Axis Solutions provided racking solutions to The Box Vault @ RSS, designing a storage facility that maximised the available space.
Racking solutions for a growing UK business
Removal Services Scotland is a growing removal and storage company. One of the core services that they offer is secure document storage from their central Scotland base. The Box Vault @ RSS is a leading provider of document storage and retrieval services. They offer a document management service across the whole of Scotland. They specialise in the storage and management of health, financial, property and investment records across all sectors.
Their newly built document storage facility in Livingston offers the best conditions for the long term storage and retrieval of business archive documents that need to be kept securely. Axis Solutions designed, supplied and installed a racking solution to meet the particular demands of this growing business, installing the racking in phases to meet the needs of the growing business.
Racking solutions that make a difference
Our brief was to make the very best use of the available space, providing a racking solution that would be safe, workable and easy to retrieve any box at any moment.
The specific challenge was to provide racking as tall as possible, with aisles as narrow as possible. We designed a system with up to 10 levels of 9000mm racking and 1200mm aisles. Every bay was designed around the particular box size and weight using a smart middle beam design.
By applying creative and practical design solutions Axis and RSS worked together to create a storage system with an exceptionally high capacity, helping to add to the efficiency of the company.
Following the most recent phase of work the warehouse now has the capacity to store in excess of 210,000 archive boxes. Allan Hartley from The Box Vault commented “At the start of the process we were looking to work with a company that gave us the maximum number of boxes per sq ft. Axis achieved this by some considerable margin by using every space possible whilst maintaining operational efficiency. We are delighted with what has been achieved so far and will now start on the designs for our new facility in early 2017.”
Racking solutions that evolve long term
Following the design phases the racking was installed in 9 phases over a 7 year period, to meet the client’s growing requirements. As with many installation projects we planned the installation to minimise the disruption to the customer’s continuing business.
Racking solutions can be designed for any storage challenge
Our expertise is not just in installing high quality racking solutions and storage systems that are safe, affordable and effective, but also working closely with customers to create the best business solution. We are aware that space is often tight. It needs to be used effectively and well to deliver value. We take time to understand our clients’ business requirements and design industrial racking solutions to meet their needs.
