The DK Group operates from a number of locations in the United Kingdom and Europe. Operations at Rugby and Coventry provide easy access to the M1 and M6 motorways. Redirack were chosen to manufacture and install a new storage system at the Coventry facility.
“We went with Redirack because their’s was a competitively priced system that would give us the storage space and product accessibility that our business needs. We are very pleased with the racking.”
Darren McKay, Coventry Operations Director explains: “We went for a wide aisle storage system, with the ability to store three pallets per bay at each beam level. In total we added over 2500 pallet positions.”
The pallet racking was installed in an ‘L’ shaped area in two phases. Nine double runs of racking nearly 45 metres long with traversing tunnels provide the bulk of the storage space. The majority of the racking is wooden decked to cater for the wide variety of pallets, totes and containers that the company handles.
The racking rises to 6.3 metres, with the top beam being at just over 5.5 metres. Regular counter balance trucks work the system and our sacrificial leg is used throughout on vulnerable uprights. Aisle end barriers complete the system.
Darren was very happy with the end result: “We went with Redirack because their’s was a competitively priced system that would give us the storage space and product accessibility that our business needs. We are very pleased with the racking.”
