The Benefits of High Density Mobile Shelving – In The Office

Sometimes storage space is at an absolute premium, so you’ll want flexible, mobile storage to maximise the space available. On the other hand, your office might be located in a larger building, and when it comes to refurbishing or re-organising, moving the storage system can sometimes be a challenge, but not with high density mobile shelving from Flexistore.
Flexistore is the ideal modern day storage system. Whatever your requirements our high density mobile shelving can make reorganising your office easy and straight forward.
The high density mobile shelving has been designed to give flexibility to the modern day office while providing a reliable, space efficient storage system for the work premises.
Here are the main benefits of using high density mobile shelving
Flexistore Saves Space
Time and time again we have all heard stories of businesses needing to relocate due to space issues. Flexistore’s innovative track system can save wasted space by taking filing and storage systems and sipping them up into a far smaller space than traditional solutions – saving space time and of course money.
Flexistore is relocatable
This means it creates diversity and the shelving can be moved whenever required. By relocating the high density mobile shelving, it can be used to diversify the look of your premises whenever the need arises. And should you move office, you can relocate your storage system without any hassle.
Flexistore really is flexible
Imagine having a storage unit that can be adapted according to your needs. Whenever you need to extend the high density mobile shelving to create more storage space, then you can. The width and the length of the Flexistore can be easily altered or if you need to create more workspace, then Flexistore can be relocated or reduced in size without any problems.
Flexistore is cost effective
Relocating or refurbishing an office is an expensive enough time without having to pay the extra costs of hiring a specialist company to move bulky storage units. The system can be easily relocated without the need for additional expenses or paying for removal services, saving your company both time and stress.
Flexistore is contemporary
Flexistore is the perfect storage solution for the modern day office. It is designed to be used either on a concrete floor or a mezzanine floor, and wherever it is located, the high density mobile shelving is designed to work smoothly and efficiently while giving your work premises a modern, professional look.

SEMA Inspections

We undertook SEMA (Storage Equipment Manufacturers’ Association) inspections at several Ikea branches recently. As a companyCompact Storage – work to the SEMA guidelines. We identified and rectified several issues that related to the storage areas in the branches.

It is important to ensure that all storage is inspected regularly, as it can avoid dangerous and costly incidents. Issues of damage or fatigue can be identified at an early stage and rectified simply and effectively – minimising risk and costly repairs in the future.

Having your storage racking assessed may also be a requirement of your insurance company – so why not organise an inspection from Compact Storage.

Aspall Decide to "Shelve" Their Cider Range

When the Aspall Cyder company needed help to make the most from their storage facility in Suffolk – Compact Storage were the obvious choice. After discussion and survey it was agreed that we would use our pallet racking and “Deltastor” solutions to kit out their labelling area, and our pallet racking for their warehouse storage space. The Deltastor was an ideal choice for the labelling department as it’s not only constructed to the highest standards, it adapts easily to new storage challenges – and also represents to clients great value for money.

Our pallet racking system was also installed into Aspall’s warehousing to build upon their storage systems already in place. This improved their storage significantly – by improving access and volumes stored.

With a successful installation behind us – we are currently working with Aspall’s on other storage requirements in the near future.

How Custom Shelving Can Benefit Your Warehouse

Every business has its own individual needs and storage requirements, the set up for one work premises will be entirely different for another. With that in mind, the storage system that you choose for your warehouse needs to be designed to help you maximise the smooth running of your business.
Listed below are some of the benefits of investing in custom shelving for your warehouse.
Maximise your warehouse space
Space is often limited when it comes to warehouse storage so you’ll need a custom built warehouse shelving system that will give you as much warehouse space as possible.
One benefit of custom warehouse shelving is that it can maximise warehouse space. There will be occasions when you’ll need more storage space than others and with custom built shelving you can make the most of the warehouse space that you already have.
Custom shelving can help keep your organised
Having a space for everything will help ensure the smooth running of your warehouse. A custom system that has been set out especially for your storage needs will help keep everything organised. Custom warehouse shelving will create a stress free, easy to manage warehouse environment.
Uniformity and Safety
Using custom shelving means that each unit will have uniformity and will ensure that it complies with safety guidelines to help maximise the safety of your staff when they are using the warehouse premises.
Custom shelving is expandable and can be built upon as your business grows. If you need more storage space in your warehouse then it is simple to create by expanding the custom shelving as opposed to spending more money on having to adapt the warehouse facilities to create more space.
Our custom created, expandable warehouse units are a cost effective way of creating storage space in your warehouse. The custom shelving units mean that your business is provided with a customisable warehouse storage space so that you can adapt the warehouse space as needed without having to go to the additional costs of investing in a new storage system.

Projects in London, Kiev and Stuttgart completed

A London University required a BS5454 compliant storage solution in the most cost efficient format, to that end we reused existing shelves married to new framework and mobile bases dramatically reducing the clients spend by recycling existing components.
Matching existing furniture and storage for a regional office in Kiev helped ensure continuity of product even though the incumbent manufacturer was no longer trading, Compacts ability to replicate redundant supply proved invaluable to a client who needed to maintain a corporate look and feel to their office.

An international retailer with whom we have worked extensively in the UK and Europe required mobile storage for hanging garments, shoe wear and luggage for their new store in Stuttgart. The completed mobile system provided a larger front of store sales area whilst still accommodating their stock requirements.
