High Density Mobile Shelving: What Kind Is Right For You?

What is High Density Mobile Shelving? High-density mobile storage solves the common problems associated with traditional static shelves — they take up a fixed amount of space with aisles in between. As the amount of stuff you have in your space keeps growing and the square footage stays exactly the same, things become disorganized and overcrowded. As a result, it can lead to decreased productivity, low morale, safety hazards for employees, and ultimately, a negative effect on your bottom line.

Mobile storage eliminates fixed aisles to compact your storage space. It enables you to significantly increase your storage capacity and store the same amount of items in half the footprint. 

The question then arises… What kind of mobile shelving is best for your specific needs?

Mechanical Assist Mobile Shelving

Mechanical Assist Mobile Shelving is moved by simply turning an ergonomically designed, soft-touch, three spoke rotating handle.
