high capacity mobile shelving and rack systemsHigh-capacity mobile shelving & rack systems for improved efficiency

An improved way of storing valuable archives and artwork was needed. The static shelving being used for a collection provided limited space capacity for storage and posed a serious security risk. To save space and secure art collections more efficiently, a combination of high-capacity mobile shelving and rack systems replaced what was already in place. This would allow for the storing of inventory to be better accommodated and create easier point-of-access when retrieval was needed. Damage to the frames and artwork surfaces would also be less frequent because the newer storage units were designed with enough storage capacity to accommodate a wide range of items. In this case, however, they were used to establish a central storage location for difficult-sized artworks, archival boxes, library books, bankers’ boxes, ledger books, and photos.

High-capacity mobile shelving & rack systems for increased security

save space and secure art collectionsTo enhance security, the high-capacity mobile shelving was equipped with a locking audit trail touchpad. With its installation, it effectively worked to protect stored inventory. This is because it functions using a pin to access the aisles. Keeping track of inventory was also made easier because it links back to an audit trail memory retention program and software interface. Since both the high-capacity mobile shelving and rack systems are more flexible than the existing fixed storage, it made getting inventory out of the basement and closer to the point of need for increased productivity easier. In addition, both systems save space and secure art collections with improved accuracy because they come together using less floor space for storage and separate by pressing a button or pulling a handle. In doing so, the need for excess aisles is eliminated, while only one or two aisles are accessed at a time for increased security. Their ability to do this is credited to the fact that each move along floor tracks, providing additional storage capacity and increased access when needed.

mobile shelving & racks safeguard against damage

Not only did the high-capacity mobile shelving and racks save space and secure art collections, but they also helped to keep inventory more organized and free from water damage. The high-capacity mobile shelving, in particular, was outfitted with a water diversion kit complete with rubber gaskets that cover the front panel gap between carriages. It prevents water from seeping through when the system is closed. The job of selecting pieces was made easier by using the racking systems. This is because they provided an increased level of visibility for artwork ranging in size from 12″ x 12″ to 6′ x 8′.
