Cantilever racks are highly load-bearing storage systems intended for storage of long and/or bulky storage materials. Such goods include, for example timber, wooden boards, metal sheets, sections, beams or steel elements, building materials but also scrap cars and all kinds of heavy loads.
Cantilever racking by OHRA is distinguished from standard racks using solid steel sections for all load-bearing elements. Thanks to this slim construction of our racks a high storage capacity can be achieved across a small floor space.
There are specific types of cantilever racks for every product and for every industry. They differ based on requirements, height, useable depth, load-bearing capacity or section thickness. All cantilever racks are produced individually according to customer requirements; they are equipped with a high-quality powder coat or hot-dip galvanised for outdoor storage. OHRA cantilever racks are available in different variants ranging from small racks for light loads to complete rack clad buildings, where the rack uprights simultaneously function as the load bearing structure for the roof and walls. Versatile accessories, such as beams for continuous storage surfaces without cumbersome intermediate supports or inclined arms for storage and retrieval using cranes are part of the company’ standard services. Additional services, such as racking assembly, statics calculations or preparation of drawings complete the range of services.
Pallet racks are by far the most widely used storage systems for many applications. In addition to conventional storage of goods on different types of pallets (e.g. Euro or industrial pallets) these racks are also suitable for accommodating other storage aids such as pallet cages or heavy tools. Pallet racks are used in many sectors and industries, for example in the building materials trade, haulage and transport companies, in dispatching warehouses or as a single storage system for heavy goods.
The sturdy pallet racks by OHRA are made of hot-rolled high-quality steel sections for high load capacities and safe handling. The beams have a 100mm pitch. For light and medium loads, we offer the P5 pallet rack, a cold rolled pallet rack system made of optimised steel sheets with IPG profile beams. A special offer of OHRA are hot-dip galvanised pallet racks for outdoor storage. These storage systems can be supplied either with or without a roof. All pallet racks are quick and easy to assemble and can be optionally extended at any time.
Rack-clad buildings by OHRA are the perfect fusion of building and warehouse system. In contrast to conventional warehouse structures, the uprights of the racking system serve as load-bearing substructure for the roof in addition to their actual function as a storage system, and can also be optionally used for attachment of the side walls of the storage building. In this way, significant cost advantage is achieved in comparison with conventional warehouse structures with additional racks installed.
Rack-clad buildings may be based on cantilever racks or pallet racks. A combination of the two rack types as the load-bearing structure is also possible. Depending on the intended use and requirements, rack-clad buildings may be designed as an open or closed construction. Closed buildings are completely enclosed with panels and equipped with doors or rolling gates. The design and construction of the roof and walls of rack-clad buildings are very varied. Trapezoidal sheets or light panels may be used for roofing, for example. The substructure may be designed either as lean-to roof or as saddle roof. For wall cladding, either trapezoidal sheets, sheet piling or sandwich panels are used. There are many design variants and warehouse types that can be realised using the OHRA racks.
Mezzanine floors by OHRA increase the existing storage area without the need of extensions or reconstruction measures. The additional floor space generated by the mezzanine floor can be cost-effectively and variedly used, e.g. as office area or workspace, as production or exhibition area or as an additional storage unit.
All OHRA mezzanine floors can be configured for a variety of requirements and loads, e.g. by means of different upright sections, beams and rafters (e.g. made of solid steel sections or optimised Sigma sections). Obstacles such as pipelines and power supply lines or windows and doors are taken into account. OHRA can easily design and build mezzanine floors with up to 5 levels. The centre-to-centre distance of the mezzanine uprights is between 3.5 and 8.5 m as standard. The bearing loads range between 250 and 2,000 kg/m². Greater centre-to-centre dimensions and bearing loads can be designed upon request. The mezzanine floors are completed by stairs with grating or wooden steps, screw-fixed bannisters, including hand rail and knee rail. Transfer stations in various designs and options are also available. The flooring material to be used on the mezzanine is plastic-coated chipboard panels or flooring with anti-skid coating.
Dynamic racking systems are modular rack systems which, in comparison with static racking systems, can achieve increases in storage capacities due to their type and technical components and thus accelerate the order-picking process.
In comparison with conventional racking, the initial purchase costs of a dynamic rack system are slightly higher. However, in the long run and with correct operation, the significantly higher economic benefits that the rack provides will pay off these investment costs. OHRA provides all typical systems, ranging from a cardboard flow racking to heavy-load pallet flow racking to cater for any different fields of application and investment budgets.
For vertical storage of long goods, such as sections, tubes, rods or strips, an OHRA vertical rack is the best solution. For vertical storage of chipboard sheets, the chipboard sheet rack is the first choice, particularly in cutting applications of wooden products. OHRA provides vertical racking systems for a large variety of applications and various industries. Vertical racks and chipboard sheet racks are an integral part of storage technology, particularly in carpenter’s and woodworker’s shops, as well as specialised wood shops and DIY shops.
Vertical racks by OHRA are used in applications where different types of long goods, particularly strips or tube sections need to be stored in vertical position. These may be supply racks, directly at the workplace, but also presentation racks in showrooms where various designs, dimensions or colour options are to be presented in a customer-friendly manner. The robust design of the rack uprights and transverse beams in tried and tested steel structures are also intended for high loads and are not prone to tilting. Depending on the type of applications, the racks may be delivered either as single - or as double-sided racks. The standard heights of the vertical rack are 2,100, 2,700 and 3,300 mm. They are applied depending on the goods to be stored. The useable depths are 450, 650 and 850 mm, the standard bay widths supplied by OHRA are 1,500 or 2,000 mm. For other dimensions, please send us a request.
OHRA shelf racks for storage of small parts and non-palletised storage goods. The galvanised plug-in sections are assembled without screw-fixings and is mainly used for manual removal of goods. The sturdy shelves are available in different widths and load-bearing capacities and are equipped with multiple chamfers.
The shelf racks are available in 3 different heights: 2,000, 2,500 and 3,000 mm. The rack widths are optionally 400, 500 or 600 mm. The individual shelves can be supplied for bearing loads of either 150, 250 or 330 kg, depending on requirements. The bay load is max. 1,500 kg. All OHRA shelf racks have been tested according to the BGR regulations. The shelves can be adjusted in grid heights of 25 mm. Also, available as double racks.
OHRA offers racking systems an externall outdoor warehouse, which not only create additional storage space, but also offer sufficient protection against the effects of the weather. The roofing of cantilever and pallet racks, for example for the storage of wood, ensures that the product remains dry and at the same time aerated.
OHRA offers various roof structures, all of which are statically calculated taking into account snow and wind loads. We supply Trapezoidal sheeting material fo the roof, we can also fit materials you supply.
