Choosing storage systems for your warehouse is a considerable task, especially with so many different systems available. The key is to use systems that can help you maximise space and storage capacity. Maximising your storage space and capacity has multiple benefits for your business which include:
- Increasing stock organisation
- Reducing long-term costs
- Avoiding missed sales
- Increasing employee productivity & satisfaction
- Improving safety
When deciding on the best system for your business needs, you will need to consider the available space, underused or negative space and the specific product requirements such as cool or dry storage, short term or long term storage needs.
To help you determine what systems you might need, take a look at our guide below:
Every warehouse needs pallet racking for keeping stock orderly. Pallet racking allows for the storage of palletised materials in horizontal rows with multiple levels. There are multiple varieties of racking for both indoor and outdoor use including Selective Pallet Racking, Cantilever Racking and Galvanised Racking.
Selective pallet racking is amid the most popular as it is a durable and cost effective system that offers direct access to all pallets. It provides high capacity storage, is easily installed and can be adjusted. Adjustable pallet racking is particularly useful when planning for future expansion or rearranging areas to improve efficiencies.
Mezzanine Floors are ideal for optimising storage space as you can double or even triple the capacity of your warehouse by building upwards. They range from a simple storage platform to heavy duty structural flooring. Mezzanine floors are especially convenient as they are free standing and do not require additional infrastructure for support.
Cool Room & Dry Storage
If you’re storing perishable goods in your warehouse, you need to use the correct shelving to help maintain their “shelf life.” Angle Post Shelving is a sturdy, adjustable shelving system that can be used in cool rooms, kitchens, dry store areas as well as general storage. The wire shelves allow for increased air circulation – essential for keeping food evenly dry and cool.
Hanger Rack Systems
Hanger rack systems are great for keeping smaller to medium items organised and for quick picking. They are available in both static and mobile units and are often used in back of house retail stockrooms. You can improve operational systems in busy environments with multiple products by simply matching Matching the racks with colour coordinated storage boxes.
Mobile Storage Solutions
Mobile Storage Units are an economical choice for warehouses as they are extremely compact which helps save on floor space. They are available in standard configurations but can also be customised to suit specific requirements. The shelving is fitted to base trolleys with aluminium wheel carriers for reduced weight and increased rigidity. They are also extremely safe as every unit is connected by an overhead stabiliser to hold them in place.
