Save Space and Money With Industrial Mechanical Assist High-Density Shelving

industrial mechanical assist high density racksFor many businesses, especially warehouses, distribution hubs, and manufacturing plants, space is money. The more you can optimize your space, the more room you have to increase your storage capacity. At Southwest Solutions Group®, we offer a variety of high-density storage products. One of our most popular storage solutions is industrial mechanical assist high-density shelving. 

What Is Mechanical Mobile Shelving?

Mobile high-density shelving places high-capacity shelves on a track, allowing the shelves to move together. This system eliminates unused aisle space, often cutting required storage floor space in half. The number of shelves and access aisles will depend on the needs of your company.

High-density mobile shelving can operate using two different systems: a powered push-button system or a mechanical hand-crank system. 

How Rolling Hand Crank Storage Shelving Works

A hand crank control provides mechanical assistance when moving the shelves, making it easy for a single person to move up to six rows of shelving without a significant effort. The handle rotates smoothly to move several rows of shelves that can store thousands of pounds of weight. The hand crank’s three-spoke handle is ergonomically designed to make rotation quick and comfortable.

Safety Is a Priority

Our mechanical assist mobile systems include built-in safety features to avoid accidents and injuries. Each mechanical assist handle includes a safety lock with a visual indicator showing the lock/unlock status. When a user pushes in the safety pin, the handle locks in place and will not rotate, preventing the shelves from moving and protecting anyone or anything in the aisle. Several additional optional safety features are also available.
