How much space can I save with mobile shelving?

How long does it take to get mobile shelving units installed?

Although your system is made to order, the system is built from stocked modular components. Generally the lead time is 3-4 weeks from receipt of your order, though this can often be reduced to meet your deadlines.

Can I get units to match my office decor?

Yes!  The Shelving can be produced in any RAL colour you like, though “off white” ivory is the most popular choice as it really brightens up your filing areas. When the shelving is closed you will only see the sides of the shelving and these can be covered with steel or wooden panels to match the décor in your office
