Warehousing & Logistics

Magnetic products are well suited to use within warehousing and logistical environments due to the large amount of exposed ferrous surfaces available for them to interact with.


We supply a range of magnetic products and media to warehousing and logistical companies across Europe, where they are primarily used as magnetic signage or to install signage, form part of visual management systems or as organisational aids.

Signage

Magnetic Signage

supamag® magnetic sheet is a popular media for creating magnetic signage to be applied directly to ferrous surfaces. Universally printable, flexible and with superb pull strength, supamag® is the superior choice for magnetic graphics in a working environment.


Horizontal Surface – Suspending or Mounting Signage

Suspending or mounting signage to a horizontal ferrous surface in a working environment requires magnets designed to provide high pull strength. We offer a number of magnets suitable for this application.

Boutique Magnets® - high pull strength, non marking, small size in relation to working loads
Neodymium magnetic pads - high pull strength, non-marking, small size in relation to working loads
Ferrite magnetic pads - strong pull strength, non marking
Neodymium pot magnets - high pull strength, small size in relation to working loads
Magnetic hooks - high pull strength, facilitate quick changes of signage, reposition as required
supamag® magnetic tape - flexible, high pull strength, versatile in it's application


Vertical Surface – Fixing or Mounting Signage

Mounting or fixing signage to a vertical ferrous surface in the workplace necessitates specific magnetic qualities including the ability to resist shearing forces. Below are the products from our range that provide the required magnetic properties.

Boutique Magnets® - high shear resistance, high pull strength, non-marking, small size in relation to working loads
Neodymium magnetic pads - high shear resistance, high pull strength, non-marking, small size in relation to working loads
Ferrite magnetic pads - high shear resistance, strong pull strength, non-marking
Neodymium pot magnets - high pull strength, small size in relation to working loads
Magnetic hooks - high pull strength, facilitate quick changes of signage, reposition as required
Magnetic C profile - quick change labelling for use on racking or shelving
supamag® magnetic tape - flexible, high pull strength, versatile in its application
Steel tape – use to create a ferrous surface to attract magnetic tape or C profile


Angled Surface – Fixing, Mounting or Suspending Signage

Angled surfaces can still be used to securely position signage when the correct magnet is used. Suspending from and mounting or fixing to an angled ferrous surface requires magnets with the ability to provide resistance to shear forces.

Boutique Magnets® - high shear resistance, high pull strength, non-marking, small size in relation to working loads
Neodymium magnetic pads - high shear resistance, high pull strength, non-marking, small size in relation to working loads
Ferrite magnetic pads - high shear resistance, strong pull strength, non-marking



Organisational & Visual Management

Organisational Aids

Magnets are commonly used in the workplace to display notices, secure documents and in conjunction with receptive boards.

  • Magnetic White Boards

Receptive boards to which magnets will attract and grip are typically referred to as 'magnetic white boards' or 'magnetic boards'. supaferro® ferrous sheet is ideal for creating receptive boards; we can also add a dry wipe laminate to create a multi functional board.

  • Office Magnets

We supply a range of office magnets designed for use on 'magnetic' boards. Each type has different characteristics although all will hold notices and documents. Visit the Office Magnets product page for further information.

  • Labelling

Magnetic C profile applied directly to steel shelving provides an easily updated way of displaying product or stock information via printed inserts. Quickly install, remove and reposition the C profile and inserts as required.


Visual Management & Workplace Efficiency Systems

Magnetic and attractive products and materials form a key part of workplace visual management systems and workplace efficiency systems like Kanban and 5S. We supply companies across Europe with the magnetic products they use to create visual management and efficiency systems.

  • Document Holders

supamag® magnetic tape is widely used to create magnetic document holders or covers used to display key information within a workplace such as procedural information to health & safety documentation.

  • Floor Marking

Coloured supamag® magnetic tape is often used for floor marking as part of a workplace efficiency system to clearly define specific spaces within a workplace.

  • Magnetic White Boards

Receptive boards to receive magnets created using supaferro® ferrous sheet; we can also add a dry wipe laminate to create a multi purpose board.

  • Individual Magnets

We supply a range magnets designed for use on 'magnetic' boards. Each type has different characteristics although all will hold notices and documents. Further information can be found on the Office Magnets product page.
