What is High-Density Mobile Shelving?

 

Simply put, it’s a way to store more in less space. We’re all familiar with traditional static shelves—but the challenge with static storage is that it takes up a fixed amount of space. The amount of stuff being housed in your work space or storage area keeps growing, while the square footage stays exactly the same.

If you don’t have the money to expand your space to accommodate those items, 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.

High-density mobile storage solves all of these challenges. By mounting shelving or cabinets onto a carriage and rail system, mobile storage eliminates fixed aisles to compact your storage space. It’s a simple concept that enables you to significantly increase your storage capacity or 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.

Product Types
PRODUCT TYPES
STANDARD MOBILE SHELVING

Our most widely-used high-density option, available in a variety of controls and safety options.

HEAVY-DUTY MOBILE SHELVING

Load capacities of 7,000—30,000 pounds per carriage make this the go-to solution for storing large or heavy items without facility expansion.

LOW-PROFILE MOBILE SHELVING

Carriage aisles are accessed with the press of a button for optimum reliability and ease of use.

OFF-SITE MOBILE SHELVING

Moving some of your storage to an offsite, mobile high-bay shelving system frees up space in your building.

Safety Options
SAFETY OPTIONS
Photo Sweep safety option for Powered Operation
PHOTO SWEEP®

An infrared light beam, unaffected by sunlight or ambient light extremes, projected the length of the carriage at its base stops system movement when broken by a person’s foot or other object.

Safety Sweep for Mechanical Assist Operation
SAFETY SWEEP

Spacesaver’s mechanical safety sweep provides full aisle protection for people and objects in the open aisles of high-density mobile storage systems by automatically stopping carriage movement upon contact with an obstacle.

AISLE ENTRY SENSOR

If a person enters a closing aisle, cross-aisle sensors mounted 20 inches (508 mm) up from the carriage base stop the system from moving.

ZERO FORCE SENSOR®

By projecting multiple infrared photoelectric beams across an open aisle the full length of the carriage, the Zero Force Sensor (ZFS®) system detects a person’s entry into a moving aisle or presence in an open aisle and automatically locks down carriage movement.
