The success of a warehouse hinges on one core principle – how well your business optimises its available space. If your workplace isn’t laid out properly, it’ll hinder your staff’s workflow and reduce their efficiency. This results in lower productivity and reduced margins. So how can you combat this? You adjust your warehouse with the correct solution to increase your efficiency.
At Locators, we know that every business is unique, and this is where the capability and experience of our storage division really shines. One form of racking might be a fantastic fit in Warehouse A but ill-suited to Warehouse B. Our integrated approach to material handling equipment (MHE) and storage solutions helps isolate this.
The right racking system is essential for supporting your business. Safe, high-quality storage solutions offer efficient storage for pallets, boxes, containers and more. Plus, as a fully integrated independent supplier, we offer impartial advice on bespoke storage solutions and MHE. Want to see what we can identify in your materials handling operation? If so, we’d be happy to discuss your needs via our free consultancy service.
Our Six-Step Process
Ensure a safe working environment.
Anti-Collapse Mesh & Partitioning
Warehouses must remain a safe working space for you and your staff. Personnel not only need to be protected in the event that goods fall from above but those goods need to be secured. Anti-collapse mesh and partitioning is a versatile solution that achieves just that.
Barriers & Rack Protection
Whilst practical and space-efficient, racking can fall like dominoes if struck hard by heavy machinery. To avoid buckling the structure, Locators provide a number of protection solutions. These include upright protection, barrier systems and protection posts.
Rack Inspection & Maintenance
Our inspection service ensures your warehouse remains a safe working environment. Our SEMA approved inspector will help to ensure that your storage equipment is in good order. Plus, we also offer training for your staff to carry out their own assessments too.
Get more out of the space you have.
Industrial Fit Out
We specialise in transforming industrial spaces into optimal working environments. This includes everything from the mezzanine floor in your warehouse to the chair in your office. We focus on the heart of your operation — your people and their workspace.
Cantilever racking does away with the traditional pallet racking format. This makes it easier for businesses who need to store longer loads. Despite the open nature of this racking, it’s still possible to use the space. Provided it’s decked, it can suitably store most products.
Live Storage Systems
In placing stored goods on rollers, you can speed up loading and reduce travel distances. It also allows for a greater depth of storage than standard storage systems. It’s ideally suited for holding or marshalling areas for finished goods awaiting despatch.
A perfect alternative for those businesses in need of expansion. Mezzanine floors maximise the spatial capacity of your current location. These floors have many applications, such as warehousing, retail, offices and production. They also free up space underneath.
Space is expensive, yet there’s always a need to store more within your available volume. This is why adjustable pallet racking (APR) is such a sought after commodity, as it’s a low-cost system. Its modular design can also adjust to store different sized goods.
Why contact Locators?
Because we are different. We understand the way storage systems integrate with materials handling equipment and our customers’ overall operation. Our independence and wide product range means our customers get what is best for their business in their industry.
STORAGE SOLUTION PROJECT
ASM AUTORECYCLING LTD
Locators supply both storage systems and all types of forklift trucks and are able to design storage systems so they work seamlessly with their materials handling equipment. Locators proposed using a rail-guided Combilift C4000 multi-directional forklift within aisles of just 3220mm wide, providing storage for 432 vehicles. This significantly improved the storage density when compared with the 6400mm aisle width required for the operation of a counterbalance forklift.
