While they don’t exactly break the bank given their costs, specifying the wrong container can result in a less efficient, less ergonomic operation.

Wide Span Bulk Shelving Offers More Capacity

October 13, 2015

Wide Span Bulk Shelving

There are all kinds of shelving options for typical loads, but what do you do with the really heavy, dense, or bulky items that just won’t work on conventional shelving, but that aren’t loaded on a pallet rack? Or things that aren’t big enough to store on pallet racks, but don’t fit into standard shelving? That’s where wide span bulk shelving comes into play. It’s similar to pallet rack, but built for hand-loaded case or piece storage.

The Value & Versatility of Rivet Shelving

September 1, 2015

Rivet Shelving

Rivet shelving is one of the most versatile forms of industrial shelving available. With individual shelf capacities up to 1,400 pounds, it rivals the load capacity of heavy wide span or pallet rack but is designed for carton and case storage. It assembles quickly due to its tear-drop and pin connectors and is extremely sturdy whether using a single-rivet or double-rivet design. It’s also available in an amazing array of sizes and layouts.

Storage & Handling: How to Prevent Falling Items

August 17, 2015

falling items in a rack and shelving system

What goes up…

In warehousing and storage operations where inventory is stored high on racks, stacked on floors, slotted into on multi-level shelving, mezzanine deck-overs or on suspended/overhead conveyor as it moves, there is one constant: things will fall.
