The Brief

Last year we were contacted by Besmoke Limited to install a pallet racking system at their Arundel location in West Sussex. Whilst the project had some challenges and difficulties, after a short on-site discussion and deliberation, the final design was completed in a swift time frame.

Who Is Besmoke Limited?

Besmoke Limited occupies an AA Grade BRC Accredited factory where they use custom-built chambers to create their smoked products. Their 12-ton facility occupies a total space of 10,000 square feet; creating the need for reliable storage solutions to support their continually operating smoking plant.

The Solution

In December last year (2018) we installed a pallet racking system with drive-thru bays and upright protection. At Besmoke Limited's new storage facility in West Sussex.

Our first challenge was an issue regarding aisle space. We needed to achieve a high density of storage for pallets, whilst also offering as much aisle space for fork lift trucks as possible. In order to combat this challenge and provide for the needs of our client, we combined Drive-Thru bays with standard wide aisle pallet racking. This resulted in a system that makes the best use out of the roof line.

In total 120 pallets were accommodated within this system, whilst maintaining 100% pallet access. However, in order to reduce the risk of damage, rack aisle protection was also installed as well as upright protectors to every aisle facing upright.

So How Long Did This Project Take To Complete?

This instillation itself was completed within just three days; however the initial lead time was two weeks.
