Mezzanine racks have two types of layout, namely: a single rack combination and a high and low combination.

Single racks combination: When using a shelving product, we can choose any one of the three types of shelves, high, medium or light shelves, and this storage layout is very simple, only need to combine the shelves and the area of the site can be reasonably planned for installation.

High and low racks combination: This combination can also be divided into high shelves combination and low shelves combination. One type is a separate combination, that is, high warehouse shelves and low shelves each have an area. This installation mode is also convenient for the classification of storage goods; another category is the placement of light or medium-sized low shelves under the high shelves, this mode of operation is intended to make full use of storage space.

The difference between single racks combination and high and low racks combination.

Single rack combination: when the warehouse racks are used alone, only simple storage operations can be carried out.

Combined racks: Combined shelves not only have storage capacity but also have better use of space, to expand the role of storage, of course, this combination of racks is also a storage business that must take the layout of the way.

When we choose this kind of rack, the most important thing is to consider the choice of steel material. The use of steel with high corrosion resistance is most appropriate. Mracking using steel are generally selected to add the addition of Al, Mg, Ni, Cr and other alloys of special steel, such steel materials can further improve the corrosion resistance of steel. At the same time, the surface treatment of the anti-corrosion rack plays a very important role in the entire production process, such as pre-machining treatment, processing equipment debugging, post-machining treatment, the surface needs to go through passivation treatment, but also the need for anti-corrosion coating special process treatment, Mracking are generally surface degreasing, passivation, electrostatic spraying, and the coating thickness can be as high as 100-200 microns. Such a layer of dense protective film, not only played a role in isolating the role of external pollutants but also played the role of adsorption of the coating. For the problem of sealing the coating, Mracking also uses a high corrosion-resistant coating secondary coating process, greatly improving the sealing of the coating, not only that, but Mracking in the installation process also provides anti-corrosion supporting accessories and the use of daily operation and maintenance, so as to ensure that the storage rack corrosion resistance performance.
