The Uses and Benefits of Wire Mesh Cages

A simple design, yet essential in most warehouses, are wire mesh cages. Made of galvanised steel or powder-coated for indoor and outdoor use, the durable and time-tested cages are a cost-effective yet secure way to store high-value products.

The Benefits Of Wire Mesh Cages

Though simple, wire mesh cages are highly beneficial to warehouse managers and employees:

1. Durable

Manufactured from steel and available in coloured powder coating, the cages are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. They can be colour matched to reflect company branding or even for ease of segregation of products throughout the warehouse.

2. Modular

By design, wire mesh cages are modular and double hinged, meaning that multiple configurations are available, and any square footage can be protected. Fully customisable, they are a truly bespoke option for customers when it comes to warehouse layout design.

3. Easily picked

Thanks to their modular and customisable design, the cages are easily picked by warehouse employees. The most effective workflow can be built into the project at the time of design and installation. Doing this ensures the cages protect the stock on racking or shelving as they must, without affecting productivity and pick times.

4. Visible and ventilated

Especially for larger items, warehouse staff can see the stock in situ and easily manage quantities and rotation. Visibility also provides an unfortunate necessity to see who is going in and out of the cages, keeping theft and damage minimal. Where items can degenerate from poor ventilation, the cages are a perfect storage solution while they await distribution.

5. Cost-effective

Wire-mesh cages are not expensive and yet can save warehouse managers a considerable amount of money in loss and damage protection of their high-value goods. The outlay of the cages pays for itself almost immediately when thought of in these terms.
