Hänel and STOPA vertical storage rack systems carry several advantages:

  • One of a Kind: The only machine of it’s kind that doesn’t require scheduled maintenance.
  • Return on Investment – Both storage systems have a quick ROI with a low ongoing cost of ownership. The machines have a long service life and are easily transportable.
  • Floor Space Reduction – Utilisation of vertical space provides huge reductions in floor space, with lifts available up to 20m high.
  • Improved Inventory Management – Reduced stock loss, making stock taking easier.
  • Increased Productivity – Stock retrieval and replenishment becomes more efficient using the Hänel lift; requested items are brought to the ergonomic retrieval height in seconds.
  • Reduced Workplace Injuries – With an improved OHS Environment, staff can work in non-forklift zones and retrieve and replenish stock at a suitable height; eliminating reaching up, bending down and lifting.
