Rack System for Storing of the Profiles of Various Lengths
A rack system GRADUS is a series of very compact racks for storing of profiles of the lengths 6,000 mm or 3,000 mm and other residual materials. The racks GRADUS can endure high load and they also take pride in their long operating life up to several decades. If you are looking for a long term and nearly undestroyable solution, GRADUS is the best choice for you.
Contemporary market offers a wide range of rack systems for storing of the goods on pallets by many European producers. What they have usually in common is the material – either thinner profiles respectively profiles from thinner sheetmetal which results in their lower load capacity for each rack floor, or thick I-profiles, with high load capacity but great construction height.
Such construction from thin sheet metal has however several grave disadvantages. First and foremost it is low endurance of the rack system in case of any lateral stress, e.g when the frame is hit by a fork lift, easy damage of the rack columns when accidently hit by fork lifts, relatively easy damage of the horizontal beams in case of random overloading of the beam, easy damage of the horizontal beams when stowing the goods into a storage unit, when the operating staff of the fork lift fails in estimating a correct height of the pallet with the goods and the pallet hits the horizontal beam. We may then very often see warning posts on the storage units “Out of order, don´t use”. Horizontal beams must be then exchanged, in case of damage of the columns it is necessary to make a complicated repair of the whole rack system.
The above mentioned faults lead our company to a development of our own rack system which can be practically used for many years. The fundamental construction requirement was first and foremost high load capacity and even more high endurance of the racks during everyday service. According to our long term experience there is no way how to prevent collision of fork lifts with the racks, mainly in the companies with limited storage area space. All this resulted in a development of our own modular pallet rack system GRADUS.
Rack system GRADUS is used for storing of the profiles from a length of 500mm up to a length of 6,000mm. The rack systems GRADUS 3000 and GRADUS 6000 are such a small family, classified according to a required length of stored profiles. A colour design of the racks is up to customers´ requirements in compliance with the RAL colour chart. The rack is delivered dismantled, ready for a final placement in the storage.
