Cost-effective all-purpose solution

We can help you find the perfect all-in-one warehouse and storage facility. Our rack-clad buildings deliver significant cost savings compared to conventional warehouse structures with additional racks installed. As well as offering superior storage, the uprights of our racking system act as a load-bearing substructure for the roof, and give you the option of attaching side walls to the building.

We've already helped our customers construct more than 1,000 rack-clad buildings, with the design of each building based on specific requirements. For example, buildings can be based on cantilever racks, pallet racks or a combination of both. Trapezoidal sheets or light panels may be used for roofing, and closed buildings are enclosed with panels and equipped with doors or rolling gates. Whatever you need to store, we have different design and construction options to suit you.

Cantilever rack-clad buildings

The roof structure for a cantilever rack-clad building is built with vertical uprights cut at an angle that suits the shape of the roof. The uprights of our cantilever racks are made from hot-rolled IPE steel sections, which gives them superior load-bearing capacity, and are constructed to support the roof. 

Most rack-clad buildings are built with a lean-to or saddle roof. We can also include a rain gutter with the roofing structure, as well as wall cladding, trapezoidal sheets, ISO sound insulation panels or weather-protection systems attached to the rear side of the rack.

Pallet rack-clad buildings

Like cantilever rack-clad buildings, the rack uprights of our pallet racks are made of hot-rolled U sections and bear the loads of the roof and wall structures. We take care of all consulting, planning, production and assembly, taking into account different weather requirements and also earthquake zones to ensure buildings are effectively anchored. The uprights of the roofing racks are cut at an angle and subsequently connected with the roof sections.

Buildings can be designed either as open or completely closed halls with doors and gates. Different roof shapes are available depending on land usage and rain drainage conditions.
