Or in your business, is work held up as your staff search for vital documents or stock items? If so, you know how frustrating it can be when you don't have a really effective storage system in place. Fortunately, with the use of racking, this problem is one that you can easily solve.

Both home and business owners face problems with storage, of being able to easily locate and use the items we need in everyday life. The amount of storage we need can seem overwhelming at times. However it needs to be handled as delays can cause frustration and in business can result in dissatisfied customers and frustrated employees.

By keeping everything from documents to stationary supplies to spare parts to finished products each in their own dedicated storage areas, you're going a long way towards setting up and efficient system.

The smooth running of your home requires access to the right items at the right time. And as a business owner, one of the essential tasks of management is that of organsiation which includes the storage of everything from documents to spare parts to raw materials to finished products.

This is especially true if your business has a warehouse or other major storage facility. The fact is that effective organisation brings efficiency and safety to any operation and one of the key ways to store goods is by using racking.

Racking essentially refers to shelving, the open storage of items so that they're easily accessible. The easiest way to acquire racking is by investing in prefabricated units that you assemble on site. They have a number of desirable features.

Prefabricated racking units are easy to assemble; they're delivered as a flat pack and you just need a mallet to knock it together. The attractive powder finish means they're durable and easy to keep clean.

The rack frames are constructed from steel and sturdy enough to withstand the heavy loads of industrial use: each of the three or four shelves is formed from chipboard and can typically take up to 200 kilogrammes UDL (Uniform Distributed Load) in weight, and plastic feet ensure a firm grip to the floor.

Depending on your type of business, you may require heavy duty racking or units with wide shelf racks. You can get heavy duty units able to handle up to 300 kilogrammes. This industrial quality heavy duty shelving can take anything you can throw at it. Also available is extra wide heavy duty shelving for those requiring extra space.

The shelves are adjustable allowing you to set up your racking to suit your individual needs. It's also easy to expand your storage setup. You can join the bays together to form a run of shelving.

Once the sole preserve of businesses, nowadays you can get storage racks in a variety of stylish designs and finishes for domestic use. You can use them in your kitchen or bathroom, in fact any room where you require stylish and effective storage. One neat use is in your children's rooms to store all their toys and other items.

And of course they're perfect for your garage or workshop allowing you to store all your tools, accessories, spare parts and things like gardening equipment, not to mention bulky objects from your home which are no longer in use.

Other than bringing efficiency to your home and business, racking also makes things safer. After all, there'll be no more objects lying around to be tripped over. And potentially dangerous items such as chemicals and sharp tools can be stored in a secure location out of reach of children. Everything is in its right place. Racking units are economical too; when you check the prices, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
