KardexRemstar Carousel and Vertical Lift Module Systems

Aug. 11, 2010
This company’s line of carousels, Shuttle Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs), and the Lektriever Electric Lateral Files (ELFs), can help commercial companies build sustainable green buildings or redesign existing buildings to meet green standards.

These products improve space utilization, increase productivity and provide safe, ergonomic operation to help organizations support green initiatives by meeting environmental stewardship, social responsibility and economic prosperity objectives.

By reducing the amount of space required for storage and retrieval operations, companies can construct smaller, more energy efficient buildings, reducing the construction footprint by up to 15% in some cases. In existing buildings, overhead "floor to truss" space optimization can reclaim up to 85% of the space used by file cabinets, drawers and shelving and rack systems.

More efficient operation reduces energy consumption, which helps reduce an organization's overall carbon footprint. Easy-to-use controls and software can improve productivity up to 500% in some applications. Return on Investment for many installations is often under 18 months, according to the manufacturer.
