Metal storage bins utilize metal frames and solid walls to provide a lot of product protection. These solid sided steel containers can be used as storage containers for manufactured goods or castings, or they can be used as small metal shipping containers to ship very heavy product over long distances. Steel tubs are truly flexible in their application, whether you’re shipping brand new castings or collect scrap metal, a metal bin is a great heavy-duty storage option.
The metal version of bulk bins can be collapsible, folding or rigid. Metal bulk containers often have several options to fit your needs, including: drop doors, stackable, solid walls, lifting lugs for lifting with a crane, fork tubes for rotating the bins, heavy-duty gauge steel, heavy-duty load capacity, and the size of the container.
Rigid Metal Bins
Rigid metal bulk containers are especially suited to any kind of heavy-duty application such as metal working plants, metal stamping, forging, casting, etc. Rigid steel bins are often suited to handle 4,000 lbs or more and can be stacked several bins high. When purchasing heavy-duty rigid metal containers, you may want to pay attention to the gauge of the wire mesh as a good indication to the capabilities of the container.
Folding (Collapsible) Metal Bins
Folding metal storage bins tend to be lighter duty than the rigid metal storage bins. Collapsible containers tend to be weight rated between 1,500 and 4,000 lbs. The collapsible metal bins are a nice option for a small metal shipping bin. They work well in this situation, because the sides of the container can be folded down, thereby reducing the size of an empty container. The collapsed storage bin can be stacked in a corner of the warehouse, or they can be loaded onto a trailer for return shipment to your plant.
