A Rack Supported warehouse is where the racking is used to support the walls and roof. As the cost of land, materials and labour continue to rise, the concept of Rack Supported Building becomes a more economical warehousing solution to high bay storage of above 20m. Schaefer can supply as a turnkey project with cranes conveyors and material flow and IT systems.

Rack Supported Building

Huge savings in construction

The uniqueness of this construction lies in the fact that it does not require conventional structural columns to support the walls and roof. They are fixed directly on to the racking structure to complete the building. Not only are there no interference with building columns, but also huge savings realized in construction time and cost. This form of construction requires extremely accurate engineering tolerances. SSI SCHAEFER, the world’s largest Rack Supported Building manufacturer, is an acknowledged market leader in this field.
