Detailed information on Container Pick Walls
Container pick walls are a great option for providing a large, permanent area of storage within your warehouse or fulfilment centre.
Pick face walls can be created as either stand-alone areas, or can be incorporated into existing racking that you may have at your business. Either option will provide extensive storage that will also allow for efficient retrieval of items.
Manufactured from Correx®, the pick walls that GWP can design and manufacture for your business offer a number of specific benefits. The strength and durability of the Correx® material is comparable to that of moulded plastic bins, but is usually significantly more cost effective.
Why use Correx® bins?
The other major advantage of using Correx® stacking pick bins is that they can be tailored to your business. This can be as simple as using a specific colour to match your brand, but more importantly can be manufactured in sizes that maximise the available storage space (this can be achieved by tailoring the sizes to the available space, or your product inventory).
Saying that, you can select standard Euro sizes for your business if this is the most suitable option.
Both Correx® pick walls and moulded plastic Euro containers are resistant to moisture, grease, oil and most chemicals. This means that they can help to protect their contents, but individual bins can also contain any spillages or leaks (protecting their neighbouring locations). They are also easy to clean.
Using different coloured picking bins can also be a good tactic to segment stock, which can further aid efficiency of your picking staff. Labels and even printing can also help with this.
All of this adds up to mean that, by using pick wall containers, your business could considerably improve picking efficiency, boosting productivity and minimising fulfilment times (which can be passed on to happier customers).

What is a pick wall?
A pick wall is large area of storage that allows for the contents to be easily retrieved. Widely used in ecommerce applications, pick walls not only keep similar and related inventory close together (whilst remaining segmented), but also allows order picking staff to quickly and efficiently find the items they need to fulfil orders.
Is a pick wall different to a pick face?
The terms pick wall and pick face are actually interchangeable (some businesses will actually refer to them as a pick face wall). Both refer to a collection of storage bins / picking crates, usually with open fronts, as detailed elsewhere on this page.
Aren’t these just lots of stacking pick bins put together?
In essence, a pick face wall is a large collection of stacking pick bins. However, the key differences are that pick face walls tend to be used as stand-alone units (whereas stacking bins are often used within existing racking). Pick face walls will usually take up larger areas (to maximise the use of space), and tend to be permanent fixtures, whereas stacking bins can also be used to create temporary storage during times of peak demand, such as Black Friday or Christmas periods.
How will a pick wall help my business?
Installing a pick wall will have a number of benefits for your business. Firstly, it will help to both protect and organise stock whilst it is being stored. It will also help to maximise the available space that you have in your warehouse or fulfilment centre for storage. And it will also you or your staff picking the items ready for dispatch to find them much more quickly and easily (helping with fulfilment times and productivity).
Should I use Correx® or moulded plastic bins?
Pick walls are available in both Correx® (corrugated plastic) and moulded plastic options. In fairness there is little to choose between both options, with Correx® being fractionally lower in cost, and moulded be marginally more durable. The main advantage with Correx® bins is that the individual bins / overall size can be created to any size you require – whereas with moulded plastic bins you have to select the nearest suitable size (which may not be exactly right).
Can our pick wall match our brand colours?
If you select Correx® material for your picking wall, then you can choose from a range of standard colours. This includes white, black, grey, blue, green, red and yellow. Other colours area available, but subject to MOQs (minimum order quantities). You can also add external printing (such as logos) to your pick wall containers too.
