Permobil contacted Kendal Kalamaha at SJF last fall with a request to design a high-density storage system for their palletized power wheelchairs. These pallets were unique in that they were a european pallet size, and a bit lighter than is typical for American pallet loads. This meant that for a dynamic flow system, the braking would have to be custom tailored to the application.
SJF worked with 3D Storage Systems of Canada and was able to custom design a 13 deep x 4 high x 7 wide rack system that incorporated roller brakes. In addition to the design, SJF also provided the equipment and installation on this project. In Permobil’s words from a year after the project was begun, “Everything is working very well with [our new rack system].”
