WireCrafters Case Study: Finding Storage Space Between Dock Doors


Jason with NB West Contracting, a large midwest asphalt paving and concrete construction company, contacted ISS Material Handling about tool storage they needed in a high traffic area that was tight on space.


ISS Material Handling Project Manager Tom visited the NB West facility to take a look at their space and to perform an inventory assessment. Using AutoCad, Tom was able to show the customer they could build two Tool Cribs with a custom full-mat Mezzanine and fit them in between their overhead doors. 

ISS Material Handling brought in WireCrafters as a strategic partner for this project, knowing the safety and durability their products provide was the right fit for this unique space.


The Tool Crib is located on the lower level for their small- to medium-sized inventory and is secured with WireCrafters Partitions and a Sliding Door. The Full-Mat Mezzanine with bar grating decking houses the bulkier, larger inventory items. The WireCrafters sliding gate on the top level is used as a pallet drop gate. The WireCrafters product, as opposed to traditional handrail, keeps NB West’s inventory safe and secure while also mitigating the risk of a box falling onto someone from the top level.
