Maximize Your Storage Capabilities With a Warehouse Catwalk System
Successful businesses tend to expand, and your warehouse needs to be able to follow suit. However, expanding your warehouse can be time-consuming, expensive, and disruptive to your warehouse operations. That’s why you need to integrate a warehouse solution that increases storage capacity without sacrificing performance.
At Southwest Warehouse Solutions, we provide catwalk systems that are designed to fit your existing warehouse space. If you already have rack-supported or freestanding mezzanines installed, these elevated walkways provide safe and efficient support that increases the flow of products within your warehouse. Our steel catwalk systems provide safe access to archive storage, small parts storage, and individual item picking. They can also be used in tandem with your existing warehouse conveyor systems to optimize the order-picking process, so you can get products from point A to point B faster and safer.
We design and install our catwalk systems using modular construction so that they can provide utility no matter what changes you make down the road. By integrating catwalk decking into your existing warehouse storage system, you can significantly increase your storage capacity and maximize your picking operation.
Benefits of Installing a Warehouse Catwalk System
Installing a warehouse catwalk system is the perfect choice for enhancing your warehouse storage. By taking advantage of previously unused overhead space, you can:
Maximize Storage Capabilities
Installing a catwalk in your warehouse allows you to take a floor-to-ceiling approach to material handling and warehousing. Most warehouses don’t take advantage of empty vertical space. By integrating a catwalk system, you can scale your warehouse upward, literally. Depending on your warehouse’s layout and existing storage structure, these elevated walkways can double your storage capabilities. This allows you to move more products and improve your revenue stream.
Improve Accessibility for Order Picking
Catwalks are an essential component of streamlined, accessible order picking. Their narrow access aisles allow you to swiftly navigate between rack systems and pick goods from either side of the walkway. This level of access is critical for fast, efficient order picking. Catwalks also allow you to reduce the footprint of your picking area—by building upward, you can store more related products in one place.
Achieve Safer Warehouse Navigation
The warehouse floor can be dangerous. Heavy machinery like forklifts and vertical order pickers can make it difficult for employees to go from point A to point B safely. With a catwalk system, employees can go above and beyond the warehouse floor, avoiding dangerous machinery and arriving at their intended destination swiftly. In addition, our catwalk systems are designed to keep your employees fully protected as they move through the rafters—we install handrails and self-closing gates to ensure you maintain OSHA standards.
