High-Density Storage

In the competitive landscape of fulfillment operations, maximizing storage density and optimizing order picking are critical. Static shelving often leads to wasted space, inefficient workflows, and increased operational costs. UNEX high-density storage solutions, like SpeedCell, provide a dynamic answer to these challenges.

High-Density Storage Dramatically Increases SKU Density

Implementing high-density storage solutions is an excellent way to consolidate high volumes of product and maximize limited warehouse space. Rather than making the financial investment to gain more square footage, high-density storage solutions save space and increase throughput within your existing footprint. In addition to increasing storage capacity, dynamic high-density storage solutions provide fulfillment operations with a simple solution that transforms vacant space into usable storage and significantly reduces labor costs.

How High-Density Storage Solves Order Fulfillment Challenges

Inefficient space utilization and disorganized inventory can significantly hinder productivity and profitability in warehouses, fulfillment centers, and retail backrooms. Implementing UNEX high-density storage solutions like SpeedCell addresses these challenges head-on and provides numerous operational benefits:

  • Maximized Space Utilization: High-density storage solutions like SpeedCell enable you to maximize vertical space by creating dense storage columns. This results in better cube utilization, increased pick facings, and the ability to compress extensive racking into a highly organized footprint.
  • Boost Pick Efficiency: By condensing storage and creating shorter pick paths, high-density storage solutions minimize the time pickers spend walking to locate products. With inventory conveniently within reach, your team can fulfill more orders per hour, providing a critical boost in productivity.
  • Streamlined Inventory Management: Inefficient organization disrupts workflows and hinders productivity. SpeedCell has a cell-based design and movable columns that improve SKU organization and accessibility. This reduces picker search time, enabling your team to locate and retrieve items effortlessly, ultimately leading to improved profitability.
  • Enhanced Profitability: The design of high-density storage cells, like those in SpeedCell, protects inventory from dust, moisture, and other contaminants that may cause damage. Additionally, the enclosed sides prevent items from falling out and potentially injuring employees, ensuring a safer work environment.


How much does a SpeedCell high-density storage system cost?

To give you an idea, SpeedCell costs the same or less per SKU stored compared to static shelving, for example. Pricing varies depending on your space and requirements for your specific application.

What is the most commonly used cell size?

Product size can be variable, and operations must accommodate all SKUs, but that’s hard to do with a one-size-fits-all approach! Thus, after analyzing millions of SKUs, we’ve discovered that 12” x 12” is the most common size for most industries. We can even design columns with different-sized cells within the same column.

What is the weight capacity per column? What is the weight capacity per cell?

240 lbs. or 108 kg per column

34 lbs. or 15.4 kg per cell

Can SpeedCell be customized for my products?

Yes! SpeedCell is uniquely designed for each client, and we tailor the size, shape, mobility, and material of each SpeedCell column to solve your exact storage challenges.

There are some limitations on sizes: 6″ is our minimum width, and 24″ is our maximum width.

We offer 2 standard colors of White and Grey. If you have a special color for your facilities, we will gladly order fabric in colors dyed to your specifications at an increased cost and lead time to allow for purchasing materials.

Is there any maintenance required?

No. SpeedCell units are easily cleaned with plain water. For stubborn stains such as pen marks, Goo Gone works wonders. As a bonus, our standard white material is Electric Static Resistant, Flame Resistant, and fully complies with the California fire code. Columns are also easy to install and remove from the tracks, even once your bay is installed, and require only a standard ladder to remove. No special tools are needed.
