BENEFITS 1. Wheelhouse design allows for maximum use of vertical storage space. Bottom shelf is just 4 1/4" (108 mm) from the top of rail. 2. Interchangeable carriage wheel housing design allows for future growth and reconfiguration. 3. Unique 2 1/8" (54mm) shelving post recess adds to overall unit strength and mobile shelving stability. 4. Wheel housings available in 37 different widths, permitting optimal storage space planning with Spacesaver 4-post or case-style shelving and accessories. Back-to-back shelving options available. 5. Modular construction without the need for cross-bracing allows for easy installation. 6. Optional in-rail anti-tip feature adds tip-over protection.

DESIGN AND CAPABILITIES The highly modular carriage is constructed of heavy gauge welded steel wheel housings with their own internal, shelving support plates to insure load support, carriage squareness and rigidity, without the use of cross-bracing. This design ensures easy carriage operation under cyclic load stress.* The carriage sections are joined together through the utilization of 7-gauge steel shelving support plates and 14-gauge side profiles. The modular carriage side profiles provide connection points that secure the recessed shelving post to the carriage. This design allows easy installation, future expansion in all directions and/or relocation. The optional in-rail anti-tip, which is attached to the movable carriage, secures the carriage to the rail. All these modular features create the uniqueness of the Wheelhouse Mobile Storage System.

*Cyclic load stresses are the weight and forces placed on all parts of a mobile system as it cycles back and forth and as it rests. The force of movement combined with the weight of the stored materials is transferred to the storage housing and down the storage housing’s vertical members to the carriage, represents the cyclic load stress on the carriage. From the carriage, the load is transferred to the bearing/axle/ wheel assembly where it becomes a point load that is then transferred to the system’s rails, and finally floor. S t o r a g e
