Construction Quality

Many of our wire baskets are made of steel, but some can be galvanized collapsible bins as well. For the specific construction material please read each listing carefully to assess quality.

Collapsible Wire Baskets

Collapsible wire baskets tend to be lighter duty than the rigid wire baskets. Collapsible bins 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 collapsed, thereby reducing the size of an empty container. The collapsed storage bin can be stacked in a corner of the warehouse, or they can loaded onto a trailer for return shipment to your plant.

Rigid Wire Baskets

The wire mesh version of the bulk container can be collapsible, but quite often, they are rigid. These wire mesh baskets are used extensively in industrial applications and they can stand up to quite a bit of abuse. You will find the rigid wire baskets are more durable (and more expensive) than collapsible wire mesh baskets. Due to the square tube steel construction for the corner posts, they can handle more weight and they are generally easier to stack. By comparison, the collapsible wire baskets can be quite strong, but they are slightly easier to damage, and they are not as sturdy when stacked. Wire baskets are a nice way to handle parts within a manufacturing environment. We have a very nice inventory of wire baskets for sale throughout the nation, but most of the containers tend to be located in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Missouri, and Ontario.
