How Warehouse Organization Can Benefit You and Your Company

October 13, 2016  |  Comments

Warehouse Organization

Organize Your Business

Is your warehouse not as efficient as it could be? Could more work be getting done over the course of a single work day? Your employees aren’t to blame—your warehouse is lacking in proper organization.

Getting your warehouse in order can unlock a whole new level of efficiency, and organization starts with warehouse storage. Today we’d like to share with you several warehouse organization methods you can use to get more work done quickly.

Racks and Shelving – Think Tall, Not Long

If you are constantly getting lost in the maze of pallets and skids around your warehouse, you may not have the right approach. Instead of spreading your pallets far and wide, you should consider stacking them on top of each other.

With the right racks and shelving, you can efficiently store your products. Multiple rows of pallet racks or open industrial shelving make use of your warehouse’s high ceiling, leaving more room on the ground floor for other systems or just getting around.

Cabinets – The Right Place for Just About Everything

There’s no need to waste time looking for just the right size screw or bit—not when you have cabinets. Bin cabinets provide plentiful storage for your smallest parts and pieces. You can store these parts by size, by tool—you can get very granular if you wish.

Cabinets provide storage for larger items as well. They’re the perfect place to store tools, cutting die, or other equipment. You won’t have to search for these items when they each have their proper place within the designated cabinet.

Plastic Storage Bins – Stack, Shelve, and Save

Maybe all your organizational woes have to do with money. Understandable, as there always seems to be one more thing your warehouse needs in order to function. However, affordable storage exists in the form of plastic storage bins.

Plastic storage bins, like bins, can be used to store very specific items for not much money at all. Rugged plastic materials are used to provide a great deal of storage for the price. Many styles of bins can stack on top of each other, helping you make the most of your space.

Lockers – Secure and Sturdy Storage

Many warehouses lack organization for even the simplest things like cleaning supplies or uniforms. This is inexcusable because lockers exist. Lockers are great for storing items that aren’t currently in use. The best part about them is that you can choose lockers in hundreds of different configurations—from tall, all-welded ventilated uniform lockers to six-tier box lockers.

Warehouse storage and organization is serious business. If you’re ready to make the most of your warehouse space, choose the right storage solution from the ones above and enhance your warehouse efficiency today!

The Ins and Outs of Conveyor Usage

October 4, 2016  |  Comments

 Getting the most use out of your conveyor

Getting the Most Out of Your Conveyor

A conveyor is a staple item for manufacturing, material handling, and similar industries. Advancements in technology have brought amazing efficiency to the work place, but a conveyor system is still a necessity. However, using a conveyor isn’t as simple as putting a product on it and watching it go; you have a veritable list of concerns to keep in mind.

Read on to learn the ins and out of conveyors:

 Deluxe Incline Conveyor

Know Your Conveyor Types

How you use your conveyor will depend on which type of conveyor you have. Different industries may rely on specific conveyor styles to bring you the most efficiency.

For example, a gravity conveyor is best used for moving steady, lighter loads. This is a cost-effective conveyor, as it does not require electricity to function as a power conveyor does. However, you’ll need to consider if the gravity conveyor has any incline to overcome, as loads are designed to travel in a general downward direction with the pull of gravity. You’ll also need to consider what type of rollers or skates to use, or if you need an expanding conveyor.

A power conveyor may be more appropriate for your needs if you’re moving a high volume of products or materials between different inclines. A power conveyor can help loads travel in any direction far easier than a gravity conveyor can.

There are other types of conveyors to consider, such as belt conveyors, pallet conveyors, or aggregate conveyors, but this shows you different movement needs require different types of conveyors.

 Medium Duty Roller Conveyors and Curved Sections

Consider the Industry

Using a conveyor system will no doubt benefit your work. However, to achieve peak efficiency you’ll need the right kind of conveyor for your industry. You may need only a few conveyor sections with rollers, or an entire gravity conveyor system spanning the whole of your facility.

There are other factors to consider as well. How busy you get during the holidays, for example. If you have to handle a large volume, you need to ensure your conveyor system can support it. Make sure your peak season doesn’t demand too much from your conveyor, or else you could find your facility swimming in product that should be on its way to customers.


Conveyor Safety

Conveyor usage would mean little without knowing proper safety practices. The fast-moving work environment means lots of product is traveling around your facility at a rapid pace. You’ll need to keep aware of your surroundings, such as the location of emergency shut-off devices. You should also make sure to tuck in any loose clothing or jewelry that could get caught between rollers.

Now that you know the ins and outs of conveyors, we hope you’ll share what you know to cultivate a safe work environment for everyone!

3 Common Misconceptions about Warehouse Safety

September 27, 2016  |  Comments

3 Common Misconceptions about Warehouse Safety

Common Misconceptions about Warehouse Safety

Despite the industry’s long history, a surprising number of misconceptions about warehouse safety still persist. As a premier dealer of warehouse equipment and supporter of warehouse safety, A Plus Warehouse is here to put several of the most common misconceptions about warehouse safety to rest.

Read on to find out what they are and help make your workplace safer.


Misconception #3: If a shelf’s capacity can support it, it’s okay to store anything

It’s too easy to think of shelving in terms of its capacity. For example, how much a certain type of shelving can hold versus what it should be used for. We see this all the time with wire racks, which can be incredibly strong, being used for pallets. However, wire racks should only be used in instances where small items could fall between the shelving, while pallet racks must support the use of forklifts. So just because a wire rack has enough capacity to carry your pallets of products, a pallet rack would be safer.

Pallet Racks

Misconception #2: Warehouse safety is completely dependent on the user.

Although this is mostly true, even workers who are paragons of safety can still encounter warehouse dangers. The truth is there are just some things about daily warehouse work that people should perform with more caution. Mostly we’re referring to employees who try to move more than they should when there are solutions available to help them complete their work safely.

Certain warehouse equipment can help ensure a safe warehouse. Products like anti-fatigue mats, adjustable pallet stackers, and other material handling equipment are essential for not only employees’ well-being but the warehouse as a whole. Changes to the warehouse can also be made to promote safety, such as reducing the depth of your shelving. This way, your employees don’t have to risk injury by overextending their reach.


Misconception #1: A warehouse is generally just a dangerous place.


With so much high-powered equipment and activity going on all the time, it’s easy to assume the warehouse is a dangerous place to work. However, the warehouse isn’t dangerous on its own. Instead, neglect and unsafe work practices can make working there dangerous, and these can easily be solved.

You can invest in certain warehouse equipment like we mentioned above to create safe work conditions. You can also schedule training sessions to ensure your employees are using equipment properly. This will get everyone on the same page and using warehouse best practices according to OSHA law and requirements.

As long as you work smart and within the proper rules and regulations, you’ll have a safe warehouse on your hands.

5 Tools Every Warehouse Needs for a Good Day’s Work

September 19, 2016  |  Comments

Five Tools Every Warehouse Needs

Your warehouse is where all the work gets done. However, the warehouse itself shouldn’t get all the credit—after all, it’s just a building. No, we’re talking about the tools in the warehouse that allow you to do the work.

Here are five tools your warehouse needs in order for you to get things done.


1. Conveyor

structural heavy duty roller conveyors with 7 ga rollers

Nothing gets things where they need to go quite like a conveyor. Whatever it is you’re moving, a conveyor saves you time and effort. You have a lot of options when it comes to choosing a conveyor for your particular type of warehouse, so get the one that fits your needs best! Roller conveyors are great for flat items like packages, while power belt conveyors move assembly parts with ease. Additionally, an expanding conveyor can find the best fit around your warehouse—perfect for fitting around tight corners and making the most of your space.

2. Lockers

Extra Wide Triple Tier Lockers

Lockers are good not only for keeping work equipment safe but for storing employee belongings, too. They’re a warehouse essential, and a wide range of styles and sizes are available at many different price points. You can find heavy duty stainless steel lockers that work great for wet warehouse conditions, as well as vented lockers for storing heavily used uniforms.

3. Ladder

Heavy Duty Rolling Safety Ladders

Going up? Ladders help you reach those higher levels without straining yourself. Even tasks as simple as changing a lightbulb are made easier with the help of a ladder, but you can find ladders suited for more demanding work as well. Rolling ladders let you reach products located on the highest pallet racks, and roof access ladders offer unhindered access to all levels of your warehouse.

4. Work Bench

High Quality Low Price Work Benches

A work bench offers your employees an individual space to focus on their work. Work benches come in many styles with features that make warehouse work more efficient, including casters, drawers, pegboard, packing hardware, and even protection from electrostatic discharge. Of course, you can always just choose a simple work bench that consists of a platform on four legs.

5. Plastic Storage Bins

Shelf Bin Units

You can never have enough storage—not when you need somewhere to store your small parts. Plastic storage bins store bits, screws, and other small mechanical parts. Some kinds of bins can even stack on top of each other, which saves a ton of space. And with the organization they offer, there’s really no reason not to invest in some storage bins for your warehouse.

Take a look at your warehouse—does it have a conveyor system, lockers, ladder, work bench, and plastic storage bins? If not, now you know you need them. Order what you need today, and look forward to getting a lot more work done.
