GlideRack – A true cube utilization option for a high selectivity operation.
Here are some common questions that GlideRack can answer…
Do my aisles really need to be that big?
How do I utilize my freezer? How do I utilize my cooler?
I have a thousand SKU’s or items how can I store them without losing selectivity?
Is there a way to secure my warehouse products without buying a fence?
How can I lower my freezer bill?
Do we really have to expand again?
How much is the price per sqft?
GlideRack is Mobile RackingMobile racking is designed to move.
Yes, your warehouse racking can move. This system is designed to give slower moving items the opportunity for high capacity storage.
Prior to GlideRack high selectivity meant that these type of items were stored in single selective racking with an aisle for every two bays.
Now with GlideRack you are allowed 1 aisle per every 4-20 rows of single selective racking.
In a 100,000sqft facility in single selective racking you can store 10,438 pallets with 5 levels.
In a 100,000sqft facility with GlideRack you can store 20,749 pallets with 5 levels (nearly twice the capacity).
You will be able to store 10,438 pallets with 5 levels in 43,489 sqft.
Due to the increased capacity the payback on a GlideRack system is relatively quick.
When creating your GlideRack Payback timeline here are a few areas that you will save…
Cold Storage costs – Electricity usage will decrease
Fewer forklifts because travel time will be decreased possibly cut in half
Fewer forklift operators
Reduced forklift maintenance due to reduced usage and fewer lift trucks
Leased square footage – You can lease half of what you had in the past to accomplish the same goal
Retrofit your old racks, with the GlideRack solution you will not half to purchase new uprights and beams (in many cases)
Electricity – The only lights that will be used are the ones above the open aisle which means that 90% of the lights will be off thus saving electricity
A few prime applications for GlideRack are cold storage, archive and manufacturing.
