    27/11/2017

    Even though conveyors are generally associated with highly automated installations, in reality, they are more and more common in standard warehouses. The reason is they boost warehouse productivity by optimizing the flow of goods, reduce loading, unloading and transport times, as well as ensure a constant stream of products.

  • Seismic calculations for racks in Europe

    Seismic calculations for racks in Europe

    02/11/2017

    The highest seismic hazard values and the likelihood of earthquakes occurring converge typically in regions close to the edges of Earth's tectonic plates. In Europe, the countries with the greatest seismic risk are Italy, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and Iceland. At the same time, in each country, there are areas at higher risk than others. Prevention, as well as the compliance with European standards regarding the design and construction of storage systems, is fundamental for the earthquake-proofing of racks.
