If you are in the warehouse industry, you’ve heard the term warehouse catwalk system? They are used heavily in the Warehousing Manufacturing Industry and are a specialty warehouse equipment necessary for a smooth-running operation.
In a warehouse or manufacturing environment, a conveying system and sorters are instrumental in providing the proper flow of product from point A to point B in a warehouse facility. If these break down or are not working properly, your business has a big problem on its hands.
Strategic and routine maintenance plans are vital to ensure safety specifications and proper operation. You need access to the conveying system and sorters in order to service these systems properly and quickly.
Obviously, any downtime of the system costs money and negatively effects your overall bottom line. A business needs to be able to access the conveying system and sorters without interrupting the flow of products and business. A warehouse catwalk system is one of the best ways to provide access to these systems.
Catwalks are in place to provide a safe and effective means of access to industrial shelving units, conveyor systems and warehouse racking without interrupting the flow of products within the warehouse.
Catwalks allow your logistics team to perform maintenance or repair without involving product flow without any significant downtime, and your movement of goods can remain consistent.
When elevated to heights that fit within the facility, catwalks can maximize the existing space available and help accomplish the goals to provide access for service to other important systems. Catwalks act as a safe and efficient way to help organize the warehouse without losing available space and delayed time.
Catwalk systems are suspended from a structure like a ceiling and are self-supported. They are ideal for connecting one structure to another and their modular shape allows for an easy way to access in hard to reach or tight spaces.
Occupational safety is extremely important for the safety of the workers operating in and around the Warehouse. Catwalks meet OSHA standards for safety and can meet the Americans with Disabilities Act as well by building special railings and specialized equipment.
