Which Pallet Racks Are Right for Your Milwaukee Warehouse?

If your Milwaukee warehouse is in need of some new pallet racks, first you’ll need to decide which pallet racks are right for your space. Not all pallet racks are the same; in fact, the pallet racks that you choose can greatly influence the way that your warehouse works. Learn more about how each pallet rack works:

  • Selective pallet racks. The most common pallet racks used in Milwaukee warehouses. These racks have a single bay that can hold a pallet of cartons.
  • Drive through pallet racks. Allows your forklift to drive in and out of the racks. Each bay holds 6-8 pallets and is a great option for high capacity storage of single SKUs.
  • Pallet flow racks. These racks use a roller system that moves the pallets in back forward as pallets are removed. Carton flow racks are similar and used for boxes and cartons instead of pallets.

Which system you decide to use in your Milwaukee warehouse will depend a great deal on the kind of merchandise you are handling. Talk to DAK Equipment today and we’ll help you determine which pallet rack is the best option. We’ll look at how many SKUs you handle, the size and weight of the items you handle, and your volume and capacity. Then we’ll match you to the pallet racks that are perfect for your space!

You can reach out to our project managers by giving us a call or contacting us through our website. Our team can also help with the installation, inspection, and maintenance of your pallet racks, too! Just ask your project manager for more details.

How to Organize Your Chicago Industrial Shelves

Industrial shelves are a great additional to your Chicago warehouse, but they won’t do you much good if you aren’t keeping them clean and organized. Industrial shelves shouldn’t be treated as a “catch-all” for items that no one wants to put away properly. Treating them like this can leave your warehouse a disorganized mess and slow down your production. DAK Equipment has tips to help you keep your industrial shelves organized:

  • Use shelf labels. Make sure that each shelf of is clearly labeled with its purpose and what should be on there. Be strict about ensuring that is the only thing appearing on those shelves.
  • Stack items neatly on your shelves. It may seem like a simple thing, but stacking items neatly can not only help you visually identify items faster, but it can help you find more space for storage quickly.
  • Schedule times to clean your shelves. Have a time on your calendar where shelves are sorted, wiped down, and maintained. This will keep them clean and alert you to any maintenance issues early on.
  • Use bins to sort small items. Small items are usually the main culprit of disorganized shelving. Purchase bins from DAK Equipment to sort and store small items on your industrial shelves.

Need more tips? Talk to the DAK Equipment project managers today. They’ll help you get the industrial shelves you need along with accessories that can help you keep your shelving organized and looking its best. Call us or contact us through our website today!
