When considering a storage system with lateral ventilation using air-mix units, this tool will give you a good idea of the capacity of your storage facility.

In the design phase of a storage facility, it will help to optimise the internal free dimensions, taking into account the necessary free space between the boxes, walls and roof, and between the boxes themselves.

It is not advisable with this ventilation system to have the rows longer than 10 boxes and you may stack the boxes a maximum of 6 high. Advisable 4 to 5 high, otherwise you need a very good forklift truck driver.

Go and design your own storage facility.
