In the storage area of the high-quality designer floor coverings, a META MULTIBLOC mobile racking system with seven trolleys and electric motor drive is installed as the centrepiece of the buffer store. The META MULTIPAL S pallet racking system is used to store up to a total of 1,400 pallets. Thanks to this dynamic storage variant, it is possible to increase the storage capacity by up to 110% on the same area compared to a permanently installed racking system. This means maximum space utilisation with simultaneous access to every storage location. The desired aisle can also be opened e.g. from a forklift by remote control.
Another special feature of this system are the special beams at the end of the carriages, so that the escape route required by JAB can still be used without restriction. For the storage of the fast-moving warehouse goods, stationary pallet racks of the META MULTIPAL S system are installed in addition to the picking stations. With both storage variants, continuous grating floors are used in the pallet racks so that pallets weighing up to one ton can also be stored outside the standard size. This end-to-end special solution enables flexible storage and problem-free pick-up of special pallets. The ram protection on each row of racks prevents damage from transport equipment and ensures the longevity of the racks.
Another important area at JAB is the storage and packaging of a wide variety of materials. JAB always has 3,000 different articles in a total of 20,000 colours in stock in Bielefeld and offers cutting and a comprehensive sewing service. For the storage and provision of these high-quality fabrics, so-called cleat racks are used, in which the fabric rolls can be clearly stored. These are several META CLIP shelving units placed one behind the other. Due to the flexible application and conversion possibilities of this plug-in system, the shelving can be optimally adapted to almost any type of goods in question and, if required, the storage capacity can be increased quickly and without great effort.
