Barpro Storage was approached by J-P Knipe regarding a Holding Freezer for his business, Kalahari Cuts, located in Mooiplaats in Pretoria East.

Project description

Barpro Storage in collaboration with Universal Storage Systems (racking installers) provided a Rails and Mobile Ready Racking System which enabled 368 pallet positions with a storage capacity of 441.6 Ton.


The project was executed in 2 parts by the laying of the rails. With the installation of rails Barpro ensure that there is high density polyurethane under the rails. Precool, a manufacturer of insulated panels and cold rooms provided insulation on the floor. Once the rails were in and the floor had been poured, post pour floor levels were taken to ensure that the floor is level with the rail.

Polyurethane is a plastic material, which exists in various forms. It can be tailored to be either rigid or flexible and is the material of choice for a broad range of end-user applications such as: insulation of refrigerators and freezers.

Mobile Ready Racking System

Barpro and Universal proposed the Mobile & Static Racking system to Kalahari Cuts to allow for future expansion within the facility as the need arises.

With this solution Kalahari Cuts can double their storage capacity with the installation of mobile bases using the existing racking structure. This is a single storage solution for Kalahari Cuts as the need for storage capacity increases.

Barpro technicians wear Delf freezer protective wear that allows them to install the bases at operational temperatures.

This product is designed to minimise the risk of & provide protection against extreme cold and any risk related activity. Barpro is a proud supplier of the Delf Freezer wear range.
