Panel product suppliers are increasing the storage capacity of their warehousing facilities

Cantilever racking in panel product warehouse

Panel product supplier becomes adept at responding to the fluctuating demands of both furniture manufacturers and designers, with the range of decorative panel products available in the market continuing to expand.

Having supplied companies in the furniture industry for many years; Stakapal has developed the necessary expertise for designing bespoke racking systems that withstand the wear and tear imposed in such busy working environments. Distributors could hold thousands of product lines at any time, many of which must be available to their customers within 24 – 48 hours. Valuable stocks of decorative panel products, worktops, laminates, flooring and solid surfacing all require effective storage systems that will maximise their picking rates.

One of their recent installations at Hanson Plywood’s site in Halifax, West Yorkshire involved updating and adding to some of the existing Stakapal cantilever racking in their warehouse. Hanson Plywood imports, stores and distributes a comprehensive range of wood-based panel products throughout the UK, taking great pride in both the technical knowledge of their team and delivering excellent customer service levels. The original racks were initially installed at their site approximately 10 years ago, demonstrating both the durability and longevity of the Stakapal range.

“There is one simple reason we continue working with Stakapal and that’s through the expertise they bring to every job. They can use their extensive experience in the industry to improve our operations and increase our storage.”
Steve Webster
Operations Director

What is the best racking for panel products?

Panel products can be stored extremely efficiently on a cantilever racking system as it offers 100% accessibility to individual products. Stakapal designs and manufactures each system to suit specific pack sizes making their systems highly versatile whilst delivering a much safer working environment.

Conventional Cantilever Racking

Stakapal’s conventional cantilever racking is commonly used by the industry as it is designed for both the storage and selection of multiple lengths of product. The system is suitable for use with most fork-lift trucks and can be easily installed, adapted or even repositioned should your stock-holding requirements alter.

Guided Aisle Cantilever Racking

For storing products at even higher levels, their guided aisle cantilever racking systems will provide you with the additional capacity you need.

The runs of racking for this type of system are installed closer together to fully maximise the cubic area and operate with specialist trucks using a guide-rail system to avoid damage to the overall racking structure.
