Mobile storage is extremely safe. Our unique locking handwheel ensures that the open aisle is braked, and that the adjacent mobile base units cannot close up the aisle whilst personnel are accessing the shelving.
Our geared drive system enables fully loaded mobile shelving bases to be operated with minimum effort, and they are frequently installed in public access environments, such as libraries.
Our grooved wheels and tracks ensure absolute accuracy and prevent longer-span mobile shelving systems from fishtailing (or bending) along their length.
No, mobile shelving isn't expensive. In fact, there are potential savings in reducing the floor space required for storage or in the efficiency of combining several existing storage areas.
For example, by replacing filing cabinet storage with compact mobile storage, it is possible to save 70% of your existing floor space. If 50m2 was reduced to 15m2, given a floor space rental cost of £600 per m2 per year, you could actually save £21,000 per year, every year.
No, mobile storage isn't difficult to maintain. We design our systems for low maintenance with "sealed for life" bearings, along with high quality running gear. Some high activity installations have been in use for many years without servicing - although we do recommend an annual service programme, as good housekeeping will ensure years of trouble-free use.
We use a variety of methods to ensure a suitable fixing, whether it is prior to a concrete screed being laid, or fixed to the floor of an existing computer room or mezzanine structure. (Please see our brochure for illustrations of track fixing designs).
We employ a safety formula for assessing the stability of a mobile shelving installation, which then determines whether overhead anti-tip rails are required to complement the standard track-based anti-tip mechanism.
All our mobile storage systems are relocatable, a feature that maintains the value of your investment as your needs change over time.
Our forte is designing mobile storage systems to fit any space, and we have not been beaten yet!
