In this age where space and time are money, companies are looking for ways to maximize their space and reduce the time required to handle inventory. Companies in the healthcare, file storage, retail, industrial, horticulture, automotive and many unusual industries are challenged to manage physical storage inventory efficiently and cost-effectively.
Making the Mobility Happen
We have engineered lower cost ideas that can grow your production without adding an inch to your footprint. A mobile shelving system will fit very well into your storage space. Both manually-operated and electrically-powered systems are available. The shelving or rack units are installed on bases that ride on the tracks-rails that are installed on the floor. The rails are ADA compliant. At the end of each unit, placards may be attached to identify what is contained in that row.
Manually-operated mobile systems are generally used in applications where the products that are being stored are lighter in weight like in most retail storage, some file storage, clothing and linen, food storage and miscellaneous storage.
Mechanical assist carriages have a crank on the accessible end of each unit. They are a great solution in just about any storage situation. In most units, turning the crank clockwise moves the unit to the right, while turning it counterclockwise moves it to the left. As the unit moves, it creates an aisle allowing access to the items stored in that row.
Electrically operated units move by pushing a button. They run on small AC or DC motors.
Advantages of Mobile Storage Systems
The most prominent benefit of a mobile storage system is the increase in space efficiency. Because the storage area only needs one aisle, which moves, more shelving units can be placed in the space. The units will increase your storage capacity by up to 100%.
Productivity will increase because items will be located more quickly, regardless of what it is. Whether files, or boxes, or other objects, a mobile storage system can be designed to meet your needs.
The storage is more secure, especially when automated with computer access. Only people with proper access codes can access your files.
Uses of Mobile Systems
Retail stockrooms are perfect environments for a mobile shelving system. Because the system can reduce the space needed in the back of the house, more space can be dedicated to retail operations.
Other common applications where they are ideal are X-Ray or large record storage, warehouse storage, archival records storage, vaults, clothing apparel storage, shoe storage, equipment storage, “big-box” storage environments, ready to assemble (RTA) furniture, tire storage, grow houses and appliance storage to name a few.
Medical offices, libraries, and government offices all need to retain files for many years. In the case of County Clerk offices, they can provide more space for deed books and other documents, preventing the need for additional space. Legal offices may retain wills and other records for years before they are called on for use.
