Description

Detailed information on Correx® Shelf Bins

Correx® shelf bins provide a number of inherent benefits for your business.

For example, using these storage / parts bins to segment your inventory makes items much easier to find. This is further enhanced by using different colours of bins, which allow for even quicker identification of where a specific item is kept.

They also allow much more efficient use of space. Not only does this reduce storage overheads, but means products or parts are generally kept closer together. Whilst this minimises storage costs, it also means staff have less distance to travel to pick the items they require. This is particularly true when specifying custom sized picking bins.

Using custom sizes to fit your existing racking also eliminates the need for further investment to ensure everything is compatible. And, by specifying custom Correx® shelf bins – rather than using stock, moulded bins – is that you can choose from a wide range of specific options at the outset.

This includes everything from colours, printing, labelling, internal dividers, structural design and much more.

Why Correx® Parts Bins?

There are a number of other benefits specific to Correx® shelf bins too.

This includes quicker stock takes (which even applies to quick, visual stock checks), and aiding employee safety through the lightweight bins being easy to handle.

Another key benefit when compared with cardboard K bins, in that they are resistant to oil, grease and most chemicals as well as moisture / liquids.

Drop front shelf bins made from Correx® are easy to clean, so if they do get dirty they can be wiped clean using most standard cleaning products. This is in contrast to corrugated cardboard, whereby if the bin gets dirty or damp (or worse), it is simply discarded.

These properties inherent in Correx® also make this type of storage bin perfect for medical and clean room applications. This is suitability is further enhanced due their compatibility with refrigeration and cold store applications.

And, whilst the price obviously varies, depending on what material type and design you decide to use, in general Correx® parts bins offer the best combination of performance, longevity and lifetime cost.

Finally, Correx® bins (and admittedly cardboard) can be supplied and stored flat. This can minimise they space required when not in use, and provide flexibility if your storage requirement changes at different points in the year.

So in summary, using Correx® shelf bins at your business allows for improved organisation of your stock, parts or components, aid quick visual stock checks, and can help make more efficient use of space in your racking or fulfilment centre.

FAQs

Common questions regarding Correx® Shelf Bins

Below you can find a list of the most frequently asked questions on the topic of Correx® Shelf Bins.

However, please contact a friendly adviser on 01793 754 457 or email correx@gwp.co.uk if you haven’t found the info you need.

What is a shelf bin?

A shelf bin is a name to container commonly used in racking (hence the prefix of “shelf”) to store products or parts. Their open top / front design also allows order pickers to easily retrieve items when fulfilling orders or moving parts to a production line. They are particularly popular with ecommerce businesses that use them for storing their inventory.

Are shelf bins different from parts bins?

In essence, parts bins and shelf bins are the same product. Small parts bins may be a slightly more common term for bins used for storing screws, nuts, bolts and other small components, and this type of bin may also have a louvre allowing it to be mounted on a wall. Although they look the same, shelf bins are often larger and are used for storing and organising product or larger parts before being “picked” to be dispatched / used.

Can these bins be stacked?

Whilst some types of moulded parts bins can be stacked – and Correx® stackable shelf bins can be designed if required – generally shelf bins will be used one high in racking or shelving (which does not generally allow for much space above). If stacking pick bins are required, then it is possible to source these from GWP Correx®.

What sizes shelf bins are available?

Whilst there are numerous stock sizes available, these can vary from supplier to supplier. This can mean issues with compatibility between bins and racking, as well as not making efficient use of space (effectively you pay to store fresh air). Correx® shelf bins can be manufactured to any stock size / design, or can be tailored to your exact specification.

What is Correx®?

Correx® is a form of corrugated plastic (many people refer to it as plastic cardboard). It is ideal for manufacturing shelf bins, as it allows for complete size flexibility whilst providing strength and longevity similar to moulded plastic bins. It is also considerably more durable and long lasting than corrugated cardboard.

Are Correx® shelf bins better than cardboard K bins?

Depending on the application, Correx® bins may be more suitable than cardboard K bins. However, there are many applications where the additional strength and longevity provided by Correx® shelf bins isn’t required (meaning the lower price of cardboard bins makes them more suitable). As GWP provide both Correx® and cardboard shelf bins, we are able to offer genuinely impartial advice on the best solution for your business.

Would moulded plastic storage bins be better for my business?

As with the differences between Correx® shelf bins and cardboard K bins, whether you require moulded plastic bins depends on your specific application. Moulded plastic bins do offer the highest levels of strength and durability, but are the most expensive (and only come in standard sizes). As GWP offer moulded plastic, Correx® and cardboard bins.
