The Benefits of Using Longspan Shelving as a Storage System
Long-span shelving is a type of shelving system that uses a continuous beam as the main support structures rather than individual studs every few feet. This means long-span shelving can go around corners, close to walls and other objects, and have longer spans between supports. All units can be joined to a row and no attachment to the walls or ceiling.
While typically used for large and or bulky items that may not fit into traditional shelves, the warehouse racking system is typically used in industrial applications where a lot of transportation occurs or large items need to be stored.
Shelves on this type of system are supported by step beams, which can be adjusted based on the weight being carried by the metal panel shelf.
Why long-span storage is a better alternative to bulk storage?
The main advantage of long-span shelving over traditional shelves is its ability to hold heavier loads without breaking down or losing its strength over time, just as many traditional types of shelves do when they become worn out or damaged by wear and tear from exposure to moisture-causing chemicals.
Longspan shelving has quite a several advantages over other types of storage units:
Longspan shelving allows for easy accessibility because you can move around at any time without having to worry about damaging any products stored on the shelves. This is especially beneficial if you have employees who are required to access certain products daily but who might not always be able to find their way around easily due to poor lighting conditions or poor visibility within the warehouse space.
Increased storage space
It helps to increase the amount of storage space you have in a warehouse or another area. The shelving system allows you to use the entire wall space for storage. You can stack boxes and other items on top of each other, which will allow for more space for future items.
This makes long-span shelving a great solution for warehouse owners who want to improve their efficiency and save money by not having to purchase additional storage units.
Easy assembly and flexibility
The assembling process of the Longspan shelving system is somewhat easy. It consists of uprights, beams and metal panel shelves. You can set up the uprights with bracing as frame and slot in the pair of beams in between both sides of 2 frames to the position of level you want and place metal panel shelves onto the pair of beams. You may do the same for each level.
Another benefit is organisation. Longspan shelving allows you to organise products in an orderly fashion, so you know where everything is at all times. This helps prevent accidents from happening when someone accidentally knocks over a shelf full of heavy items.
A warehouse racking system is made using high-quality materials and will last for years without needing any repairs or replacements. There is no need to replace long-span shelves as often as other types of storage systems might require to continue working properly over time.
