Apex Steel – Steel Coil Storage

Macrack and Apex Steel have a great relationship, using each other’s services on a daily basis. We buy steel from them and they in turn use our racking. Most predominately Apex uses Coil racking to store their steel. It’s a safe and very effective way to store coiled product in a warehouse getting maximum storage capacity in a minimal area.

The Apex group is an all Australian privately owned and innovative national organisation that continues to grow at an unprecedented rate.  The growth is due to The Apex Group continuously expanding their product range and by providing stand out levels of service.

The Apex Group represents the union between some of Australia’s major steel companies; together we equal a bigger and better team that is able to offer a greater and wider variety of products and services. 

Steel Coil Racking

Considering the vast variety of coil shapes and sizes, we had to design and engineer a versatile storage system with the ability to accommodate the vast range. Using our coil cradles we created a system which allowed 3 coils wide per bay. These could accommodate a range of weights and diameters, meaning product could be stored based off a coding system and not restricted on dimensions.

Let’s talk about weight loads! Coil that is stored in this fashion can weigh A LOT! Because we custom manufacture, we are able to ramp up the weight loads of our coil racks. This is especially critical when you are storing many levels above each other, imposing a lot of weight into the frame.

Steel Coil Storage

If you are storing steel coil, metal coil, industrial drums or other cylindrical items, its best to talk to Macrack and have the experts work with you to create and manufacture a system that works with you and your stock.  Call or e-mail to find out more. We are happy to help.

We also offer floor mounted coil cradles, to prevent the coil from rolling around on the ground. These are also extremely robust and take a great deal of weight, which is exactly what you would expect ground level storage to be. To prevent the cradles from moving we dyna-bolt them to the ground, preventing a fork truck from nudging it and causing damage the rest of the racking system.

Steel Sheet Storage

The other main storage systems that Apex uses is a Selective pallet racking system for storing sheet steel and plate. Utalising a standard pallet racking system, with longer beams and deeper frames, we store flat steel on fork entry bars. This is a system that allows the forklift to still pick up the materials whilst maximising floor space. Without using this system the only alternative is to store packs on the ground which is very space consuming.

Long Product Storage

The configurations are endless. So we design the racks to suit the product. For instance if they have a 3000mm x 2400mm sheet we can make a beam 3353mm wide and a double frame configuration 2400mm deep. Simple! The same goes for longer product, even up to 4000mm wide is an ease to store. Depending on your  product depth we can recommend a frame depth to suit, 600mm, 840mm, 1200mm, 1500mm are our standard sizes. If you need to go deeper we will simply supply you with a 2 frame deep system.
