Steel/Metal trade

Cantilever Racking

The storage of metal is a particularly difficult and demanding task. For more than 20 years OHRA characterises the technical development of economical and spacesaving racking and storage solutions.

OHRA invented and perfected the free movable arm, today a standard feature in the metal trade. The Cantilever arm moves on impact, saving potential damage to your rack, forklift and staff.

The arm end is rounded as a further safety feature. An adjustment screw is provided to allow adjustment to the horizontal plane of the supported load. Easily adjustable arm heights by the use of an OHRA quick realease patented securing device. All support beams are manufactured from high quality hot-rolled steel.

The OHRA Cantilever product range for the steel and metal trade involves “light” racking for the storage of aluminium and tube material, and “heavy” racking for solid material, heavy sheet metal and coils with a single weight of up to 15 tons.

With different solutions we adapt the racking technology according to the individual flow (e.g. coils in standing, flat or hanging position) and the corresponding transport system (fork-lift truck or crane).


Mobile Racking

Mobile racking systems do not need aisles at all. Thus provides the highest room exploitation. Operated by radio control or by pushing a button, the racking system opens at the place where you want to access your goods. Cantilever racking can also be transformed into a mobile racking.


Full automated warehouse

OHRA designs, plans and builds your automated warehouse as your preferred supplier. This includes software connection for your intended computer system.


Storage Technology

Further products complete the range for the storage of steel and metal.

Beside stakes and vertical racking there is of course the pallet-rack, from standard design (for pallets) to a high capacity application i.e. for the Construction industry or the management of heavy metal coils.

More important in today´s warehouse is the effective use of available cubic space. Therefore, mezzanine floors are an important factor when space is a at a premium. To pick goods from two or more levels enables effective use of the available space.


Rack-Clad Warehouse

There is an increasing requirement for external storage area for steel and metal. From standard roofing up to fully enclosed or semi-enclosed buildings.


Racking with inclinable arms

Racking with inclinable arms are serviced by overhead crane. Invariably, long material will be manually handled. We can supply this range with: Load protection and a top storage facility. For delicate products we can include a PVC dampening strip to reduce impact between product and the storage arms.
