Built over two or more levels, Hi280 Multi-Tier Shelving provides optimum use of warehouse space by using the full height of the building for storage. Available to be constructed as the continuous frame or continuous floor method of build, multi-tier shelving is a much more economical option than building a separate mezzanine floor. A strong and robust construct, it is a long-lasting storage solution.
Dexion Hi280 multi-tier shelving is a system that is built with two or more storeys with an interposed mezzanine floor or walkways that rests on the shelving itself. The uprights used in the construction are designed to have heavy duty capabilities as the lower shelving acts as the support for the floor above. Made of pre-galvanised steel, the uprights can be full length (continuous frame) or single (continuous floor), depending on whether they take the weight of both levels of shelves and the access walkway or support the lower shelves and the mezzanine with free standing shelving units above.
As no pillars are required to support the interposed mezzanine floor or walkway (the Hi280 shelving does this), this provides more storage on the ground floor than standard shelving with a structural mezzanine above. In continuous floor installations a second tiered floor can also sometimes be installed as the thin steel grid floor allows for it, unlike thicker mezzanine floors which would prohibit it.
Multi-tier shelving can also be constructed in the continuous frame method of build, with the shelving being installed as full height frames. A supporting floor is then installed between each row of shelving. This method can result in reduced cost as it requires less floor decking, and less time in manufacturing of the bays of shelving. More flexibility is available in floor heights, as these can be adjusted in 25mm increments.
Due to lower construction costs in terms of manpower and time, Hi280 multi-tier shelving can often be a more economical choice than standard shelving across two floors with a separate mezzanine floor as the entire multi-tier system is built as one. Providing more storage space with less cost, the Hi280 multi-tier system can help to maximise warehouse or facility space more economically.
As a result of the heavy-duty components used in its construction the installation is also long lasting, giving maximum return on investment. In order to achieve optimal utilisation of the system and of the warehouse, low-use items are generally stored on higher levels and high-use items on lower levels. A multi-tier system allows you to use the complete volume of your warehouse for storage and handling and for this reason is generally associated with maximising warehouse potential.
Economical, strong and durable, the Hi280 multi-tier shelving system can help you to realise the full potential of your facility in terms of storage and efficiency.
As the overall loads concerned can be substantial, the installation of an Hi280 multi-tier system demands careful planning and consideration. In order to ensure the highest standard of safety, every design must be individually calculated. Stabilised bracing is used due to the required high load capabilities of the system (although this can depend on the height of the system).
