Mobile Racking Systems are storage system’s or units, that can be maneuvered about the workplace, or work area. For this reason, mobile racking systems are generally mounted on wheels, rollers or can even be motorised. Motorised mobile racking systems will allow maximum utilization of a warehouse area, and still allow 100% access to the pallets. These types of racking systems are fixed onto electrically powered bases, allowing the system to move on rails embedded in the floor. The operator can open and access any aisle required with a single command. Mobile racking systems can be used to store different types of pallet loads, sacks, drums, crates etc.
There are several types of mobile racking systems available and some of these can include, push back racking, drive in racking, cantilever racking, and conventional racking.
Mobile racking systems can be :
o Electrically powered
o Mechanically assisted
o Manually operated
Electrically powered systems are operated by the push of a button which is mounted at the end of each run. When the button is pushed it automatically powers the high ratio gears which in turn drives the wheels and chains in the mobile bases along the floor mounted tracks, and requires no real effort from the operator.
Mechanically assisted systems use multi-ratio geared hand wheels which are mounted at the end of each run of shelving, and are used to turn the chains and wheels in the mobile bases along the floor mounted tracks. This makes it very easy to move even very large loads. » Read more: Mobile Racking Systems
