Mobile Carriage Systems
Lateral Manual Mobile Storage System’s ideal applications are office/filing, medical records and supply storage environments. This system’s configuration consists of a rear row of stationary shelving plus 1 row (Bi-File) or 2 rows (Tri-File) of mobile units installed in front. To access the rear row of files, simply push the mobile units to the side. The lateral movement of this system allows for 50% of stored materials to be exposed at all times. This system is available with an option modular deck designed to simplify expansion and relocation. The Lateral Manual Mobile System has a weight capacity of 3,000 lbs. per carriage. Shelving options include File Drawers, Four-Post Style and Rivet Style Shelving. This system is available with “V” Groove Track, which is ADA Compliant. An Anti-Tip safety feature is mandatory with this system. The EZ-Trak Anti-Tip is the most popular anti-tip system for this storage solution. Additional anti-tip options are In-Track Anti-Tip, Z-Rail Anti-Tip and Overhead Anti-Tip Systems.
Standard Manual Compacting Mobile Storage System eliminates unnecessary aisles between each unit increasing storage capacity by as much as 80% and also increases floor space by as much as 50% at 1/3 the cost! This system is best used in applications such as, light-weight filing and retail applications (shoe, apparel, handbags). The maximum system length is 12’ with an overall weight capacity of 3,000 lbs. per carriage. Shelving options include Four-Post , Tab, Wire, Rivet Style Shelving, File Drawers and Storage Cabinets. This system is available with Flat Track or “V” Groove Track, both which are ADA Compliant. The anti-tip options are EZ-Trak Anti-Tip, In-Track Anti-Tip, Z-Rail Anti-Tip and Overhead Anti-Tip Systems.
Heavy Duty Manual Carriage, while similar to the Standard Manual Carriage, is an intermediate carriage with a more robust frame. It utilizes a larger base and wheels for ease of movement when heavier loads are applicable. It is the best manual option when storing materials such as furnishings, densely stored supplies, “small-box” storage, large record or filing storage. It is recommended that the Heavy Duty Manual Carriage be used at 12’ and under, as well as, when loads can reach up to 3,000 lbs. This carriage can handle more weight; however, it is a matter of what the average person can move comfortably without mechanical assistance. Shelving options include Four-Post , Tab, Wire and Rivet Style Shelving. This carriage can also accommodate File Drawers, Storage Cabinets, Light and Heavy Duty Pallet Rack and Bulk Rack. This system is available with Flat Track which is ADA Compliant. The anti-tip options are In-Track Anti-Tip, Z-Rail Anti-Tip and Overhead Anti-Tip Systems.
Mechanical-Assist Carriage takes advantage of the robust frame of the Heavy Duty Manual Carriage and incorporates a drive shaft which runs the entire length of the carriage to assure a smooth responsive movement, eliminating “lag time” or “sway”. The 16:1 gear ratio allows access to be virtually effortless with the simple turn of the ergonomically designed handle. The Mechanical-Assist Mobile System is applicable when carriage weights exceed 3,000 lbs. or 12’ in length. The overall weight capacity is 900 lbs. per linear foot of carriage. The recommended maximum carriage length is 24’, applications beyond this length should be approved by Pipp. In addition to previously stated storage situations, ideal opportunities for this system are “big-box” storage environments, X-Ray, archival storage, apparel and shoe storage, equipment and warehouse storage. It also can be used as a matter of preference. Shelving options include Four-Post, Tab, Wire, Rivet Style Shelving, File Drawers, Storage Cabinets, Light and Heavy Duty Pallet Rack and Bulk Rack. This system is available with Flat Track which is ADA Compliant. The anti-tip options are In-Track Anti-Tip, Z-Rail Anti-Tip and Overhead Anti-Tip Systems.
Electrical Compacting Mobile Storage System’s modular design requires minimal on-site mechanical assembly. Electrically, the majority of the wiring is completed at the factory; only 7 electrical connections are required per carriage during installation. One 20 amp circuit can run 5 carriages. The system is UL approved and uses standard industrial components. The carriages can be operated in a manual and automatic cycle. Each carriage has 3 safety systems; lower photo eye, optional upper photo eye and stall sensor. This system is typically used in large retailer, “big-box”, library, equipment, warehouse and industrial storage environments. The maximum carriage length is 40’ with a depth of 72” and an overall weight capacity of 45,000 lbs. Shelving options include Light and Heavy Duty Pallet Rack and Bulk Rack. This system is available with Floor Mounted Flat Track or In-Ground Flat Track. The anti-tip option is the In-Track Anti-Tip System.
Static Carriages provide additional height to stationary shelving making the height equal to the mobile shelving. This creates an uniform appearance of the entire storage system.
Denstor Carriages are all constructed to the highest quality standards. Carriage types include lateral carriages, modular deck lateral carriages, manual compacting carriages and mechanical-assist carriages. These carriages can be used in virtually any storage situation and will create space, increase storage capacity and improve productivity and efficiency.
