Benefits of Buying Metal Bulk Containers

Industrial metal storage containers are an increasingly popular option in warehousing and material handling operations. Metal and aluminum storage containers offer many advantages over other traditional solutions, including enhanced strength and durability and improved ergonomics and hygiene. Industrial metal bins are easy to clean and maintain and are completely reusable and recyclable.

These advantages can have a big-time impact on various areas of your operation. The additional longevity provided by a metal container can help to lower your material handling equipment costs — you won't need to replace them as frequently. The enhanced ergonomics can promote safer handling practices and reduce the likelihood of injuries. Your employees will miss fewer days of work and you won't experience nearly as many expensive workers' compensation claims. The improved sanitation provided by industrial metal storage bins can promote more hygienic material handling practices and limit the risk of OSHA violations.

In a time where there is a constant demand for organizations to be good stewards of the environment, it's comforting to know that using metal containers can help your company leave a smaller environmental footprint. Recyclable metal and steel bins and boxes result in less waste and scrap that would otherwise end up in landfills. And because there are fewer cleaning and maintenance requirements, you will reap the benefits in the form of lower operating costs.

Why Choose Metal Over Other Materials?

While containers made from wood or plastic have their place in a material handling environment, industrial metal storage boxes and bins offer some unique advantages. Unlike wood, a metal container will not rot or create splinters that can damage goods or injure your employees. Although there are many sturdy plastic options available, plastic simply cannot replicate the strength and durability of steel or even aluminum. If the security of your goods is a concern, steel bulk containers can provide an impenetrable barrier that will protect whatever you store inside them.

Typical Applications for Our Industrial Metal Storage Containers

You can use aluminum and steel bulk containers from for a wide range of applications. For example, our metal wall containers are an excellent choice in facilities where there is little available floor space except for along walls. They will provide a permanent storage solution that enables you to stack the containers for increased storage capacity. Our collapsible aluminum containers can make sense in a warehouse operation that frequently changes the types of products it carries, or to accommodate shifts in volumes at different times of the year.

If your organization has special storage or warehousing requirements that are beyond the scope of "standard" bulk metal containers, then our custom containers can provide the ideal solution. We will work closely with you and your team to develop a product design — whether it means altering an existing offering or creating a new item from scratch — that gives you a reliable, yet surprisingly affordable result that will meet your requirements.

An example would be a chemical company that needs a metal container that can resist the corrosive effects of a hazardous substance.
