Efficiently utilising your warehouse space is of utmost importance. A good storage system can have a direct impact on the productivity and functionality of your business. Pallet cages for example, provide an ideal storage solution for various warehouse, distribution and transport applications. Commonly referred to as stillages, stillage cages, collapsible pallets, storage cages and caged pallets, aside from ease of access and visibility when transported, pallet cages are designed to make handling of stock easier.

Benefits of Using Pallet Cages
Aside from organising and maximising the use of available space in the warehouse, enabling faster picking and packing of products, increased efficiency and productivity and preventing stock damage, pallet cages offer numerous benefits.
Sturdy and Lightweight
Pallet cages are usually constructed from durable steel, offering a solid yet lightweight and resilient design. Because of their ideal weight-to-strength ratio, they are the perfect solution for stacked operations.
The positive locking design ensures the cages can be safely stored and won’t slide off standard Australian size pallet racking. This ensures improved safety and prevention of injuries and near misses.
Variety of Styles
Depending on what you need to store, some options are more suitable than others. The most common ones include mesh cage or solid panel designs, wooden and metal bases, and custom design options.
Factors to Consider Before Buying
Load Capacity and Rugged Construction
The load capacity of your pallet cage will depend on its size and design as well as the storage abilities of your warehouse. While there are various sized pallets to choose from, their power will all vary. Cages made from steel are more durable and offer maximum protection and safe handling of the payload.
Choose pallet cages that offer 4-way forklift access, stackable design, can be folded up or dismantled easily for efficient storage, built-in locking system and a quick release door mechanism that allows easy access inside.
