Symphony Group

Grimesthorpe

Symphony is the UK's largest privately-owned manufacturer of fitted kitchen, fitted bedroom and fitted bathroom furniture with a turnover exceeding £180 million and over 1300 employees.

A major cantilever racking installation providing 4500 linear meters of storage has been completed by PRO-DEK for the Symphony Group. The cantilever racking has been installed in a new production facility in South Yorkshire, built to enable the company to meet continuing demand for rigid kitchen furniture from private house-builders, the social housing sector and retail customers.

Racking columns are 10,500mm high and have nine / ten arm levels per side, depending on their position within the factory. Column spacings have been designed to accommodate work-tops either three or four meters long, and arms are generally 1325mm long in order to store a variety of board depths. Protective rubber pads between all arm levels complete with radius profiled ends have been included to minimise damage to boards during handling by forks.

A heavy-duty rack mounted guide rail system optimises operation of a multi-directional side loader and reduces the risk of damage while minimising the aisle width, which has been maintained at 2800mm throughout the installation.
