Orion Lighting Systems

Lighting is often overlooked in industrial and commercial facilities, but it plays a critical role in maintaining a safe, productive, and efficient work environment. With ORION Industrial Lighting Systems, you can ensure the safety and well-being of your workers and enhance your facility’s productivity, energy efficiency, and overall operational costs.

Energy-Efficient Lighting Solutions

Wheeler Material Handling is all about balancing the budget while delivering high performance. The market for industrial lighting options is large, so when you’re considering what the best fit for your facility is, consider the following perks of energy-efficient lighting solutions:

Reduced Energy Cost

With Wheeler’s ORION commercial LED lighting, you are reaping the benefits of lower energy costs and lower energy consumption. Reduction in your facility’s energy usage can result in substantial energy savings, translating into lower electricity bills and reduced operating costs over time. 

Longer Lifespan and Lower Maintenance Costs

Energy-efficient lighting tends to have longer lifespans compared to traditional lighting, meaning infrequent replacement and lower maintenance costs. This can greatly benefit large commercial or industrial facilities that tend to have large numbers of light fixtures, as it minimizes downtime for maintenance, leading to increased productivity and cost savings. 

Improved Lighting Quality

ORION’s energy-efficient LED lighting provides a higher quality of light, as it reduces glare and provides a higher color rendering index. This results in a safer and more comfortable working environment for your employees, as they can experience reduced eye strain and improved visibility, overall enhancing productivity.

We are proud to be a UNARCO dealer, offering their complete range of pallet racking products for sale. Our warehouse design experts can consult with you on how to get an optimal pallet rack setup for the exact measurements of your warehouse, the lift trucks you utilize, and the types of product you move through your warehouse.

With over fifty years of experience, UNARCO has proven to be the most flexible pallet rack manufacturer in the industry. Over the decades, they have developed the ability to produce an entire line of warehouse storage solutions including carton flow rack, pallet flow rack, push-back rack, drive-in rack, and cantilever rack as well as complex pick module systems. We can help you figure out the best warehouse storage system for your operation.

Storage is often the first thing built in a warehouse, but most warehouses use outdated systems or aren’t making optimal use of their space. To be a top tier operation in today’s competitive warehouse industry, businesses need to utilize the best possible layout for their facility and leverage the right storage system to maximize efficiency. Read about the different types of storage systems we offer below to help find the right one for your business.

Carton Flow Rack

Carton flow rack systems utilize sloped shelves with rollers to create a first-in/first-out presentation basis to organize products and lower labor costs. This style of storage greatly improves efficiency over traditional pallet racking by having dedicated rear loading and front picking aisles to improve workflow. Carton flow rack also utilizes half the space as traditional pallet rack. Ideal for warehouse with numerous SKUs, carton flow rack can also be integrated into conveyor systems to create functional pick modules. We offer UPick, KPick/Kingway, D-2 low profile, Rhinotrac, Rhinodeck, and Dura-flex™ carton flow systems to help you pick the setup that’s best for your needs.

Pallet Flow Rack

Pallet flow rack is an ideal storage system for fast-moving warehouses that need to be able to move entire pallets of products quickly and easily. Pallet flow racking utilizes sloped shelves equipped with heavy-duty skate wheels to allow gravity to pull pallets down for easy operator access from the picking position. This creates a first-in/first-out, high-density storage system ideal for fast-paced warehouses. Our pallet flow racking systems can have storage up to twenty pallets deep, while still being gentle enough to handle the most fragile products with adjustable angles and electromechanical and or pneumatic speed-braking systems.

Push Back Rack

Push back racking systems are simple, low profile storage solutions that utilize nesting carts that are pulled by gravity along steel rails. This style of racking creates a first-in/last-out inventory management system. Built with structural or roll-formed frames, push back racks can be up to five pallets deep with each pallet bearing up to 2,500lbs each. Each lane operates independently, and multiple pick facings mean that multiple SKUs can be stored and retrieved without interacting with other products above or below. Forklift operators also never have to enter the rack, promoting a safer warehouse environment.

Drive-In & Drive-Thru Pallet Rack

Drive-in and drive-thru pallet rack systems are high-density storage solutions in which a forklift loads and retrieves by driving into the system. Drive-in systems are last-in/first-out, and drive-thru systems are first-in/first-out, and both provide low-cost bulk storage for warehouses with large volumes of like product. These systems can also be easily integrated into standard pallet rack or any kind of special structural designs. Safety is always a top priority in the material handling industry, and we create sloped-leg frames to create extra clearance and safety for forklifts as they drive into these systems to help minimize the risk of impact. 

Cantilever Rack

Cantilever rack systems are designed to store loads of varied length and proportions while removing the horizontal restrictions of traditional pallet rack. Ideal for storing products such as pipes, tubing, or lumber, these rack systems utilize movable positive locking arms to promote customizability and safety. Cantilever storage systems can be designed to store any type of product no matter how bulky or awkward they are. They’re also designed to make assembly a breeze with their one-piece column and cantilever base.

Pick Module Systems

A pick module system is a sophisticated racking system that incorporates multiple storage solutions in a multi-level work platform to move a product through a warehouse. In pick module systems, palletized loads are moved by gravity through the system to be broken into cartons and pieces before making it to shipping. By optimizing flow efficiency between pallet racking, integrated conveyors, push back rack, carton flow, and software-driven product sortation systems, distribution centers utilizing pick module systems can fulfill over one hundred thousand orders per day, or a million units per week. With an engineered pick module system, businesses can increase accuracy, efficiency, and precision while lowering labor costs.

Steele Solutions Mezzanines

Steele Solutions Mezzanines

The ground floor of your facility is not your only opportunity for storage and floor space. At Wheeler Material Handling, we offer Steele Solutions’ warehouse mezzanines as your space optimization solution. With Steele Solutions designs, you are able to take advantage of your facility’s footprint with the custom installation of steel mezzanine systems and other steel structures such as catwalks, crossovers, platforms, and towers. 

What Are Industrial Mezzanines?

Industrial mezzanines, or mezzanine platforms, are supported, elevated structures that allow you to maximize the space between floor and ceiling. By implementing Steele Solutions warehouse mezzanines, you are able to increase your storage capacity and operational space without needing to source additional property! 

At Wheeler, a solution tailored to your specific facility need is our number one priority. That is why we offer custom build and installation options when it comes to optimizing your facility’s operations area. 

Types of Industrial Mezzanines

There are four types of mezzanines that are standard in material handling facilities. Depending on the need you are looking to satisfy, one of the following mezzanine designs could be the space and storage answer for you:

Building-Supported Mezzanine

This type of mezzanine is designed to utilize the existing structure of your facility. By incorporating the structural integrity of the existing building, a building-supported mezzanine is a cost-effective way to upgrade the square footage of your facility without having to consider engineering or architectural labor. 

Freestanding Mezzanine

A freestanding mezzanine is your answer for enhancing storage space in your facility. Meant to maximize space above and below, a free-standing mezzanine offers versatility in its ability to be set up, taken down, and moved about quickly. 

Rack-Supported Mezzanine 

Rack-supported mezzanines resemble a catwalk, as these kinds of mezzanines are supported by rack systems already in place rather than supports of their own. These space amplifiers allow you to expand your footprint upwards versus having to rearrange or source a new property for extra space. 

Shelving-Supported Mezzanine

Similar to the rack-supported mezzanine, a shelving-supported mezzanine allows for extra storage space to be built by utilizing pre-existing shelving structures. They are budget-friendly and efficient in their installation, however, they can be difficult to configure depending on the arrangement of your facility’s already installed shelving systems.
