Los Angeles, California—Stanley Black & Decker has installed Hannibal Industries, Inc’s patented TubeRack system its new one million square-foot facility in Fontana, California.
Stanley Black & Decker, a provider of tools and storage, commercial electronic security and engineered fastening systems, is experiencing heavy growth and needed a racking system that was flexible and both seismically and load-bearing strong for its new warehouse and distribution centre which is double the size of its former facility in Rialto, Calif.
“Because of the weight differences among its many hand and power tool products, we designed a racking system that can efficiently and safely accommodate all pallet loads – heavy or light – and can withstand any possible seismic movement,” said Brent Baltin, owner of Baltin Rack, one of Hannibal’s regional distributors.
“Our experience with the Hannibal’s patented TubeRack system has shown that it is the only racking solution that will work in the high seismic areas, such as those found in Southern California,” Baltin added.
The massive Stanley Black & Decker installation involves 1,900 pallet bays. Each bay has six 60-inch high-load levels for a total pallet position count of 14 positions per bay. The design load per level is 5,000 pounds with a 30,000-pound capacity per bay.
