Vertical storage has become an exceedingly common method to gain storage density, increase inventory accuracy, reduce safety risk and improve productivity. ELIMINATE THE DEAD SPACE IN YOUR WAREHOUSE Storage density is increased by eliminating dead space. Dead space is the unused space above the top of your product on a shelf or rack and the ceiling. If your shelving is 7’ tall and your ceiling clear-height is 20’, you are wasting 13’ of storage. Other dead space includes the open shelf space behind the product. If your product is 12” deep and the shelf is 24” deep there is 12” of dead space. Dead space is also the air between the top […]

Congratulations to the Northbrook Police Department on the recent implementation of a High Density Mobile Storage System in their basement evidence vault. The new storage system doubled the capacity of vault, without requiring any new floor space! A common problem for many local police departments is the space needed to store crime scene evidence, some of which must be held permanently. Northbrook Police went through a formal competitive evaluation of local suppliers and selected the proposal from Ellis Systems as the best solution. Understanding that cost was an important factor, Ellis Systems designed a system that utilized both new and existing equipment in the space. Existing locking cabinets and gun […]
Recently we were asked to create secure storage space within a large data center. Divide and Conquer was the perfect solution! Typically when the request comes in to secure a storage space we are talking about the storage of physical item such as files, books, police evidence, museum artifacts, etc. But this time it was different. The request was to secure virtual storage space inside a data center. No file folders, or books just virtual data stored inside of hundreds of “physical servers”! The perfect solution was steel partition system that secured the space without affecting airflow. Data centers must remain cool for the servers to operate properly, making this […]
When looking for a cost effective way to increase storage capacity, consider a mezzanine. A mezzanine can easily double floor space and avoid costly additions or offsite storage. It is custom designed to fit in your space and requires no support from the existing building. A new mezzanine is simply anchored to the existing slab. As an added bonus, these are considered equipment for tax purposes. Mezzanines can accommodate a wide array of needs. They can be a free standing platform offering flexibility or a rack supported structure offering higher capacity load storage. The sky is the limit when you use this cost efficient product. By adding shelving with the […]
