Why is choosing the right storage solution crucial for your warehouse?

Planners and warehouse managers are fully aware of the importance of utilising expensive square footage. The storage space in these areas becomes a critical component in the smooth running of wider business operations. With demand for online shopping on the rise and set to continue after Covid-19 restrictions ease, it is more important than ever for the available storage space to be used correctly.

Online sales are projected to account for up to 32% of total retail sales by 2024 (Source: eMarketer) and this will have significant implications for the logistics market.

Things to consider:

  • The adaptability of the shelving
  • Durability
  • Safety of the solution

Galvanised shelving.

Galvanised ShelvingFor wholesale display and warehousing areas, we often recommend a galvanised shelving solution. This system slots-together to help avoid the scratching and ageing associated with painted options. Find out more here >

To guarantee stability and strength, which is needed in these environments, you can opt for a fully galvanised or plastic solution. And these systems are fully customisable, with different accessories, such as cladding, lockable doors, drawers, dividers, and bins for a tailored solution.

Galvanised racking.

Pallet Racking with column guardsGalvanised racking is a fully adjustable slot-together system that provides rigidity and reliability.  The unique riveted beam connector design enables an evenly distributed load per level and can support up to 3500kg.

Racking systems too can be customised with accessories such as galvanised shelves, timber decking, pallet support bars and many more possibilities.
