System Consultation & Installation at The Surplus
The design and implementation of pallet
rack systems and shelving units has become increasingly
complex in recent years. This is due in large part
to the advent of sophisticated material handling equipment.
To make better use of space, enhance product flow,
and comply with customers’ quality demands,
today’s racking and shelving manufacturers are
producing a wide range of styles. Choosing the wrong
one or not addressing pertinent layout and facility
issues can ruin a warehouse operation.
At The Surplus Warehouse, we can help.
As the largest used and new material handling dealer
in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PA), we are staffed
with project managers that have more than 20 years
of experience in the material handling industry. Over
the years, we have supervised and worked through multiple
scenarios and problems. If an issue arises, we have
the expertise to address the problem immediately and
keep the project moving forward to ensure a timely
and reliable installation.
Consulting with a Surplus Warehouse
With any new space there are issues
to consider that may not be evident to a business
owner or manager. Our design experts handle everything
from surveying the space for ceiling height, sprinklers,
heaters, pipes, and building columns to determining
the type of lift equipment that will be used in the
facility, which can have major ramifications on pallet
rack layout. All of these elements significantly affect
the configuration of the racking or shelving systems;
yet our experts know exactly what to look for.
We can design aisle spaces that are
compatible with whatever equipment will be used, as
well as entire systems that are compatible with all
local requirements and building codes, which typically
vary by state, county, and even city or municipality.
We can look at the overall flow of the warehouse and
help layout a new material handling system to maximize
efficiency. Since certain areas have seismic requirements,
we can analyze the seismic activity of your particular
zone and provide engineered drawings upon request,
and ultimately advise you on the best way to proceed.
by a Coordinated Crew
After the initial consultation process,
we develop and execute a plan for the installation.
With timing of the project taken into account, we
utilize all resources to get the job done by deadline.
We coordinate everything from utilizing rental equipment
required for safe completion of the installation,
to optimizing material delivery times, given that
too much or too little material can cause delays.
From start to finish, we manage the actual installation
process and interface with other trades on site as
