Pallet Racks- Reasons you need them in your warehouse

Shortage of Space – If you find that you’re running short on square footage to house your inventory and manage workflow, pallet racks are the perfect solution! These racks allow you to take advantage of the vertical square footage of your warehouse by allowing safe and easy stacking of your inventory.

Employee Injuries – An onsite employee injury in the workplace can be a nightmare for your entire business! A worker can be seriously injured and unable to continue employment, your insurance rates can go up, you may face legal action, and the incident can take a toll on employee morale. A warehouse with many moving parts can greatly benefit from a pallet racking system because it minimizes clutter and eliminates common hazards faced by employees.

Damaged Inventory – If your current inventory management processes are leading to damaged goods in your warehouse, this is a clear sign that something needs to change! These damages can lead to wasted inventory and shortages, which in turn affect your revenue and profits. With pallet racks, you no longer have to resort to stacking products on top of each other and can allocate sufficient space for each pallet. This greatly reduces the likelihood of damaged goods and provides for a safer workplace.

Lack of Efficiency – Although shortcomings in efficiency are hard to pinpoint until they become obvious, they’re directly tied to organization and accessibility within the warehouse facility. If pallets of products are stacked directly on top of one another, it obviously becomes increasingly difficult to access any particular pallet the higher you stack them. Pallet racks allow for quick and easy access to all inventory, minimizing the time spent on the forklift moving pallets around to get to what you need. Also, when everything is neatly organized in pallet racks, there is a lot less clutter in the facility, making it much easier to navigate and complete tasks quickly.

Lastly, although a Pallet Racking System is a huge first step to a more streamlined, safer warehouse, it’s only the beginning! Quality Material Handling offers lots of options to help you make your warehouse operations even more efficient and effective!

Benefits of Warehouse Pallet Racking

When space is a little tight but moving or increasing the size of your warehouse storage is not an option, maximising warehouse space can be done by introducing a warehouse pallet racking system from Pallet Racking Systems Ltd.

Making the most of the height of the building, allows you to save floor space and increase capacity limits. This means that warehouse capacity can be maximised to store as much stock as possible.

Racking is frequently used to create maximum storage for manufacturing companies, distribution companies and large retail stores where heavy stock capacity is needed.

Increasing your warehouse storage will result in there fewer or no tripping hazards within walk ways and paths. Having a neater storage system may encourage workers to store goods in a more neat and efficient way, decreasing the chance of products falling from shelving.

If particular parts do not comply with regulations individual rack components can be replaced. Once safety is increased by the introduction of pallet racking, it is important that this level of safety continues.
