Wire Baskets are an excellent bulk storage solution for a wide array of products around your facility! A durable robotically welded wire mesh design with a rust-resistant electrogalvanized finish provides a see-through container that won't wear or rust, while keeping the basket itself lightweight for easy handling. Each container is collapsible and can be stacked up to 10 high when collapsed, freeing up valuable floor space around your facility when not in use. We carry four sizes standard but can have custom sized baskets manufactured if needed; just ask!

These wire baskets are designed with versatility, durability, and efficiency in mind, making them an excellent choice for various industries and applications.

Wire baskets are relatively lightweight and allow ventilation and product visibility, making storage and inventory checks hassle free and preventing any water or debris buildup. WorldTainer wire baskets feature a standard half-drop gate in the front to remove products while stored and are durable to handle being maneuvered by lift equipment.

One of the standout features of New WorldTainer Wire Baskets is their adaptability. Whether you're managing inventory in a warehouse, storing retail merchandise, or organizing parts and supplies in a manufacturing facility, these wire baskets can be easily integrated into your existing storage systems. They come in a range of sizes, allowing you to customize your storage space to meet your specific needs. The open mesh design provides excellent visibility and ventilation, making it easy to identify and access items stored within the baskets.

Wire baskets are available in two styles, non-collapsible and collapsible. Non-collapsible wire baskets, sometimes called rigid wire baskets, are for heavy-duty applications. They do not collapse or fold and can only be stacked four to five baskets high. However, because of their heavier design, they can handle weight capacities exceeding 4,000 pounds.

Collapsible wire baskets feature a lightweight design and are made to be able to collapse and fold to conserve space when not in use. All of our new wire baskets are collapsible and have a weight capacity of up to 4,000 pounds and can be stacked up to 10 high, and with FOB shipping points across the country, you can be sure that you are getting the best freight rate possible for your order. American Surplus also has basket dividers and hanged lids available for every sized WorldTainer wire basket.
