Choosing The Appropriate Industrial Shelving For Your Business

by John Wilson Supplier

The effectiveness of a warehouse, distribution center or other business that needs to store stuff, including restaurants and retailers, is only as good as the industrial shelving systems being used.

Industrial shelving is the heavy duty shelving. If used right, these storing units can save you thousands of dollars in storage costs. It can turn a modest sized warehouse or storage environment into an efficient and effective storage system. It is important to get the right kind of shelving for the job.

Below mentioned is a brief regarding different types of industrial shelving and how it can be used to increase the overall storage capacity of your business:-

Rivet Shelving - It is one of the most reliable, durable and easily deployed industrial shelving types. Also known as bolt less shelving. It uses a series of interlocking rivets and gravity to provide a platform for materials. The rivets are attached to the shelf and slide into pre-fabricated slots on the shelving frame. All that would be required is a few taps of a rubber mallet and they lock into place. The rest is done by the gravity.

Wire Shelving - It is a type of metal shelving that consists of wire mesh supported by a metal frame. Due to it’s construction, this storage system is relatively light weight when compared to others.  Being resistant to rust and mold due to it’s small surface area, it is commonly used in places that require clean environments, such as food storage. The wire decking used in this type of shelving makes it tough to store small items which may fall through the wire gaps. Thus, it is best suited for larger items or items contained in boxes.

Bin Systems - This is a great way to optimize your storage area for small business. It can be used as an accessory to wire shelving. These systems also come as self-contained units. They are great for storing parts, nail, screws or other tools. These needs to be readily accessed and separated by the size or utility.

Archive Shelving- It is an appropriate storage system for creating an archive accessed by multiple individuals at any one time. The system is available in a wide range of dimensions. Thus, it can be tailored to virtually any space. These may be used for the storage of files, archive boxes, documents and several other small objects.

Pallet Racking Systems - If your business or warehouse uses pallets or other large items, you may want to look into pallet rack systems. These units are large, heavy duty industrial shelving systems designed in both length and height to store fork lift pallets. Also, the items that come on them. It allows for the easy and rapid storage of pallet merchandise in a way that enhances the storage potential.

Mobile Shelving - It features nearly all of the designs mentioned above with the exception of pallet racks. These units feature omni-directional wheel housings that helps in the easy movement and reconfiguration of you storage space.
