installing compact shelving tracks

The first step in installing a compact shelving system is laying out the tracks on to floor surface. After the tracks are properly spaced, the tracks are leveled with a laser level. It is very important to get the compact shelving tracks level so "free drifting" or unmanned rolling of the shelving carriages does not occur. Once the tracks are properly placed and leveled, they are anchored to the floor.

The next step in the installation process is installing the rolling carriages on top of the tracks. Once the rolling carriages are built and set in place, one of three types of compact shelving control mechanisms (push-button, 3-spoke mechanical-assist handles, or manual pull handles) are installed to the operating end of the compact shelving carriages or both ends of the shelving carriages if the system is a dual access system. Finally the shelving is mounted on top of the carriages and the installation is complete.
