They are more suited for items too large to fit on flat metal shelves, yet offer the versatility to keep supplies clean and ventilated while saving space. Everything remains safe and available to handle while in storage or relocated to another area.

This design offers drawers or shelves that pull-out while integrated into extension glides. It allows you ergonomic access to ensure safer material handling during storage and retrieval.

  • Hangable label tags able to promote organization for more efficient picking.
  • Combination short and long dividers able to separate space and maximize use.
  • Red safety stops to prevent baskets from opening.

Design flexibility extends further, since the standard or heavy-duty baker rack drawer carts can have plastic or wire bins. The plastic baskets can absorb impacts without causing damage to parts. Due to being softer, they are less likely to scratch items if they are rolling around during transit. Wire alternatives offer more strength to support heavier materials.

Stainless steel wire shelves provide airflow to keep inventory clean while allowing light to pass through to enable better visibility. Wire shelves also keep moisture and dust to a minimum while increasing the effectiveness of fire-suppression systems. The wire baskets can have chrome, zinc, anti-microbial, and epoxy finishes for use in wet or dry environments.
