Commercial Warehouse Stock Picking Ladders.
Time is money in every aspect of business, but in some aspects of business, it is even more crucial than in others. Inventory control is one of those areas where consistent workflow literally adds up to dollars and cents that you either save or lose. Stock picking ladders make inventory control safe, fast, and efficient by providing workers with a stable means of climbing to desired heights and a trustworthy, stable platform one which they can stand and balance while doing their jobs.
These versatile, safe, and ergonomic platforms are ideal for small warehouses, stores with narrow aisles, and even areas with heavy traffic. They are designed to be mobile and compact and to fit in areas that larger ladders cannot safely be mounted and climbed. They are also engineered with sturdy steel construction and built in full compliance with OSHA 1910.29 & ANSI A14.7 regulations.
Designed with handrails that employees can grip while climbing and standing, these units are stable, secure, and completely safe to work on in both retail and industrial environments. A number of features make them mobile, ergonomic, and highly practical for all stocking operations.
To begin with, all steps on all stock picking ladders measure 24” across. This makes them just wide enough to stand on two feet and balance by gripping the handrails. Steps can be also be ordered with optional safety treads if additional precautions are necessary. Stair treads can be ordered in perforated, grip strut, or safety walk.
Unit heights range from 92 inches to 122 inches. Platform heights range between 50 inches and 80 inches. Different units, of course, have different numbers of steps. Smaller ladders have 5 steps, while the largest units have 8 steps. All models have a total weight capacitance of 350 pounds and a shelf capacity of 300 pounds.
Mobility is important in the inventory control business. Nothing is more annoying and time consuming than having to lift the ladder and manually move it over to the next spot. Lifting can also result in back and shoulder strain which no organization wants to risk.
Because of this, stock picking ladders are built with the same construction features as other types of steel rolling ladders. They feature sprung castors that allow them to be rolled over the floor and then locked in place by rubber feet when a person climbs the steps. This makes it easy to position them even in the tightest corners and more narrow of aisles with minimal risk of injury.
Standard platform depth is 20 inches deep with optional 30 inches deep by special order.
Many manufacturers also make powered stock picking ladders that operate on a 12V marine battery and winch. Push button controls mounted at the top of the platform make these units easy to operate. Bottom limit switches stops shelves automatically at the top and bottom of the unit.
Businesses in both warehouse distribution and store front retail sales have consistently experienced improved efficiency in inventory control and a decrease in worker accident by a reasonable investment in stock picking ladders.
