Clear Plastic Storage Bins
Due to their common usage in storing a wide variety of different items in a wide variety of environments, plastic storage bins come in a wide variety of designs, including different colors, shapes, and sizes. Colored storage bins work great when you are implementing a system of color-coded storage, so that your employees can find items fast by associating items with a certain color. They also do a fine job in brightening up otherwise dull work areas by adding color to the room. However, there are some instances when clear plastic bins may be the better option for you. This article will highlight two of these instances.
You recently moved, and you need to keep some of your valued items in a rental storage unit for a while. Storing these items in clear plastic storage bins will protect your belongings from moisture as well as from insects and other animals that could destroy them. However, because they are clear, you will be able to view the contents of the containers without having to pull each one out to open it up. This means a lot if the storage unit is cramped, the boxes are heavy, and you’re just looking for one item.
Another instance of when using clear plastic storage bins might be the way to go is when you are working at a busy auto repair facility. Keeping frequently-used parts and materials in clear plastic storage boxes will allow you to quickly identify which box has what you are looking for, as opposed to having to pull each one out and open it up to see what’s inside. Remember the old adage that time is money. Clear boxes could help you save time and money by helping you to find things quickly.
Another thing that should be mentioned is that sometimes you can get clear containers for less money than their colored counterparts as no colorant goes into the finished product, making clear containers less expensive to manufacture.
With a little bit of imagination, you could probably identify plenty of other instances when clear plastic storage bins may work to your advantage more than those that are colored.
