Timber construction and carpentry storage Storage systems designed and built by experts

Consultation meeting

To us, timber storage is a science. It needs to be handled and stored correctly, to avoid damage caused by excess moisture or poor ventilation.

Our fully bespoke storage systems for joinery and carpentry workshops are designed to help you increase your working efficiency and optimising your storage space - while making sure your timber is given the room it needs to breathe. At the design stage, we take into account how important it is to store your most valuable woodworking materials close to hand and according to type and size.


We can design a storage system that:

  • Gives you easy access to your materials
  • Ensures timber is stored correctly, to avoid warping or sagging
  • Provides space-saving storage of different material sizes
  • Has a modular design for flexibility
  • Cuts down your workflow time
  • Is top quality and built to last

Cantilever racks

Our carpentry customers know that cantilever racking saves them time and money. As well as ensuring you can instantly find what you're looking for, cantilever racking lets you store your goods and materials in a clean, safe and organised fashion by model, colour or dimension.

Our hot-rolled steel profiles (instead of thin sheet metal) allow for high load capacities, and thanks to its slim structure, cantilever racking gives you the option to have various storage levels and achieves maximum storage space with very little surface area.

Vertical racking

When you need easy access storage, sometimes only a vertical racking system will do. For example, with chipboard racking, wood and chipboard can be removed from storage and placed directly into the cutting area. Our robust plug-in system means racks can be subdivided by separating brackets, or optional separating arms for fast and direct access. Handling is achieved manually using smooth roller conveyors.

Mezzanine floors

Our space-saving, multi-level platforms can give your workshop endless storage possibilities. The self-supporting construction fits into any existing building and can be customised individually according to the available space.

  • Robust combination of rack systems and mezzanine floor
  • Additional second and third levels possible: 350kg/m² standard capacity load on the walkway between racks
  • Various platform surfaces available, depending on your requirements
  • Broad range of accessories (lighting, ladders and stairs) available

Timber construction and carpentry case studies

Schmidt carpentry


In a new OHRA rack clad building constructed from cantilever racks, customers of the building materials retailer BAUKING at the Lorup site can now find all timber goods centrally in one place. Compared to the previous storage solution, the racking system also offers significantly more capacity, allowing BAUKING to stock a larger number of different items. One challenge in the project planning was slopes of 0.7 percent in two directions for drainage of the outdoor storage area. To compensate for the slope, OHRA utilised a special roof construction: The roof arms of the racks are not connected to each other, but a "gap" of 10 centimetres remains between them. It is concealed by a flexibly attached ridge cap. This not only keeps the interior dry, but also prevents tensions and vibrations from being transmitted between the runs of racking.

OHRA has constructed a cantilever storage system for the Thuringian carpentry workshop Torsten Schmidt, which not only offers more space for panels and timber, but also supports a photovoltaic system on the roof.
