SELECTION GUIDE #4 - WAREHOUSE MAGNETS

Shelf Tag Supply offers industrial strength magnets for a variety of applications in your
warehouse. Indicate products, locations, styles and other criteria by color, shape or
message content. Magnets move quickly and easily as space and priorities change.

Magnetic strength is determined principally by 3 factors:

1. Magnet thickness – generally the thicker, the stronger

2. Magnetic material – special ferrite content produces stronger “high energy” magnets (about 40% stronger than regular material) for the same thickness

3. Smoothness of magnet and the surface it to which it is bonding– the smoother the surfaces, the stronger the bond

Time is another strength factor. An interesting phenomenon occurs when both the surfaces are quite smooth as is generally the case in shelf and rack applications. After 24 to 48 hours, the strength of the magnet bond may double, requiring twice as much force to slide the magnet out of position. It is believed that this results from the flexible magnetic material gradually flowing into the micro cavities of the other surface to increase the coefficient of friction. If the magnet is slid to a new position, it will take some time (1-2 days) to improve the bond again.

Bar Code Labels on Magnets:

Eliminate the hassle of peeling sticky labels - apply your labels to shelf magnets.
Versatile magnets recommended in environments from 0-160° F.

   

Magnets to Write-on:

Write product/location data, counts, dates, initials and other information with
a damp erase pen. Further differentiate by magnet color or shape.

   
  • Shelf Magnets - use a damp erase pen to write-on magnets in a selection
    of many colors
  • Dry Erase Magnets - use a dry erase market to write directly on colored
    magnets
  • Magnetic Symbols - write directly on magnetic shapes (letters, numbers,
    circles, arrows, etc.) with a damp erase pen
  • Rack Maximum Load Magnets - pre-printed warning message on a flexible
    magnet, write in permissible weights with a permanent marker or label

Magnetic Identification:

Magnetic letters and numbers to indicate a location, message, name, etc.

   

Do-It-Yourself Magnetizing:

Magnetic tape roll to be cut to desired lengths for applying to items for
magnetization - labels, signs, tags, posters, notices, clips and more. Dark
surface color is not intended for write-on use.
