Storing small parts safely whilst keeping them in sight

If you’re in a production line or working to put together orders in a warehouse, you’ll work much quicker and easier if you can see what you’re storing and grab what is needed quickly.

Picking bins allow you to store small parts and objects safely whilst meaning you can still see them; excellent for a fast production schedule. Our picking bins are made of high density polyethylene, which means they are high resistant to oils and high/low temperatures.

Storing hazardous substances safely

As a business with years of experience in workplace health and safety, we take pride in being able to provide our customers, not just with general advice about workplace safety, but also the products in order to implement the advice given.

The storage/waste container you need will, of course, depend on the substance you are storing.

Are you looking to store flammable substances? Look no further than galvanised metal bins – you will need, however, to check the product specifies whether it is leak proof or non-leak proof. This will obviously determine whether it is suitable for your substance. Galvanisation is the process of coating metal with zinc to enhance its protective properties.
