Racks are pulled or pushed with little effort and are vibration-free

With ceiling hung/floor guided racks, the load is transferred directly into the ceiling or floor via a steel support structure giving stability

Compactor Shelving

Compactor shelving systems, also known as mobile shelving, operate with carriages rolling on a track

These systems provide a very efficient high-density art storage system
