For warehousing goods, pallets are commonly used. There are two main pallet types – the Euro pallet and the Fin pallet. Containers, barrels, reels and coils can also be loaded on a pallet rack. Frames and beams are the main constructive elements of wide aisle racking. The frame construction is reusable and consists of two uprights, connected with each other with braces, with plates (bases). All constructive elements are bolted. The frame is anchored to the floor. Each pallet is placed on a pair of beams which stick to the frames with brackets. IMVO manufactured a range of profiles and braces, which secure 12 m tall racks with capability to extend up to 30 m with 30 t per section load capacity. Load capacity per one cell can reach up to 5 tons. The double deep racking by IMVO provides additional warehousing area by reducing the amount of aisles between racks.
