Frequently Asked Questions
Why does Efficiency matter in warehouse functioning?
The transformation of warehouses from being generations’ old static storage to high-velocity operations has been very significant.
Companies changed the way they used to operate and moved towards adopting new technological advancements and methods in their warehouse activities to achieve optimal operational efficiency. The transformation helps the business to be more productive and efficient and to survive in an extremely competitive warehousing environment.
Why do I need a warehouse designer? Why is it important to design the warehouse?
The Design development for a warehouse building is subject to activities being performed within the building. It is very much necessary to understand the purpose and review requirements of each project to initiate developing a productive concept design
Any inefficiency in warehouse design can lead to lower service levels and higher operating costs.
The physical warehouse layout - internal and external layout, is only one aspect of an optimized warehouse design. It also needs to review every process in a warehouse to ensure that the warehouse operates productively and efficiently reducing its cycle time and the touchpoints across the whole operation.
The return-on-investment coupled with warehouse functional requirements demand that a warehouse is productively efficient and is near to future proof, it is highly important to get warehouses and distribution centers professionally designed.

Could you please explain the Design Process enabling me to take a quick decision?
Right Warehouse initiates the design process from inside of the warehouse and proceeds to outside the building to marshaling yard and circulation path. Various permutations and combinations are considered including future unforeseen warehousing needs and requirements in the initial design development stage itself.
Our warehouse design process is mainly based on the following parameters:
The internal and external layout of the Facility – Master Plan
The load-bearing capacity of Floor
Internal columns and Bay columns
Storage method & pattern
Process flow pattern
Warehousing / Marshalling area – Reception, storage, picking, packing, dispatch
Material-handling equipment utilization – Conveyor, forklift, stackers, hand pallets
Dock layout – Loading and Unloading
Truck court and truck apron
Frequency of Inbound & Outbound Vehicle movement
Administration and general office space, storerooms changing rooms, bathrooms, battery charging area, service area, auxiliary space, etc.
Following design requirements considered by default in the concept design development stage
Aesthetics and visual impact
Space use and flexibility of space in current and future use
Building insulation and acoustic isolation
Skylights and wall lights
Access and security
Design life and maintenance requirements

Why flooring in the warehouse is considered to be very important?
And confirm the construction of warehouse specific flooring system is included
in your end-to-end project management?
The purpose of the Warehouse floor is to carry the load of the entire operation and is the base for the racking systems and the surface on which the material handling equipment and other types of machinery run. The warehouse floors should be capable of supporting applied loads without cracking or deforming, with a minimum number of maintenance-free joints, and have tolerance suitable for material handling system to be used.
Also, the floor should be highly resistant to abrasion to be dust-free, resistant to any impacts and oil spills, smooth but non-slippery, easy to clean, and highly durable. The right type of flooring having flatness and levelness finished in line with international specification and standards, ensures proper movement, stability, and increases the productivity in the facility as well. It also creates a safe and pleasant working environment.
“Right Warehouse” understands the importance and significance of the floor in the warehousing sector. We consider all known load factors, MHE traffic, impacts, and finishing of the floor, and accordingly, choose the right materials for the construction of the floor so that it can serve most of the storage goods profiles and fulfill all requirements.
Customers are asked about the loading dock area for some time. Why it is so important?
Loading docks and Truck landing areas in front of loading docks are some of the key locations in a warehouse. It is the primary location of the movement of product, coming in and going out of a facility. Both Loading docks and truck landing area must be as efficient as the facility it serves. Designing a loading dock area that is both safe and efficient is the most crucial stage of the planning process. A poorly designed loading dock area could affect the productivity of the warehouse facility and lead to a significant loss of time.
Why insulate warehouse buildings? What are the benefits and how RWH can help?
Metal building structure, components, cladding systems, storage racks, shelves, MHEs, docks, and doors including concrete floor and products stored in the building absorb heat. This makes surface temperature inside the building much hotter than the actual air temperature creating an unpleasant working environment.
Most of the warehouse buildings are constructed using metal structures and metal cladding sheets that do not carry any insulation on it.
The benefits of insulating the warehouse:
Insulation helps to maintain a pleasant temperature, reduces unpleasant noises inside the building and creates a comfortable healthier working environment. Insulated warehouse also enhances productivity and quality of the warehousing activities.
Right warehouse can advise the best suited insulation product for your application and supply the same along with roofing and wall cladding products.
