In a mobile racking system, instead of being secured to the warehouse floor, the racks are mounted to electrically-powered mobile bases – bogies – which run on special hot-rolled cast steel rails, securely attached to the concrete slab.

Each bogie contains four direct-drive, low torque, high inertia motors to provide even and uniform drive. All bogies feature structural protection devices to absorb any accidental impacts from forklifts. In addition, structural side members protect the base and power cables, and help keep the wheel units aligned correctly and moving in the same direction.

Mobile racking systems are equipped with numerous light sensors which ensure the racks can only be operated when aisles are completely clear of materials handling equipment, people and stock. Integral safety features include trip bars which, when activated, cut the power to the motors and bring the mobile rack to a controlled halt within a short distance. Emergency stop buttons are also fitted to the front of the mobile racks, and electrical circuits are protected with circuit breakers.

Aisles can either be accessed using manual controls, or can be opened via Vehicle Mounted Terminals on forklifts.

The mobile pallet racking superstructure includes:

  • Stronger ColbyRACK beams and uprights
  • Special end frames
  • Heavy-duty baseplates
  • Flexible back ties, allowing the racking to sway slightly when moving

The design practice used for mobile racking superstructures differs from conventional static pallet racking, though there is some commonality to the design practice used by Colby when designing for light seismic conditions.
