Wire Baskets / Wire Containers

Warehouse Rack & Shelf ships from the largest inventory in the U.S., with over 10,000 wire baskets in stock in our five strategically located facilities. Shipping in 24-48 hours from stock in St. Louis, Mo., Chicago, Ill., Atlanta, Ga., Dallas, Texas and Los Angeles, Calif.

Our wire containers are the number-one selling wire baskets in the WORLD because we have the highest quality. All our wire containers are manufactured using the most advanced high-tech machinery in the industry.  Every weld is accurately placed. The feet and base are robotically welded, offering a consistent product with longer life expectancy.  There’s not a basket in the industry that compares to the quality and craftsmanship of our wire baskets.

Our wire containers are the clear choice for better bulk material handling. They are hard working, returnable container systems that deliver high visibility savings, enabling you to handle, transport and store bulk parts and material the easy way. These tough, welded wire containers offer greater space utilization and provide quick content identification. They also promote better material flow and more efficient stock control.

Wire baskets are self-cleaning because dust cannot accumulate on the wire mesh grid. They also reduce costly product damage associated with bulk stacking. Collapsible wire containers are widely used for bulk materials handling. Light and strong, they’re all muscle, with low weight-to-load ratio, which means you move more stock, and less container. They keep contents clearly visible, even when stacking 3 or 4 high. So it’s the easy way to see what you’ve got.

Our wire baskets are designed and built for rugged, long-life service. They are available in a variety of sizes and capacities, with standard features including half or full drop gates (for ergonomic access to product even when stacked), locking gate handles, heavy-duty understructure and standard feet.

Basket options include casters, dividers, shelves, cardholders, label placards, removable lids, hinged lockable lids, fork stirrups, heavy duty feet and steel runners. Custom hot-dipped galvanized and custom colors are available. We also occasionally have used wire baskets in stock.

*Custom sizes and designs for your specific applications are our specialty.

Special Notes: *Our standard wire containers are designed to be compatible with many other popular containers on the market. However, we cannot insure stackability of our wire containers with your existing wire containers unless you send us a sample of your existing container for our inspection or we can send you engineered drawings of our container for your approval. **To prevent accidents, please note that wire containers are NOT designed to be stored in pallet racks unless you purchase the properly sized beam runner option. Wire baskets should be supported by wire decking and the beams of the rack system. ***Do not drop “full drop gate” while baskets are in the stacked position. You must reduce the factory’s stated weight capacity in half if you are dropping the “half drop gate” while baskets are in stacked position.
