Mobile Shelving MAXIMISING THE AVAILABLE SPACE Mobile shelving can be opened & closed when required, therefore requiring only one aisle for access. This means capacity within a given area can be substantially increased. Comparison of storage costs is most easily achieved by calculating a storage factor for each type of equipment. This is simply the result of dividing the capacity (in linear metres) by the area occupied (in square metres) including the area necessary to access the records. The higher the storage factor the more efficient the equipment. These examples are based on a like for like area. 48 four drawer filing cabinets would provide approximately 105 linear metres of filing.
