Galvanised Clad Rack High-Bay Warehouse

Renova, a European consumer products brand in the tissue paper products segment, has automated its intralogistics operations with the opening of a new clad rack high-bay warehouse in Torres Novas, Portugal, where its head office is based too. The manufacture, design, calculation and installation of the structure was the responsibility of the storage solutions specialist AR Racking, who also carried out the project management.

“The internationalisation of our activity and presence of the Renova brand in foreign markets requires us to streamline and improve the competitiveness of our operations: faster and more precise to achieve more volume,” said Luis Saramago, Marketing Director at Renova. “We knew that AR Racking’s experience in projects of this scale would offer us the service, quality and deadline completion guarantee, hence our decision to work with them”, he added.

The clad-rack structure, whose particularity is that the racking supports the entire building, is completely galvanised and, therefore, extremely resistant to corrosion and extreme environmental conditions. The warehouse occupies an area of 6,532 m² and is 34 m above floor level. The racking has a storage capacity for 27,360 europallets, which will be loaded and unloaded by double-deep stacker cranes.

AR Racking brings high-quality standards in its industrial racking and structures, which are the result of its continuous engineering development activity and knowledge of the raw materials with which it works. In this case, the structure has been designed with earthquake-resistant calculation, for greater warehouse and customer safety.

Regarding the solution installed for Renova, “automation and exploitation of space in height will give Renova a far more agile operating flow, with more capacity for more products and greater control of references”, explained Bernardo Sopeña, International Key Account Manager at AR Racking. Clad rack warehouses provide high load density resulting in significant savings due to lower investment.

AR Racking is part of Grupo Arania, an industrial group of companies with extensive experience and scope, and with a multi-sectoral activity based on the transformation of steel that dates back more than 80 years. AR Racking provides the market with a wide range of solutions with high certified quality standards and a comprehensive project management service.
