If you run a business that deals with the transportation and storage of materials, you may have come across the term “stillages” or “cages”. Stillages and cages come in different types, such as mesh stillages, solid stillages, and A-frame stillages, which are commonly used in a variety of industries for material handling, storage, and transportation purposes.
A stillage is essentially a large container that is used to store, move or transport materials. They are often made of steel and can be in the form of mesh or solid containers. Stillages are designed to be stackable, which means they can be easily stored in a warehouse or transported on a pallet. They are also designed to be lifted by forklifts or other handling equipment, which makes them ideal for warehouse logistics.
Cages, on the other hand, are a type of stillage that is often used for the transportation of goods. They are usually collapsible metal pallets that can be folded down for easy storage and transport when not in use. Cages are also stackable and can be used with trolleys or A-frame trolleys for efficient material handling.
There are many different types of stillages and cages available including mesh stillages, solid stillages, post pallets, tyre stillages, and bespoke/custom stillages. Mesh stillages are designed with open mesh construction, which makes them ideal for storing or transporting goods that require ventilation or airflow. Whereas solid stillages are constructed with solid walls and bases, which makes them suitable for storing or transporting heavier or bulkier materials. By using stackable stillages and cages, you can maximise your warehouse or storage area, increasing the amount of materials you can store without taking up additional floor space. This can help to reduce the need for costly expansions or relocations.
