If you’re operating a small parts storage or picking area within your warehouse, it’s essential to keep them organised and secure to ensure you’re maintaining the highest standards of productivity and efficiency.
Small items might seem easier to store away than the larger, heavier products in your warehouse, but they are more likely to be misplaced and overlooked because of their size, resulting in disorderly areas.
Messy storage of small products can be hazardous to your employees, for example, if someone slips over on something that wasn’t put away properly, this can result in low morale and costly payouts. It also puts your business at risk of wasting time and money if your employees need to continuously search for missing items!
If you’re guilty of neglecting small items inside your warehouse, check out our 5 best storage solutions below:
1. Storage Cabinets
Storage cabinets are a great addition to any warehouse to safely store and lock away small parts, especially for items that don’t need to be accessed frequently.
You can organise your cabinets with different compartments using Bins and Trays which help keep items with different SKUs separate from each other.
2. Visible Storage Cabinets
Visible Storage Cabinets are extremely versatile as they can be hung on a wall, positioned on a worktop or mounted on space saving turntables.
The small drawers are designed to stow away all sorts of small items and come with adhesive labels, so you can easily find what you’re looking for without having to search through every drawer. Plus, they’re transparent!
3. Hanger Rack Systems
A Hanger Rack System is an integrated and highly efficient racking system which consists of square hole hanger boards, mobile and static kits and a range of accessories, including bins, metal hooks and shelves.
They are the perfect solution for organising a busy workshop or production area, which often use a lot of different equipment that needs to be safely stowed away such as screw drivers.
4. Louvred Panels
Louvred Panels are an economical alternative to shelving, cupboards or drawer storage.
They can be attached to any flat, vertical surface including walls, shelving ends, free standing racks or trolleys.
Once in place, small parts Storpak Bins are attached to the panels.
Louvred Panels are an efficient way of saving space and come in various combinations to suit the individual layout of your warehouse.
