Industrial Shelves – A Key Component in Warehouse Planning and Design

One of the most important decisions a business has to make is the design of warehouse storage that will best utilize space. Choosing the best industrial shelves, and other materials, is important as the right choice means you will not only have sturdy shelving, but ones that will last a lifetime. This will also expedite movement of freight and promote workplace safety.

Often the success of a business depends on an even flow of products. Having a good storage program will make this possible. A space saving program will not only provide more goods available but also make it easy to move these goods to the area where they are needed.

The purpose of industrial shelves is to maximize space, get things off the floor and make objects easier to store, see, locate and move. Industrial shelves come in a variety of options with industrial grade steel and rivet shelving especially popular.

Industrial grade steel shelves are the best choice for warehousing. Not only are they designed using the highest commercial grade steel but many are designed to hold up to 35,000 pounds of weight.

These shelves can be connected together using self-locking connector clips, which makes it possible to extend shelving, as needed. Not to be overlooked, is the fact that open warehouse doors often expose these shelves to the weather. When the shelves are baked in enamel this exposure will not damage the shelves.

Contacting a company with experts in the business means that it is possible to have a specialist survey the area, take measurements and recommend the materials which will work best to enable the development of all available space. The storage area available can be large, small or medium. This makes it important to choose the right materials to utilize the space.

A popular item for a well-run warehouse is pick modules. These modules provide the ultimate in flow efficiency. As a flow rack, pick mods, as they are often called, make it possible to easily move, and distribute, goods from one area to another. This provides an easy way to control the storage in a large facility and an excellent way to consolidate costs in moving products from one area to another.

Things to be considered, when designing a warehouse storage unit, are the space, the products, movement of products, moving equipment and the employees handling the materials. All of these factors are primary in building a storage unit that will effectively fulfill the purpose of the best possible use of storage area available. This begins with an assessment of the area that is to hold backup goods that are easily available.

Availability of goods for rapid turn-over is the basis for business success. When proper storage is available, it is a simple matter to replenish a store’s sales goods or a manufacturer’s needed parts for construction. This makes it apparent that using an expert in planning is essential.
