Storage solution with mobile shelving

The Brief
An international firm specialising in perfume creation required a 'one off' storage solution to store almost 65,000 small phials of liquid in a secure space of 6 m x 3 m, while keeping them upright, at a set temperature and separated to prevent possible damage.


The Mobile Shelving Project

We designed a bespoke mobile shelving system using a combination of three manufacturers' products to achieve the ultimate in cost-effective safe storage of this volume of valuable liquid in a chiller room.

The mechanically assisted mobile system incorporated Industrial Angle uprights and steel shelves with clad sides and rear, all of which were bolted to ensure maximum rigidity.

We fitted a series of heavy-duty pullout drawers into the shelving, with ball bearing-assisted easy-glide runners, which all had label holders on the front for identification.

In the drawers we inserted specially manufactured stainless steel 2 part carriers, with pre-punched holes to take the phials, and a carrying handle. This enabled the easy retrieval and subsequent relocation of up to 55 bottles at a time.

We have received numerous enquiries for this type of system since the installation from as far away as Trinidad and Tobago.
