Global trade in goods with sometimes long transport routes and the expectation of reliable availability of goods by manufacturers and consumers are forcing business operators to develop well thought-out logistics concepts. In this environment, economically designed warehouse facilities are an essential component of business success. Intelligent use of space is required, for example through fully automated high-bay concepts. Sheet steel, galvanized or painted, is an indispensable construction material for system components in racking and warehouse construction.
What products does Wuppermann offer for warehouse technology?
Galvanized slit strip made of structural or micro-alloyed steel from Wuppermann can be optimally processed into the desired system component for racking and storage systems. These standardized, high-quality steel grades are essential for meeting the high requirements for static load-bearing capacity of modern structures, such as high-bay warehouses, pallet racks or shelving systems. Racking and storage systems for various goods are mostly erected in halls. Since they are located in such locations in an atmospherically moderately stressed environment, i.e. not exposed to weathering, the steel strip already receives sufficient corrosion protection for its entire service life from a thin zinc coating of Z140 or Z275. At the same time, resources and costs are conserved through the economical use of zinc.
As a special feature, Wuppermann also offers hot-dip galvanized steel strip with a rounded longitudinal edge.The rounded edge minimizes the risk of injury and thus also contributes to occupational safety, both in further processing and in the subsequent use of the material.
