Alex & Alexa, UK - Constructor Group Small Part Handling Reference
The UK Dexion Distributor - Hampshire Mezzanine Floors - conducted a complete survey of Alex & Alexa's existing distribution centre, resulting in a new storage configuration utilising Hi280 Galvanised Shelving.
Alex & Alexa are an internet fulfilment company who specialise in the supply of high quality children's toys, clothing & accessories.
Alex & Alexa required their distribution centre to be refurbished to increase the capacity of the building & the number of pick face lines, all of which was required for the growth of their business.
The refurbishemnt included the relocation of some product lines and the addition of new garment hanging rails enabling the safe storage of hanging clothing as an integral part of the storage equipment design.
The new distribution centre had an increase in pick locations by over 100%, however the filling efficiency of the stock was enhanced by the new layout, a higher density arrangement than previously configured and reduced travel distances & picking times.
HMF specified Hi280 adjustable shelving. 3m high with mesh backs & sides.
The mesh ensured products were safely stored & reduced the risk of any items falling out of the captive locations whilst still allowing good air flow & heat movement within the warehouse.
The mesh also allowed natural daylight to permeate throughout the storeroom.
HMF supplied over 1.5 miles of Hi280 adjustable shelving with a loading of 85Kg per shelf level & a maximum bay load of 680Kg.
The installation took 2 weeks & was completed on programme.
