1. What is a Bin Rack?

A Bin Rack (or Action Rack) is simply a display rack with a unique configuration and style providing a tiered, sloping, visually open and compartmental approach to storage.

Bin Racking is ideal for an operation requiring accessibility and visibility of materials. This storage system embodies the Japanese ‘Kanban‘ philosophy as it easy to see when a particular item is low in stock. Storage of small components, brochures, food or parts is common.


2. Construction of Bin Racks

A bolted pre-galvanised steel frame provides a rigid frame to carry loads imparted from a series of lift out plastic bins. Options include swivel castors to make these units mobile. It is similar to a shelving system where bins replace shelves.

Offsetting the heights of the front and rear bear beams provides a sloping shelving affect.
