One of the most important aspects of managing a warehouse is making sure your employees and products are safe at all times. To do this, you’ll need to use effective design and other means, such as wire caging. Wire caging is a practical solution to many security and safety issues in your facility – here are four potential ways you can implement it effectively.
1. Outdoor Security
We often talk about safety and security inside your main facility building, but the fact is that a lot of warehouses do have some operations outdoors as well. Some store large tools and hazardous materials outside, while others have dumpsters that may need to be secured from unwanted critters. In these situations, wire caging can act as a great security solution to keep all of your outside items and processes safe from uninvited guests.
2. Restricted Item Storage
Some of the items you produce may need to be stored in a locked cage when not in use. This is especially true in the pharmaceutical industry, where federal regulations dictate specific guidelines for security storage and impose penalties for those not in compliance. A wire cage can fulfill these guidelines and provide a secure zone for your restricted items within your facility.
3. Personal Storage
Your employees may need to store some of their own personal items while on the clock to ensure their own safety and promote productivity. If you don’t have the space for personal storage lockers, an area of your facility partitioned off with wire cages can give you a secure space for employees to store their personal items.
4. Increasing Employee Safety
There are many ways to use wire caging to promote employee safety. By looking at your overall processes, you can identify key areas where a wire cage can increase safety. For example, a wire cage partition can be installed along the sides of your mezzanines to prevent injury. Also, wire caging is a great way to protect your critical infrastructure. If your company relies on technology, placing your server room in a wire partition will keep your computer systems safe and allow air to flow and keep these machines running cool.
