Drums (or spindles) are used to hold the coiled item and a steel rod is inserted through the drum centre. The steel rods are generally hollow pipe with a range of nominal bore sizes depending on the drum. In circumstances where the drum weight (800 Kgs and more) is excessive then a solid pipe, or bar, is used.
Cable racking is often installed in Brisbane and Queensland warehouses. The team at PRQ is regularly involved in the installation, maintenance and repair of cable racking for organisations such as Energex that utilise a lot of cable.
Our cable racks are customisable to your specific needs. Depending on the size of the drum, its weight, your loading equipment and the height of the warehouse, the PRQ team can easily design a solution to meet your needs. A popular height is a 4267mm high bay with between 3 and 6 deep supports for holding the drums, and between 4 and 7 horizontal beams holding the frames together. Bottom welded beams are used at the base to maximise space to the floor.
In summary, cable racking is a very flexible option to store drums of coiled products. The rack provides immediate access to product, is easily adjusted to suit the changing needs of your business, and utilises the incredibly strong roll-formed steel materials used in your other pallet racking.
