pallet racking system for building material

Cantilever racks

Our cantilever racking is ideal for storing long, bulky and heavy building materials, including timber, plaster-boards, concrete, corrugated iron or steel. We use hot-rolled standardised steel without any front-face supports, which ensures uninterrupted storage of different product sizes, all on one level. All our cantilever racking is manufactured individually and can be positioned indoors and outdoors, and fitted with a roof or wall if required.

  • Rack columns and cantilever arms made of solid, hot rolled IPE steel for bearing heavy loads
  • Double-sided racking available as an option
  • Horizontally mountable and detachable cantilever arms (K+H system) minimises impact to racking and avoids damage to stock

Pallet racks

Most construction firms find storing heavy and bulky goods on standard pallet racks to be a challenge. Most conventional pallet racks are at full capacity and max out their loading capacities.

So, we developed our P3 pallet racking system especially for the construction industry. It makes light work of storing heavy loads such as bricks, concrete parts or cement bags. Our pallet racks are constructed with hot-rolled steel profiles, making them suitable for bearing extremely heavy goods, even in large storage quantities..

OHRA pallet racking advantages:

  • The low-cost, flexible storage solution
  • Max bay load: 32,000kg
  • Max beam load: 5,100kg
  • Standard beam width uo to 4,500mm
  • Hot-dip galvanised steel for outdoor storage
  • High quality powder-coated materials for indoors

Rack clad buildings

If you need outside storage at a lower cost, a rack clad storage system from OHRA can give you the flexible storage solution you need. Our rack frames serve as self-supporting elements for the roof and wall, so there's no need for expensive construction or structural foundation work, while still giving you all the benefits of a conventional racking system.

We design and build our racking systems individually according to customer specifications. This means you get the ideal height, usable depth, load-bearing capacity and section thickness required for your needs. Our comprehensive service, including design and measurement and racking assembly, ensures we take care of everything.


Storage platforms

Whether you need an additional storage area, picking area, sales floor or workspace, our steel platforms are a low-cost way to double your warehouse space, without changing the existing structure. Our self-supporting plattforms can fit into any existing building and can be customised to suit your available space and needs. 

 

  • Handles standard payloads 250kg – 1,000kg
  • Distance between supports of up to 8.5m.
  • Suitable for dynamic loads with a stacker
  • Up to 5 floors of additional storage

Vertical Racks

For building materials such as moulding, profiles, bars or tubes, OHRA vertical racking systems are by far the most customer-friendly option. We can design vertical racks of different sizes for use directly in your warehouse or showroom, and with different designs, colours and dimensions.

Bauking

In a new OHRA rack clad building constructed from cantilever racks, customers of the building materials retailer BAUKING at the Lorup site can now find all timber goods centrally in one place. Compared to the previous storage solution, the racking system also offers significantly more capacity, allowing BAUKING to stock a larger number of different items. One challenge in the project planning was slopes of 0.7 percent in two directions for drainage of the outdoor storage area. To compensate for the slope, OHRA utilised a special roof construction: The roof arms of the racks are not connected to each other, but a "gap" of 10 centimetres remains between them. It is concealed by a flexibly attached ridge cap. This not only keeps the interior dry, but also prevents tensions and vibrations from being transmitted between the runs of racking.
