Have you ever considered how much choosing the right type of floor identification can enhance an efficient flow of goods in your warehouse? Your warehouse floor is subjected to heavy traffic from forklifts, reach trucks, trolleys, carts and the like on a daily basis. The choice of identification used for your bulk storage locations for instance, should be well thought out. Your work environment as well as the desired durability of the labels play a key factor in your decision-making.
Trolleys, roll cages, rolling carts
Our Economy labels are a low-cost and durable solution for warehouse floor identification. The scratch-proof lexan topcoat of these polypropylene labels ensures the continued legibility of both the barcode and the plain text.
These plastic labels are often used in warehouses with heavy traffic from standard material handling equipment, such as trolleys, carts and cages, and little to no forklifts or reach trucks. Even though Economy labels are made out of durable polyester with a strong acrylic adhesive, they aren’t the best option for a long-term solution if your warehouse experiences heavy traffic from forklifts, reach trucks etc. In those instances, we recommend choosing one of our metal floor frames. On the plus side, the Economy labels are easy to install and fairly easy to remove if the situation calls for it. A smart, tailor-made solution when you’re on a limited budget./p>
Average to heavy forklift traffic
If hundreds of pallets and products are continuously being moved by heavy forklifts, your warehouse requires a different identification solution: floor frame kits. These metal frames are available in a standard and extreme version to provide a sturdy and durable solution to identifying bulk storage locations. The frames can be anchored to the floor either chemically or with heavy duty concrete screws. The label that’s placed in the middle of the frame can be custom-designed to include a barcode and/or plain text. It’s protected by a replaceable perspex cover.
The frame on our standard floor frame has a a rectangular shape with a thickness of 1.5mm. It’s ideally suited for use in warehouses with an average amount of traffic. The frame on the extreme floor frame, in comparison, has an oval shape with a thickness of 3mm to ensure minimal impact damage from every corner. The perfect solution for both indoor and outdoor use and a durable long-term identification solution for the effects of abuse from heavy traffic.
Extreme work environments place higher demands on floor identification. The average plastic floor label won’t survive the extreme conditions of outdoor storage locations or extremely busy warehouses. Our advice? A round floor frame that will stand the test of time.
This round metal frame is even sturdier than its oval companion. The frame itself has a thickness of 6mm, along with slanted sides to minimise impact damage. It’s ideally suited for use on concrete or tarmac surfaces, and therefore the perfect choice for labeling your outdoor bulk storage locations. Simply install the frame with the right sealant and you’re all set. The 80x80mm label that is placed in the center of the frame can be customised to your specific wishes. It’s protected by a 2mm thick perspex cover so you won’t have to worry about the legibility of your barcode, plain text, arrows and numbers for a long time to come.
