Structural Barriers for Warehouses
An organized warehouse is an efficient one -- and that's why it's important to ensure you maintain adequate warehouse organization and safety by setting up structural barriers in key locations throughout the warehouse.
Structural barriers can help keep personnel safe, equipment protected from damage and a warehouse more organized as a whole -- thus creating optimal warehouse efficiency. Here are the four most important places within the warehouse where structural barriers should always be located for ideal warehouse organization:
Modular offices are small structures that create office space within a warehouse without requiring extensive construction work. These modular offices are also relatively fragile and require protection from the heavy-duty machinery that is used in the warehouse. You should set up guard rails or structural bollards around modular office structures to keep them safe from damage.
Setting up guard rails around items in storage in a warehouse is essential, as forklift accidents can happen that damage these items if they aren't protected by structural barriers.
Battery changing equipment and battery wash equipment
When forklift battery rooms have as many safety hazards and dangers as they do, it's essential to make sure you set up structural barriers like guard rails around the equipment contained in this room to keep the room as hazard-free as possible for personnel. Structural barriers will also protect battery handling equipment from everyday damage while it's not in use.
