Nowadays there are many different types of commercial storage solutions. The right type for your business depends on which items you need to store. For small parts and tools, bin racks are the best options. They are versatile, do not take much space, and hold a large amount of small to medium size items. The bins are usually made of hard plastic and are very sturdy. That being said, they can be easily replaced after years of use. So if you use a good brand with a high quality rack, it will last a lifetime.
There are some features that make a commercial bin rack better than others. Find them below.
There are a few different ways to have bin racks. They can have stands, being built on wheels, or even installed on walls. The type of rack suitable for you depends on your usage and the area you would like to keep the system, let’s go through them to find the best type for you.
Bin wall mounted racks are very popular in residential garages, and small workshops or warehouses, as installing the racks on the wall is a great way to save space. Small racks start at 30 bins and can have as many bins as you need. The limitation will be the space on the wall. The 60 bin parts rack is a popular option. It offers a good number of bins without taking up all space on the wall.
Mounted racks often offer an extra feature: tools holder. It is the perfect solution for tools and accessories storage.This system has half of its frame assembled with traditional storage bins; the other half is a peg board. The pegs work as a hook for tools, and the board has pre-drilled holes where the pegs are attached to. So you can distribute the pegs anyway you like, allowing you to shape the system to suit your needs.
Floor rack bin organizer is a storage system on stands. It takes more space than wall mounted racks, but they are flexible products, as you can move the rack from time to time to suit your needs. Usually racks on stands are not joinable with other similar racks. Obviously you can use more than one, but they will not work as just a one piece unit.
As it is a semi-portable system, it is not large. It does not have other features apart from storage bins. In summary it is a very basic system.
Bin rack with wheels is ideal for users who need a portable storage system. Mechanical workshops are a great example, where the parts need to be taken to where the vehicle that needs to be serviced or repaired is. The portability of this product comes with a price, as it is a very simple system storage wise. That being said, the rack must be robust enough to withstand constant handling and holding a large number or tools or parts.
One important feature this product should have is brake-able castor wheels, as if it is moved accidentally or even intentionally it can cause great damage to the system, tools it holds, workshop or warehouse, property nearby and people around it.
Good brands will also offer additional storage with bottom and top tray. After all, an extra storage space is never too much.
