1. A Cabinet Decision by Linde

Customer:

Linde Refrigeration

Location:

Sydney, New South Wales

Background:

The 2000m2 warehouse was a completely new facility for Linde Refrigeration in Sydney, a manufacturer of freezer and chiller showcases for supermarkets and small stores.

Special Requirements:

The racking needed to be designed to allow the cabinets to be put away and accessed by a special Linde Forklift, without any damage whatsoever.
The forklift is custom-fitted with a special lifting attachment and a mast capable of extending to 8m. Each rack bay needed to be sized and designed to carry loads of up to 2000kg.

Storage Requirements:

Linde Refrigeration gave storage ideas a specific brief of requirements for storing refrigeration cabinets, based on their experience throughout the world. The company needed to maximise the available space and use all airspace in its 8m high warehouse.

2. Our Storage Solution

Storage Ideas designed the warehouse layout to maximise storage while allowing easy forklift access to every bay. The application of both Selective and Double-Deep Racking in a three-story configuration provided Linde with the necessary storage capacity.

The precise clearances aided by custom-made fork spacer bars, alleviates damage to the load during operation.

3. Customer Benefits

Linde Refrigeration is very happy with its new world-class storage facility.

Non-Pallet Storage

  • Raised Storage Areas

    Floor space can be doubled by using Colby rack as a fast and inexpensive means of constructing a free standing raised storage area. Colby raised storage areas can be decked with a wide reange of flooring materials to suit application and budget.

  • A-Frames

    Colbyrack A-Frames provide an economical means to space-efficiency store long loads.

  • Hardware Storage

    While cartons, neatly stacked on pallets are ideal loads for pallet racking, in the real world, loads come in a variety of awkward shapes and sizes. Lengths of timber and piping to fragile goods like sinks and toilet bowls are just some of the real-life storage problems that can be solved using Colbyrack.

  • Cantilever Rack

    Long and heavy items such as steel or timber pose a different storage problem to conventional pallets. Used in conjunction with specialised handling machines capable of lifting and placing wide loads, Colby cantilever rack provides strong, reliable and space effective storage.

  • Archive Storage

    Colbyrack can be used as heavy-duty long span shelving for cost effective storage of archive boxes, Optional stepped beams allow particle board to be flush-mounted providing strength, rigidity, and space savings.

  • Carpet Storage

    Carpet is another difficult product to store and handle. Storage Ideas has the solution.
