Storax, a provider of high-density storage systems, has partnered with Flexspace to be its exclusive partner in North America—forming Storax America.
With a focus on cold storage environments, the Storax product portfolio includes the mobile racking system Poweracks that consolidates multiple static access aisles to a moving aisle, as well as Ranger, a high-density storage solution that automatically circulates pallets on a shuttle system.
Widely used worldwide, Storax storage systems are engineered with a history of innovation and forward-thinking space management solutions for cold storage environments.  Their introduction in North America illustrates a growing need for cold storage systems that optimize space utilization and decrease energy demands.
“Today’s cold storage warehouses need flexible, high-density storage solutions that unite efficient space utilization, direct inventory access, increased productivity, and reduced labor demands,” said Todd Jessup, principal at Storax America/Flexspace. “Cold storage environments are energy-dependent and cost-intensive environments to operate and build; facility owners and managers are seeking storage methods that maximize their “cube” while trying to maintain immediate, unobstructed access to their products.”
Poweracks—mobile storage racking system maximizes space utilization through use of a moving aisle, which provides direct access to every pallet location and greatly reduces the number of static access aisles required.
Ranger—a high-density storage solution that automatically circulates pallets on a shuttle system by hand-held remote control or WiFi PDA. Using advanced photocell technology, the Ranger intelligently detects and positions itself underneath a pallet to lift and move pallets within a deep-lane tunnel rack system, leaving operators free to do other tasks.
Demonstrated key benefits of both products include:
•Up to 100% increase in pallet storage
•Energy costs divided by up to 100% more pallets
•20-50% decrease in facility footprint
•20-40% construction costs savings
•20-40% savings on cost per pallet
•50-100% increase in revenue potential
•Unobstructed product access—no double handling
•Increased air circulation and product integrity
Flexspace is a storage solution provider whose vision is to revolutionize industrial storage space across America. It provides clients with solutions that minimize energy demands, capital exposure, and impact on Earth’s resources.
