Why are Wire Shelving Racks Used for Storing Sterile Inventory?
Wire shelving racks are often used for storage in clean rooms, sterile processing departments, and central sterile supply areas because they are easy to keep clean in places that require sterilization. Additionally, wire shelving
- promotes better air circulation, which reduces moisture and heat
- offers better visibility because light can pass through the shelves
- easier to clean up accidental spills
- protects stored items from dust and contamination
- increases fire protection because liquids can reach materials
The biggest downside to using wire shelving racks for sterile inventory storage is that they take up a lot of room. And clean rooms, sterile processing departments, and central sterile supply areas all face the dilemma of adequate storage space just like many other businesses.
Other Challenges Faced Storing Sterile Inventory
The sterile inventory is often wrapped, but the risk posed is that the wrapping can tear, which in effect just ruins the entire sterilization process. Converting to a container system solves this problem; however, the containers take up a lot more space.
Another issue that frequently comes up is the product rotation of sterile inventory stock. Products need to be kept fresh, clean, and up-to-date. Creating a system for rotating stock is important even in a busy environment.

Lateral Mobile Wire Shelving Racks are the Best Storage Solution
With all these hurdles to overcome it’s hard to find the right storage system for sterile inventory. Lateral mobile wire shelving racks will not only meet your storage requirements, but they will also foster increased efficiencies for your clean rooms, sterile processing departments, and central sterile supply areas.
The lateral mobile wire shelving racks system consists of two rows of wire shelving racks. The front row is placed on tracks and slides back and forth to provide access to the stationary back row of wire shelving racks. For a larger system, one or two additional rows can be added to the front that also move on tracks.
What this does is maximizes storage space by eliminating aisles. Instead of having an aisle in between each row of wire shelving racks, you can compact shelving to maximize storage. Now, you can afford to keep sterile inventory stored in containers without worrying about the additional space requirements.
In addition, the lateral mobile wire shelving racks system promotes an easy and efficient way to cycle sterile inventory stock. Items can be rotated from the back to the front to keep them up-to-date.
