High Density™

Since 1927, Adjustable Shelving has designed, crafted and installed innovative and economical storage solutions for a diverse clientele, including Fortune 500 companies and prestigious law and accounting firms. We now offer our newly designed Adjustable HD Series space saving, mobile storage system that elegantly balances the aesthetic, cost and durability concerns of architects, designers and facility managers with restrictive building codes and conditions.

Our strong, yet lightweight, heavy gauge aluminum carriage design is the most intelligent high density system available. Adjustable HD Series systems can be installed in buildings that have floor weight load limitations that would preclude the installation of most steel carriage space saving systems. With our complete turnkey service, Adjustable HD Series systems are individually specified, and installed by factory trained professionals to meet the requirements of your particular site.

Whether your application is a highly visible library, office or an unimproved back room, Adjustable HD Series space saving systems are an intelligent and effective solution for all of your high density mobile storage requirements.
