5 Reasons To Use Wire Rack Shelving in A Warehouse

When running a warehouse, you'll likely have many different types of supplies that you must store to ensure they are readily available. Whether you are storing food or other products, wire rack shelving offers a great solution for keeping everything organized and easy to access. But so, does every other storage option, right? 

So, what makes it better than other options? Is it worth the cost? Here are various reasons to consider adding wire rack shelving to your warehouse.

Its Durable and Long-lasting

Wire rack shelving is made of strong, durable materials that wont break down over time. The metal wire construction is sturdy and long-lasting, so you wont have to worry about replacing it if the shelf needs more than a quick cleaning. 

The wire design also allows air to flow through the shelves and reduces moisture buildup from excess humidity in your warehouse or storage facility.

Its Safe

Wire rack shelving is one of the safest storage options.

If a product falls off of a shelf onto someone, it could get seriously hurt or even killed. Its also easier to stack heavy items on wire rack shelving because its more stable than metal shelving, which could topple over if too much weight is placed on it. With a wire rack, this wont happen. 

Wire storage racks are also much lighter than metal ones. When stocking shelves with new merchandise, employees wont have to strain themselves trying to lift heavy crates or boxes onto them.  

It Maximizes Space

This is one of the main reasons you should consider wire rack shelving for your warehouse or storage area.

Because you can use every inch of the shelf, it allows you to store more items in less space. This is especially important if you have limited room and need to fit everything into a small area.

Wire rack shelving also makes it possible to store items that you normally store on the floor or shelves (such as clothing racks). This takes up less floor space and prevents dirt from getting onto expensive items like clothing since they will remain above ground level throughout storage.

It Gives You Visibility

Wire rack shelving will allow you to see everything you have. As a result, you don't have to pull boxes out of storage and search through them to find what you need. 

You can see what is missing and where it is, which makes it easy for someone else in the warehouse or distribution center to replace it. You also know what has been damaged so that it can be dealt with quickly and efficiently.

Its Easy to Clean

You can use a hose or vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt from the metal wire storage racks. A broom or dustpan helps you pick up small pieces of debris that fall on the floor.

If there are spills on the shelves, you can wipe them away with a dry cloth without damaging them. Its not necessary to clean the wire rack every day—once a week should be enough, but if you have loose debris falling off of it onto other areas of your warehouse floor, then cleaning it more often might be necessary for safety reasons.

Final Word

Wire rack storage is durable and long-lasting. Its also safe, customizable, and easy to clean. Plus, it maximizes space while still giving you visibility over the entire room, which means more organization and accessibility. Wire rack shelving is worth a second look if you are looking for an upgrade in your warehouse or garage today. Have questions? Ask us in the comments!
