Design and construction of storage warehousing.
The warehouse is a typical twin portal steel framed structure with blockwork walls to dado height and composite insulated cladding to walls and roof.
Due to the potential hazardous nature of storing alcohol, the warehouse is designed and built under strict control measures to comply with the requirements of The Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations 1999.
The warehouse had to be designed at a certain height to fit out a bottling storage system. Compact vertical lifts were installed to achieve faster and simpler handling of more items in a significantly smaller area, whilst at the same time providing considerably improved working conditions for the employees.
Compact vertical lifts improves the stock handling process as the elevator is driven by cog wheels that run in homogeneous gear racks (rack and pinion), providing a very stable movement and precise positioning of loaded trays.
