When Should You Use Mobile Shelving and Racking?
Understanding when you should use mobile shelving and racking can help you create a more efficient and productive work environment. At Commander Warehouse, we know how important it is to have the right storage solutions for your specific business needs. That is why we offer a range of warehouse equipment, including mobile shelving and racking, for smaller business spaces.
The Best Uses for Mobile Shelving and Racking
While mobile shelving and racking systems are available in a selection of different shapes and sizes, they are best used for storing files, stocks, and other administrative products in smaller work environments. Mobile shelving and racking systems, also known as roller racking systems or mobile aisle shelving, allows for a high-volume storage in half the amount of space as traditional shelving units.
The Benefits of Using Mobile Shelving and Racking
Some of the main benefits of using mobile shelving and racking systems include:
1. Greater Storage Space Efficiency
Mobile shelving and racking systems can help a business increase its storage capacity by 100% or reduce the current storage footprint by 50%. Compared to lateral filing cabinets, mobile shelving and racking systems offer a higher level of storage space without sacrificing on ease of accessibility.
2. Effective Growth Accommodation
Programmable powered mobile shelving and racking systems offer greater long-term storage benefits than other types of shelving systems. This is because you can easily add or remove sections of your mobile shelving and racking systems to accommodate the growth of the business.
3. Improved Productivity
Finding materials or files stored in mobile shelving and racking systems is extremely easy. This means that your employees will be able to find what they need quickly, freeing up time for more important daily tasks.
4. Customizable Storage Options
All mobile shelving and racking systems can be easily configured to fit the specific storage needs of your business. Deep shelves and heavy-duty carriages can handle large boxes and heavy loads, while preconfigured measurements will ensure that you receive the perfect storage solutions for your filing requirements.
5. Increased Storage Security
Powered mobile shelving and racking systems are available with electronic locking devices or remote access. This ensures that only someone with the proper authority can open aisles with sensitive materials.
6. Greater Accessibility
Mobile shelving and racking systems provide an increased density of stored materials, allowing them to be brought closer to where you need them most. This also provides easier access to the items you need, right when you need them, and helps improve employee efficiency.
7. Cost-Effective Storage Solution
Compared to a traditional filing system, mobile shelving and racking systems can provide more storage in the same space at a similar cost or with similar storage space for a much lower cost, while increasing the amount of free floor space.
