Hanging, stacking, shelf style, totes, stackable containers…etc. These are all styles of bins which are designed for efficient storage. It can be difficult to differentiate and decide what type of bin storage solution to go with when working on a project to clean up your work area. To help narrow down the selection a bit we have highlighted some popular series below:
Hanging and Stacking Bins are designed with an anti-slide design which prevents stacked bins from shifting when loaded. The bins can be organized with dividers that are optional which allow you to create customizable compartment areas and sizes within the bin. There is a lip which supports the bin on the hanging system and the curved bottom hopper front makes it easy to grab small parts from the bin. The side ribs increase strength and prevent spreading when the bin is stacked. These bins are efficient, functional, durable and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors.
Hanging Sloped Bins have a sloped side and hanging lip which lets the bin hang at an angle for maximum visibility and part access. The flat side hanging lip keeps the bin level when hanging and the rear hang-lock allows the bin to tilt out on steel or wire shelving. Divider slots allow for additional storage options and the integrated lid holes allow for easy attachment of the optional crystal clear dust protection lids. These bins are versatile, nestable and come in a wide variety of shapes, colors and sizes.
Stak-N-Store Bins are stackable and allow for easy access to products while in a stacked position. They have large rounded corners and rolled rims to increase the strength of the bins. The side ribs add stability when stacked and the wide hopper front allows for easy access to bulky items. The large comfort grip handles make it easy to pick-up and move these bins when loaded with product. These are stackable, durable, cost-effective and come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes.
ShelfMax Bins are engineered for use on shelving and are great for gliding in and out of the shelving to access and store products. The wide hopper front allows for easy access and the built in rear hang-lock allows the bin to tilt out for complete access. The bins have molded in label areas to identify the contents and each bin accepts up to 7 dividers for storage customization. These bins are efficient, durable, nestable and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors.
Economy Bins are stable and nestable but are divided into many different sections while being manufactured out of a one piece mold. The single piece is configured into a six section divider across the length of the piece which is 33” wide and 5” high. These are designed to fit on to a 36” wide steel and wire shelving unit. These are a cost effective alternative to flimsy cardboard boxes and are durable with double wall construction and one piece injection molded manufacturing. They can safely be stacked using a 3/8” wood dowel rod and are nestable when empty making them easy to store when not in use. These are available in 12” or 18” depths with color options of red, yellow and blue.
Louvered Hanging Systems are a customizable vertical storage solution for hanging bins. The louvered panels securely support bins and are manufactured out of heavy duty 16 gauge cold rolled steel for strength and durability. The powder coated finish provides an attractive look and comes in several different color options. These panels are efficient, flexible, stationary or mobile and can be both single sided and double sided.
With all of the options and styles mentioned above this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to bins, totes and other industrial storage options. The options can seem endless and overwhelming so it often makes sense to call your local rep to work through specifics on your project to ensure you find exactly the type of storage solution you are seeking.
