There are a few different types of stackable plastic bins for you to consider , and we'd like to explain them to you so you have a better understanding, and therefore can order your plastic bins in confidence from us. Stack and Nest boxes are plastic bins that stack one on top of the other , or if rotated 180 nest within each other. This is very handy as bins that only stack and do not nest waste space when they are not being used. Shelf bins are bins with a lip on the back that sit on steel shelving units. They have flat bottoms and normally are 4 inches high. These bins nest but do not stack. Shelf bins are ideal for dense storage in shelving units or standard storage cabinets. Ultra Bins are the Quantum version of the traditional Akro Bin. These plastic bins fit ont louvers that can be mounted to a cabinet , wall or even material handling cart. Most of our bin cabinets including the KingCab are outfitted with Utra stacking plastic bins by Quantum , Akro , Linvar , Valley Craft and others.
In high tech field, many customers require conductive plastic bins. Of course we stock these as well. We also have conductive bin cabinets as well — to safely store valuable semi-conductors within your cabinet.
If you need stackable bins larger than 24 inches, Quantum, LewisBins and A Plus Warehouse have you covered. Magnum bins are amazingly large and are even available with casters. Some bins can pack in so much weight that carrying them is impractical. Casters on bins is an innovation of the past few years. Another category of plastic bins is the tip out bin.
A Plus Warehouse sells tip out bins in strips of 1 bin up to 10 per strip. These can be as small as 2 inches and as big as over 10 inches. We pre-configure tip out plastic bin systems for ease in ordering. Why worry about ordering the correct amount of nut and bolts, the optimum amount of trips and strip mounting hardware. One model number from A Plus Warehouse tells us all that with no work on your side.
For convenience we pre-package shelf plastic bins with our steel shelving to make turnkey systems. It takes some fancy math to order the proper amount of shelf bins to maximize storage space on shelving. Having done this for many customers, we started offering systems pre-designed. Order our bin shelving systems and don't worry about having too few bins you will have the right number — even a few extra in cases. You may also want to consider our engineered wire shelving with bins. We provide some of these wire shelving plastic bin carts with specialized stacking two way bins. A two way bin can be loaded from either side. This is a great feature that saves you from constantly rotating your cart or reversing the orientation of your bins over and over.
