accessibility for all
Achieving ADA accessibility compliance can be as easy as installing high density mobile storage in your facility. The high density mobile systems can provide people with physical disabilities access to materials, files, and inventory in a way that complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and in less space than conventional static storage systems.
Storage accessibility is addressed in the Title III Nondiscrimination on The Basis of Disability By Public Accommodations and in the Commercial Facilities section of the ADA. More importantly, accessible storage areas allow all workers, with or without short-term or permanent disabilities, to be more productive and contribute to their full potential at work.
how the mobile systems promote ADA compliance
The high density mobile storage systems feature storage units, such as shelving, mounted on wheeled carriages that run on tracks in the floor. Unlike static storage that requires access aisles between each shelving unit, the mobile systems only require one access aisle at a time and compact together when not in use. This reduces the amount of floor space required by 50% or more, and can increase filing capacity by as much as 300%. These savings directly translate to more convenience, time savings in storage and retrieval, and less cost in space related to construction, rent, and utilities.
Additionally, items stored in mobile storage are easily seen or felt and can be retrieved quickly. Employees don't need to rifle through file drawers, closets, or boxes to find what they need. Adding end-tab color codes or alphabetizers further speeds up file retrieval efficiency.
High density mobile storage is versatile and flexible enough to store and protect almost anything: files, file folders, office supplies, X-rays and other medical records, legal records, component parts, electronic parts, and more. The system is also modular so it can be moved, expanded, or reconfigured as your needs change.
