Due to the different stock goods, the Arnsberg-based storage technology expert META used different system solutions for the respective areas. For (small) parts storage in the order picking area, the META CLIP boltless shelving system with a total of almost 1,200 shelves was installed, ensuring clear and flexible storage of a wide variety of products at all times. The open arrangement of the aisles and the corresponding positioning of the fast-moving items ensure short walking distances and thus more efficient order picking.
Special cleat racks were installed on the side. These special shelving racks based on the META CLIP system are ideal for horizontal storage of long goods. At Elektro Schröder, articles such as sensitive LED tubes and plastic cable ducts find their perfect place there.
The two-storey design of the shelf floor system and the installed pallet sluice also allows larger goods such as control cabinets for construction sites and other pallet goods to be stored in the open space on the second level. The room resources were used intelligently, as the second level is also directly connected to the administration wing with a transition.
The service counter in front, based on the META CLIP shelving system, forms a spatial conclusion and an optimum opportunity for the delivery of the required articles.
In the rear part of the new central warehouse, the META MULTIPAL system is also used for storing heavy items and various pallet goods. For upright storage and quick access to plastic pipes and metal cable trays, one side of the shelf is equipped with special separation arms.
A special version of the META MULTIPAL system was installed to store the heavy cable drums as an important element of the overall storage solution. On the levels of this cable drum rack, the drums hang on special cable drum axes in the rack, so that a precisely fitting order picking of the different cable types is possible. Up to 25 cable drums can be stored at Elektro Schröder ready for order picking at the same time. Further cable drums then find their place in the adjacent pallet rack. In close coordination between Elektro Schröder, the electrical wholesaler Sonepar and META-Regalbau, a tailor-made storage solution was created in Gütersloh.
