The High Density Storage Revolution is Here. Booth 5331.

At the Global Cold Chain Expo in booth 5331, Storax America | Flexspace are proud to showcase its high-density, mobile, industrial storage solutions aimed at: increasing storage capacity; increasing accessibility and productivity; while decreasing the facility footprint.

For more than 50 years, Storax has been an industrial storage innovator. Its mobile racking system, Poweracks and high-density pallet shuttle, Ranger are in use in over 60 countries helping customers drive operational excellence, efficiency and increase profitability.

Poweracks, industrial mobile racking system, is comprised of a racking superstructure installed to a powered moving base. Poweracks replaces conventional static aisles with one moving access aisle.  This unique design combines direct access with a substantial increase in storage density.

The Ranger is a high-density modern storage solution that automatically circulates pallets on a shuttle system by handheld remote control or a WiFi PDA device.  Utilizing advanced photocell technology, the Ranger intelligently detects and positions itself underneath a pallet, delivering and extracting pallets with a tunnel system.

    South Carolina – May 31, 2017 - In the high throughput distribution environment of perishable produce, Ceres Fruit Growers looked to increase its storage capacity while maintaining full product accessibility and improving air circulation.  The mobile racking solution, Poweracks by Storax, has helped Ceres Fruit Growers increase storage capacity; decrease operating costs; and improve product shelf life.

    “For over twenty years, we have been utilizing Poweracks in our produce distribution facilities - which has allowed us to increase our practical storage capacity by 75%-80% and decrease our energy costs due to improved air circulation,” said Deon Schickerling, Electrical & Refrigeration Manager at Ceres Fruit Growers.  “We have numerous aisles moving simultaneous which provides not only full accessibility to each pallet location, but the speed we need in our high turn environment.”

    “Increasing storage capacity within cold storage environments is not only relevant but necessary,” said Todd Jessup, principal of FLEXSPACE, the North American distributor of Storax solutions. “Energy costs are a major contributor to cold storage facilities’ overall operating expenditures.  By eliminating and replacing static access aisles with moveable aisles, facilities can increase their storage capacity by 100% within the same building footprint.  The level of efficiency and productivity also increases with unobstructed access to every product storage location while decreasing the number of forklift touches.”

     Perishable cold storage environments balance maximizing storage capacity with temperature and humidity control.  When air circulation is optimized, product is able maintain its shelf life and in the case of Ceres Fruit Growers, set-point temperature was raised - saving energy and operating costs.

  • Storax Poweracks
    Storax Poweracks - mobile storage racking system- maximizes space utilization through use of a moving aisle.

  • Storax Powerracks: increasing storage capacity while decreasing energy costs

    Poweracks, the efficient, innovative, high-density mobile storage system. The Poweracks system is helping warehouse managers maximize efficient space utilization through a moving aisle, which provides direct access to every pallet location and greatly reduces the number of access aisles required.  Used in cold storage, general warehousing, distribution centers and manufacturing sites, Poweracks is engineered to meet every customer’s throughput requirements, load details, and every day business demands.

    Demonstrated key outcomes of Poweracks include:

    • Up to 100% increase in pallet storage
    • Energy costs divided over, up to 100% more pallets
    • 20-50% decrease in facility footprint
    • 20-40% construction cost savings
    • 20-40% savings on cost per pallet
    • 50-100% increase in revenue potential
    • Unobstructed product access – no double handling
    • Increased air circulation and product access
  • Storax Ranger

  • Storax Ranger System: pallet shuttle system independently marshals pallets into place

    The Ranger is an automated Pallet shuttle which stores and retrieves pallets on a FILO / FIFO basis.

    Pallets are stored in racking ‘tunnels’ and are handled by the Ranger within the racking structure. This removes the need for Fork trucks to enter the racking (as is the case with drive in); eliminating in-rack damage and speeding up the storage / retrieval process.

    Up to 6 Rangers can be operated by a RF remote control, or an unlimited number via Wi-Fi with a hand held or cab mounted PDA. Storax can also offer our BWMS (Basic Warehouse management system) which has been developed to be used specifically with the Ranger system.
