Storage, Shelving and Racking Systems

When it comes to industry beliefs around centres and the ways in which they think about rack design, there are two simple distribution categories used to distinguish the types of racks used within their warehouses.

Both safety practices and risk mitigation are not nice-to-haves, they are must-haves and solution development.

Aside from enforcing standards to ensure the safety practices surrounding maintenance and reconfiguration of racks, the very need to increase efficiency is changing the way racks are designed.

The combined pressures erode commoditisation of rack systems, since the number of storage locations, aisle width and slab designs provide nowhere near enough information to properly specify a storage system.


According to Walter Scremin owner of OnTime Group, in order to boost safety, achieve compliance and cut costs, the design of racks and storage media must match the application as closely as possible.

“Successful rack users start with the rack system when designing any new facility. If a main part of your business is storage and handling, you should consider the rack before you even start with the building. But many people still try to fit the rack to the building. It’s like buying a sports car and then asking your wife and kids to get in. You should have bought a minivan.”

Between codes and the desire for optimum efficiency and productivity, rack systems benefit from a detailed exchange of information throughout a given project. Ferret has several different examples of racking and shelving systems used within the industry that can assist you pick the right rack for your warehouse, click here.
