Mobile Shelving

Mobile storage is the simplest answer to maximising storage capacity whilst making the most of your available space.  We can provide a track for the mobile base to sit on or a trackless system for cleaning environments, both systems are easy to use and access.  The use of mobile storage allows you to store far more than traditional filing cabinets (in some instances 100% more) and means you get more value from your office space giving you room to fit in more staff making your office more productive, it also means your business can grow without the need for taking on more expensive floor space.

There are three types of mobile shelving: Hand pulled manual; Mechanically assisted manual and powered mobile.

  • Hand Pulled Manual Mobile Shelving

These units are ideal for slow moving, light weight small parts storage or archiving.  As light weight installations they are produced in short runs of three bays maximum.  This is probably the most economical form of mobile installation you will achieve.

  • Mechanically Assisted Manual

The main differences between this form of shelving and the hand pulled version is its ability to hold greater weight and have a much increased length of run.  This makes it ideal for the larger installation with varied and heavier product weights.  The mobile aisles are moved using a hand wheel.

  • Powered

Powered mobile shelving adds an even greater level of convenience for the user.  It is also ideal when expensive or fragile items are stored as the system can be closed and locked.
