Knowledge Guide: Maximise warehouse storage space

Maximise warehouse storage space the easy way!

We all want more from less, that’s just nature! In a warehouse it is of vital importance to be aware of ways to make the absolute most out of the storage space that is available to you.

New contracts, lost contracts, food storage regulations and accreditations, technological advancements and faster on demand home deliveries, all impact the way in which goods are stored and more importantly how warehouse space is planned and maximised.

Planning for warehouse storage efficiency

The segregation of warehouse space in to contained smaller environments, all within the same location is becoming increasingly common.

Common reasons for this requirement include:

  • Enabling different types of goods to be stored directly next to each other, without the risk of cross contamination
  • Enabling different customers goods to be stored alongside each other with clear distinction on which area is which
  • Controlling temperature between storage areas and between different product types
  • Storing raw materials and finished goods in one unit
  • Odour control

Creating this space, is however alighted with problems such as:

  • The height of warehouse buildings
  • Needing a versatile, adaptable and yet cost effective solution
  • Damage caused by creating permanent partitions in a rented space or investing in a space that is not owned
  • Being able to segregate in tight spaces and without losing too much floor space
  • Downtime and mess caused during the construction of masonry or stud partitions

The construction of tall masonry or stud partitions can sometimes represent something of a quandary, as there is a structural challenge at high level and as a consequence they can often be used in conjunction with suspended ceilings.

So what’s the solution?

Flexiwall is a unique solution made up from reinforced fire-rated PVC and glass cloth panels, which removes many of the usual headaches associated with creating a partition to segregate space:

  • Systems can be installed to any height, length or profile and will even fit around existing services
  • Panels are suspended using existing steel work, making installations quick and clean and without the need for additional suspended ceilings
  • Systems can be reconfigured and relocated should the requirements within the space change
  • Installations don’t cause excessive mess and disruption to current operations
  • Once installed the final partition takes up minimal floor space and can even be installed between existing racking
  • Solutions are cost effective and require less planning than traditional methods


If your reading this article then it is likely your storage requirements have changed, due to one or more of the common reasons we mentioned earlier in this document.

So in order to maximise storage space within the existing foot print you have, there is a solution in Flexiwall. The final partition will take up minimal floor space, install between existing racking and even relocate should needs change again.
