Ways to monitor and control warehouse environments

Having a certain level of control over your warehouse can improve the efficiency and security of your business. Whether you work in a specialist field and need to store different products at specific temperatures, are looking to increase the productivity within your operation or simply tighten security measures, advancements in technology have made these easily achievable.

Here are a few innovative ways in which a warehouse environment can be monitored and controlled.

Wireless temperature and humidity software

Many industries, such as pharmaceutical and food preparation and storage, have a need to control the temperature of their warehouse. Keeping the temperature consistent is key and as an extension of that, being able to monitor the temperature of the warehouse is particularly useful.

Wireless temperature and humidity monitoring software is an excellent way to monitor the temperature of a warehouse space, checking it is kept between specific ranges. Using wireless temperature monitoring users are able to view, analyse and compare data in real time, set parameters for alarms and export reports. With this software, monitoring the temperature is easily achieved and it means changes can be swiftly implemented should the temperature fluctuate.

Noise reduction partitioning

Large warehouses often have different processes occurring under one roof. This enables every part of the business to be kept together and additionally, reduces the cost associated with occupying various warehouses. However, keeping everything under one roof can throw up some problems. One common issue is noise.

Many warehouses house operations that can be incredibly noisy. This is fine unless employees are required to work close to these noisy operations. There are laws in place regarding noise in the workplace and employers have a responsibility to their employees.

Short of relocating the noisy operations elsewhere, what can be done to address this issue? Noise reduction partitioning is a cost-effective and simple solution. Industrial noise reduction partitions can offer up to 30dB(A) reduction of certain sound frequencies meaning employees and loud warehouse processes can occur adjacent to each other.

Managed access control implementation

Safety and security is paramount no matter what industry you work in; with regards to both your business and your employees. Being able to manage and control who is accessing your warehouse is a great way to increase the security of your space.

Implementing a managed access control system allows you to monitor who is accessing your warehouse. This not only means you can restrict access to your warehouse to reduce the chance of any incidents, but it also means that if an incident occurs, you’ll have records and data to refer to.

A managed access control system allows you to restrict unauthorised personnel, monitor who is accessing your warehouse, limit access to scheduled shifts and record who accesses the warehouse at various points during the day.

Temperature control partitioning

We previously highlighted that many industries, such as pharmaceutical and food preparation and storage, have a need to control the temperature within their warehouse. Monitoring your temperature with wireless temperature software can help you keep track of your warehouse environment, but what’s the best way to create different areas within your warehouse, all maintaining a different temperature? Temperature control partitioning allows you to create separate areas within your warehouse, heating or cooling them through heaters or air conditioning units. The partitioning panels have thermal properties that allow different temperatures to be maintained simultaneously. This way, it is not necessary to heat and/or cool the entire warehouse, reducing energy costs and damage to the environment.

This industrial partitioning for controlled temperature storage rooms allows you to form a permanent but relocatable wall which can be moved should you need to expand or relocate your temperature controlled areas.

Real-time logistics tracking

Warehouses are not inherently dangerous places to work but there can be certain hazards associated with the environment, especially if you have a large number of employees and vehicles such as forklift trucks. With real-time logistics tracking, you can track the locations of all your warehouse workers, including both pedestrians and vehicle operators. This not only improves safety in the workplace but provides valuable information to help increase efficiency, drive improvement and analyse performances.
