All 40 of these 400mm x 300mm
will fit into a single CSU

This picture shows how many different articles can actually be stored separately in a CSU in typical configuration  , with 5 layers. In this shelf we have used strong, roomy plastic boxes, each 400mm x 300mm, which will hold generous stocks of smaller items. Each shelf holds 8 of these boxes, giving a total of 40 storage locations in one square metre! We also offer smaller boxes, so by choosing 200mm x 150mm boxes, you can quadruple the number of articles in the same area.

Reduce walking /picking distances

An example with 30 picking locations in different layouts.

Standard pallet racking with 1 picking level = 30m, 30 picking locations.

Smart solutions with pull-out units = 10m, 30 picking locations.

Smart solutions with Compact storage units = 6m, 30 picking locations products.

Compact Storage Frame

The frame is a rigid steel box with pre-drilled holes on the uprights at 30mm centers for fitting shelves according to your specifications, available in two formats depending on which side the pull-out shelves slide out: short-side forward and long-side forward. 

Pull-out capacity compact storage unit

There are three choices to pull out the shelf. The shelves are covered with sheet metal of strong galvanized steel sheet and have 12mm edges around them. The size of the plane is 800x1200mm which is a standardized EUR measure, which makes it suitable for Euro boxes and accessories for pallet racks. The shelves have a maximum load of 150kg or 2ookg.

Number of shelves

The tables show youwhat clearances to expect
between shelves for a given
number of shelves per unit, assuming even spacing. Shelves can also be spaced unevenly ifdesired. For more information, please consult product data sheets or contact us.

Shelf Lock

Unless you bolt the CSU to the floor, it is essential to add a shelf lock, which prevents more than one shelf being pulled out at once, so the unit doesn’t get tipped over
