Our shelves of perforated metal planks as components of a racking system carry out multiple task simultaneously. For this reason, e.g. we only need two components for one cantilever rack, namely uprights and shelves. With conventional types, you have a total of 3 components with stands, crossbars and coverings.
Bridging big support distances
Tremendous optimisation possibilities leading to saving potentials arise particularly with cantilever racks. Support distances can be easily bridged depending on the load capacity, in specific cases of up to 1.80 m, if necessary, also longer with our perforated metal planks.
Considerable production lengths
Through targeted investments in the newest generation of roll formers, we are now able to manufacture perforated metal planks with a length of up to 10 m.
Extremely fast mounting
The large shelf discs of e.g. 1.2 m x 7 m are secured to the stands only at the 4 corners with interlocking laser edge parts against lifting. This results in lower mounting costs and savings on fastening materials.
Through the great length of the shelving over 3 or 4 spans, it is almost impossible for the stored goods to get stuck or lifted up and levered out due to adhesion forces or traction.
The most varied designs
Perforated metal planks can be manufactured in steel, stainless steel or aluminium.. Varied designs result from the numerous options with respect to the surface treatment and structure.
Light and water permeable
Significantly higher light and water permeability in contrast to particle board as shelving. A open cross section of up to 50% can be achieved by the various surface structures.
The shelves made of steel profiles have four statically convincing advantages:
1. Absorption of heavy vertical load capacities. Here, almost all common shelf loads and distributed load capacities are possible!
2. Using as additional multi-span support (3 or 4-span support) more static advantages from 10 - 17% result. A static disc (e.g. 1.2 m x 7 m) results from the fastening of the perforated metal planks.
3. A shear rigidity results through form and traction which makes the otherwise needed horizontal connections unnecessary with the correct connection to the cantilevers.
4. The material thickness (1.0 mm - 2.0 mm) can be statically adjusted exactly to the load capacity with the appropriate quantity following the motto "Lower weight - lower price"
