The space in your facilities is precious. You only have so many square feet to operate within. Maximize the use of your space with custom fabricated industrial racks. Custom fabricated racks will not only help save space, but also make you more efficient, make it easier to store product, reduce shipping costs, and increase safety.
Let’s take a deeper look into each of these benefits:
Stackable racks can be stacked on top of each other to save space when not in use, which conserves floor space and makes traffic flow more efficient.
Stackable racks let you adjust the layout of your warehouse as often as you need to. During busy months or seasons you have all the rack space you need. When things slow down you can get them out of the way. They set up and break down easily to give you maximum storage density when you need it and maximum floor space when you don’t.
Some products are too large to be stored on one standard rack, so units can combined to provide flexibility. Customized racks give you the extra space you need without the waste.
Customized racks make products easy to transport and place in convenient locations. Customized fabricated industrial racks can be designed to move with product on them, so you can shift items from storage to production. Reduce product damage by decreasing transport time, which helps to avoid excess lifting and carrying. You can even use the racks as pallets when customized to fit around your product.
Improve Storage Methods
Custom stackable racks can be created to interlock securely for safe loading and positioning. They require little effort to maintain, and reduce the risk of loose or ill-fitting parts causing storage complications or requiring adjustments.
Reduce Shipping Costs
Stackable racks can also be used for shipping to hold your product upright and make sure it stays protected during transit. Save on shipping costs as your product takes up only the amount of space it uses. When it’s returned to you, shipping providers can collapse each unit, so it takes up a fraction of the original space.
Custom fabricated industrial racks can be stacked on top of one another keeping both the product safe and the the workers safe as well. Stackable racks allow for more floor space for people, forklifts, and other machinery to operate minimizing the risk of an accident. Industrial racks customized to be used with your products ensures your products will not move around, or shift, on the racks and makes stacking them multiple levels high as safe as if they were resting on the ground.
Types of Custom Fabricated Industrial Racks
Here are few of the types of racks that can be customized to store and move product:
Roll Racks –Consider stackable roll racks for large rolls of material. Fabricators can design racks to fit individual product sizes and weights. Sides easily collapse when the rack is not in use, in contrast to wood racks, which produce messy debris and take up valuable space when not in use.
Suspended Steel Roll Racks – Many companies use rolled material, which is susceptible to edge fracture. Protect your product and maximize storage space with suspended steel racks. Use racks for shipping to protect materials in transit. Rolls of different widths can be stacked together to save space.
Racks for Storage and Industrial Shipping – Easy access is especially important when using forklifts. Keep your product safe and protected between facilities. Customize your racks to different industries or processes.
Coil Racks – The exterior of these stackable racks protects metal coils from impact and puncture. If the coils need to be transported, customized containers feature latches to secure product without having to strap it down. They can be designed to store all size coils and house extremely heavy weights.
Other types of racks include cradle pallets, fuel tank shipping racks, open frame racks, engine racks and more.
