How a warehouse storage racks manufacturer can increase warehouse capacity

A warehouse storage racks manufacturer helps you to plan and implement storage rack systems that maximise storage capacity. When reorganising storage or planning new storage facilities, it’s beneficial to enlist the help of a warehouse storage racks manufacturer who is an expert on storage solutions.

Plan the layout

When planning the arrangement of storage racks, there are several factors to consider, including aisle width, product demand and the safety of workers. Steely Products has years of experience in warehouse storage and will help you throughout the planning stage, matching your requirements to the best type of racking equipment.

The layout is now also influenced by the need for social distancing to protect workers from COVID-19. One-way systems and aisles wide enough for workers to pass within a safe distance from each other should be part of the design. These social distancing measures are not necessarily temporary, as there could be further COVID-19 waves and possible outbreaks of other viruses in the future.

The location of different items types will affect what racks are needed and how many shelves are required in each bay. High demand items should be stored nearer the packing stations, and items that are often ordered together can be stored next to each other.

The budget

It can be a mistake to create a storage system budget based on the cheapest storage racks available, as this can be a false economy. Cheap racks will not last as long as premium quality racks. Our storage racks are made using high-quality tubular steel and are fabricated in our workshops by highly skilled metalworkers. To maintain strict quality control, all parts of the manufacturing process are done in house, not outsourced.

The best storage rack solution may cost a little extra, but after investing in quality racking you can expect many years of trouble-free storage.

There is no one size fits all

Every warehouse is unique – it is a certain size, could have obstructions such as columns, and stores a variety of different items. For example, the furniture warehouse of Oakworld, which stores large tables, is very different from the Crew Clothing warehouse, which holds thousands of garments. Clothing is a seasonal industry with different clothing items in demand at different times of the year. As a result, the garment warehouse needs to be flexible enough to store each season’s garments.

A warehouse has to find the racking system that works best for them. A warehouse storage racks manufacturer supplies a wide range of storage equipment that are adaptable for different product ranges.

Don’t always use existing equipment

When reorganising the layout of storage racks, don’t necessarily base the layout on the existing equipment, as this may not be the most efficient way to organise the storage areas. Different types of storage racks may be better. Don’t make a layout plan only influenced by saving money – instead consider buying new, more efficient racks.
