Roller Racking and Mobile Shelving – What are the benefits of this Storage System?

What kind of pallet racking and shelving is best for your needs? We look at roller racking to see where it’s most effective and discuss its major advantages

Roller Racking Space Saving

Roller racking, or mobile shelving, systems can be one of the most useful and cost effective storage solutions in manufacturing and retail set ups. The greatest advantage of these units is that they deliver high-density and compact storage for a relatively small outlay.

Most importantly, roller racking systems save space. For any warehouse or storage environment, space is a huge concern. However, what sets roller racking apart is that it delivers instant accessibility to all the goods and products stocked by a business. This is vital for retail environments and industrial premises where speedy access to goods is of paramount importance.

Roller Racking Track Mechanisms

Roller racking systems are located on tracks that move along the floor space. This means that there is only ever the need for one access aisle. Whenever an item is required the operators can move the roller racking units apart, using a pull handle. This creates an access aisle adjacent to the shelving bay where the item is located.

Two types of mechanisms are available for creating the aisles: pull handles can either be hand-operated or powered by electric motors with push button controls.

This type of roll-aside shelving is especially useful in smaller offices or in awkwardly shaped spaces like corridors or alcoves.

Because mobile shelving systems are mounted on low-profile mobile bases and tracks, access to the storage units behind is gained by simply rolling the units aside.

The Advantage of Roller Racking

When properly installed, roller racking can transform any industrial or retail business making it considerably more efficient.

Roller and mobile racking not only ensures that a business uses all its available space as effectively as possible, it will enables the business to increase its stockroom capacity and ensure that damage to stock is minimised by reducing the number of write-offs.

Furthermore, roller racking systems are also able to double the sales floor area in a retail environment, making stock recognition and stock-taking easier and clearer.
