Leading Austrian timber merchant, M. Hechenblaickner Holzhandelsgesellschaft (Timber Trading Company), has doubled the storage capacity at its central warehouse in Graz through the use of cantilever racks from OHRA. Handling items which are up to 6m long, 1m wide and 3000kg in weight, the racks are mounted on carriages - only the aisle from which goods are to be removed opens for the forklift. OHRA was responsible for the assembly of the entire rack system. This included the installation of the tracks required for the carriages, which took place outdoors before the construction of the actual hall. Of the total of ten 60m long cantilever racks with four to five levels and a total height of up to 9.2m, two were permanently screwed to the floor. The remaining eight were mounted on 58m long carriages from OHRA. The carriages are electrically powered and can be driven apart with a remote control operated from the forklift. Only the desired aisle opens - enabling the storage capacity of an existing area to be almost doubled. The storage system also provides a significantly improved overview of the available goods. At the same time, access times for the articles have been significantly reduced - orders taken in the evening can now be delivered the next day. As the packages of goods no longer need to be shifted as frequently it has also been possible to prevent damage to products.
