Rack Bin

It’s not often a new item comes along for rack systems. Quantum Storage Products has created a Rack bin. This bin is 42″ long and fits perfectly on a rack shelf.

This is great for bulk parts storage or pick systems. The bins are great for lower levels while you can still use the upper levels for pallet storage.

This is perfect for plumbing companies, electrical companies, clothing companies or any other company with a lot of similar stock.

The bins are stackable as well so you don’t have to spend a lot on beams.

Aisle Shield

Aisle Shield is a revolutionary product which is a metal wire rack backing at the price of netting. The panels are easy to install with eyebolts and provide the protection necessary to meet insurance and OSHA requirements. Many businesses don’t realize the installation of backing can actually reduce insurance premiums and save money over time.

Accordion Conveyor

Accordion conveyors I think are often over looked by most companies. Many companies prefer fixed framed conveyors because they feel they are sturdier and provide higher capacities.

Accordion conveyors come with a variety of rollers.


Black Polymer
Steel wheels

Gravity roller:


Accordion conveyors offer many standard features that are optional on fixed framed conveyors. Accordion conveyors offer adjustable legs, latching hooks and the ability to incorporate curves into the system. Accordion conveyors also compress for easy storage therefore eliminating dedicated floor space for a fixed system. The standard latches also allow multiple conveyors to be connected for one long span.

Accordion conveyors are great for unloading freight containers and other loose goods. With the increasing number of products being imported from China, accordion conveyor use should be increasing. Chinese imports generally come packed loose in containers without pallets there by causing the receiver to unload by hand. Accordion conveyors increase productivity and are ergonomically friendly for those unloading the containers.

Accordion conveyors generally have a capacity of 200 lbs per sq ft. The roller diversity also proves to be beneficial in many industries. Nylon rollers with plastic bearings are ideal for moist conditions and or refrigerated use. Nylon wheels don’t have bearings that need constant maintenance and wont seize or rust over time.

Steel wheels provide the higher capacities some companies may require. Motorized gravity wheels operate on DC drive motors with a 120VAC converter, delivering variable speeds of 0-120 feet per minute PLUS standard reversible action.

Accordion conveyors can expand to a minimum of 6′ and can be ordered to a maximum of 62′ (based on axle centers)

The price in certainly greater then a fixed frames conveyor system but I feel the options and benefits more then justify the additional cost.

Pallet Jack Stop

Pallet jacks are an essential piece of equipment for almost every warehouse or delivery truck and most pallet jacks are virtually maintenance free except in certain environments. The most important component on the pallet jack is the hydraulic pump which is the focus of this post.

The pump is filled with hydraulic fluid that is sealed into the pump with an O ring seal kit. The seals not only serve the purpose of keeping the fluid in but it also keeps contaminants out of the pump. The seals can be blown under several circumstances:

1) Overloading your pallet jack past the specified capacity

2) Attaching a chain to your pallet jack and using your forklift to pull the jack

3) Seal wear. Over time your seal will eventually become brittle and need to be replaced

4) Tilting your pallet jack on its side and resting on the handle (Typically seen in trucks so the pallet jack doesn’t move during transit)

Tilting your truck is the fastest way to blow your seals and damage your jack. When your pallet jack is on its side several things can happen. The pressure on the seals causes them to deform and allows air and contaminants inside the pump. This will cause your jack to 1) lift improperly until all the air has been released and 2) the contaminants will eventually corrupt the hydraulic fluid and will need to be replaced for a costly repair.

Tilting your truck can also cause your seals to fully blow requiring a seal kit replacement which again is a costly repair. Pump repairs generally cost around $100.00 which is practically half of the value of your jack new and is not covered under your hydraulic warranty.

There are several ways to alleviate this common problem. Some truckers use tie downs and strap the pallet jacks handle to the side of the truck stopping the jack from moving. This is a better option than tilting the truck however it can put unnecessary pressure on the handle/pump on turns and the wheels are still free to move. You can also place the jack inside a pallet, jack it up slightly (enough so the forks touch the top of the pallet but not enough to lift it) and turn the steering wheel so the jack cant roll out.

Now we come to the pallet jack stop. In my opinion this is an essential tool for all truckers and should be common place in delivery trucks. These rubber stops prevent pallet jacks from moving inside of the truck. The stops feature a ramp to help assist the entrance and exit of the jack into the stop. The steering wheels drop into a recessed square which locks the jack into place. The jack needs to be lifted slightly in order to get the jack out using the built in ramp.

The cost of a stop is approximately half of a pump repair at about $50.00 and will save you from costly and unneccessary pump repair.


Finally another alternative which is not well known is the Pallet Truck Wedge. The wedge prevents pallet truck damage in moving semi-trailers. Constructed of 100% molded urethane. Step-down design for use with all types of pallet trucks. Magnetic back for securing to pallet truck for storage. Lightweight and easy to use.

Wire Deck Dividers

Wire deck dividers are a new product on the market manufactured by Wireway Husky. The dividers can be mounted the depth or the length of the shelf and can be mounted by a spring in clip or hang from the above deck.

The dividers can be used to separate products or be used as a back/front stop. All dividers are custom made so the length and heights suit each individuals needs.

The dividers are versatile enough that you could create a custom order picking bin built into your racks instead of buying expensive collasible wire baskets or you could create vertical cubbies for blue print tube storage and pipe storage.

The wire deck dividers can also act as a division for aisle shelves so that products on one side of the shelf doesn’t fall or get pushed onto the other side.

With Fire codes requiring wire decks over wood decks, these divider will give users more ways to customize their systems and provide a more efficient means of storage.

Rack Guard


Rack Guard is a relatively new product to the material handling market. The more common backing people associate with racks are safety nets. Safety nets are a consumable item compared to rack guards as the safety nets are subject to tearing and expansion due to pressure.

Rack guard provides full protection of your products and the surrounding area. New OSHA requirements are calling for rack guards on racks located close to office structures as well as work areas.

Rack guards are also beneficial for back to back pallet rack sections. Normally one would use row spacers in order to space the racks far enough apart so the pallets wont touch, however if your forklift pushes a pallet to far you run the risk of damaging your merchandise on the fore pallet. With rack guards installed you not only protect the fore pallet but you protect any pallet from being pushed to far.

Rack guard installs easily on most existing racks and comes in a variety of sizes to accommodate varying beam widths and beam spacing.  Rack guard also has special extension kits that allow for the panels to stick out above the top of the frames so your products on the top beams levels are protected as well.

Pick Wire Deck

Wire decks are a great alternative to wood decking and are becoming a standard with new fire codes. Wire decks work for racks against a wall or for racks where products are stacked high. Standard wire decks however are not idea for order picking.

Pick Wire on the other hand is a new product on the market that gives you the benefits of a flow system without the high costs associated with a roller flow system. Pick wire decks have a built in end stop and provide last in first out (LIFO) inventory control. Pick wire fits all standard racks and drop into step beams the same way as standard wire decks.

Pick wire decks are great for wholesale/retail warehouse chains that allow customers to shop for their own products as well as large hardware/home stores. The built in end stops not only keep your products on the shelves but they provide an ideal area to add shelf labels or bar codes.
