Supply, Delivery And Installation Of Pallet Racking And Anti-Collapse Mesh

The Project

This project covered the supply, delivery and installation of pallet racking including meshed backing.

Our client has engaged us for several projects varying in scope and this was one of the smaller jobs we carried out for their hire operation in Glasgow. Three bays of pallet racking were required to provide easily accessible, safe storage of hire products and equipment.

Our Client

Speedy Hire plc. are one of the UK's leading tools, equipment, PPE and site consumable hire providers. USS has worked with Speedy Hire for several years now and this particular project was for Speedy Hire, Glasgow.

The Challenge

Like all Speedy Hire’s locations, the Glasgow warehouse needs to operate under a very efficient regime. The warehouse floorspace offered ample storage but as business increased, it became apparent that not only could the floorspace become untidy and unsafe, operational efficiency would be impacted if storage requirements were not addressed. With Speedy Hire’s usual foresight and attention to detail, they decided that pallet racking would be the solution to the problem.

The USS team know the Glasgow site well and were able to provide a solution that ensured the pallet racking would deliver what was needed.

The final scope covered the supply, delivery and installation of 3 bays of pallet racking, each of which is 5000mm (high) x 900mm (deep) x 2700mm (long). There are three beam levels per bay with slatted decks on each level, providing a weight loading of 2000 kg per UDL (uniform distributed load).

To take into account the walkway to the rear of the racking bays we employed the use of steel anti-collapse mesh to prevent any items falling into this area and presenting a hazard to people and property.

And Finally

Speedy Hire now have more storage for their hire products along with a tidier and safer warehouse. Operational efficiencies around storage in the warehouse have been improved for the business going forward.
