Compact Your Storage and Save Space

Mobile Shelving, aka compactor shelving, is ideal for replacing stationary lateral filing systems when you need more capacity but you have no extra space to add shelving

The available existing space is compacted - meaning the storage density is increased by putting shelving on rolling carriages that compact together

Mobile shelving is well suited for high-density storage needs

The core component of Compactor Shelving are the carriages that provide a base to house shelving, drawers, racks, racking, and/or cabinetry and multiple accessories

Carriages are installed on a level surface and glide along a rail

The patented rail design allows for heavily loaded carriages to move smoothly and securely without much effort
