International Shelving Month at Direct Storage – Shelf Highlights

We usually find that there is a national or international day, week or month for pretty much everything! However, after a bit (really, only a bit, so I could be wrong) of research I have concluded that there isn’t one of these special days, weeks or even months for the humble shelving system. So, here at Direct Storage, without going as far as to declare an official international shelving month, we are going to spend the next few weeks of February highlighting our range of shelving systems and units.

Tote Pans – Effective Small Parts Storage

The word “Tote” in the case of tote pans means to “carry” something or perhaps store something. I remember seeing whole rows of tote pans in my dad’s garage. He used to keep all sorts of things in them, nuts, bolts, screws and there were some larger ones with tools in.

For example, in the middle of the garage was a large workbench and dad would often move the tote pan or pans... Read More
