Hilti – buffer storage for fire protection parts

The industrial company needed a storage system in which approximately 9,000 firestop blocks and plugs could be temporarily stored. The preliminary products come from the production area with a raised surface temperature and must be left to cool before they can be packaged and shipped.

  • Automated processes
  • Time-saving cooling of the preliminary products
  • Reliability


  • Unit dimensions precisely adapted to the available room height
  • Software controls the fully automatic and secure storage of goods and transportation of the goods to the packaging station
  • Products stay in the storage lift to cool down for a controlled period of time
  • Fast cooling times thanks to the integrated air extraction systems
  • Service contract ensures optimal maintenance of the system

Scope of delivery:

  • 1 Shuttle FSE
  • 6 fully automatic lifting stations
