In the second part of this series discussing the various industrial storage solutions available from Metalsistem Australia , we continue to focus on systems designed for light to medium duty storage requirements, this time looking at a cantilever racking system, and long span shelves.
Supercant cantilever racking suitable for light to medium storage requirements
Metalsistem's Supercant cantilever racking system features a totally bolt free design, and is produced from high tensile Sendzimir galvanised steel.
The modular construction of this cantilever system makes it ideal for a variety of light to medium storage requirements. It can be used up to heights of 4,000mm and with arm lengths ranging from 400 to 1,200mm.
Structural analysis of the Supercant cantilever system was completed with the assistance of the ANSYS (from F.E.M) program which has enabled Metalsistem structural engineers to optimise its load bearing capacity to cost ratio.
TS-3 long span shelving for archiving and other manually picked products
TS-3 long span shelving is particularly well suited for use as archive shelving, and can also be used more generally for manually handled products within high density storage applications. A manual picking system, it maintains full compatibility with the Super 4-5-6 series from which it was derived.
As with Supercant cantilever racking, TS-3 series components are manufactured from certified prime quality high tensile steel in accordance with EN10204 standards and the 3.1. certificate, and are fully Sendzimir galvanised. To guarantee durability, this zinc protection is present both on the exposed surfaces and internal faces of the product.
An articulated selection of beam options is available for TS-3 long span shelving systems to suit a wide range of:
- load bearing capacities
- beam lengths
- bay depths; and
- pitch settings.
Options for load bearing capacities are further extended by the 70mm and 106mm high beam profiles of the system, which are fully compatible with the Metalsistem range of shelf panels.
The upright in TS-3 systems is ridged, compact and structurally very efficient, and does not have sharp edges. As it is a closed profile it is free from problems associated with dust accumulation.
In addition, the 33mm pitch of the upright allows for refined shelf height adjustments so that storage volumes can be optimised as required. A patented connection system ensures that beam levels can be easily adjusted as storage requirements evolve.
