Every warehouse is different and has unique requirements. That’s why it’s important to find the right storage solutions for your business, ones which help create more space, time and efficiency. This is where plastic storage bins come in.
Integrating plastic storage bins into your warehouse is a smart move. Available in a huge range of shapes and sizes, they utilise space brilliantly.
An industrial bin solution that is easy to move and change as needed, helps you stay organised without a huge investment. No matter the application, there’s a storage bin designed to suit, and chances are we stock it.
Here are 9 benefits of plastic storage bins for your business:
Are you storing air, with half-empty boxes and pallets only partially utilised? There’s a better way. Most plastic storage bins and containers are stackable with interlocking pieces that can be rearranged to fit any space to achieve tall and stable storage without the need for shelves. Interlocking bins can be connected horizontally from left to right and vertically via 4 plastic pillars.
Sliding bins are excellent space savers, as not only do they stack on top of each other, but they also slide backward and forwards so you can access their contents. Plastic horizontal dividers are also available to further segment the bin.
Wall mounted bins offer a great solution as they are stackable but also have a back hinge for mounting on louvred panels. They come in a variety of colours to suit your stock coding systems.
The smaller an item, the harder it can be to find. A well-organised working space allows staff to access each item in a hassle-free manner. This is where bins with open fronts are invaluable as they provide easy access and visibility for quick parts picking. The label holders allow easy identification of items and the dustproof plastic covers keep them clean and dry whilst allowing labels to be changed out easily.
Better stock management
If stock can be quickly found and identified then it’s much easier to manage inventory and avoid out-of-stock issues. If you’re working with perishable items then inefficient storage handling can also result in having to write off expired stock.
Nesting Containers come with an interlocking cover which allows you to open the lid without having to remove it. If required you can also utilise the one-time anti-theft lock system to ensure product integrity. Once empty they can easily be nested to save space.
Most businesses prefer plastic storage solutions to cardboard boxes, metal and wooden storage units as they offer long-lasting utility. When you keep plastic storage bins sealed and intact, they are not affected by external elements. They’re made from durable, lightweight, high-density polypropylene which means they’re waterproof, rustproof, and UV resistant.
The smooth internal walls of our stackable containers permits easy and convenient clean-ups. For maintaining the fresh finish of these storage solutions, all you need is to wipe them with a clean, damp cloth.
The bottom of our stackable containers are skid-resistant, which prevents accidental falls and are extensively reinforced to provide stability on rollers. Containers are also strong with reinforced ribs ensuring stability. Barrier-free handles make them easier to carry or load.
Flat container lids are available for the stackable containers, making them ideal for the food industry, and dolly wheels are available to make handling even easier.
Plastic storage bins are an incredibly flexible storage option as they are light, reusable, easy to move around and reconfigure, and require no shelving.
Collapsible containers are also a great option for changeable storage needs as they are light and easy to assemble but fold down to between 1/4 and 1/3 of their full size when not required.
They’re reusable and recyclable, making them not only good for your bottom line, but also for the environment.
At the end of the day, plastic storage bins can save your business time and money, while making things easier for your workers.
