Clad Rack Structures 

Summary

A clad rack structure is a warehouse where the structural framework supporting the walls and roof is provided by the racking.

Technical Information

Clad rack warehouses can be up to 45m high and the point loads from the feet of the racking can be extremely high. 

In addition to accounting for the usual storage racking loads the design must consider the building superstructure loads (roof ,wall cladding, snow, wind, seismic). 

These buildings generally use automated MHE to transport products, which enables racking to be built much higher creating more storage space. 

Clad rack design is a specialist field and advice of a rack supplier should be sought.
