Heavy materials such as concrete mix are often stored at the bottom level of racks due to their weight. Over time, these items commonly get pushed further and further back by other loads. As a result, they can be difficult to retrieve. That poses a real problem. Not only is it inefficient, but there is a risk that workers could be injured when they have to struggle to retrieve those items.
The Load Drawer system from Redirack solves this issue by making it possible for workers to move loads into the aisle, where they are easy to pick.
Load Drawer details and features
The Load Drawer system offers many benefits. For example, the system is self-contained, and there is no need for aisle racks or tracks. Each corner of the drawer is supported with dual-wheels. The wheels are on a flexible axle system that ensures contact with the floor at all times — even on rough terrain. This design guarantees safety when moving loads.
To operate the system, workers simply pull the drawer into the aisle, lock the drawer into position, and retrieve the load safely. The drawer also locks safely into position when stored underneath the rack. The lock is operated by twisting the drawer handle.
Redirack load drawers are designed to fit standard sized pallets, so they are easy to install in all standard racking.
