Fixed Track Mechanical

Fixed Track Mechanical

Engineered and designed for high volume and high access loads, CSM Fixed Track Rolling Storage Systems (Mobile Shelving – ‘Compactus style’) are purpose built for multi-track and heavy duty applications. As CSM designs and  engineers fixed track units in house using sophisticated 3D modelling we work with clients to customise units to the each client’s unique requirements. This wealth of experience over 40 years is essential particuliarly in storage of Cultural Collections, Libraries, Museum, Art, specimens and Artifacts.

Available in manual, mechanical or electronic powered operation, each unit is purpose built and  manufactured and installed by CSM to ISO 9001.

Manual units require minimal effort to move and are ideal for mid level weight loads or areas where a completely level access floor is required free from any raised tracks. This is particularly important consideration for DDA compliance or trolley access is required for sensitive and fragile  Specimens, Library book storage,  Museum, artifacts, Cultural Collections and artwork.

Units that are particularly large or used to store heavy items often require mechanical or electronic operation. Multi-track units over 2400 mm wide, even in an office environment should have mechanical drive on multiple tracks for longevity, ease of use and operator safety.

Bolted to the floor and grouted for support the tracks incorporate anti-tilt safety within the guide wheel channel.  Ramps and structural infill floors can be designed to be full Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant which further enhances the system, making it perfect for high density storage for the modern office, back of house applications or storage of cultural collections.  Level structural floors and ramps allow client specified floor coverings to seamlessly integrate units into any environment.

Tracks may also be recessed into floors during the building phase offering a completely level floor utilising the floor covering. This is especially important for cultural collections and sensitive specimen storage to provide a complete level surface for trolleys and for cleaning or pest control. CSM Fixed Track ramps are normally designed within the foot print of the bays preventing trip hazards that are common with other available systems.
