Structural Pillars, a Wallet Hurt in the Logistics Industry

There are various operations in the Logistics Industry: productive, storage, distribution, and others. For the same reason, the offer of Warehouses and Distribution Centers is very diverse for different needs.

For example, a Distribution Center for food storage differs from retail. And so the configurations are many; basic ones with storage on the floor without storage racks, others with many rack bodies, systems, and lines of process automation, storage tents, etc.

But these warehouses do have in common is that they all have Structural Pillars supporting their roof, and therefore protecting them is essential since a severe impact could lead to the collapse of the structure.

The great challenge is to achieve a protection system capable of adapting to the wide variety of existing shapes and sizes.

With this challenge in mind, Ennat developed a product composed of recycled rubber in combination with a binder, which provides shock-absorbing protection that can suffer lasting impacts since being flexible generates a deceleration from the effects dissipating the energy that finally reaches the pillar. (fig 1)

The great virtue of this product is that it adapts to the various and innumerable types of pillars and structures on the market (fig. 2)

In recent years there has been a trend to use tents for storage; These are for two reasons, one, it is an "economical" way to grow in productive areas enabled to store and on the other hand the need to collect products protecting them from heat and direct contact with UV rays. The problem is that these pillars are made of iron and with systems that cannot receive any type of impact, especially from cranes, as they can suffer irreparable damage. (fig. 3 Fig.4 and fig.5)

However, it is relevant to mention that the pillars must be protected because they could suffer irreparable damage caused by the cranes and products stockpiled in the warehouses; we refer to large-scale concrete or steel pillars. (fig. 6 and fig.7)

The versatility of this product and its durability (after five years, it is recommended to maintain the exterior sheets) make it a very profitable product since it generates excellent savings in operation. Still, above all, it develops very high safety standards.
