When install a storage racking system, you need to consider the available height of the plant, different locations has different available height, and these available height determine the racking height. In order to increase the storage capacity of the warehouse rackings, most of them are designed as top-level structural, usually, the top layer have a fixed space to the warehouse ceiling. In addition, it is necessary to consider bearing strength and the flatness of the ground. Lastly, you should clear the factory's fire prevention measures installation location, because these installations need to occupy a certain space, when design the racking structure, you need to avoid these spaces.

Therefore, customers can carry out specific designs according to their existing stacker models.

The specific size of the goods that need to be stored in the warehouse are also one of the factors affecting the design of the racking structure. Because you need to select the right loading capacity rackings according to the corresponding weight of the goods. And the goods quantity effects the racking storage capacity.
