Mobile Storage

We call it high density mobile storage. You’ll call it the best thing to ever happen to your storage.


No matter what industry you work in, chances are you use some type of storage solution everyday – files in a file cabinet, inventory on pallet racks, supplies or parts on a traditional metal or wooden shelf. The problem with these traditional, static storage solutions is that they leave no room for growth or change.


When the amount of stuff being stored in your space changes, your square footage stays exactly the same. Building, renovating, or leasing a new space is too costly to maintain over time. Suddenly, your warehouse, evidence room, library, office, or athletic storage room is overcrowded and disorganized – which can mean lower productivity, safety hazards, low morale, and ultimately, lost profits.


Mobile storage from Spacesaver is a simple idea that can help you store the same amount of stuff in a fraction of your current space, leaving you with room for more storage and the activities that will grow your business.

Traditional shelving wastes precious space with static aisles.
Place each shelf onto a mobile storage carriage and rail.
Eliminate all but one aisle with shelves that slide back and forth.

Standard Mobile Storage: Our most commonly-used solution with multiple design and access options.

For files, extra inventory, supplies, or virtually any storage need, standard mobile storage can help you compact your storage and create more space for additional offices, storage, or other activities. Mount shelves, drawers, cabinets, and more to create a system that works for your unique needs now and going forward.

ActivRAC Heavy Duty Mobile Storage: A solution for storing large or heavy items without facility expansion, heavy-duty mobile storage systems can accommodate 7,000 to 30,000 pounds per carriage.

ActivRAC is ideal for warehouse spaces, but can assist wherever a compact solution for heavy items are needed. Mounting new or existing pallet racking or shelving on mobile carriages allows you to utilize your entire floor space without sacrificing forklift access.

Wheelhouse Low-Profile Mobile Storage: The mobile storage option for maximum flexibility.

Whether you’re waiting on funding for a renovation or addition to your building, leasing a property, or just need the ability to easily reconfigure in the future, low-profile mobile storage can help. Spacesaver’s Wheelhouse® systems combine strength and adaptability in a low-profile, low-cost modular system that makes the most of every inch of space with a low install impact in cost and site disturbance.

Archival Storage: A mobile storage option for off-site and high-bay storage.

Archival storage allows you to store archival boxes and records floor to ceiling., allowing you to preserve current collections while making space to accept new items. XTend static and mobile high-bay shelving systems are the perfect choice for museums, libraries, and other archive facilities that need protection and accessibility, but don’t want to sacrifice space.

Lateral Bi-File: Maximize file storage.

By placing a row of sliding shelves in front of a row of stationary shelving, you can fit up to double the amount of file storage in the same footprint. Just slide the front shelves along a floor rail to access back rows. And with lightweight rails and movable floors, expansion and relocation are a breeze.

Modes of Operation


Ideal for lighter loads, a manual pull handle is a cost-effective option used to open and close individual aisles.


Aisles are accessed using a three-spoke rotating handle, which easily moves 4,000-10,000 pounds with just one pound of effort.


Move carriages with the touch of a button on a keypad.

Powered with Touch Technology Control™

Open aisles using control options on an intuitive LCD touchscreen.

Safety Features:

Safety sweeps come standard with every mobile system, and every aisle is required to have one floor sweep.


Photo Sweep (used with powered systems): An infrared light beam, unaffected by sunlight or ambient light extremes, projected the length of the carriage at its base stops system movement when broken by a person’s foot or other object.


Safety Sweep (used with mechanical assist systems): Provides full aisle protection for people and objects in the open aisles by automatically stopping carriage movement upon contact with a barrier.

Additional safety features can be added to your system including:

Aisle-Entry Sensor

When someone enters a closing aisle, cross-aisle sensors mounted 20 inches up from the carriage base stop the system from moving (for powered systems only).

Zero Force Sensor

By projecting multiple infrared photoelectric beams across an open aisle the full length of the carriage, the Zero Force Sensor (ZFS) system detects a person’s entry or presence in an open aisle and automatically locks down carriage movement (for powered systems only).
