New Akro-Mils Bin Accessories Boost Efficiency, Complement Lean Initiatives

Akro-Mils Divider Label Tabs can be offset to provide multi-label visibility.
Looking for Akro-Mils bin accessories to help you create or maintain an efficiency system like 5S Lean, Kanban, or JIT? QSource.com recently added two new items that will fit in nicely with most lean initiatives: Akro-Mils' Divider Label Tab and AkroBin® Lids.

Akro-Mils Divider Label Tab

Become more efficient in an instant by simply snapping Akro-Mils' Divider Labels Tabs onto your bin dividers. These tabs allow you to quickly and clearly see the label of each compartment without having to move the contents.

Each Divider Label Tab measures 2 3/4" W x 3 3/8" L x 1/2" D and accepts a 1" x 3" adhesive label. The tab's angled face allows for greater visibility of labels and barcodes making scanning easy. Offset the tabs to keep multiple labels visible as in a file folder system.

Akro-Mils Divider Label Tabs are designed to sit almost flush (without getting in the way of shelving) with the top of Shelf Bins and ShelfMax Bins. Divider Label Tabs are also compatible with width dividers for:

Akro-Mils AkroBin Lids

Akro-Mils AkroBin Lids are compatible with
a number of AkroBin models.
When you need a way to protect the contents of your bins from dust and debris, plus keep them visible and easily accessible, Akro-Mils' AkroBin Lids are the perfect solution. Featuring a new one-piece lid design, Akro-Mils' new lids are the industry's only crystal clear lids available for hanging and stacking bins.

Easily installed without tools, the AkroBin Lids now have integrated hinge pins. These lids can be used on older AkroBins (manufactured prior to January 2013) by using the supplied template to drill hinge holes.

Akro-Mils' new AkroBin Lids replace previous lid models: 30211, 30221, 30231, and 30236. See the chart below for compatibility and dimensions:
