Office Storage Products to Save Space
Often business owners find that as the business grows, their original office begins to feel cramped for space. Growing and moving office spaces is all part of successful business development but sometimes simpler, and cheaper, solutions can be found to save space. This may be a rethink of the office layout, or the implementation of a more efficient office storage system.
Mobile Storage: Mobile storage units, otherwise known as ‘Compactus’ shelving save up to 40% floor space compared to other storage units for office. While commonly used for high volume storage of archive collections, mobile units can also be successfully used for medium and small office storage products. Mobile units save storage space of office by putting static shelves on castors to mobilise them. The shelves move far enough apart to allow a person to walk in and find the needed material. When not in use, the mobile units take up half the floor space of other models and hideaway mess. Mobile storage units are great solutions for overflowing filing cabinets, and are perfect for holding documents and resources that are only infrequently needed.
Tambour Door Units: Office storage units with inbuilt tambour doors are a simple, but excellent way to save space. Tambour doors recede fully and seamlessly into the storage unit so that there are no outward jutting doors to block walkways or take up desk space. Tambour storage units can be installed anywhere in the office where space is restricted, such as along walkways, in kitchen areas and under desks. Tambour units are available in plastic or aluminium finishes and a number of different colours, to integrate well with existing office decor.
Lateral Storage Units: Lateral office storage units save space in the office by offering multifunctional filing capacity. With lateral units filing can be conducted from front to back as well as side to side, making them suitable for holding files of different sizes. Lateral filing cabinets are perfect office solutions for saving space as the units can hold twice as much as vertical filing cabinets of the same height. Lateral filing cabinets can be used in individual workstations or for holding a shared filing system.
Store Wall: The store wall office storage solution saves space by acting as both a storage unit and a partitioning wall. The store wall is designed to be slimline and space saving, but has sizable storage spaces built into it, allowing a simultaneous reorganisation of a workspace and introduction of new office storage space.
