High-bay warehouse

(abbr. HBW; High bay warehouse, high-bay storage facility is a storage type with the following characteristics:

  • Rack height from about twelve meters
  • Rail-bound storage and retrieval machines
  • Silo construction
  • Mostly automatic operation

With the HBW, large construction heights are achieved, so that many pallets can be accommodated in a small area. Thus a high surface intensity is achieved as a value for the number of pallets per square meter.
