When it comes to racking options, the market is flooded. That’s why it’s so important to find the right storage solution for the items your workplace deals with, or is likely to encounter. At B&R Storage Systems, we find that when it comes to items that require vertical storage, there’s no system better for the job than A-Frame racking. In this blog, we discuss the benefits of this racking style and which industries should utilise it.
How does A-Frame racking work?
This type of racking is named for its resemblance to the letter ‘A’, similar to sandwich boards. A-Frame racking systems are used to store items vertically. The bottom of the product rests on the base of the rack with the length of the item leaning along the sloped frame.
When you opt for A-Frames, you’re able to customise it to suit your needs; they are available in both double and single-sided options. This means that your floor space – which often comes a premium – can be fully utilised. Our A-Frame units have specially designed protruding arms, particularly important if you stock a variety of products. It allows you to divide them into categories such as length, profiles, and colours.
What items is it best suited for?
A-Frame racking is suitable for:
- Aluminium, steel, and plastic extrusions
- PVC piping
- Timber products (beams, trim, decking, dowels)
- and most other long, vertical items
If you’re wondering whether A-Frame racking is the right choice for your workplace, speak to one of our experienced sales team members. Having worked in this industry for many years, we understand the different types of racking solutions and how they can best be implemented into warehouses and other storage spaces.
Which industries would benefit from it?
A-Frames are best used in warehouses to maximise on the available vertical space. A workplace that values every inch of storage space, A-Frames are a clever way to store long items that would take up too much space if laid horizontally. They could also be used in showrooms to display lengthy items.
