High-Density Mobile Systems

Simply put, High-Density Mobile Systems (HDMS) allow you to store and do more. Unlike traditional static shelves that require a fixed amount of space, HDMS eliminates wasted aisle space to optimize your footprint and increase your capacity for more storage and/or workspace within the same square footage.

The Impact of Mobile Shelving

As your organization grows, so does its need for additional space. Without the real estate necessary to expand your footprint, your space can become overcrowded and unorganized, leading to decreased productivity, low morale, increased safety hazards, and ultimately, a negative effect on your bottom line. By mounting shelving or cabinets onto a carriage and rail system, High-Density Mobile Systems compact your storage space, enabling you to significantly increase your storage capacity and ability to do the things that can grow your business.

The Value of Local Expertise

A small team in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin introduced the concept of High-Density Mobile Storage Systems to the U.S. in 1972. Since then, our extensive network of storage experts and factory-certified technicians has provided unparalleled planning services, product installation, and long-term service and maintenance to users throughout the world.

Modes Of Operation

Spacesaver’s compact storage systems eliminate wasted aisle space by mounting shelving, cabinets, or racking on carriages that move along rails. Depending on your space and operational needs, we offer three control options to choose from:  manual, mechanical assist, or powered.

Powered

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. Powered controls Include Touch Technology, Gesture Control™ and TUSC™ Control App.

Mechanical Assist

Mobile shelving units are moved by simply turning an ergonomically designed, soft-touch, three spoke rotating handle. This handle allows users to move carriage weights of 4,000 to 10,000 lbs. with only one pound of effort. A variety of safety options are available for mechanical assist mobile storage systems.

Manual

Spacesaver manual mobile shelving systems are a cost-effective alternative to mechanical assist controls. Pulling the handle moves the carriage from side to side. Ideal for smaller mobile storage systems with lighter loads.
