Foldaway cold room shelving

ISD-stowaway-shelving-4UK: ISD Solutions is launching a shelving solution for busy cold rooms, which can be folded up or down in seconds.

Unlike static racking systems, which can limit available floor space and reduce flexibility, ISD’s Stowaway shelving is designed to instantly fold away when other bulkier items and palletised goods need to be accommodated.

The easy-clean Stowaway shelving system is manufactured from high grade stainless steel and supplied pre-assembled with four lock-down shelves that can be individually set in a raised or lowered position.

Measuring 40cm deep, each shelf is designed to support up to 125kg in weight and comes with light blue, dishwasher-safe polypropylene shelf inserts. Shelving bays, each with 500kg storage capacity, can be installed side-by-side to create a complete shelving wall with multiple layout options.

ISD Stowaway shelving is designed to complement the composite insulated panel systems commonly used in cold store and warehouse construction. Individual shelving bays measure 1.070m wide with height adjustable from 2.5 to 3m.

Installation is said to be quick and easy taking just 15 minutes per bay. British made and manufactured by ISD in Gloucestershire, the shelving system can also be fixed to most construction surfaces to create flexible storage in any number of applications.
