Modes of Operation for High-Density Mobile Shelving

Choose Between 3 Control Options

Spacesaver’s compact storage systems eliminate wasted aisle space by mounting shelving, cabinets, or racking on “carriages” that move along rails. How do you open an aisle to retrieve items? That’s up to you! Choose from powered, mechanical assist or manual system control.

Spacesaver’s electric shelving systems are reliable, fast, and safe. You can activate system movement with the push of a button or the touch of an LCD screen, and then enter the aisle as it opens. These systems offer PIN or badge-swipe activation to maintain an audit trail and limit access to confidential or valuable items, and the “soft-start, soft-stop” feature is ideal for fragile objects.
