Don't forget wire partitions and wire partition systems

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 7, 2013 7:54:00 AM

Everyone knows A Plus Warehouse sells cabinets , locker, racks and shelving. Customers do notWire Partitions all realize that we sell wire partitions and wire partition systems as well! Wire partitions are used to add security and safety as well!  From Aasimov's IROBOT , we know that the prime directive for robots is to harm no people.  The problem is that robots don't know anything other than the task to be done.  Best to have robots caged off so people can't get between a robot and his work!

Like many other things in this society , the Government has rules we are directed to follow for our own safety.  I'm sure if the marketing wonks here at A Plus Warehouse looked hard enough , they'd find an edict insytrucing you that you must order wire partition systems or face a fine.  We prefer to appeal to logic and reason rather than Governmental decrees.  A wire partition system is a very inexpensive way to secure expensive inventory , and the keep personnel away from where they should ne be.

The attractive wire partition shown is a Jesco item.  The great thing about this image is that it is ONE model number.  With Jesco and A Plus Warehouse , no time is wasted in engineering systems.  These were all designed over 20 years ago, and we work from existing bills of materials.  The wheel has already been created - we don't need to re-invent it every time!

Give us a call at 800-209-8798 and we'll quote you the wire partition system you always wanted.

Lockers For Sale | You Need 'em we got 'em

Is your firm looking for lockers for sale ? If so , you have found the right Lockers For Salewebsite! We have lockers for sale throughout the USA and ship everywhere! There are several lock lines we carry , and it makes some sense to mention them in this blogpost.

The locker shown on the right is a very peculiar item.  A 16 person locker has 2 6 tier openings separated by a 4 opening horizontal bridge piece with a coat rod.  Our friends at Tennsco realized that if they make the bridge piece only 3 openings wide , customers with a smaller wall would still be able to order - thus , the Tennsco 15 Person Locker ! Those guys in Tennessee never stop thinking!

Other interesting lockers for sale include the lockmaster lockers.  Lock master lockers are provided with built in combination or key locks.  With lockmaster lockers, customers don't need to go through the bother of picking the proper lock - A Plus Warehouse does that in advance!

Of course for our extra large Rhino Locker is excellent for customers that want a locker with a 4 or 6 square foot cross section!

Safety Cabinets | How To Choose

Posted by Ed Stairman on Jan 17, 2013 2:58:00 PM

Safety CabinetsSafety CabinetsHow should a customer order safety cabinets ?  This is the question that I'll answer in this blog post.  First of all , what exactly is a safety cabinet as opposed to a storage cabinet ?

Simply put , a safety cabinet is a specific type of storage cabinet.  Storage cabinets are used to store items ( obviously ).  A safety cabinet is usually a flammable liquids cabinet , storing flammable or other hazardous chemicals.

Most all of the safety cabinets we sell meet OSHA, NIOSH and are FM approved.  The cabinet on the right is a self closing FM approved safety cabinet.  Safety cabinets are color colded so fire people understand what is happening within a fire.  Red is typically for paints while blue is for acids and green is for pesticides.  Flammable liquids cabinets all have specialty double wall doors with air insulation.

Customers need to choose between manual and self closing doors.  We always suggest self closing doors.  Self closing is a small upcharge , but can be a life saving feature.  If a fire starts in a cabinet when no workers are present , a manually closing safety would not contain the fire.  A self closing safety cabinet would close and perhaps extinguish the fire.

A Plus Warehouse distributes quality safety cabinets by Justritr , Securall, Jamco and Stronghold as well.  Feel free to call 800-209-8798 with any questions.

Sherrif CarterYour humble webmaster is responsible to create the buzz that moves heavy duty conveyor equipment.  The company has given me great lattitude in doing so.  In that spirit , I can inform y'all that I am a major fan of the Eureka television program.  I just became aware of that treasure a few months ago from Netflix.

Just look at Sherrif Carter on the right.  That is one serious dude.  When General Dynamics needs to move a positron beam splitter into the laser lab , do you really think they'd move it by hand?

The A Plus Warehouse Heavy Duty Roller Conveyor by Roach Conveyors cam handle a madssive 7,500# in a 10 foot section with individual roller capacity of 540# per roller.  This is adequate for a positron beam even without the boson field generator!

The science of a conveyor application does not require vector calculus or even finite element analysis.  In fact , conveyor science is handled perfectly by your humble sales staff here at A Plus Warehouse.  We no Phd's on staff, but that is ok. We do not need to know relativistic time dilation formulae in order to provide a kickin conveyor!

Why Get A Metal Storage Cabinet

Posted by Ed Stairman on Jan 4, 2013 11:06:00 AM

 

 

There are many reasons to order a metal storage cabinet at A PlusMetal Storage Cabinet Warehouse , and I'd like to review some of them in this blog post.  I will also describe some of the more popular storage cabinets at A Plus Warehouse as well.

Let's start off with the metal storage cabinet shown on the right.  The BigBlue Extra Heavy Duty Storage Cabinet . This amazing new cabinet is based on the ever popular BigBlue line (the line made popular not only by it's great workmanship , but also the two tone color scheme) but is constructed of 12 Gauge steel.  Customers that want to store literally one ton per shelf can do so using a BigBlue HD storage cabinet.

 

 

The image below the HD version is the traditional two tone BigBlue storage cabinet.  This family of American made product has been very popular with our customers over the years!

When looking for a metal storage cabinet , customers should consider the followingmetal storage cabinet issues..

  • Capacity
  • Assembled of KD
  • Configuration
  • Color Options
In terms of capacity , the 12 Gauge storage cabinets have the maximum rating.  Capacity declines with increasing gauge , so a 22 gauge storage cabinet will have quite a bit less capacity than a 14 Gauge BigBlue storage cabinet.  
Tennsco, Penco, Hallowell, and Lyons all offer KD ( unassembled) storage cabinets as well as set up cabinets.  If you request a quotation from your A Plus Warehouse sales person , you can easily compare total cost of KD versus assembled. KD can be less expensive - but assembly does take some labor.
Here is a list of popular configurations..
  • Storage - Full Width Shelves
  • Wardrobe - One shelf with a coat rod underneath
  • Combination - A combination of the two - half width shelves with one full width shelf and a hald width coat rod under the full width shelf
A Plus Warehouse sales people are metal storage cabinet geniuses , so please give them a call at 800-209-8798

Wall Cabinets | Get Your Back Up Off The Wall

Posted by Ed Stairman on Dec 17, 2012 9:05:00 AM

Wall Cabinets are the often ignored step sister if industrial storage cabinets. Wall Cabinets Wall cabinets are dainty little storage units measuring less than 2 feet deep and really short and narrow.  Not much fits into a wall cabinet versus the amazing capacity of a BigBlue cabinet that can be 72 inches wide x 36 unches seep and 78 inches high - with capacity over 1000 pounds per shelf.

If you look to the right you will see some of our more popular wall cabinets. Although they are small , they serve a real purpose! The wall behing a work bench is typically lost space.  Think of all the lost storage in a facility with 50 work benches! By utilizing wall cabinets , customers can store basic work area supplies worry free right at a work station without crowding the work area!

Remember that your friends at A Plus Warehouse supply wall cabinets as well as storage cabinets , so whatever the requirement , we have the source.  Wall cabinets are items used to supplement the heavy lifting done by industrial storage cabinets - but when 50 work areas are involved , the total effect of wall cabinets can no longer be ignored.

Plastic Storage Bins | Meet Aqua Lew - The New Super Hero

Each manufacturer has his own specialty , and A Plus Warehouse is very proud and pleased to carry all three lines.  Here is an overview.

Akro Mils - The grand daddy if plastic storage bins manufacturers.  To this day , people request Akro Bins without even knowing that Akro is a brand name. ( kinda the Kleenex (tm) of plastic storage bins )

Quantum Plastics - A division of (not to be confused with M&M Mars ) , Quantum produces shelf bins , stacking bins , esd bins, and a broad line of imported storage equipment as well.

Lewis Bins - Included in the Lewis Bins line are the ever popular Plexton Bins as well as some seriously heavy duty fiberglass bins.  When customers need to use an autoclave to keep plastic storage bins sanitary , Lewis Bins is a fine choice. The other 2/3 of our bins suoer hero will also do perfectly well in an autoclave.

Did you notice that autoclave sounds a bit like batcave? Curious..

An autoclave is a fancy oven that heats equipment to a level that germs are killed.  Carrie did a nice blogpost on Autoclavable plastic bins  not long ago.

The Walking Dead Need Lockers - Find Out Why

Posted by Ed Stairman on Oct 29, 2012 8:53:00 AM

Don't you wish dead people would just stay in the ground already? Jeez, they wake up hungry and don't seem to want McDonalds. What is wrong with the dead now?Walking Dead Lockers

As you can see , Rick is having a good old time with a more domesticated walker , but he really needs to consider what type of lockers the living may need to defend themselves from the very hungry dead.

Shaine is a tough hombre , so he chooses the KingCab 12 gauge heavy duty locker . This unit can hold thousands of rounds of ammo EASILY with shelf capacity over 750 pounds!

Dale is more of a tools and parts guy , so he'd probably choose a giant bin cabinet - with plenty of individual storage places. Rick would choose the Valumaster Lockers mostlt because Valumaster is the safe choice ( although he is getting riskier..)

Lori - well , she likes the Kingcab while with the Kingcab , but is quite fond of the Valumaster when with the Valumaster.  These lockers have always been friends , so I hope the triangle works itself out well.

This blog post obviously is a tribute to The Walking Dead , one of the best shows this humble blogmaster has ever seen on television. ( Right up there with Jericho , Dead Like Me , and Eureka )

Watch The Walking Dead , and order lockers from A Plus Warehouse

A Plus Warehouse is your Heavy Duty Casters source! Heavy duty casters areHeavy Duty Caster used in industry and tend to handle over 300 pounds capacity per unit.  Although A Plus Warehouse provides a great variety of medium and light duty casters , we tend to focus on the industrial end of things.

The heavy duty caster shown on the right is a 2,000 pound capacity TrioPines caster.  TrioPines is a great line , offering light duty casters all the way to giant industrial heavy duty casters - and mostly in stock!  TripPines is a brand customers have grown to count on.  They are a Korean product , so some customers are obligated to utilize other American casters A Plus Warehouse sells.

Our American Casters CAN'T be beat for quality and overall value.

Payson Casters are made in Illinois - 100 percent. Many American caster companies actually manufacture over seas - not Payson.  For American made heavy duty casters - we suggest customers request Payson casters by name.

The salespeople at A Plus Warehouse are caster geniuses , and we look forward to being of assistance!

Dock Plates | Today's Material Handling School Subject

Posted by Ed Stairman on Oct 17, 2012 8:58:00 AM

Dock Plates can be found on most any receiving and shipping dock.  Dockdock plate plates are the ramps used to bridge the gap between the dock and a truck when NON POWERED equipment is being used for loading and unloading.  So, when the driver unloads with a two wheeled hand truck he will be using a dock plate .

There are a few things to know about dock plates--

  • Height Differential - This measures the maximum height difference between the dock and truck. This is not a trivial matter - if you order a dock plate with an incorrect differential , it will not safely work
  • Material Used - Steel is more sturday ( marginally ) than Aluminum , but aluminum is lighter.  Make sure to consider the weight of the dock plate when ordering.  Consider using a hand truck to position the dock plate
  • Curbs - Some dock plates employ curbs like are found on thruck dock boards ( used for powered equipment ).  Curbs make dock plates safer , but add cost and weight.
  • Lifting chains and hoops - Dock Plates can be ordered with lifting chains or loops.  This makes moving the equipment much easier.  We suggest customers ordering steel dock plates consider hetting lifting chains - as steel dock plates are too heavy for obe person to lift

Warehouse Shelving | Where House ? Here House !

Posted by Ed Stairman on Oct 11, 2012 11:53:00 AM

A Plus Warehouse stocks the Warehouse Shelving you need! My blog postWarehouse Shelving today is a primer on shelving.  Most importantly , terms are as users define them.  Most folks consider Warehouse shelving to be old fashioned solid metal 36 or 48 inch wide shelving.  Other have a broader view of warehouse shelving

The warehouse shelving on the right is bulk rack by durham.  I consider warehouse shelving and racking to be close enough to call them the same thing.  A shelving unit is a storage unit that allows users to safely store items in an open area.  Of course we sell closed shelving to prevent parts from rolling off.

When warehouse shelving needs to be secure , units can be placed in a wire cage.  Of course A Plus Warehouse sells wire partition systems as well!

Other types of popular warehouse shelving include rivet racks, pallet racks, stacking racks, and sheet racks.  Don't forget the extra heavy duty die racks as well!

Whatever the warehouse shelving requirement you have , do not hestitate to contact A Plus Warehouse.

Wire Shelving | A Few Brands And Styles You Should Know About

Posted by Ed Stairman on Oct 1, 2012 9:03:00 AM

There are a few interesting developments in Wire Shelving that I'd like A PlusWire Shelving Warehouse customers to know about.  Most importantly , I'd like to mention that square post wire shelving like the type made by AMCO is becoming quite popular because square post shelving tends to have a greater capacity than round post wire shelving. A Plus Warehouse provides great square post wire shelving from Relius, Amco, Quantum and other great makes as well.

Other new offerings in the wire shelving arena include the addition of stainless steel wire shelving and corner shelving.  Stainless steel wire shelving can be used in a sanitary environment such as food service or production.  With our imported stainless wire shelving , it may be surprising how little extra the stainless costs over the traditional chrome shelving.

That brings up the next wire shelving change.  Back in the day , wire shelving was typically zinc coated .  Most wire shelving is now Chrome.  Customers are quite fond of our extra deep chrome wire shelving , in fact.

Most wire shelving is now imported , so it is very important to request made in USA when that is a requirement.  We provide excellent American Made shelving by Eagle Manufacturing and others as well!

Cheap Storage Cabinets | Who Has Them

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 25, 2012 11:50:00 AM

Do you want Cheap Storage Cabinets but do not want to sacrifice quality? If your answer is yesCheap Storage Cabinets , then you have found the cheap storage cabinet source! How can A Plus Warehouse offer storage cabinets at a reasonable price ? Very simple. We match the storage cabinet to the customer.  A company requiring a cabinet for storing office supplies does not need the 12 gauge KingCab storage cabinet with 1900 pound capacity per shelf.  A nice Tennsco or Penco storage cabinet works out fine for a customer with that requirement.

We also keep costs down by locating inventory nationally close to customers.  When deciding to order a storage cabinet , the wise customer looks at total cost , not just the item cost.  Freight counts , and transportation costs get high when inventory is not centrally located.  Hallowell cheap storage cabinets are an especially great line with product available in no less than 5 regional distribution centers.  Penco , Lyons, and Republic all offer multiple shipping locations as well.

The cabinet shown on the right is actually a combination cabinet , not a storage cabinet.  Combination cabinets are half storage cabinets ( full width shelves ) and half wardrobe cabinets ( which have one hat shelf and a full width coat rod )

The unit shown is a Hallowell product and is provided all welded and ready to use.  Assembling a cabinet is difficult work , so we suggest saving the effort and ordering cabinets set up.

A Plus Warehouse is your cabinets source , please download our product buyers guide - yours for the low low price of nothing!!

Also , we have produced an awesome storage cabinets video - please check it out , and perhaps link to us.

All comments are replied to promptly.

Jib Cranes | What The Heck Are They - and Why You May Need One

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 21, 2012 9:05:00 AM

Jib Cranes are essential in overhead material handling.  When a hoist is usedJib Cranes to lift any piece of equipment , that hoist must be mounted on something! Jib Cranes allow for pick up then 360 degree rotation ( or less with stops ) for placement elsewhere in the work area.  Check out the Jib Crane on the right!

As you can clearly see, a jib crane allows heavy items to be picked up off a work surface to be moved or otherwise processed.  There are a few different jin cranes to consider:

  1. Wall Mounted - Obviously these are not 360 degree rotating! If the wall can handle the load , wall mounted can be a more efficient use of space than the free standing jib crane
  2. Free Standing Jib Crane - The choice for full rotation.  Make sure to order the bolt stencil - which will show where to place the bolts
  3. Aluminum or Stainless Jin Cranes - For corrosive environments
A Plus Warehouse sells not only jib cranes , but also hoists, trollies and under the hook devices such as spreaders and lifting magnets.  We have the entire hoisting system covered!
We have created a nice hoisting equipment video - please enjoy it!

Lyon Lockers | A Well Respected Storage Equipment Brand

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 19, 2012 7:58:00 AM

Lyon Lockers are among the best manufactured lockers made in USA! LyonLyon ADA Locker has been in the business for well over 50 years producing excellent storage equipment such as storage cabinets abd steel shelving as well.

The Lyon Locker shown ojn the right is an ADA locker.  An ADA locker meets the requirements under the Americans With Disabilities law.  Most locker rooms should have at least one ADA locker in order to be in compliance with the law.  Lyon makes it easy!

Lyon Lockers have come a long way - even since I was a lad! Back in the late 1960s , Lyon produced removable locker boxes that locked onto heavy duty shelving.  The YMCA I used to go to would provide a little Lyon metal bin in which I'd put my clothing , and a service person would lock the box into a shelving unit!

Lyon still makes the old fashioned locker box shelving arrrangement , but I think it is mostly for nostalgia.  Modern Lyon Lockers are just like corridor lockers made by Penco , Hallowell, Republic, Edsal, and Tennsco.  Of course that is not an exhaustive list of companies that make great lockers - but it is enough of a list to remind customers that Lyon Lockers are the real deal.

Give us a call to talk lockers - it is what we live for!

The Steel Cabinet Story | Find Out All About Steel Cabinets

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 18, 2012 9:24:00 AM

Any plant you may visit will employ at least one steel cabinet , and at somesteel cabinets point , most industrial buyers need to order steel cabinets.  This blog post will describe steel cabinets and further inform the buyer what cabinets may be appropriate for use.

The Bigblue cabinet shown on the right is quite popular due to it's heavy duty construction , and two color process.  Most steel cabinets on the market are one color - typically gray.

Steel cabinets can be provided all welded ( or otherwide set up ) or KD ( unassembled) .  Lighter duty cabinets tend to be the ones that are available KD.  Some A Plus Warehouse vendors that offer KD steel cabinets include Lyons, Penco,Edsal and Tennsco.  Heavier duty cabinets are exclusively assembled - such as the BigBlue or 12 GA KingCab line.

Manufacturing plants tend to go with a heavier duty assembled steel cabinet , but KD steel cabinets are always high quality when purchased through A Plus Warehouse.  All of the previously mentioned vendors produce excellent products including kd steel cabinets.

There are THREE types of steel cabinets to mention - and here they are...

  1. Storage Cabinets : These have several ( usually 5 ) full width shelves.  Storage cabinets are used for storing equipment and supplies.  Customers should consider ordering plastic bins for their storage cabinets for more efficient product storage
  2. Wardrobe cabinets : These have just One full width shelf - with a coat rod underneath it.  As the name suggests , wardrobe cabinets are used for storing coaths , hats , umbrellas , etc.  Wardrobe cabinets are provided so that employees can keep their wet coats out of their lockers
  3. Combination Cabinets : Are half storage and half wardrobe.  All shelves except the hat shelf are half width - allowing for half of the cabinet to hang coats and the other half to store products.
A soecialized steel cabinet would be the stainless steel cabinet.  Stainless steel cabinets look real sharp , but tend to be expensive.  We have the premium KingCab 12 GA line as well as an economy line that typically costs less than 30% the price of a similarly sized KingCab.  Stainless steel cabinets are used in sanitary environments , such as food service and manufacturing.

Get Industrious | Learn about Industrial Shelving

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 14, 2012 9:10:00 AM

Industrial Shelving is the type of shelving one finds in heavy industry.Industrial Shelving  Companies using industrial shelving buy these items from industrial distributors , such as A Plus Warehouse.  Industrial Shelving is not the thirty five dollar shelving readily available for sale at any warehouse store.  That type of shelving is 'consumer' product.

The Industrial shelving shown on the right is our Krazy Kap shelving.  These items have a capacity up to 1775 pounds per shelf! Additionally , they can be made in any number of colors.

What makes shelving ' industrial shelving ' is simply the capacity. Once capacity exceeds 700 pounds per shelf , A Plus Warehouse considers the shelving 'industrial' - There is no absolute industrial standard on the term , however.

In this post , I'd like to review some of our more popular industrial shelving items.  

BoltlessBoltless Shelving shelving also known as river rack tends to be heavy duty , and unlike typical industrial shelving , can be as wide as 10 feet! ( traditional shelving tops out at 4 feet wide ) - The picture on the right is voltless shelving.  Look closely at the shelving . Why do you suppose it si known as boltless? Simplr -- because these assemble without nits and bolts! The parts have integral rivets that slide into the uprights.  Assembly is done with a simple rubber mallet!  Many great vendors produce rivet shelving.  These vendors include Hallowell, Lyons, Penco, Scotland Rack, Triboro, Edsal, Safco and others as well.  The dealer you buy from should be able to ship boltless shelving from stock. ( Did I mention A Plus Warehouse does ? )

 

 

 

 

Another type of industrial shelving is the Durham wide span shelving. Wide span shelving looks almost the same as pallet racks , and is only different in that it is designed for hand loadingDurham Bulk Rack rather than forklift loading. When considering this type of shelving , understand that we offer starters and adders.  An adder has only one upright , and shares an upright with a different unit.  Ordering adders saves money!  Durham has been making this fine bulk rack ever since the design was purchased from Frick Gallagher over five years ago.  Frick Gallagher was a well respected name , and Durham nicely integrated this and other Frick items into their mix.  Of course A Plus Warehouse is a full line Durham Manufacturing dealer! ( Duh)

 

 

 

In discussing industrial shelving, it would be wrong to leave out Hallowell List Industries! Hallowell offers a wide variety of industrial shelving.  I'd like to Highlight the H Post Extra Heavy Duty Shelving , however.Hallowell Extra Heavy Duty Shelving

The H style post employed makes for amazing capacity! Hallowell has convinced 18 GA shelving to act like 14 Gauge shelving.  Truely , H Post shelving is an exciting new take on industrial shelving!

Pallet Racks | What They Are and how to order them

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 13, 2012 9:05:00 AM

Pallet racks are well understood in industry , but for those that are not awarePallet Racks of the term , Pallet rack is the type of indutrial shelving used by warehouse clubs to store full pallets of goods.  Pallet rack is loaded by forklift as opposed to warehouse rack or warehouse shelving that can be hand loaded.

The pallet rack shown on the right is a typical arrangement with two uprights and 4 beams.  A typical depth for pallet rack uprights is 42 inches and a typical length for beams is 96 inches.  Of course there are multiple sizes and capacities available.

There are a few different styles of pallet racks to review, and here they are - in no particular order.

  1. Tear Drop Pallet Racks - The most common pallet rack type.  These roll formed units are found everywhere.  Occasionally , they are called 'old style Interlake' - and many vendors are compatibile
  2. Keystone - Another style of racks that are NOT compatibile with tear drop.  Keyston is produced by Wireway Husky and other fine rack manufacturers.
  3. Structural Pallet Racks - These are made from structural steel and are bolted together.  How about an upright capacity of 52,000 pounds per upright? HEAVY industry counts on us for structural pallet racks.  It is worth noting that most competitors do not show pricing for structural - we do!!
  4. Pre-Configured rack - One model number gets you the whole SHEBANG! Why remake the wheel? Simply order one model number and get a full rack!
  5. Pallet racks with rack guards - Rack guard prevent items from falling off racks.  We also sell post protectors to protect posts from forklift strikes.

Berms | Why you need them for spill control

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 10, 2012 9:08:00 AM

Spilling hazardous chemicals can be bad for the environment , and even worse for your income statement! Sorbents are great for spills on the ground , and dikes or pads are fine for spills on water.   What should be sone for spillsThrow N Go Berm that have not happened but could predicably happen? Berms are just what you need 

Consider the fuel truck shown on the left. When a worker starts filling or emptying the truck , it is always possible that there will be a leak.  Tith the truck sitting on a Berg Throw N Go Berm , none of the potential spill will reach the environment! Throw N Go Berms as so named because you throw them down and go away! Any fluid that falls into the berm will start pushing up the walls.  This berm enpties easily with 3/4 inch drains.

No one likes dirty air and dirty water - we all need to live on this astonomical pebble , so - let's pull it together and utilize berms when a significant leak is conceivable.  The Thow N Go Berms are avaialble in Deser Tan , Black and even Green.  The US Military uses berms regularly.

Fuel Bladders | Who Needs Them and Why

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 7, 2012 9:17:00 AM

How does the US Army keep their vehicles fueld in the field of combat ? ThisFuel Bladder is an important question.  An army marches on food and water , but it drives and flies on fuel! Fuel Bladders are pillow shaped contraptions that are very easy to deploy , inexpensive to use and purchase , and most importantly can be deployed anywhere ( including deserts ). These beauties can hold up to twenty thousand gallons of fuel! The need for fuel can not be questioned,  The only thing to decide is how and where to fuel the operation's vehicles.

Construction sites and remote operations can't send workers to the local station for a few gallons.  Either customers need to build free standing tanks,or use fuel bladders.  The quickest solution is a fuel bladder , and quick plus cheap is usually a winning proposition!

A Plus Warehouse now distributes the Berg line of spill containment devices and also their water bladders and fuel bladders.  

In terms of water bladders , we can mark there is no difference between a bladder for potable water vs non-potable or so called 'gray' water.  For no charge , A Plus Warehouse can label the bladder accordingly , just let your sales person know when you order.

If you want information , please click on the button below.

Also , please enjoy the video that shows how easy it is to deploy even a large fuel bladder!

Storage Lockers | What they are and who uses them

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 6, 2012 2:19:00 PM

Storage Lockers are not the same as standard lockers.  Storage lockers arestorage lockers used for bulk storage and tend to look like mini cages.  One can consider storage lockers to be mini storage rooms.

When ordering storage lockers , please be aware that standard storage lockers do not include ceiling panels or back panels.  Customers tend to mount storage lockers to walls and have them close to the height of their ceiling.  With a wall and ceiling in place , the additional panels are typically a waste of money.

A Plus Warehouse makes it very easy if you need panels.  We show both ceiling and back panels on our website along with the product itself.  The image shown in a scombination of a single tier starter and a double tier adder.  An adder unit shares a side panel - again saving you money!

The storage locker shown on the right is a Hallowell storage locker , and that line does quite well.  Not only is the storage locker an attractive finish , but they are also in stock nationwide - at a great price point.  If you want one or one hundred units , count on A Plus Warehouse for the attention you deserve.

Aluminum Gantry Crane | Get yours at A Plus Warehouse

Posted by Ed Stairman on Sep 5, 2012 7:10:00 AM

An Aluminum Gantry Crane is used should be used for high capacity overhead lifting in severalAluminum Gantry Crane different applications that favor aluminum vs steel.  An aluminum gantry crane will weigh less than a steel crane simply because aluminum is a lighter metal.  This makes the aluminum option a great choice when the weight of the unit counts- an example of this would be repetative field assembly and transportation - IE: a jobsite crane.

Aluminum is also different in terms of electrical condictivity.  In some cases involving high voltage, an aluminum gantry crane may also be a GREAT idea.

When ordering gantry cranes it is important to know what you are getting.  The unit shown on the right is a basic aluminum gantry crane with a trolley and a hoist.  The trolley and hoist are not included with a gantry as standard.  The smartest thing to do is order all three components from the same dealer. ( A Plus Warehouse - of course )  The reason for consolidating the order is that not all parts are compatibile! The I beam of a crane needs a trolley of certain width and height! When you order from A Plus Warehouse , all three items will work in consort!

For customers that require height adjustment , a ratchet kit is available for short change.  Customers using the product outdoors may want to invest in pneumatic casters.  Again , order the special casters from A Plus Warehouse , as casters have different plate sizes , and the plate size must fit the crane legs!

Lockers | The best place to store freshmen

Posted by Ed Stairman on Aug 31, 2012 9:35:00 AM

With school starting , I thought it would be a good idea to have some lockersLockers fun! What crazy stuff can be done with the lockers we sell here at A Plus Warehouse ? The following is a partial list.  Please note : this is humor - we are not suggesting you actually do these things!

  1. Control your freshmen ! A Rhino heavy duty locker is up to 24 w x 36 in deep. Plenty of room to store a frehman.  When imprisoning people , consider vented lockers.  Even frehmen deserve to breathe!
  2. Learn about newtonian mechanics - drop a locker from the top of your school to the ground.  Notice that the locker lands on Mr. Odwallow at the same time the rock lands on him.  Gravity is constant even though mass is different - hmmm.
  3. As part of thing #2 - measure the time it takes for the locker to hit Mr Odwallow.  d=1/2gt^2 - this will give you the height of the building! Alternatively...
  4. The ratio of the buildings, height to shadow is identical to the lockers height to shadow ration - another way to tell the building's height
Seriously though , the best thing to do with lockers is to buy all you want of them from A Plus Warehouse - then misplace them and buy more - then repeat the process regularly.

Plastic Storage Bins | The Three Styles You Need To Know About

Posted by Ed Stairman on Aug 29, 2012 9:37:00 AM

Plastic Storage Bins are found in every warehouse or factory you could every visit.  Customers of all stripes require plastic storage bins , but some do not know the categories of product available.  This blog post exists to simplify ordering plastic storage bins by showing the various categories and describing them.

Lets start with stacking bins.  

Stacking bins stack onto one another and do not nest.  Stackable bins can typically be hooked onto louvered panels.  Pallet sized bins are not intended for hook on application.

Stacking Bins

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next category is shelf bins.

Shelf bins can nest but do not stack on one another.  Shelf bins are so named because they are deployed on steel shelving units , and have lips on the back that allow the units to tip and be held in place by an upper shelf.  Shelf bins have always been 4 inches high , but they are now also available in 6 inch height! The extra 2 inches allows for less wasted space between shelves.  Customers should consider ordering pre configured bin shelving with bin shelves includedshelf bin

 

 

 

 

 

 The final type of plastic storage bins I'd like to mention is the see through bin.  These bins are autoclavable to 250 degrees. Incidentally , we have a separate blog post about autoclavable bins.

See through bins are very popular with hospitals and pharmaceutical companies.  With see through bins , it is clear what each bin stores.  Both Quantum Plastics and Akro Mils manufacture see through bins.  Unlike standard stacking bins , see through bins can be provided with lids.See Through Bins

What Makes Industrial Shelving Industrial Shelving

Posted by Ed Stairman on Aug 24, 2012 9:24:00 AM

Folks talk about industrial shelving quite a bit , but what is it ?  As with any term , the definitionIndustrial Shelving is produced by the customer buying the equipment! Some would group pallet racks and bulk shelving into the category of industrial shelving , as these are items used for industrial strength storage.  The A Plus Warehouse definition is that an industrial shelving unit is a traditional shelving unit typically 48 inches wide or less and 36 inches deep or less with a capacity over 500 pounds per shelf.

A contrast to industrial shelving would be commercial shelving or consumer shelving.  Back 30 years ago , it was very easy to determine what industrial shelvinf was - you'd just need to look at the gauge of the shelf.  An 18 gauge shelf was industrial a 20 gauge was commercial and a 22 gauge was consumer.  Very simple!  

However , the combination of commodity inflation , and robotic manufacturing changed that! 

Consider a steel I beam for a moment.  Clearly , the I Beam can handle much more load than f flat sheet of metal.  Shelving manufacturers came up with the smart idea to take thinner ( less expensive ) metal and bend the metal into channels and weld back to the metal.  The result is 22 gause shelves that have the capacity of old fashioned 18 gauge shelves!

The reason robotics needed to catch up to manufacturing is simply because multiple bends and welding would be labor intensive , costing more than the savings in metal.  Now that machines can be programmed , production lines can flow!

A Plus Warehouse provides industrial shelving by great suppliers such as Hallowell, Penco, Republic, Lyons, Parent,Stronghold,Pucel, and Edsal.

Let our staff lay out the industrial shelving you require.  With starters and adders , we can save you real cash money!

Why Plastic Bins are so popular

Posted by Ed Stairman on Aug 23, 2012 8:53:00 AM

Plastic Bins are used in every warehouse and office.  Why do so many customers utilize plastic bins by A Plus Warehouse?Pallet Sized plastic Bins

The answer is peoples endless struugle with entropy.  Entropy states that nature tends towards the maximum level of disorder possibile.  Entropy is not compatibile with functioning business - as a business needs to be highly organized to succeed.  Plastic bins used in conjunction with industrial shelving will help organize any office - making the operation more efficient and effective as well.  How well can an office run when workers can't find required supplies?

Plastic bins conver a wide range , and I wanted to mention some of the various types of plastic bins A Plus Warehouse offers.

  • Rack Bins - The plastic bins shown on the right are rack bins - perfectly sized bins for bulk storage on pallet racks
  • Akro Bins - Akro is actually a popular bin manufacturer - folks use 'Akro' for bin in the same way that folks can use 'Kleenex' for tissue.  Both are trademarks and are products made by specific companies. A traditional 'Akrobin' is a stackable bin , but Akro makes Soooo many other styles as well!
  • Shelf Bin - A bin that works perfectly with shelving. Bin Shelving These bins nest but do not stack.  Consider ordering pre configured bin shelving for convenience.
  • Hook On Bin - Bins that are used in conjunction with louvered panels.  These bins hook onto the panels.  Hook ons are typically stackable as well , and are the bins you may find in bin cabinets.
  • Straight Wall Containers - These look a bit like milk crates an may have solid or vented sides and bottoms. SWC bins are great for warehouse storage
  • See through bins - Pharmaceutical companies and hospitals love these! Akro and Quantum both make autoclavable see sthrough bins!

Why You Need Locker Room Benches

Posted by Ed Stairman on Aug 22, 2012 9:20:00 AM

When people use lockers they need some where to sit to change.  Customers should not forgetlocker room benches locker room benches !  A Plus Warehouse offers a variety of quality locker room benches in a few configurations.  I'd like to review some of the locker room benches we offer - and when to use them.

  1. Traditional Locker room benches - The locker room bench on the right is a traditional metal leg unit. This is a permanent installation ( the legs must be bolted to the floor)
  2. Free Standing Units - Same seat surface as the treaditional version , but with stainless steel trapezoidal shaped legs.  Since the leg base is deeper than the seat - the legs do not need to be bolted to the floor.
  3. Plastic units - great in very wet environments
  4. Stainless steel - also great in wet environments or sanitary environments like food production plants
  5. Heavy duty locker benches -These units with cast iron legs have a much more industrial feel.  For customers ordering heavy duty lockers - like the KingCab 12 gauge lockers - HD locker benches may make sense.
Consolidation purchases to fewer purchase always makes sense , so order the locker bench from your locker dealer!  Did I yet mention that we are locker experts? Well.... We are!

Order Pallet Rack Guards for safety

Posted by Ed Stairman on Aug 20, 2012 11:29:00 AM

It is well known that A Plus Ware

house does a great job selling Pallet Racks in both tear drop , keystone and structural to our valued customers.  What some customers don't knowpallet racks



is that we also provide pallet rack guards.  We also sell pallet rack guard rails , but do not confuse the two.  The function of the rack guard is to keep your items on the shelf , and prevent the items from falling off.  Consider the loss of valuable stock through damage , and also consider how people can be injured by falling stock.  Rack guards are made for our tear drop pallet racks and are available flush to the rack or with a 4 or 6 inch projection as required.  If you are looking for a turnkey stsrem , and don't want the hassle of matching guards to uprights,beams and decks - consider the preconfigured pallet rack units with wire deck and pallet rack guards.

Pallet racking is not so hard to understand , and A Plus Warehouseis always ready to help when customers need a hand.  There is nothing to panic over.  We just need to know the capacity per upright and the capacity per level.  From there we discuss if you want decking or guards of any sort , and then you are done!  When we have you situated with your new pallet racking system , remember we sell warehouse rolling ladders .  People cant reach 12 feet high , so most pallet rack users also take advantage of our access ladders as well. 

In purchasing pallet racks do not get intimidated by terminology.  Here are some things you should know.  First of all , most pallet rack is roll formed tear drop.  There is a well respected brand of racks known as Interlake.  This fine brand is the 'Kleenex' of pallet racks.  A Kleenex is a specific well respected tissue producer in the same way Interlake is a respected pallet rack manufacturer.  If you want genuine Interlake , we can arrange that , and if you are looking for old style equibalent , we accomodate that as well.  Keystone is another type with a different looking upright.

The heaviest duty pallet rack is structural pallet rack , and we are one of the very few dealers that show structural pallet racks online.  Our thinking is that if our customers need extra heavy duty , why shouldn't we spemd the time and effort to show them?  This customer focus has always served us well.

We are your right source right now , and look forward to earning your business.For more information please click the link below Also if you are interested in Pallet Racks you may also like our What Constitutes Warehouse Racks And Where To Get Them blog post.

A Plus Warehouse is industrial casters

Posted by Ed Stairman on Aug 17, 2012 11:30:00 AM

Casters are a specialty as A Plus Warehouse , and we specialize in industrial casters.Industrial Casters  The difference between industrial casters and consumer casters is mostly design and capacity.  If you need a set of stem casters for your office chair , you probably want consumer casters that are readily available at office supply super stores.  However , if you want casters to put under your 2000 pound capacity dolly , then A Plus Warehouse is the place to go!Dual Wheel

We provide heavy duty plaste casters by Triopines, Albion, Fairbanks, Payson and Hamilton as well.  For tow line operations , Hamilton provides tapered bearing casters.  We offer the entire line of Hamilton when it comes to precision bearing casters.    When looking at casters , you want to consider not only the capacity , but also the surface you are rolling the casters on.  A concrete floor can probably handle a semi steel wheel with no problems.  A hardwood floor nay be damaged by a steel caster.  Hardwood floor applications lend themselves to polyurethane or phenolic caster wheels.

Our sales people are always available to help in determining the best wheel for your application.  Another concern would be brakes.  Perhaps you'd like either swivel or motion brakes.  We can provide either for a minimal chargein most cases.  Swivel lock casters are handy as they allow you to lock down the swivel machanism making your casters work like rigid mount when needed.  This proves handy is you want to roll your cart in a straight line.

When ordering casters , please let us know if you want your casters made in USA. Our casters that are made in Korea , China , and other countries certainly have very high quality at excellent prices - but some customers require components made in USA.  Payson has a line exclusively made here that any government entity can order.  Just let us know , and we will quote made in USA casters and not imports.  That being said , imports do offer a great value , and have a high level of product quality.

A Plus Warehouse is your right choice right now for casters and we look forward to being of assistance. If you would like to learn more about our casters click the link below. Also check out our Industrial Casters are NOT the Casters You Put on Home Furniture! blog post.

Storage Bins/ What does Autoclavable mean???

Posted by Carrie Stairman on Aug 9, 2012 10:00:00 AM

So A Plus Warehouse says that our storage bins are autoclavable. But then customers ask what exactly does that mean?

Well customers believe or not- this is a very common question.autoclave

Something that is autoclavable means that it can withstand the heat of an Autoclave.Naturally this leads into the second question what is an AUTOCLAVE??!!?!! To put in in the simplest of terms- the autoclave sanitizes stuff! Pretty much anything. But in this particular case that thing is storage bins. The picture to the right shows an autoclave.

Autoclavable storage bins don't melt at the Autoclave temperature - which can be up to 250 degrees F !

Now that we have that covered, lets move on to our fantastic storage bins. They are GREAT because they are...

  • High Capacity
  • Low Price
  • Ever Lasting
  • AND BEST OF ALL AUTOCLAVABLE

Now why A Plus Warehouse? Well simply because we are the best distributor around. When you buy a product from A Plus Warehouse you know that you are getting a good quality product at an inexpensive price.  Our sales people are also very knowlegable and always ready to help.

It's not that easy being green- the storage cabinets edition

Posted by Carrie Stairman on Aug 8, 2012 11:31:00 AM

Green Monster Storage Cabinets are interesting products here at A Plus Warehouse. They are heavy duty with a 1200 pound shelf capacity and a 250 pound capacity per drawer. Drawers come in black and white. Since the color of these storage cabinets are so peculiar I decided to write a song about them.

This song inspired by Kermit the frog and the Green Monster Storage Cabinets....

It's not that easy being green;Kermit the Frog

Having to spend each day as a Green Monster Storage Cabinet

When I think it would be nicer being,gray or blue or beige

or something much more normal like that.

It's not easy being green.

It seems that people think its strange to buy such a thing.

And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're

not as well-known as the BigBle Storage Cabinets

or the KingCab Cabinets

But green's the color of me

And Green can be cool and Heavy Duty likeGreen Cabinet

And green can be all welded, have a high capacity

and come with white and black drawers

When green is all there is to be

It could make you wonder why not gray, but why wounder why?

Wonder, I am green and am unique, it's beautiful.

And I think I want to be a Green Monster Storage Cabinet

Lockers - Learn the jargon

Posted by Ed Stairman on Aug 6, 2012 3:00:00 PM

Lockers should not be hard to order , yet dealers and manufacturers can sometimes make a lockers order unreasonably confusing.  For this reason , A Plus Warehouse is publishing the inside book of locker related jargon.  Once you know these terms , you will understand lockers quite well.

Here is the list of locker terms and concepts:lockers

(1) Locker Column - A Locker column is one vertical set of openings.  A double tier locker is a single column with a top and bittom opening.  A triple tier lockers is the same thing with a middle opening

(2) Openings - For the most part , the number of openings is the number of doors.  There is one exception to this , however.  The two person book locker has two opposing doors and 2 book doors above.  This is considered one column of two openings.  The book locker openings do not count as openings.  For fancy lockers , customers should count columns and not openings.

(3) Modules - Most lockers are produced single column wide and three column wide to save money on the side panels.  A module of lockers is a group of lockers three columns wide.  A 5 tier locker 3 columns wide would be a module of 15 doors.

(4) Legs - Most lockers include legs built in.  Tennsco produces some lockers standard without legs as does Pucel as well.  Many vendors can produce lockers without legs for an additional charge.

(5) Assembly - Assembling lockers is not easy.  It costs about 25% to assemble lockers , and the price is almost universally worth it! Penco runs specials time to time for free assembly on their Vanguard line.  Penco Vanguard lockers are quite high in quality and are certainly a 'top shelf' locker

(6) Buying season - it is best to order lockers between October and April.  In these months , manufacturers recover from the summer rush of schools getting outfitted before students come back

The above is not an exhaustive list of terms in the lockers business - but it is certainly a start.  I suggest you download our lockers buyers guide , and give our sales department a call! We are here to help with your locker requirements.

Happy Olympics day everyone! Go U.S.A!

Do you know where the Olympic athletes put their stuff. Well this might be predictable because the title says it all. In Pallet Racks!

So for those of you sad people that do not know what pallet racks are....

pallet racks are where you store bulky equipment. So whatever equipment you might need for the olympics should be stored in there.Olympics

So reader are you excited for the olympic games? Plus London is a nice place to have the olymipcs but I am not sure if they can measure up to the opening of the Beijing Olympics in 2008. I am still wondering how they could all keep in sync with those drums. It was amazing.

Anyway I am very excited about the olympics. Everybody should watch it- even if just a little bit. It is fun to watch and you can feel that American pride too!  If you don't care about the olympics at least watch one event like track, swimming, or gymnastics. It will be worth your while.

We want YOU to be safe -Get Safety Cabinets

Posted by Carrie Stairman on Jul 26, 2012 11:30:00 AM

Here at A Plus Warehouse, safety is always our #1 priority.

If you happen to be a Chemist, you know how dangerous some chemicals can be. Some are highly safety cabinetflamable. You need a safe place to store them. Safety Cabinets are the safest place to put these flamable liquids. When getting Safety Cabinets we strongly suggest getting the self closing feature. If a fire does start, this feature will close the cabinets so that the fire will smother instead of expand. Just remember that if you do- which we HIGHLY suggest- get the self closing safety cabinet do not have any obstruction that would keep the door from closing!  If you do not get the self closing feature it can be somewhat annoying and more importantly dangerous. You will need to close it yourself and waste vital minutes. You do not want that to happen.

 Safety Cabinets do cost more than regular cabinets- but if you work near chemicals it is worth it. So the question is what is worth more, your life or a couple extra dollars? We suggest Safety Cabinets- not because they are more expensive but we truely do care about you. We do not want any of our customers getting hurt now do we!  Our Safety Cabinets are made from trusted names such as Jamco, Penco,Edsal,and Lyon.

Jane thought about this long and hard.Do you know what this mudroom needs? A Mudroom Locker! With a mudroom Locker Jane can put all of her snowy stuff in there and not need to worry.

Any locker can make a mudroom locker. There is no specific size, shape,and color it must be. It is all up to you. Gee if you want you could even have an pink ocker!( I dont know who would want a pink mudroom locker-but hey there must be someone out there. There is a picture of our kid locker on the right and YES it is pink! Even this could be used in a mudroom.)

Carrie's Crazy Friday's- This weeks topic :mini lockers

Posted by Carrie Stairman on Jul 20, 2012 4:45:00 PM

Another Friday. Yay!!! I hope everyone had a great week! Im so excited in general looking foward to a nice weekend.

My younger sister has visiting day at her camp tommorow so I will be going up to see her. Her camp also happens to be a college campus for fall, winter and spring and a camp during summer. Then I thought... hey since it is a college it probably has Mini Lockers right? Ok.... maybe not they are college kids after all. They would probably be offended to have mini lockers on campus.4 o clock

Well anyway back to the visit. I am very excited to see her. It will be much fun even though I need to wake up at 4:00 in the morning! I hate waking up SOOO early. Even when it is 8:00 I think it is to early so can you imagine 4:00. I just need to remind myself to get up and give my self a motivational speach. You can do this, you can get out of bed. I know you can!

I can only hope that by the time I get to her camp I wont be so tired that I will be bad company. I guess my plan is to just go to bed early tonight.

Well what does any of that have to do with Mini Lockers? I couldnt tell ya! It is Carrie's Crazy Friday's so just give me a brake. If you want serious information about lockers click below. I promise there will be no random stories of my life.
