Worker unloading boxesAny business with a warehouse comes with unique storage needs. Without proper storage, pilfering goods becomes easy while access to others becomes a challenge. Inadequate storage solutions also lead to significant losses from spoilt or damaged stock.

There are different options for proper storage and easy access. Heavy duty industrial storage cabinets and shelving are the popular ones. There are many shelving variations for warehouses, but the following are the three primary shelving categories many companies choose for their heavy-duty industrial shelving needs.

Rivet Shelving

Rivet shelves are constructed with solid steel frames, particle boards, solid steel, or plywood decking. These shelves are fast to assemble, economical, versatile and robust. They also have the highest capacities making them ideal for storage of heavy, high-density and bulky goods. But rivet shelving is not very aesthetically appealing and heavy. It also is expensive to ship to your warehouse.

Steel Shelving

This option is for high-density use such as mezzanine storage. Steel shelving comes in closed and open styles with sway and back braces for enhanced stability. The shelves are easily customisable and more adjustable compared to rivet shelves. But they are also expensive, take considerable effort to install and cannot be easily transformed into mobile storage like rivet and wire shelves.

Wire Shelving

This option, like rivet shelves, has open construction and can be accessed from four sides. Wire shelving is easy to wipe and aesthetically pleasing. It is hence commonly used in wet applications and food and pharmaceutical industries. Wire shelves are however more expensive than rivet shelves and come in fewer size variations.

The right shelving option can affect the flow of your delivery and storage processes. It can be the primary determinant of your warehouse’s smooth logistic operations. Find a shelving supplier a supplier who invests in the latest innovations to guarantee your shelves are of the highest quality available.
