Clad Rack Buildings

Faster Construction | Limited Ground Preparation
Reduced construction time and limited ground preparation compared to traditional warehousing solutions, making a Rack-Clad building a worthwhile investment. Increasing ROI and maximising available time, profit and space.

 

Designed to be bolted onto a solid concrete base, these structures are faster to erect and require a fraction of the ground preparation compared to traditional storage buildings.

 

Clad in heavy-duty PVC-coated fabric, and featuring our unique StripFix® cladding system, the Pallet Rack Housing provides exceptional weather resistance for external storage applications. Our unique StripFix® system allows the cover to be more effectively tensioned, protecting against weather damage and creating a drum-skin tight finish. Designed to be sheeted in 2m wide PVC strips which are slid into position and individually tensioned, this allows construction to be completed in all weather conditions faster and easier than as a single sheet. Individual strips allow cost-effective maintenance of your canopy and is easily repaired where required.

 

Modular for Easy Expansion
Being 100% modular, these structures are versatile in relocating, extending or reducing depending on requirement.

 

Versatile Storage Solutions
You have a choice of either Pallet or Cantilever racking, Conventional pallet racks are the most versatile, popular system on the market. Giving direct access to each and every pallet, this storage system is the best solution for warehouses with palletised products, a wide variety of product types and a mixed rotation. We do not compromise on the strength of our structures, using only the highest quality materials sourced in the UK. Our in house designed heavy duty cantilever racking is especially designed to store long and heavy loads such as beams, profiles, pipes and timber. Our cantilever racking exceeds FEM standards*

 

Unique design features include heavy-duty click-fit connection arms, that are hooked vertically into the upright, creating a flexible position that does not require bolting in place. The hooking arms are designed for easier storage management and to prevent damage to the support arm and upright.


*On recent tests at the University of Salford - School of Science, Engineering & the Environment - Commercial Enterprise Unit, our racking arm not only met the FEM requirements but exceeded them.

Our PVC fabric has a life expectancy of up to 5 years depending on environmental conditions. The fabric is tested with respect to tensile strength, elongation, tearing strength, bursting strength, coating adhesion and resistance to flexing. The fabric is 100% waterproof and flame retardant to BS 7837:1996 (2015) and DIN 4102 (B1).
Clad-rack warehouses are highly suited for industrial storage. Colour options are white, grey and olive green. All colours have a solid and a translucent option. Other colours available by request but may increase turnaround times.
