Mobile racking systems are a little different to most commercial racking solutions, as instead of being secured to the warehouse floor, the racks are mounted to electronically-powered mobile bases. These bases – often referred to as ‘bogies’ – run on special hot-rolled cast steel rails, which are securely attached to the concrete slab.
Each bogie is fitted with four direct-drive, low torque, high inertia motors that work to ensure an even and uniform drive. The bogies also feature structural protection devices to absorb any accidental impacts from forklifts. These protection devices also ensure the bogies protect the base and power cables, while also keeping the wheel units aligned correctly and moving in the same direction.
Safety Features of our Mobile Racking Systems
Our mobile racking systems are equipped with numerous light sensors, which ensure the mobile racks can only be operated when the aisles are completely clear of materials, handling equipment, people, and stock.
Other integral safety features include:
Trip bars, which when activated cut the power to the motors and bring the mobile rack to a controlled halt within a short distance
Emergency stop buttons are fitted to the front of each mobile racking system, with circuit breakers that protect the electrical circuits of each rack
Our Mobile Rack Inclusions
Each mobile racking system purchased from Colby will include:
Stronger ColbyRACK beams and uprights
Special end frames
Flexible back ties, allowing the racking to sway slightly when moving
The design of mobile storage racks is different to that of conventional static pallet racking, however, when it comes to controlling light seismic conditions, there are some similarities.
