving the warehouse to another place or expanding / contracting where it is.

The curtain wall storage rack system allows all kinds of product groups to be stacked in accordance with any storage method and stored under desired conditions. If we classify them according to the standards

DRESS + AS/RS (CLASS100-200)
It is used in projects where full automation is required, when the reach of manual stackers is not enough.
It is a system that is effective especially in warehouses where pallet speeds are high when 15m and above height is used, and is used very intensively with curtain wall warehouses because it is very restrictive and difficult to implement such a system in a finished closed building.

Applied when using manual narrow aisle stackers.
The height can be reached up to 16.50 m under the scissors, which is the highest height that can be reached by using a manual machine, but when the space utilization efficiency is considered as the investment cost per pallet, it is an economical system; Approximate costs: around 80-100 $/pallet
Area utilization rates are: 3-3.5 pallets/m2.

Space utilization efficiency is very low in this type of warehouses, which is the most economical dressing rack system.
It is generally preferred in cold and frozen warehouses.
The time to commission the warehouse is very short; about 30-60 days.
It is a rack system with a high investment cost per pallet; approximate costs: 90-110$/pallet.
The area utilization rate is : 1.5 pallets/m2

Although it is not a separate shelf class according to Fem standards, it is a stacking method that can be used together with manual stacker or stacker crane machines in all the above-mentioned classes, depending on pallet entry and exit speeds.
Manual or automatic operation options can be selected according to pallet entry and exit speed and investment budget.
It is a very effective choice in cold/frozen storage investments.

Dressing warehouse system

You have kept your investment on hold. You have examined the curtain wall warehouses, but you still have not decided.
In that case Below is the summary list of benefits I suggest you reconsider.
By making curtain wall warehouse shelf system;

  • Maximum storage in minimum space
  • A more economical investment
  • Faster build(warehouse) build time
  • Warehouse commissioning in less time
  • Since it is a modular system, the system can be extended in case of additional need.
  • More efficient use of existing forklift trucks with the growth of the system in the same area.

In this system, when the pallet 80x120x230 is accepted as a standard;

  1. In the system using forklift: 1.5 pallets/m2
  2. In the system using reach truck: 2,5 pallets/m2
  3. In the system using VNA: 3,5 pallets/m2
  4. In the system using Vna+shuttle: 4,5 pallets/m2
  5. In the system using as/rs: 4,5 + pallet/m2

It is possible to stock up.

Compared to steel buildings, which are much more economical than reinforced concrete buildings, the material usage rates are quite advantageous as seen below;

Approximate usage amounts of steel building basic elements,

  • Column+cross: 35-40 kg/m2
  • Facade purlin: 12-15 kg/m2
  • Scissors + purlin: 20-25 kg/m2
  • General average: 60-65 kg/m2

Usage amounts when the dressing shelf system is made,

  • Column system: all savings
  • Cephe aşık :%10-20 tasarruf
  • Makas+aşık :%10-20 tasarruf
  • Genel ortalama :%30-40 tasarruf sağlanmaktadır.

I think you now have the knowledge to make the right decision.

All you have to do after this stage is to decide on the right power to undertake your project, trust and watch your magnificent building rise.
