These systems also work well in active storage and filing areas and when storing lightweight items. Manual Mobile Shelving Systems roll back and forth on floor tracks with the pull of the hand on the handle and are the most economical type of high capacity manual mobile shelving systems available.

Powered mobile systems are unique in more than one way, but the biggest difference that sets them apart is that they are powered by electricity. Users open system aisles with a simple push of a button or press of a touchscreen. These systems are designed to increase productivity in active systems. They provide state-of-the-art technology and safety for users along with maximum storage densities, and they offer a broad array of safety features and programmable functions. Powered systems are ideal for high-access applications where maximum reliability, security and protection of stored materials are key concerns. Below you can see it being used in a very unique way. This library wanted to include a gift shop, but didn’t want it to take up too much space. With the help of a storage expert they designed this high density mobile powered system that functions as a well-lit and appealing gift shop during the day, and completely shuts and locks down at night – with the touch of a button!
Heavy-duty mobile racking is ideal for warehouses, frozen warehouses, cold storage facilities, and any location that requires a compact storage solution for heavy items. Mobilized Storage System eliminates idle aisles by mounting existing pallet racking or shelving onto mobile carriages that move along rails. These carriages have a load capacity of 7,000 to 30,000 lbs and are fitted with a host of safety and security features. Below you can see it being used in a materials management facility. This particular facility wasn’t sold on the high-density concept entirely so they decided to only replace five of their static pallet racks to start. From only replacing five stacks with mobile pallet racking they saw a 70% gain in storage capacity and a 15% gain in efficiency. Needless to say they quickly outfitted their entire facility with High Density Mobile.
Last but not least, let’s talk about our newest storage solution: Suspended Mobile Shelving. This innovative twist on traditional mobile has been taking the k-12 education, athletic, town recreation department, and central sterile hospital markets by storm – but it’s applicable to so many more. By suspending shelves on an overhead track, the aisles of the system compact to greatly increase the capacity of your storage without expanding the footprint of your space – and without a major construction project. The rail-less design and steel construction make it durable for years of use, while the configurability makes it easy to add onto and relocate. A variety of accessories are available to help you keep your stuff organized, no matter what that stuff may be. Below you can see it being used in a maintenance storage area in a hospital.
