Steel racking solutions for warehouses

You might be moving warehouse, expanding your current operation, or simply starting out. Whatever the reason, you’re going to need to look at your steel racking options to make picking stock as easy as possible, and to keep things tidy and organised.

It’s health and safety compliant

Let’s get one thing straight, in most cases, stacking things on the floor isn’t necessarily compliant with health and safety rules. It might be OK for larger items that are easy to see and navigate around, but for smaller things, it’s an accident waiting to happen – not something any business owner wants.

Using steel racking means items are off the floor and up where they can’t be a tripping hazard. Obviously, to make everything completely safe, health and safety regulations need to be followed when retrieving items, but at least stock isn’t on the floor for people to fall over.

It’s organised

It’s easy for warehouses to fall into disarray which can mean things go missing and valuable time is wasted – a nightmare for most businesses. No matter how you organise your warehouse, the key is that you want to retrieve items quickly and easily without any hassle. This means knowing where in the warehouse they are and on what exact shelf.

Steel racking helps you organise your stock in whatever way is best for your business so you can easily find and retrieve items from any part of the building at any time. This helps your whole operation run smoothly and efficiently, saving you time and money.

Picking made easy

Whether you’re storing small items that can be picked by hand, or larger items that need to be picked by machine, steel racking makes things simple as everything has its place. If each item is assigned a specific warehouse location, pickers can go directly to that place and retrieve the item in question.

For the same reason, it also allows stock takes to run much more efficiently as it’s easy to spot where things should be and ascertain if numbers are correct.
