Frazier Introduces the ERGO BEAM - for Easy Order Picking
Frazier's ergonomically designed ERGO BEAM makes case picking easier - reducing
worker injury and increasing pick rates
Long Valley, NJ - February 9th, 2009 - Frazier Industrial Company, leading
manufacturer of structural steel pallet rack systems, announced today the release of its new Ergo Beam. Designed to provide easy access to hard-to-reach cartons on lower
shelf levels, the Ergo Beam creates an opening between pallet locations, through which
an order-picker can enter and comfortably reach rear cartons.
"Our customers have reported less product breakage, fewer worker injuries and greater
productivity as result of the Ergo Beam," explains Domenick Iellimo, Vice President of
Sales at Frazier. "The Ergo Beam is a great solution to a real problem for warehouse
workers. We simply split the front shelf beam into 2 separate curved beams that attach
to the rear horizontal, creating an ample opening for order pickers to access rear
cartons on standard GM-style, 48"x40" pallet locations," claims Iellimo.
The Ergo Beam is made from 4" structural steel channel for optimal durability and
abuse-resistance. There are three options; the first is the standard Ergo which is a
curved beam with the flange side of the channel facing inward. This design has a
smooth surface on which workers can comfortably lean while selecting cartons. The
second option is designed with the channel flange facing outwards, which protects bar
code labels from being scraped by fork lift equipment. The last option is the Label-Ergo Beam which offers the best of both worlds - a smooth outer surface with a 1/8"
recessed web that prevents damage to bar code labels and anchor bolts. Standard
pallet supports can be used in both the standard and Label-Ergo Beam.
