Custom Cradle Racking to Create additional Floor Space

Purdy Company supports several nationwide distribution and industrial companies.  A cable and wire distribution customer, with a location in Blacklick, OH reached out to Purdy Company for help in maximizing their warehouse floor space and storage.  An influx of large cable reels tied up valuable floor space and they needed a solution to get the reels off the ground and utilize the vertical space in their distribution facility.  After conducting a site visit, Purdy Company partnered with MECO (Modern Equipment Company) to engineer a custom pallet rack solution.

To accommodate the reels and more efficiently use the warehouse floor space Purdy Company used structural pallet rack. Custom cradles and 104’’ structural C-channel beams allowed forklifts enough room to move and store the material.  A total of (12) bays of structural racking were installed by Purdy’s installation services team. This allows the customer to accommodate up to 100 cable reels.  Further, the client’s ceiling height exceeded 20′. This allowed the use of 42’’deep x 16’ high uprights, creating the much-needed warehouse floor space.  The solution provided by Purdy Company is now being implemented across the customer’s nationwide footprint.  The next custom pallet rack project will be installed by our crews in Kansas City, MO.
