Choosing a suitable warehouse shelving unit can make a huge impact on how a warehouse operates and the storage capacity that it can withhold.
With this in mind, We’ve put together our top 10 best warehouse storage solutions to help you understand which shelving is better for your warehouse.
The right warehouse shelving can make a huge difference to the storage capacity of a warehouse. With this in mind, we’ve put together our top 10 best warehouse shelving solutions…
BEST ALL-ROUNDER – PIX®
The original PIX®, available with 12 or 16 compartments as standard. Made from our patented durable honeycomb paper cardboard, units can hold up to 500kg total weight with ease. It slots together in minutes without the need for tools or fixings of any sort. They can also be packed flat again in minutes, if required. The addition of optional inserts allows compartments to be further subdivided as necessary to separate smaller SKUs. While the flat shelf edges leave ample space for product identifiers such as labels and barcodes. Our strongest warehouse storage solution, the original PIX® design is still lightweight enough to be picked up and moved by a forklift, even when fully loaded. It can also be 100% recycled at the end of its useful life.
BEST DUAL PICK FACE – PIX® TWIN
A double-sided version of the original PIX® warehouse shelving, the PIX® TWIN was designed to enable two-sided picking. This allows further flexibility for those with larger warehouse spaces to maximise the use of their floor space footprint with double-sided pick-faces. Available with 24 or 32 pick compartments as standard, PIX® TWIN comes with all the same features as the singular PIX® shelving system but is significantly stronger and more robust than simply placing two PIX® units back-to-back, meaning a safer warehouse.
BEST FOR SMALLER SPACES – PIX® SLIM
A slimline version of the original PIX® warehouse shelving system, PIX® SLIM is half the width of the standard PIX® unit and its shelves are not as deep. Available with 12 or 16 compartments as standard. This also comes with all the same benefits as the standard PIX® shelving unit, including a slot-together design, the option of additional compartment dividers and flat shelf edges for labels and barcodes.
BEST LIGHTWEIGHT OPTION – PIX® SLOTS
An even lighter weight, lower cost version of the original PIX® shelving unit. PIX® SLOTS was designed specifically for customers storing smaller, lighter weight SKUs. For whom the standard PIX® unit represented more than they really needed to secure and separate their products. As with the standard PIX® range, PIX® SLOTS warehouse shelving units are made from durable honeycomb paper cardboard, albeit a thinner version. They also slot together in minutes and can be flat-packed again quickly as needed. They have flat shelf edges for labelling purposes, and can be further sub-divided as needed with additional compartment inserts. Again, they may be picked up and moved by a forklift whether empty or full, and can be fully recycled at the end of their life.
BEST LIGHTWEIGHT DUAL PICK FACE – PIX® SLOTS TWIN
A double-sided version of PIX® SLOTS, PIX® SLOTS TWIN is far stronger and more robust than simply placing two PIX® SLOTS units back-to-back. Available with 24, 32, 48 or 96 total compartments as standard. This allows warehouse managers to make the most of their floor space utilisation while benefiting from all the same features that come as standard with PIX® warehouse shelving. Such as being quick and easy to build and dismantle. Flat shelf edges for labelling purposes, and the option of additional inserts to further sub-divide compartments.
BEST SMALLER LIGHTWEIGHT OPTION – PIX® SLOTS SLIM
A slimline PIX® SLOTS unit, PIX® SLOTS SLIM is half the width of the standard unit and less deep. Available with 12 or 32 compartments as standard. This also slots together without the need for tools or fixings of any sort. It can be further sub-divided as required to fit smaller SKUs, and has been designed to incorporate space for product identifiers and barcodes. PIX® SLOTS SLIM is ideal for warehouses with limited space and can be used in conjunction with full-size PIX® SLOTS units to maximise space utilisation.
BEST FOR APPAREL STORAGE – PIX® SLOTS ANGLED
Designed to better retain lightweight SKUs prone to falling from standard shelving. PIX® SLOTS ANGLED is essentially a standard PIX® SLOTS shelving unit, with the slot-in shelves angled rearwards instead of being horizontal. Customers that have particularly benefitted from this design are those picking and packing items of apparel, particularly lightweight items wrapped in plastic that may easily slip out of standard shelving units.
BEST WAREHOUSE SHELF – PIX® SLOTS SHELF
Available with 12 compartments as standard. Our PIX® slots shelf can be placed into existing metal racking to improve SKU separation, increase product security, and provide additional pick faces. Compartments can also be further sub-divided with the addition of optional inserts if required.
BEST RACKING FOR LARGER SKUs – PIX® XL Bin Box
The newest member of the PIX® range. The PIX® XL Bin Box provides greater durability for storing larger stock items, which is designed to hold up to 25kg across each storage bin. This freestanding shelving unit is available as twin and single sided providing increased warehouse efficiencies, pick accuracy, and additional benefits including larger pick faces for ease of accessibility.
BEST BESPOKE WAREHOUSE SHELVING – PALLITE® PIX® / PIX® SLOTS / PIX® XL Bin Box
Warehouse stock comes in all shapes and sizes. Every customer has different requirements for the products they need to house, and the space they have available to house them in. With this in mind, the entire PIX® range – including PIX® SLOTS, PIX® SLOTS ANGLED, PIX® XL Bin Box can be manufactured to bespoke sizes to suit a customer’s specific requirements. The innovative design of the products, as well as the manufacturing facilities we have on site, means that the lead times for bespoke products are much shorter than they would be for metal or wooden equivalents.
