Space management is a relatively new concept for Ukraine, and a well-developed tool for marketing and personnel management in the West. This approach is equally important for warehouses, offices, shops, because it affects the increase in sales, and even for personal space. Many workers work remotely, and the organisation of space affects work efficiency.
Today, the business has a choice: are you changing or are replacing you. Of course, everyone will choose the first option. Therefore, the space around consumers and workers begins to change. Open space, warehouse logistics, trading space management - words are different in content, but the same in meaning. This is all about organising space to meet the needs of the company and increasing profits as a result of these actions.
For warehouses, space management is important primarily from the point of view of organising logistics inside the warehouse. This affects the operational picking of orders from different positions located in different corners of the warehouse. To organise the space in warehouses, racks are used that can withstand heavy loads and are durable in these operating conditions. The main requirements for shelving is the compilation and easy access of cargo for further shipment. For the correct choice of shelving, it is necessary to take into account the functions of the warehouse, the type and options for handling cargo. Most often in warehouses use combined warehouse solutions for different types of shelving.
Types of shelving for warehouses: pallet for multi-tier storage of goods on pallets, cantilever for long loads, shelf for box and piece goods, mezzanine - multi-tiered design of pallet, cantilever and shelf racks.
Shelving racks are the most popular for small and medium-sized warehouses. Their design allows you to change the height between the shelves, saves space, they are quickly mounted and dismantled and withstand heavy loads.
The best option when choosing shelving is a domestic manufacturer, which will allow you to quickly receive an order and communicate without intermediaries. The METKASPOSTACH factory has been producing racks in accordance with European standards for 12 years in the Ukrainian market.
The daily balance of products in the warehouse of the plant is more than 3,000 units of goods and makes it possible to ship racks in a short time. When ordering from a domestic manufacturer, you get the opportunity to order the design of shelves individually for your needs and quickly receive your order.
For office life, the trend of space management has turned into a reorganisation of companies, because more and more employees are working on a free schedule and remotely. Such a trend frees up more space and turns it into a common open space with an increased number of meeting rooms. The flexibility of the office space helps companies optimise costs and increase employee efficiency and loyalty. Therefore, with the optimisation of space, an agile transformation trend comes to offices, in which the spacious open space is complemented by the ability to quickly transform and rearrange jobs to new company needs.
The main trend today is individualisation, self-expression, functionality and comfort of the workplace. In a flexible interior, walls are replaced by modular furniture, mobile partitions and screens. To store things and papers, and to save space in zoning, open spaces often use racks, which makes it possible to distinguish between the working space and the use. When choosing such racks, an important nuance is the appearance, stability and load on the shelf that this model withstands. Office shelving should support a weight of 30-50 kg per shelf, because 20 secondary books is already 10 kg. The best choice for this task would be a painted rack with metal shelves, such as the model series "Elegant" and "Rivers". Models of these racks allow you to adjust the number and height of shelves and quickly change their design from full height to the cabinet.
Among the advantages of shelf metal racks, it is worth highlighting easy assembly and disassembly, optimal price-quality ratio, long-term operation period and the possibility of manufacturing models for individual consumer needs.
Metal racks do not have significant shortcomings and satisfy the needs of the most demanding customers. When choosing racks, it is necessary to take into account their purpose in the interior and pay attention to the bearing capacity.
