What are pigeon holes used for?
Pigeon holes have traditionally been used in post rooms and mail sorting offices for businesses – allowing them to sort mail for various departments or staff members. However, their use has expanded into industrial applications as well, being used for low volume picking and storage applications.
Is pigeon hole shelving suitable for warehouse use?
The problem with many existing pigeon holes, manufactured from wood, are that they are not suitable for use in many industrial environments such as warehouses or assembly lines. Whilst metal versions are fine for this, they are usually costly and offer little flexibility. As such, these Correx® pigeon holes have been designed to be a perfect solution for warehouse and production use.
Where else can plastic pigeon holes be used?
Besides being used in warehouses for picking and storage applications, Correx® plastic pigeon holes can be used in a number of other locations too. They are suitable for use alongside assembly lines, within workshops, post rooms and even offices / receptions.
Are metal or plastic pigeon holes better?
Metal pigeon holes are extremely durable, tough and rigid, making them a good choice for many applications. However, they are inflexible in terms of sizes and layouts, and are expensive. Correx® pigeon holes still offer good longevity, but can be fabricated to match your exact requirements. They are also considerably more cost effective.
Can I choose the size of the compartments within the pigeon holes?
With plastic pigeon holes manufactured from Correx®, it is possible to specify virtually every aspect of it to match your requirements. This includes overall size, compartment size / configuration, material strength (and type), colours and even if print is required.
Pigeon holes don’t look big enough for my items, what should I do?
If pigeon holes do not look as though they will be suitable for your specific application, GWP Correx® can offer you a wide range of alternative picking bins. The closest option to industrial pigeon holes would be stacking pick bins, which can allow for much larger storage compartments if required (and can also be manufactured to custom sizes).
