Are you looking for an effective way to save space and improve efficiency in your warehouse? Pallet rack bins are an innovative storage solution combining traditional pallet racks with bins for storing small parts and handpicked inventory.

Conventional methods of separating pallet racking and shelves for smaller parts storage result in wasted overhead space and time-consuming order picking. The sliding pallet rack bins consolidate your storage, converting unused pallet rack space into high-density storage for small parts and slow-moving inventory.

How to Use Sliding Pallet Rack Bins

Pallet Rack BinsThe sliding storage bin rack system consists of columns of bins made of high-quality industrial fabric which hang suspended from pallet rack beams. The bins can be installed up to four rows deep within one pallet rack to maximize your available storage space. The bin columns independently slide side to side on the overhead track system to allow access to the back rows.

The sliding bin storage is ideal for storing small parts and handpicked inventory in a compact footprint, while you continue to take full advantage of your overhead space with pallet rack storage above. Sliding pallet rack storage bins are best for storing inventory in warehouse areas with limited forklift activity.

Benefits of Sliding Pallet Rack Bins

Space Savings

Sliding pallet storage bins create a high-density storage solution that saves space in your facility. A recent study found that a three rows deep sliding bin storage system resulted in 38% storage space savings, while some facilities achieved up to 90% space savings with the space-efficient sliding bin system. With traditional pallet racking above for storing large items, your facility’s vertical space won’t go to waste.

Storage Density

pallet rack with binsWith their high-density design, sliding pallet rack storage bins can increase your storage density by up to 60%. The pallet rack sliding shelves eliminate the need for aisle space between rows, allowing you to store as much as possible in a compact footprint. Plus, the pallet rack bins can be customized to your unique product specifications and storage requirements. You can even include different-sized columns in the same bay and bins in the same column.


Sliding pallet rack bins can improve productivity by 40% as they consolidate storage to bring smaller parts closer to the point of use and reduce travel time. With 100% SKU selectivity, the storage solution provides easier access to small parts. The addition of barcodes and color coding can further boost accuracy and efficiency.


Made of a durable but lightweight fabric, sliding pallet rack bins are guaranteed to last for over ten years with no maintenance required. The mold-resistant pallet rack bins can function in temperatures ranging from -20°F to 180°F, making them suitable for freezer storage. Flame-resistant and electric static-resistant options are available. Visit our online store to see our industrial storage products.

“The team at Southwest Solutions were nothing short of fantastic. First meeting with Craig, I received a customized design, in person, based on my office needs while still maintaining an efficient layout and being cost effective. Craig explained everything clearly, allowing me to understand that as modular mill-work, I would be able to move it if I ever changed offices, but without the added sales pressure to immediately make a decision. Once I had decided, I worked with Chris who assisted in picking out the finishes and scheduling the delivery and installation. The professionalism of Craig and Chris spoke volumes and I would highly recommend anyone looking to transform or fit-out an office to contact Southwest Solutions.”
