Horizontal Sheet Metal Storage Racks

sheet metal racksWe offer two different models of horizontal roll-out sheet metal storage racks. The standard roll-out sheet metal rack is a semi-enclosed storage system that features three to eight heavy-duty pull-out shelves for sheet metal storage. The shelves can be pulled out by hand or using a T-handle for ergonomic assistance; when fully extended, the shelves provide complete overhead access for loading and unloading by crane.

The forklift stacker rack is another innovative horizontal sheet metal storage system. The stacker rack features 10 to 19 removable pallet shelves with built-in fork pockets. This design makes it easy for a single operator to transport the pallets by forklift.

The horizontal forklift stacker rack also has many opportunities for customization, with customized pallet spacing and shelf quantities available as standard options. More specifications of the forklift stacker racks include:

  • Heavy-duty welded steel framework with powder coat finish
  • Custom pallet spacing, with 4″ minimum shelf clearance
  • 5,000-lb load capacity, with greater capacities available
  • Minimum height of 8′, with other standard heights of 10′, 12′, and 14′

This multipurpose unit provides both bulk pallet storage and individual metal sheet storage, and it is designed to facilitate rear loading.

Vertical Sheet Metal Storage Racks

Vertical sheet metal racks provide high-density storage with improved visibility and convenient access to stored materials. The vertical shelves pull out with attached handles, with 100% extension for crane, hoist, or vacuum access. The roll-out shelves make it easy to view stored sheet metal for selection, resulting in less wasted time and material.

As with the horizontal sheet metal storage racks, the vertical sheet metal racks have options for custom shelf quantities, dimensions, and capacities. More specifications of the vertical sheet metal storage racks include:

  • Heavy-duty welded steel framework with powder coat finish
  • Up to 2,000-lb load capacity per shelf

“The team at Southwest Solutions were nothing short of fantastic. First meeting with Craig, I received a customized design, in person, based on my office needs while still maintaining an efficient layout and being cost effective. Craig explained everything clearly, allowing me to understand that as modular mill-work, I would be able to move it if I ever changed offices, but without the added sales pressure to immediately make a decision. Once I had decided, I worked with Chris who assisted in picking out the finishes and scheduling the delivery and installation. The professionalism of Craig and Chris spoke volumes and I would highly recommend anyone looking to transform or fit-out an office to contact Southwest Solutions.”
