BEKO Bil, Sweden
Bekö bil is the leading car retailer of Gothenburg, Sweden for many strong brand names such as SAAB, Chevrolet, Opel and Subaru.
Due to new regulations all cars have to have a double set of tires one for summer and one set for winter season. This “forced” Bekö bil to invest in a new top modern workshop for tire services.
In a newly constructed, separate building, connected to their workshop Bekö has build their service tire-workshop. However the space was limited and a compact solution seemed to be the only alternative in order optimize the warehouse capacity.
Constructor Group is already a partner of Bekö for storage solutions and was consequently contacted by the company. Due to the limited space and huge storage demand the solution became a compact storage rack based on shelving system Hi280 supplied with tire-long-span beams built on 7, 10 m long manual controlled mobiles.
- The room area is 120 m² and the lay-out allows for 7 mobiles 10 m long plus one fixed tire rack unit towards the wall.
- The total capacity of the tire rack installation holds between 3,780 - 4,800 tires (depending on tire size) on 7 levels and covering a total of just 120 m² floor space.
- This gives approximately 40 tires /m² a very effective storage utilization.
