There are many individual elements that comprise the greater spectrum of so-called ‘aggregate’ materials, all of which play a vital role in contemporary construction. Commonly used elements include gravel, sand, and slag, among others.
Within the industrial sector, items can be forged from a number of different materials. Each company will have a good explanation for favouring one material over the other, just as each client will have their own reason for having a material preference, as well.
Safety is, or at least should be the highest priority for any industrial facility, but more especially if it’s a chemical manufacturing plant. The hazardous materials that are managed by staff on a daily basis, combined with the company’s eagerness to meet ambitious performance goals, can have disastrous ramifications for the safety of workers if proper safety measures aren’t in place and adhered to.
Where workplace safety is concerned, there are particular industries where additional steps must be taken to help protect the wellbeing of personnel from hazardous situations. Employees of companies that specialise in construction, mining, and chemicals, for example, are at much greater risk of suffering serious or even fatal injuries through falls or contact with harmful substances.
Work platforms and mobile access ramps allow personnel to complete their duties safely and effectively in even the most difficult circumstances. The loading and unloading of cargo on large commercial vehicles and train carriages, for example, creates a dangerous set of risks
There are a whole range of different work platforms available on the market today, including Mobile Elevated Work Platforms, scaffolding, or prefabricated platforms that are intended to be installed on a permanent basis. The style of the platform you require will come down to the nature of the work that needs to be completed
Enabling workers to safely get on and get off a large, commercial truck or similar vehicle is essential to preventing unnecessary injuries. While everyone would be quick to acknowledge the importance of implementing such equipment, very few would understand the components that are required to make truck access platforms safe and dependable.
If ever you’ve asked a materials testing specialist this same question, you’ll know that their response has only succeeded in creating even more confusion. The reason for this is that concrete is a very complex subject and there loads of different factors and conditions that must be taken into account.
There are an extensive set of building industry terms concerning materials testing and the various equipment used. To assist those who are unfamiliar with them, here’s a list of the most common ones.
Operating a business involves a whole range of complex challenges. To run a smooth warehouse operation, there are several major areas that you must address. Failure to do so, will inevitably lead to costly and potentially catastrophic consequences down the line.
A continuation of part 1, which introduced you to Double Deep, Narrow Aisle and Drive In Pallet Racking systems, part 2 focuses on Selective, Push Back and Cantilever racking. The guide will once again explain each type of pallet racking system and identify its greatest advantages.
Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking is the perfect solution for companies who wish to make the most out of their warehouse storage space. The space-saving principle behind the system is fairly simple; increase your storage density by reducing the amount of floor and cubic space occupied by the service aisles.
A highly efficient form of pallet rack storage, push back racking systems allow palletised goods to be stored up to several rows deep. With this system, pallets are fed onto trolleys and held in place by steel guide rails, which are placed on a slight incline, facing towards the front of the aisle.
There are a number of key benefits for businesses in utilising Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) over traditional storage systems. As an advanced computer controlled system, they are relatively easy to use and maintain, offer high-calibre order picking precision
As the name suggests, Double Deep Pallet Racking enables palletised items to be stored two rows deep and provides superior storage density to alternative systems such as wide aisle. These storage systems are either installed against a wall or back-to-back.
Drive-In Pallet Racking is a high volume storage system that maximises floor space by eliminating the need for aisles, in favour of specialised guide rails in which products are stored. It’s commonly used in warehouses, distribution centres and cold storage facilities
