Static Shelving or Mobile Shelving: which suits your workplace? January 14, 2019

Shelving is an essential form of storage that can be used to hold a high volume of goods safely and securely within any premises.

At Rackline, we offer both static and mobile shelving units that can be custom-made to suit the needs of your business or organisation and the building in which a business operates.

Here we look at these two popular forms of shelving installation and how they are suited to different workplaces.

Static Shelving

As the name suggests, Static Shelving units are fitted into a set position and held in place to offer a permanent structure and stability. These installations are often favoured for use in open storage environments such as libraries and warehouses where a high volume of items must be stored.

A key advantage of our Proform Static Shelving installations is that they can be manufactured to meet the exact dimensions required by our clients, maximising space and usability in any environment.

Because they have no protruding edges, our Static Shelving systems are also perfect for storing stock or precious goods such as books and manuscripts, as there is no fear of damage or snagging.

Mobile Shelving

Mobile Shelving represents a perfect way of increasing storage capacity within a workplace without having to sacrifice the volume of storage available.

Favoured in work environments where floor space is at a premium, Mobile Shelving systems operate on an inbuilt trackway, meaning the space normally required for aisle access is created when the containers are moved, reducing the amount of space required by up to 70% when compared to a static alternative.

Rackline offer two types of manual mobile shelving systems and two types of powered shelving systems, click here to find out more.
