Cantilever racking system with roof

Outdoor warehouse racking

Our external racking systems don't just create additional storage space, they also offer outstanding protection against the elements such as snow, wind and rain. For example, using cantilever roofing and pallet racks ensures that wood and timber can be kept dry and aerated. We supply trapezoidal sheeting material for roofing, and we can also fit materials you supply.

Roofed cantilever racking

In outdoor areas, roofed cantilever racking is the preferred choice for long goods that do not need to be stored inside. We will design the storage system taking into account additional loads caused by wind and snow in your region and then calculate the rack sections and roof accordingly - keeping you fully informed at every step.

Functional storage for outdoor areas

Our outdoor cantilever racking uses either high-quality hot-dip galvanised steel or powder-coated materials, depending on the outdoor location. We can provide drainage and back wall/side wall designs made of metal sheets or wood boards, weather protection nets or roller shutter systems. Roofing inclines can be individually adjusted according to the drainage system and forklift truck requirements. Whatever your outdoor space, we can deliver the ideal storage solution.

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.

Show success story

Abies

Abies

Abies Polska now stores KVH and BSH timber in OHRA cantilever racks instead of on the floor. Eight 26-metre-long racks with integrated roofs form an independent building. With the new racking system Abies Polska was able to increase the storage capacity by 20 percent using the same floor space. The storage and retrieval processes are on average 30 per cent faster. In addition, damage to the stored goods has been reduced by 70 percent.

Schmidt carpentry

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.

Van Dorp Hout

Van Dorp Hout

A total of over 240 metres of cantilever racking from OHRA installed by Van Dorp Hout, one of the leading specialists in garden timber in the Randstad region of the Netherlands, in 2019 and 2020. Partly in versions with a roof and in different heights, the timber trading company was thus able to increase its storage capacities by 40 percent compared to the previous floor storage and significantly increase the overall efficiency in the storage processes. This means that customers can now be supplied more quickly, at shorter notice and with a wider range of articles.

Gaigher + Penn

Gaigher + Penn

Gaigher + Penn, a specialist dealer in building materials for roofs and façades, has replaced the previously used, partly welded sheet metal racks with five 18-metre-long cantilever racks from OHRA. Made of hot-rolled, solid walled steel profiles, the racks offer both more load-bearing capacity and an increase in storage capacity, as well as significantly more safety for the employees. In addition, the integrated roof construction protects the goods from the weather. This means that the company can now flexibly stock an even larger range of products for its customers in the same space.
