Clad Rack Warehouses

Clad Rack Warehouses can be made up of any type of storage system as their main feature is for the racking to form part of the building structure.


In this system, the racking not only supports the load of the stored goods, but also the load of the building envelope, as well as external forces such as wind or snow.

This is the reason why clad warehouses represent the concept of optimum use of a warehouse: in the construction process, first the racking is assembled, and then the building envelope is built around this structure until the warehouse is complete.


Most clad rack buildings are equipped with automated systems and robotic equipment for the handling of goods, especially of if they are multitier.

In addition, AR Racking complies with the EN-1090 CE marking standard, mandatory for all manufacturers of clad rack industrial steelwork structures installed in the European Community, as established in Regulation 305/2011 of the European Parliament.

Clad Rack Warehouses

The racking in this type of warehouse not only supports the load of the stored goods but also the load of the external enclosures, as well as external forces such as wind and snow. Most of them are automated systems that use robotic equipment for load handling.

For all these reasons, the clad-rack warehouse is the most suitable solution for high bay storage, also avoiding civil works.

Clad-rack warehouses manage to provide a high load density, which means significant savings due to the lower investment.

The system adapts perfectly to warehouses that require cold storage or freezing chambers.

Types of Clad Rack Warehouses:
  • Single Deep
  • Double Deep
  • Multi-Shuttle
Minimum civil engineering works
Dimensions are conditioned by the area’s seismicity and weather conditions
Automated storage over 12 meters high
Main advantages and features of the Clad Rack Warehouses are:
  • Storage at heights.
  • Optimum use of space.
  • Maximum endurance capacity.
Components and accessories

Clad-rack warehouses have different design options depending on the needs, these would be some of its components that accompany the structure of the industrial racking:

Façade and roof

The façade and the upper deck form the outer face of each clad-rack warehouse. Both are seamlessly integrated with the interior metal structure to ensure the highest quality standards combined with a high degree of design freedom.

AR Racking has the ability to realise complex designs that integrate the racking and the external facade.

Refrigeration and freezing systems

A very common option is the installation of self-supporting warehouses at low temperatures, for which AR galvanised racks have the ideal anti-corrosion resistance for this type of environmental conditions.

For the design of these structures, we rely on the knowledge of our technicians who design the warehouse to favour optimum cold and freezing currents.
