Montel is pleased to introduce its latest video featuring Mobilex renown to be the smoothest mechanical-assist mobile storage system in the industry:
You will see in this video a retail sore 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)
= 144,000 lb total load capacity for 4 carriages.
With its unique gear ratio and the superior quality of other components, Montel can claim to have the best recipe for the smoothest operating mobile storage system.
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.
How does Mobilex do it?
As you may already know, mobile shelving installations like Mobilex condense your storage footprint by eliminating aisles. Users can retrieve items from any shelf by simply turning the ergonomic hand cranks. No matter how heavy the inventory you stock on a shelving unit, it only takes a single pound of pressure to operate the hand crank.
What about multiple units at once? Still, all it takes is one pound of applied pressure to slide an entire inventory out of the way to get at the things you need in the moment. That’s why we call them “mechanical-assist” storage solutions, after all.
Why does this feature matter going into 2017?
With the new year right around the corner, now is the best time to explore this feature with you. Why? Because if the many retail trends for 2017 hold true, industry leaders and hopefuls will need mobile storage with painless, multi-carriage movement.
Tightening up brick-and-mortar operations
According to a recent report from The Wall Street Journal, many big-name retailers have seen considerable returns on investment by optimizing inventory. While that may mean cutting down on SKU volumes, it also signals a change from a “the more, the merrier” philosophy in stocking products to a greater emphasis on service and organization.
With fully adjustable shelves on all Mobilex installations, any space retailers once used to hold goods can be converted to neatly store other important workplace tools like promotional materials or cleaning supplies. So whether your employees head to the stockroom to grab 2017’s hottest selling product or a mop to tidy up Aisle 5, they always deliver excellent service to your customers thanks to Mobilex’s versatility and the ability to move multiple shelves at once.
