Mezzanine racking, it also belongs to a kind of storage racks, in planning Mezzanine racks warehouse need professional rack manufacturers to design. But the planning and design of the Mezzanine racking warehouse and our common ordinary racks warehouse or there is a big difference, consider the basic elements are also very much, so, now follow Mracking to understand the Mezzanine racking warehouse planning priority consideration of the basic elements which?

The basic elements that are prioritized in the planning of a mezzanine type rack warehouse are as follows:

First – specifications

Mainly refers to three aspects, namely: size, load-bearing capacity, the number of layers. The size of the rack is generally based on the user’s demand for racks and goods to the size of the rack to set the conventional size: 2000 * 600 * 2000mm; the number of layers is generally set to four layers, but also according to the needs of the number of layers to increase or decrease; the general range of its load capacity in 300KG-1000KG, of course, can also be customized according to demand.

Secondly – mezzanine size and load-bearing capacity

The load-bearing capacity of the mezzanine is generally calculated on the basis of *kg/per square, and the maximum load-bearing capacity of the mezzanine is generally in the range of 1000KG/m2; the size of the mezzanine is generally designed and customised according to the area of the warehouse.

Third – net height

Here refers to the net height of the warehouse, the general net height of the warehouse is not less than 4.2 metres (except for special requirements, of course).

Fourth – safety distance

If one side of the mezzanine needs to be built against the wall, then the safety distance between the mezzanine and the wall needs to be kept at 100mm.

Fifth – mezzanine guardrail

The mezzanine guardrail must be designed and installed for safety reasons, usually the height of the guardrail is 1200-1500mm.

Sixth – material

Mezzanine shelves with materials generally choose steel plate, and plywood, and the steel plate of the highest price, quality is also the best; then is the plywood; of course, the choice of materials or need to be based on the user’s own needs to choose.

The three main elements of the planning and design of mezzanine type racking:

First: the amount of storage access

whether it is first-in-first-out or last-in-first-out access, access frequency or depending on the number of accesses, is to make the corresponding design storage racking scheme according to the data, and then reasonable storage.

Second: the shape of the goods

To know the weight of the goods can directly affect the load-bearing parameters of the storage racks, and the size of the goods will also directly affect the size of the racks, and according to the different goods, in storage will also consider the use of cages, bins, pallets and other work station apparatus to use, which in the planning and design of storage racks need to consider the shape of the goods.

Third: storage mode

In the planning and design of the mezzanine racking, storage is also a necessary factor to consider, because the storage of different goods, the corresponding choice of storage methods, handling equipment is also different. If a forklift truck is used for the operation, the distance between the racks will be affected; if manual storage is used for handling lighter goods, it is sometimes necessary to use a high lift truck or logistics trolley. In this regard, when planning and designing the mezzanine type racking, it is necessary to understand clearly which way the user needs to store the goods.

The columns of the multi-layered mezzanine rack are also divided into main and secondary beams, which have a more optimised material cross-section and also have a strong load-bearing performance.

3. Bolt fasteners

Bolt fasteners do not need to be welded, installation and removal is more flexible and beautiful and solid; furthermore, when replacing the warehouse or use of the site can also be recycled.

4. Fasteners

Fasteners are mainly used to link the two floor plates and beams, in order to strengthen the floor plate will not have the phenomenon of shaking, so that its multi-layer Mezzanine shelves more fixed and safe.

3. high space utilisation, good stability, expansion of the storage capacity of the warehouse, and multi-occasion application.

4. the requirement to build a combined rack platform field floor height minimum point shall not be greater than 4M.

5. goods up and down the floor can also be matched with lifting platforms, forklifts, cargo samples and other tools for operational operations.

Mracking here would like to say a little more: some basic requirements on the racks!

Requirements for manual access –

Manual access here means that when the goods need to be transported to the racks, it is necessary to rely on human resources to carry out the operation, but of course, you can also use a variety of handling tools to carry the goods, and then by manual handling on the racks; the upper attic can also be used with ladders, forklifts, hydraulic lifts, etc. to the second and third floors, and again transported to the location to which the goods are to be placed.

Requirements for smaller goods –

Generally speaking, smaller goods should be placed, so that not only can reduce the load-bearing pressure of the upper attic panels, but also ensure the safe storage of Mezzanine racks, so try to choose lighter quality, smaller volume of goods for storage, such as auto parts, electronic devices, etc.

Higher requirements for the warehouse –

General height range of each layer of the attic in 2M, warehouse height range in 4M above, this is based on: adult height more than 1.5M, and the height of the floor in 10CM, and plus the first floor above the space also need to consider the fire problem; such is the requirement design can also ensure that the fire and under the channel can have enough operating space.

In fact, if a rack warehouse is well planned, it can be based on the existing warehouse to maximize the use of warehouse space, but also to reduce the operating costs of the warehouse. But what kind of racks in the manufacture of factory before the need to go through a rigorous program design, only so as to ensure that the factory racks can warehouse to maximize the value of use.

3. to regularly check whether there is a collision during the operation and damage, if so, timely repair repair work.

4. in the Mezzanine rack system to work in a safe manner, must ensure the safety of the operating process (for example, in the mechanical access to goods, collisions may occur will be overturned to, cause safety hazards to the operator, etc., these phenomena must be eliminated)

5. to pay attention to the various connections of the Mezzanine rack system, period of maintenance, in order to ensure that it can be used for a long time.

Mracking Mezzanine shelf use precautions:

2, the racks should be used after a period of time to check, see whether the parts between the loose or destroyed, found to tighten and replace in a timely manner.

3, different specifications of the racks bearing capacity, so the racks must be placed in the racks of goods within the load-bearing range, heavy goods on the bottom of the racks, light goods on the upper layer.

4, the Mezzanine shelf need to use the lift for operation, which requires the use of the lift to be very skilled, the need for professional staff to operate, avoid collision with the racks when operating to prevent the collapse of goods.
