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. To learn how High-Density Mobile Systems could work for you, for the basics of maximizing your storage space.

The Impact of Mobile Shelving

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.

Safety Options

high density mobile shelving safety features

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

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.
