Storage boost for Viscount

Redirack fitted a racking and mezzanine storage system for Viscount Catering, the Sheffield-based factory of Enodis UK Food Service. In total, 4,000 pallet spaces were created at the site, which has a 25,000 sq ft warehouse and a 75,000 sq ft manufacturing area.

The system was designed to follow the contours of the building’s roof to maximise storage density. A narrow aisle racking system was installed, along with wire decking, to cater for the variety of load sizes and config-urations. Sacrificial legs and rack-end barriers finish off the scheme and provide added protection and cheap maintenance, to reduce downtime in the event of rack damage. The mezzanine floor is fire-protected and is used for storing spare parts.
