Do you have an “out of sight, out of mind” mentality about your off-site storage?
Storing goods away from your main facilities doesn’t make those things any less important or less susceptible to inefficiency. If traditional static shelving options leave you desiring more, imagine what your off-site storage would be capable of with HI-BAY MOBILE from Montel.
In the industrial spaces where high-density storage performs the greatest service – warehouses, off-site storage facilities and the like – all business must be built from the foundation of safety.
While the latest U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports indicate the rates of fatal and non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses in the private sector are decreasing, facilities managers and site supervisors can’t let their guards down. After all, any number higher than zero is not worth celebrating.
You don’t have to hit the gym to feel strong; Montel can help you move mountains (of inventory) in seconds without breaking a sweat.
Sounds crazy, right? Well, as the world’s leading experts in high-density mobile storage solutions, we’re not ones to back down from any challenge, even one as big as this one. Today, we’d like to highlight an underrepresented but valuable feature of our mechanical-assist Mobilex shelving system: the ability to effortlessly move multiple carriages at once.
The following video features Mobilex renowned to be the smoothest mechanical-assist mobile storage system in the industry. You will notice in this video a retail store employee moving effortlessly at once 4 x 36 feet long mobile carriages. Let’s do the Mobilex maths:
1,000 lb per linear foot
x 36 feet long carriages for this application (36,000 lb load capacity per carriage)
x 4 Carriages
= 144,000 lb total weight load capacity
The user shown in this video could potentially move 144,000 lb with one hand! Unbelievable…. isn’t.
Imagine how more productive a retail store can be if the staff is capable of moving multiple units at once vs. other systems where each mobile shelving unit would need to be moved one at a time. The fact that employees are more productive with a Mobilex system in any back store obviously means additional sales.
With its unique gear ratio and the superior quality of its components, Montel can easily claim to have the best recipe for the smoothest operating mobile shelving storage system.
Internationally acclaimed management school HEC Montréal has it all – a beautiful campus, diverse student body and innovative educative resources.
What HEC Montréal didn’t have, however, was a state-of-the-art library storage system, one that met the high academic standards set by faculty and allowed learners to take full advantage of its collection of 300,000 monograph reference books and 1,400 periodicals.
History Colorado provides the Denver community with a link to the past through expansive collections of archived documents, photographs and sundry artifacts. It is a commitment the organization has upheld for nearly 150 years.
But with such a varied catalog of sensitive items to curate and protect, the popular historical society, museum and educative center needed more from its storage area. See for yourself how Montel helped History Colorado completely reinvent its museum and anthropological storage with SmartShelf 4-Post hybrid shelving and a Mobilex mobile shelving system.
Even storage experts like us can admit that not everything belongs on a shelf. Some items are too long, too thin, too cumbersome to sit sideways on a shelf with any efficiency whatsoever.
But what are your other options? Stand these items in a bunch at the corner of the storeroom where people will trip over them? Of course not.
Instead, we suggest you invest in Montel’s hanging storage solutions, which affix to existing Montel shelving products or directly to a wall. With customizable crossbars and rods capable of countless configurations, hanging storage has the power to store anything with unusual dimensions effortlessly.
Steve Jobs loved whiteboards, or so the legend goes. It’s hard to imagine the late mastermind behind Apple and Pixar without a whiteboard as his backdrop.
Montel actually designed a Mobilex mobile shelving for Apple headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., complete with – you guessed it – full-length whiteboards as the end panels.
Every 23 seconds a fire department somewhere in the country responds to an alarm, according to 2015 averages from the U.S. National Fire Protection Association.
Will your fire department be the next to answer the call? And will your fire equipment storage help you reach victims in time, or will it hold you back?
Montel recently finished work on two sliding art rack storage systems for the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver, Colorado, an institution honoring and preserving the work of the eponymous American painter who stood at the forefront of the abstract expressionist movement in the late 1940s.
With more than 800 paintings in need of innovative racking – as well as letters, sketchbooks and other materials belonging to the artist – Montel designed and installed custom storage solutions that achieve a perfect balance between efficiency, usefulness and conservation.
Safety should always be a chief concern among business leaders.
Protecting employees from accidents in the workplace is not only the right thing to do morally, it’s one of the most cost-effective commitments an employer can make. According to research from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, American businesses spend an estimated $1 billion every week on workers’ compensation payments alone. Yikes! That can’t be good for the company checkbook or a brand’s reputation.
