Pallet racking Racking systems for heavy loads and safe handling

Request for proposal  Consultation meeting

Pallet racking system

Tailor made pallet racking

Our pallet racking systems are the most popular storage systems across a comprehensive range of industries and sectors - such as haulage and transport companies, the building material trade, dispatching warehouses or as a single storage system for heavy goods.

OHRA pallet racking – many applications

Made in Germany, our racks are quick and easy to assemble and can be optionally extended at any time. We use hot-rolled high-quality steel sections for high load capacities and safe handling. Our hot-dip galvanised pallet racks are ideal for outdoor storage, and for light and medium loads our cold-rolled P5 pallet racking system uses optimised steel sheets with IPG profile beams. All our pallet racking systems can be supplied either with or without roof.

OHRA pallet racking advantages

  • Customised to your warehouse configuration
  • Easy and fast assembly
  • Superior safety tolerances
  • Accessories for individual racking configurations
  • Outdoor systems (including galvanised roof and/or walls) available.
  • 25-year rust-through warranty for hot-dipped galvanised finish
  • Also suitable for accomodating other storage aids such as pallet cages or heavy tools

Heavy duty P3 pallet racking

Our P3 pallet racking system is ideal for heavy and bulky loads such as raw materials, semi-finished products and other pallet-stored products, and heights can be adjusted to suit any available space.

Cold-rolled steel pallet racks are prone to kinks or bending, compromising their load-bearing capacity. So we use hot-rolled steel for our frames and beams to ensure superior stability even under heavy loads. Our pallet racks can withstand bay loads of more than 31,500kgs and beam loads of more than 6,000kg. Beam levels have a 100mm pitch and can be moved without using tools. Indoor and outdoor (with roof and walls) options available.

OHRA hot-rolled steel pallet racking advantages

  • Individually configured pallet racking
  • Handles bay loads up to 32,500kg
  • Handles beam loads up to 6,000kg
  • Easy to assemble and extend
  • Outdoor systems (including hot-dip galvanised roof and/or walls) available

Medium and light duty P5 pallet racking

Our P5 range of pallet racks is the most cost-effective option for beam loads of less than 3,000kg. Our rack uprights use optimised steel sheets and matching beams that give you flexibility at a reasonable price, without compromising on safety requirements.

High-quality racking for lighter loads

Our standard rack structures are screw-fixed, but we can provide welded rack structures on request. Beams are made of IPG sections and connected to uprights by hanging brackets. Our racks have a 50mm pitch, and beams can be adjusted without using tools. Uprights are supplied galvanised, and beams are painted in RAL 7035 (light grey).

OHRA P5 pallet racking advantages

  • Low cost pallet storage solution
  • Handles bay loads up to 18,000kg
  • Handles beam loads up to 3,000kg
  • Quick assembly, easy to extend
  • High-quality powder coating surface finish

Roofed pallet racking

Roofed pallet racks are the ideal solution for weather-resistant goods that can be stored outdoors. Our roofed pallet racks are popular with garden centres, builders merchants and businesses where finished concrete parts, bagged goods on pallets or timber elements are stored in outdoor areas.

We offer multiple roof options - including trapezoidal sheets or light panels - as well as different wall designs that protect your goods from all weather conditions.

OHRA roofed pallet racking advantages

  • Low cost and highly durable
  • Available in hot-dip galvanised or powder-coated finishes
  • High bearing loads considering the weather effects
  • Uses the entire outdoor area, saving valuable inside space
  • Different roof designs available

Dynamic racking systems

Our movable pallet racks are ideal for pallet goods that require compact storage with a low footprint. We install the pallet racks on torsion-resistant trolleys, and the complete rack is moved as a single unit. The system can be operated electronically or manually and can be switched to 'night position' outside of operating hours - preventing theft and ensuring aisles cannot be accessed by forklift.

OHRA mobile pallet racking advantages

  • Highly compact trolley racking system stores large loads with a small footprint
  • Movable racks ensure quiet movement and are pushed together without gaps.
  • Rack block 'night position' protects valuable goods from theft
  • Can be installed in new or existing spaces

Pallet rack mezzanine floors

Thanks to the strength of our hot-rolled steel sections, we can design and construct a mezzanine substructure of pallet rack storage levels that ensures every inch of available warehouse space is used. We connect individual runs of pallet racking with steel sections covered with flooring (metal sheets or chipboard panels) that creates a structural supporting area between the racks.

Mezzanine floor pallet racking advantages

  • Maximises available space and explores the full height of your buildingspace utilisation by exploiting the entire height of the building
  • Closer proximity of storage and order-picking zones
  • Cuts transit time due to full integration of the storage area

Drive-in racks

Our drive-in racks give you the best of both worlds by increasing the height of block storage and making the most of any compact storage space. They are perfect for storing large quantities of products as well as pressure-sensitive goods that cannot be stacked. Storage is performed according to the last-in-first-out (LIFO principle).

OHRA drive-in rack advantages

  • The ideal space-saving storage solution as it compacts necessary warehouse space
  • Shuttle units installed have extreme load-bearing capacities and sliding properties
  • Can deliver cost savings from the compact storage of pallets
  • Make it easy to store sensitive goods

KWS

KWS

As part of the expansion of production capacities for the processing of sugar beet seed at the Einbeck site, the seed specialist KWS SAAT SE & Co. KGaA commissioned the company OHRA to build a storage area in which the seed is stored under climate-controlled conditions. The pallet rack supplied by the Kerpen-based storage technology specialists offers space for approx.100 special seed containers. The plant also includes a steel construction platform on which the seeds are filled into the storage boxes automatically via a tipping device. The platform and racking are enclosed and form a covered unit so that the containers weighing up to 600 kilograms can be transported directly from the tipping station to the storage location in the racking using a stacker crane.
