Industrial shelving keeps your warehouse products organized. Without it, you can easily lose track of your most popular items and overstock, ultimately causing a loss in profits because of the time it takes to sort through the chaos.
Think of your warehouse like a city. If all the buildings in New York City were one-story-tall, it would drastically reduce the amount of people that could live in its boundaries. Skyscrapers and high-rise apartment buildings make it possible for millions of people to bunch together in an extremely dense surface area. Shelving hardware lets you stack your inventory vertically, increasing the density and efficiency of your warehouse space.
Once you decide to maximize your operation by employing industrial shelving, take a look at its most common types:
Metal clip-type shelving is ideal if you run a flexible operation and frequently need to re-arrange your warehouse layout. Compression clips facilitate the installation process and help store large-scale packages.
A multilevel shelving system opens up unused overhead space. For highly restockable items in high volume, an open unit is ideal, whereas closed units favor sensitive items and perishables. If you need a solution that allows for a deep level of organization and separation, go with a bin unit.
