Task

Due to the company’s successful marketing and strong growth in the Florida construction industry a new manufacturing facility featuring efficient material flow and storage solutions is being constructed. META assisted CGI Windows & Doors in the design and implementation of storage solutions for this new 330,000-square-feet facility in Hialeah, featuring META QUICK Boltless Shelving system, META MULTISTRONG Cantilever Racks, and META MULTIPAL Pallet Racks. META products offer optimum storage space for CGI Windows & Doors on about 50,877 square feet of area.


META QUICK Boltless shelving offers quick and easy installation which saves both time and cost. With an area of over 2,906 square feet, the system features 1344 shelves for efficient storage and organization of smaller window components. The shelf height is adjustable in steps of 1”. This system has been designed in a way that additional tiers can be added to address CGI’s future growth.


The META MULTISTRONG Cantilever racking system offers horizontal storage for aluminum extrusions and other raw materials required for the manufacturing of windows. The system features 20’ tall racks with a footprint of around 35,137 square feet. The name itself suggests that these racks can effectively carry heavy loads without any difficulties. Each bay in the system has a cross-bracing to ensure stability of the tall racks. This system consists of both single sided and double sided cantilever racks for optimum usage of the dedicated storage area.


The facility also features a META MULTIPAL Pallet Racking system and a META MULTIPAL A-frame Racking system equipped with dividing arms for easy storage of heavy duty windows. These racks allow for either lengthwise or crosswise storage of products on about 12,834 square feet of area. The closed box sections of the racks ensure stability to withstand high loads. The beams can be adjusted in vertical increments of 2” depending on the consumer needs. META products are very easy to install and highly flexible so that customers can quickly adjust to growing and changing market demands.
