Press release date: Aug 01, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Akron, Ohio - Akro-Mils, a North American leader in storage, organization and transport products, introduces the exclusive Lean Panel(TM) - the first and only angled louvered panel in the industry. Lean Panels combine the convenience and strength of a louvered panel with the utility of an inclined pick rack.

The Lean Panel's patent-pending, 15-degree angle improves visibility and access to parts and supplies being stored in Akro-Mils' industry-leading AkroBins®, InSight® Ultra-Clear Bins and ProHANGER®.

Keeping older product toward the front of bins (FIFO), Lean Panels are ideal for productivity initiatives such as 5S Lean, Kanban or JIT. The panels are wall mountable, or can be used with single- and double-sided floor racks. The doublesided floor rack can be mobilized with the 30653DOLLY kit to create a mobile, high-density storage system.
