Gliding Storage Shelves and Industrial Glide Shelving on Rails Save Floor Space and Increase Productivity

Gliding storage shelves or glider cabinets is shelving that rolls on rails to save floor space and increase productivity. Industrial glider cabinets provide several space and productivity benefits to help your business operate efficiently. First, gliding storage shelves will allow you to store more materials and parts in less floor space. Maximizing your storage floor space will reduce overhead costs like energy consumption and make room for more productive floor space. One example, is a manufacturing company that installed gliding storage shelves on rails next to their manufacturing line to store more parts where needed and eliminate unnecessary trips to retrieve parts from remote storage areas. By installing glider cabinets next to the manufacturing line they were able to increase productivity and throughput of manufactured products (view photos of industrial glide shelving on rails).

Glider cabinets can also save you from unnecessary construction costs like the manufacturing company that wanted to install a new production line but didn’t have the floor space. The company was planning a addition to their building when they discovered glider cabinets. Instead of initiating a new and costly addition to their building, they consolidated and compacted their storage shelving into several gliding storage systems providing enough floor space to add the new production line at about a quarter of the cost.
