2h Storage Solutions won this contract against stiff competition on price and specification using a mixture of Polypal and Link 51 systems all supplied direct from UK factories by the Moresecure group. With the capacity for over 1000 pallet positions in racking reacting a height just a few hundred mm below the underside of the roof. With the system extending to a height of 11,154mm working with the latest fork lift trucks featuring on mast camera systems.

We liaised with both the fire Protection Company who installed the sprinkler system and FM Global who advised of the customer’s insurance company’s specification and criteria.

The system was installed using a variety of plant FLT and specialist scissor lifts to reach heights involved in this installation. We started the project on site with a team of seven of our highly skilled storage equipment installers using specialist lifting equipment to lift the frames and components to over 11mtrs high. The racking was fitted with the latest in racking protection using a mixture of steel amco style end barriers and ballistic grade polymer upright protectors.
