Macrack Australia Ltd Our nationwide phone line 1800 048 821 Store your cable drums with ease and confidence. Make sure you use a genuine MACRACK Cable rack to allow easy retrieval of cable, no matter what size or weight of drum. Cable racking is a system used primarily for storing cable, still on its drum or spindle. Primarily it is used for electrical cable, chain, rope and other coiled product. These drums / spindles have a steel rod placed through the centre, allowing the drum to be stored horizontally as well as allowing it to unravel when pulled on. This allows bulk storage of spindles in the racking system, increasing storage capacity whilst still being able to access product, increasing efficiency. The drum racking system that we use is extremely versatile. We have standard sizes, however we can offer different height configurations, different weight loadings, depths and amount of levels per bay. It’s because we use the MACACK pallet racking system in our Drum racks that ensures the strength as well as the versatility. The importance of versatility is greatly underestimated with racking, as stock changes over time and every company must be flexible to adjust. Our standard range is based on a 3962mm pre galvanised frame that is 840mm deep. This is joined together with 5 cross arms that are 1000mm long, giving great stability and preventing torsion. This system is dyna bolted to the ground to prevent movement of the racking system. The drums are placed on either of a solid bar (for very heavy product), or 40Nb pipe for majority of the drums. The Cable Racking storage system is designed around using a fork lift (with appropriate attachments) to lift up the drums, because these drums are often far too heavy for staff to lift. However because of this we have designed two options for securing the pipe into the racking system. First is a ‘J’ Brackets which allows the drums to be stored at the front of the racking system, this is often used for lighter duty drums 10-600Kg. The other option is the ‘G’ brackets which sit in the centre of the frame, these are very robust in design and can take up to 2800kg per drum. To ensure smooth rotation of the Cable Drums in the racking system, we have designed a separator that holds the drum off the ‘J’ brackets and the ‘G’ brackets. This is a great solution for cable racking as the drum tends to pull to one side and then the other as it is unwound. This system is a Brisbane made rack, and is available Australian wide. Not only that, we carry a lifetime guarantee on our racking because we know how durable our systems are. With fully pre galvanised frames, this storage solution is exactly what you are searching for if you need to store cable drums. We will also work with you to explore other options that you may need throughout your warehouse. We offer a wide range of products and a vast amount of experience. Talk to us today and we will help you achieve your storage goals.
