How does Mobile Shelving work?

Typical shelving has aisles between each unit, taking up precious space. To guide the mobile units, our tracks are installed underneath the shelving. Steel Carriages with wheels are mounted underneath the shelving. Crank Handles drive the wheels, and can be finished with decorative end panels. The system is then mounted with guide wheels on the tracks. This allows the shelving to be closely packed, eliminating wasted aisle space.

Mobile Shelving Options:

Manual: A handle on the end of each shelving unit is used to roll carriages back and forth

Mechanical: Geared chain hand crank to move heavier loads with relative ease

Electric: The user pushes a button to access the carriages

Have You Outgrown Your Space?

Mobile shelving allows two to three times the storage over conventional filing systems. At the current cost of building construction, the space saving justifies the cost within a year or two as compared to building out the space required by traditional cabinets.
