On the surface, “high density storage” sounds like something every warehouse needs, doesn’t it?

Everyone has a ton of products they need to store somewhere, and a lot of people tend to equate “high density” with “high capacity”. This isn’t completely inaccurate – there’s a lot of room and a lot of things that can be stored on these shelves, and the increased capacity can help save room and decrease clutter in warehouses of any size.

But there’s a lot more that high density warehouse storage can do for your facility, and has a lot of specific usages it’s been designed for. Here’s a look at a few of the more common types of high density shelving and what they can do for your warehouse:

Multilevel Storage

What is it? Multi-level storage is a little like a mezzanine in that it adds an entirely new floor to your warehouse up above a previously-existing installation while increasing the amount of shelves you have on the plant floor. The design combines additional workspace and surfaces while adding durable shelves on the bottom to store heavy items and keep things organized underneath the flooring. Many types of multi-level storage replace the floor decking with additional shelving to add a wide range of shelving and storage options to any warehouse without sacrificing any more room down on the shop floor.
How can it be used? Any warehouse that needs additional floor space but can’t sacrifice any of the installations and storage it already has installed can install multilevel storage to increase their floor room without sacrificing anything it already needs in the

Mobile Aisle Shelving

What is it? Mobile aisle shelves are large shelves placed on motorized tracks designed to compact a large amount of storage into one smaller area. Moving along a single track, the shelves are individually operated and accessible from either side by moving the shelves next to it.
How can it be used? Mobile shelves tend to be ideal for long-term record storage, as the density of the shelves allows them to store even the heaviest boxes of documents for any business that needs to store physical copies of these records, like medical storage or auto repair facilities. It also works for retail storage to allow faster, more organized access to fast-selling items by keeping them separate from the rest of the inventory.

Push Back High Density Racking

What is it? Think of these as a denser version of pallet racks. Push-back racking allows you to store several pallets along the length of the racks, anywhere from 2 to 6 pallets deep, with the option to line these racks back-to-back to let you get to a maximum of 12 pallets in depth. The staggered pattern of the rack designs provides a high degree of safety and support for even the heaviest pallet loads, and the integrated designs allow you to store a large range of products and heavier items with much less risk of damage and injury.
How can it be used? In addition to the obvious benefits it brings any warehouse that deals in pallet racks, these racks are designed to allow a high level of access to products, so any warehouse that deals in large inventory quantities can benefit from the open design of these racks.
