3 Small Parts Storage Ideas to Keep You Organized
Keeping up with all the parts in your maintenance and repair facility is a difficult task. And the small parts are the worst because they are just so darn tiny. Unfortunately, you need them to get the job done. So what can you do to make it easier to organize all your small parts? Well we have three ideas just for you.
Sliding Mobile Bin Shelving
Using bins is an excellent solution for storing small parts. You can label the bins or use color coding for easy retrieval. And they keep parts organized in groups and are easy to move around. However, there is one drawback to using bins: they suck up valuable space.
In the past you might have been resistant to using bins because of their space requirements, but that issue is completely solved with sliding mobile bin shelving. This unique storage system increases bin storage capacity while reducing the amount of floor space required for storage.
What sliding mobile bin shelving does is remove access aisles that would typically eat up all your space. Shelves are stacked one row in front of the other; each row slides back and forth on tracks to give you access to the rows behind it. And you can stack up to 4 rows in front of each other.
Modular Drawer Cabinets
Modular drawer cabinets are perfect for maintenance departments, supply parts rooms, warehouses, or anywhere you need to store small parts. Accessories like partitions, plastic bins, and hanging file bars let you personalize how your parts are stored. This way employees can organize their space to best meet their working styles.
The cabinets stand up to intensive daily use and each drawer can hold up to 400 pounds. With hundreds of combinations (some even have wheels to help you move them around your facility), you’re guaranteed to find a modular drawer cabinet that will work for your small parts.
Shelving with Modular Drawers
But what do you do if you don’t have enough small parts to justify buying a whole storage system just for parts? You use shelving with modular drawers. This storage system allows you to store large, medium, and small parts all in one unit. It’s designed to store heavy items on the lower shelf level, medium-size parts on the upper levels, and small parts in the drawers.
These are just three ways you can organize small parts. You can find more industrial storage solutions online at StoreMoreStore. Or give us a call at 1-855-786-7667.
Use Sliding Bin Shelving to Organize Small Parts
Industrial type businesses have been storing small parts in bins for years. The reasons are simple:
- bins allow you to use color coding to speed up retrieval
- small parts stay put and won’t slip through cracks
- various size bins will store many types of parts
- bins are an inexpensive investment
But there is one major drawback to using bins: they take up a lot of space. And if you keep them on shelves that don’t adjust, you’re wasting even more space. So how can you reap all the benefits of bin storage without wasting so much space? Use sliding bin shelving!
How Does Sliding Bin Shelving Work?
Sliding bin shelving is an excellent solution for organizing your small parts. The shelving is specially designed for plastic and cardboard parts bins. The way sliding bin shelving works to save space is very straightforward. Shelving units are stacked one in front of the other with the front shelving units sliding back and forth on tracks in front of the back units. The result is a high capacity storage system that stores the greatest number of items in the smallest footprint.
