XL Byg, Denmark
In order to secure a more effective service for both professional workmen and do-it-yourself people, XL Byg constantly seeks to facilitate the purchase and resulting pickup of timber articles.
An 80 meter long compact rack exploits the space and manpower of the timber yardin the best possible way.
The installation consists of galvanized P90 Silverline racks equipped with rollers. The timber is stored/picked by means of a jigger. Before and after pick/storage the rollers are locked. The installation has 5 levels, the upper level is a multi tier installation with 3 pallet gates. Each bay is 130 cm wide with a capacity of 4 tons (lower), the other levels have a capacity of 3 tons. The system has a depth of between 5 and 6 meters. With the old A racks it took 1½ to 2 hours to place a timber package, now it takes 10 to 15 minutes with truck and jigger.
