What is High-Density Mobile Shelving?

Simply put, it’s a way to store more in less space. In order to talk about high-density mobile shelving (also called mobile storage or compact storage), we first have to talk about traditional static storage. Traditional shelving is the standard for almost any space where things are stored. Think of all of the spaces you inhabit on a daily basis, and we’re willing to bet you see a fair amount of static bookshelves, filing cabinets, and storage containers.


The challenge with static storage is that it takes up a fixed amount of space, whether it’s in a library, an evidence room at a police station, an athletic equipment room, or a warehouse. As businesses and industries shift to accommodate demand, the amount of stuff being housed in your particular space keeps changing, while the square footage stays exactly the same. And, if you don’t have the money to expand your space, there’s a good chance it’s overcrowded and unorganized, which leads to a whole other set of issues—decreased productivity, low morale, safety hazards for employees, and ultimately, a negative effect on your bottom line.


It might seem crazy to think that high-density mobile shelving can solve these issues, but it’s true. Mobile storage systems eliminate fixed aisles, creating movable aisles that can compact your storage space. A simple concept that enables you to store the same amount of items in half the footprint. In the other half of that space? The room to do the things that can grow your business.

Static Shelving

Conventional stationary shelving requires fixed aisles that waste space.
