Occasionally you encounter a product that seems so elegantly simple you can’t think why you haven’t seen it before. Smart Slide shelving from BITO Storage Systems surely fits the bill.

Basically it consists of sections of steel shelving on castors, rather like very large trolleys, which can be moved sideways by hand to provide access to further, fixed shelving behind. Not rocket science, but nicely implemented and ideal for e-commerce applications. Anyone could have thought of it, but BITO has.

The company says it has many advantages – not least the opportunity for users to swap different shelving configurations in and out to meet changing needs. It offers a high number of flexible picking slots adjustable in size and location, and can combine dense storage system for slow and fast moving products. The result: a pick face within a minimal footprint, which according to BITO can provide a 30 per cent saving on floor space.

Smart Slide is based on BITO’s Boltless Shelving, and its operation is like that of a wardrobe or cupboard with doors. Each slideable front bay is mounted on castors and comes complete with a roller mechanism that allows it to slide easily and smoothly to one side. Stops on the shelves prevent impacts between them.
