High-density mobile shelving allows you to store more in less space while improving your company’s accessibility, organization, and ergonomics. If you want to shrink your storage footprint dramatically, then a high-density mobile storage system is the right solution for you. Learn how high-density mobile shelving can be implemented in libraries to dramatically save space.
How Does High-Density Storage Work?
When you invest in mobile shelving, new or existing rolling high-capacity shelves are placed on mobile carriages attached to floor tracks. The moving shelves compact together, removing all but one or two access aisles, depending on your activity level. To access a specific aisle, turn the handle or push a button to move up to six aisles at once. It’s a fast, easy, and surprisingly simple solution that is quick to install and saves a ton of space.
High-Density Mobile Storage Vs. Static Storage
Not sure if compact shelving is worth the investment? Consider how much extra space your static shelving takes up due to the aisles between each shelving unit. In most cases, only 20% of your aisles are in use at any given time. These unnecessary aisles waste valuable real estate and make it more time-consuming for your employees to find what they need.
If your storage needs continue to grow over time, you may eventually have to resort to an offsite storage area, which results in more costs and effort to transfer items from your facility. High-density shelving gets rid of unused space, allows you to keep all your items together in a central location, and can eliminate the need to invest in expensive and inconvenient offsite storage.
