Aerosol and Explosives Cage

Aerosol Storage and Explosives Cages

We will often be asked to liaise directly with our client’s insurers to ensure that the aerosol cage or explosives cage is designed in the most cost-efficient manner. For example:

  • If in-rack storage is required, there are a number of mesh options that may be acceptable, some more economical than others.
  • The positioning of the storage cage to maximise the volume but minimise the amount of perimeter mesh used in the cage can also result in a more economical design.
  • Maximising the support that can be gained by using existing pallet racking rather than new independently supported full-height mesh walls can keep costs down.

NSI Can Supply a Turnkey Solution

We can undertake the CAD design, procurement, installation and deal with the complex regulatory issues for you.

The design of the means of escape and gates and doors is also critical. NSI’s experience in building control compliance again lends itself well to designing great aerosol and explosives cages for our customers.

For best effect, you really need to get us involved in the early days of design, and we’ll take a holistic view of your total storage facility to ensure the aerosol or explosives cage fits seamlessly with the rest of the operation.

Shuttle Racking System

For clients for whom ultra-high density pallet storage is important, a shuttle racking system can be the answer. The concept is based around the fact that the forklift never enters the racking, individual pallet movements being conducted on intelligent RF guided shuttles that operate on rails millimetres below each pallet.
