Storage solution for distribution centre in Somerset

Posted 30 January 2014
Written by

We were contracted by the National Aquatic Wholesaler to design, supply and install a complete storage solution for their new 35000 sq. ft. purpose built distribution centre in Somerset.

At the planning stage we listened to the requirements they had and then produced custom project plans including CAD drawings to show them how it would work in their premises.
We installed the following;
Mezzanine Floor
A 707.5m2 storage mezzanine floor – overall size of the mezzanine floor was 35.930mtrs x 22.727mtrs, complete with an all steel construction double flight staircase 1mtr wide with 4.5mm thick chequer plate treads and tube & ball construction hand & knee rail. We also installed an ‘up & over’ pallet gate to enable 1200mm wide pallet access complete with chequer floor protection plate.
*A special requirement was that the mezzanine decking had a grey anti slip surface for protection.
The mezzanine floor was fire rated to comply with building regulations, this involved installing a suspended ceiling system to the underside of the mezzanine floor complete with mineral wall fire barrier and uprights clad in a ‘Snap-On’ encasement system.
Longspan Shelving
Under the mezzanine floor was going to be their picking area, so we installed 148 bays of longspan shelving, each bay was 2.5mtrs high x 600mm deep with three 25mm chipboard shelf levels. We decided on two different length bays of 1,500mm and 2,400mm so that they could store all their stock and make sure no space was wasted.
Pallet Racking
The warehouse was where all their bulky stock items would be stored, so we installed 28 bays of pallet racking, each bay was 6.5mtrs high x 900mm deep x 2,700mm wide with three levels of beams. Each beam level would be fitted with 32mm slatted timber decks to achieve a loading of 2250kg per level. We also installed 400mm high floor fixed column guards to the front face of all uprights to reduce the risk of fork truck damage.


This project was completed on time, on budget and with 100% customer satisfaction!
“I have used Peter Evans Storage Systems over the years for various projects with Mezzanine Floors, Racking & Shelving and they have always done a rock solid job.
Our new distribution centre is the best of everything to produce efficiency and a good working environment for the staff and with that brief Peter Evans have designed and built the majority of the storage systems within the warehouse on time and within budget.
They should be an obvious choice for any business! ”
– Paul, Managing Director
