Motion control


Motion control

The motion control of our mechanical mobile shelving system is user-dependent, specifically tailored to how the hand crank is operated. The speed and control of the system can be finely tuned by the user, allowing for smooth motion control. By using the hand crank, users can achieve optimal performance and precise movement of the shelving units.

Block movement


Block movement

Our mechanical mobile shelving system allows you to move an average of 5 aisles simultaneously, streamlining storage and retrieval processes. However, it's important to note that the number of aisles you can move at once is dependent on the weight of the items stored. The system is designed for efficiency and adaptability, accommodating varying weight loads.

Push Pull Lock


Aisle lock

To prevent unwanted safety risks for staff, aisles can be locked, so they cannot be moved. Bruynzeel offers several locking options. To lock an aisle you can either use the push and pull lock integrated in the hand crank or choose for an integrated key lock, which can also be used for overall access control.

Access & Safety

Access control

One of the standout features of our mechanical mobile shelving is the access control capability. This advanced feature allows users to limit access to the stored items through an inter-lock or key lock system, ensuring that only authorized personnel can operate the shelving units. This added layer of security makes our mechanical mobile shelving an ideal choice for environments where restricted access and confidentiality is important.
