In the wide range of solutions for the logistics and storage of wine bottles offered by Italiana Contenitori, MARK080120 is a winning choice, let’s discover it together. Known as “Market Vei,” the “old” in Piedmontese dialect, this wire mesh container is specially designed to ensure maximum safety and protection of bottles during transportation and storage.
Market is a container that provides smart space efficiency, incredible solidity, great durability and great lightness, in fact it weighs only 46 kg compared to its more than 1,000 kg load capacity. For these reasons it is a container that can face all the challenges of enological logistics with great reliability. The anti-tip bars increase the safety of your precious goods and make it impossible to tip the container, while the internal dividers allow the load to be optimised and subdivided, ensuring the best and safest arrangement of bottles during transport.
Compared to traditional racking or fixed structures, mesh containers for the wine industry offer a number of advantages that make them the ideal choice for storage and handling in the wine cellars:
- is stackable, up to 3 containers on one
- it does not require load certifications
- it does not need to be anchored to the ground
- it can be moved with forklift and pallet truck
- it can be folded when empty to save space on return trips, or to clear up space for other works or materials
- it protects the bottles against accidental impacts.
Market’s front opening is called a “half hinge gate” and allows convenient bottle handling at all times. This simple yet ingenious design expedient makes all picking operations more efficient and faster, allowing wholesale and retail needs to be harmonized.
Market is not, however, the only family of containers suitable for wine industry logistics and storage; Pallet Containers also offer a viable alternative by transforming a simple wooden platform into a stackable, self-supporting and complete container.
Galvanic treatment of the structure gives IC’s industrial metal containers unbeatable resistance against weathering and corrosion, is unaffected by moisture, and is dustproof. An additional advantage is its ease of maintenance, or rather, its lack of maintenance. Being protected from the effects of weather and chemicals, this container is virtually immune to the effects of time, reducing the cost and effort required to keep it in perfect condition.
