Why ADA Compliance Matters in Your Storage Area
High density mobile shelving gives people with physical disabilities access to materials and files in a way that complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). What’s more, mobile shelving maximizes floor space much better than conventional stationary storage systems.
More important than just meeting the ADA requirements is the fact that high density mobile shelving offers convenient, accessible storage to help create an environment where individuals with disabilities (as well as those without) can contribute to their full potential. Making facilities accessible benefits not only people who are permanently disabled, but also those who are temporarily disabled because of accident or illness, getting them back to productive work.
How High Density Mobile Shelving Maximizes Floor Space
High density mobile shelving features storage units mounted on wheeled carriages that move along tracks in the floor. Rather than having to allow for an access-width aisle between each storage unit, mobile shelving creates the aisle wherever the operator wants access.
By compacting storage units, the space savings is significant. Switching from stationary storage to High density mobile shelving reduces the amount of floor space required by 50 percent or more. This allows more storage to be located in smaller areas and/or near the workstations where they are needed, thus reducing the amount of travel required for access.
