The construction of a new production line and the associated intermediate storage of semi-finished products is always a major challenge. This was the case at the well-known company DENIOS, where an intermediate storage facility was planned and installed for a new space system production line for the storage of hazardous materials. The production process here needed to be designed efficiently, so a flexible solution for the maximum utilization of space was sought to store the semi-finished products. After intensive planning and discussion, DENIOS decided on the META MULTISTRONG Heavy cantilever racking system, owing to its design and flexible, usable storage space.

DENIOS AG is the world leader in the production and trading of products and services for corporate environmental protection and workplace safety. Business customers from industry and services, crafts and trade, as well as public institutions such as education and research, value the products, solutions and individual services offered for dealing with hazardous materials.
META and DENIOS already have a long history of successful and loyal collaboration in a wide range of fields. Consequently, META was also the first point of contact in the search for a new intermediate storage solution for semi-finished products and the construction of space systems for the storage of hazardous materials.
Intensive planning by Dominik Kammertöns, the person responsible for production logistics at DENIOS as well as META internal and external sales, led to the production of a four-line cantilever rack system based on the META MULTISTRONG Heavy, in both single and double-sided versions. With a height of 5.60 metres and a length of over 15 metres, the different levels provide a storage space of almost 500 metres. The extensive installed grating creates a highly flexible storage option for all kinds of racks or pallets with a high maximum possible load of 600 kg per cantilever. In addition, the META MULTISTRONG Heavy cantilever racking systems with the bolted and adjustable cantilevers are versatile and infinitely adjustable to meet any future requirements.
"This flexible storage option with its high load capacity was a decisive factor in choosing this rack solution," explains Dominik Kammertöns of DENIOS.
"The flexibility and speed when loading and unloading the semi-finished products has a very positive impact on our new production chain in the field of hazardous material containers."
