All merchant customers require a fast turnaround from placing their order and want to get back to site as quickly as possible with the products they need, so time literally is money. Stakapal are accomplished at providing all builders merchants with systems that are designed to ensure sites are operating to their full capacity. When visiting any site their Technical Engineers will discuss stock-holding needs and the mechanical handling equipment to be operated plus lifting heights. They’ll also take into consideration any storage areas where items need to be loaded and unloaded by hand.
What types of Racking do Builders Merchants require?
Merchants frequently have Cantilever Racking for storing long product loads in their warehouse or yard areas and if configured correctly this type of system will maximise the available area as well as ensure 100% selectivity. Stakapal offer a range of internal systems or galvanised systems for external applications. Standard arms start from 600mm to 1220mm with loading capacities between 500kg to 2,000kgs dependent upon individual requirements.
Their Pallet Racking systems are also manufactured for both internal or external purposes with three different post types and a choice of beam levels available means they offer merchants a very economical storage option.
For hand-loaded long product storage and selection their Vertical Storage/ A-Frame and Pigeon Hole Racking systems means items can be kept in either a vertical or horizontal configuration dependent upon the available area. For warehouse and stores areas requiring pedestrian access to small part storage, boxed items or fixtures and fixings Stakapal’s Widespan/Longspan shelving systems can be customised to meet individual needs.
For trade retail merchandising areas Stakapal also offer shop racking that is tailor-made to the requirements of individual merchants. Products can be both stored and displayed in an attractive format whilst creating a smooth customer flow throughout trade counter areas.
