Recently we completed a job for a local catering business in Dandenong.
The business stores large amounts of frozen stock (primarily finger food) and supplies both businesses and the general public with goods for functions, parties and events.
A few years ago they approached the team at Cosmic Storage, wanting to deck out some cool rooms and freezers in selective pallet racking.
Warehouse racking is very versatile in that it can be used in a large array of environments, including very warm and very cold storage areas.
Below are some recent images of the freezers decked out with selective rack and stocked full!

As the years have gone on, the business has expanded and their storage needs have increased. It is quite obvious from the images above that it was time to increase storage and maxmise the floor space in their cool room and freezer areas. The owner came to us requesting warehouse racking that would suit large pallets holding boxes of frozen stock. We were happy to oblige and after taking measurements of available floor space and making recommendations based on the businesses needs, the owner opted for a combination of both selective and drive in racking.
Our team of installation experts are in the process of putting the finishing touches on the racking now, but you can take a look at the (almost!) finished product below:

Why choose selective racking?
Selective racking, also known as adjustable pallet racking, is one of the most requested and economical types of pallet racking. This type of rack can be designed to meet almost any pallet size or weight. Another advantage is that this type of racking doesn't take up a huge amount of floor space - as you can see here, minimal floor space is used and precious air space is being utilised instead.
With the added bonuses of good stock rotation and order picking, you can't go wrong with selective rack.
Why choose drive-in racking?
Drive in racking operates on a First In Last Out (FILO) basis and is designed to store large amounts of the same product. In this case, the owner has decided to use his drive in racking for pallets of frozen chips, as this is one of his best selling products. With an effective Warehouse Management System, the warehouse team will be able to pick products based on the earliest expiry date.
