Mobile shelving racks

Up to twice the capacity of the archive or warehouse compared to the traditional layout of stationary shelving racks can be achieved by placing VARIMO shelving racks on a movable chassis. Mobile compact shelving racks are created with the combination of chassis and superstructure from VARIMO system. This modern form of storage is designed for use in archives, warehouses where stock is moved manually, tool dispensers and spare parts, all kinds of operations, warehouses and wherever it is necessary to store unpacked goods. Mobile shelving racks can be installed in both newly-built premises as well as already existing premises where the storage technology needs to be increased.

Mobile racks from VARIMO

The mobile shelving racks are moved by means of a steering wheel, which is coupled to the drive wheels via chain gear. The shelving rack chassis wheels roll on rails placed on the floor or that are embedded into the floor. The rails mounted on the existing floor are fitted with wedges, if necessary, the space between them is filled with the levelling floor. The number of track rails is determined by the length of the chassis, possibly due to the load on the chassis, as well as their relative position. The length of the rails is derived from the size of the shelving rack blocks.

The chassis dimensions and its load capacity is determined by the size, configuration and the shelving rack superstructure’s planned load. The mobile shelving racks can be fitted with a laminated chipboard or cover sheet at the front and back.
