8 Reasons to Choose 4Post™ Shelving for Healthcare Storage


May 5, 2020

When your healthcare facility needs quick and easy storage for a secure room environment or you need simple storage that can provide security and controlled access when needed, 4Post™ shelving is a practical, affordable solution. Here are eight reasons to consider 4Post™ shelving for your healthcare storage needs.

It’s easy to set up.

With just a few basic tools, you can quickly assemble 4Post shelving and begin organizing your supplies immediately.

It’s durable.

4Post shelving is constructed of heavy-duty steel, so it can handle the varied weights of a wide range of stored items without bowing or bending out of shape.

It’s movable.

If your healthcare facility’s storage needs change or you redesign your storage space, 4Post shelving can easily be moved and reconfigured, so you don’t have to reinvest in a new storage solution.

It’s expandable.

As your storage needs grow, you can expand your 4Post shelving with adder units, and each shelf is fully adjustable and can be reconfigured to adapt to changes in your stored items. 4Post shelving can also be incorporated into a larger high-density storage system, so your investment is protected over the long term.

It’s secure.

Optional hinged or tambour doors can be added to 4Post shelving units for items that require HIPAA compliance or additional security.

It’s visible.

The open shelf design makes it easy to quickly visually assess your stored items to account for inventory or see when supplies are running low.

It’s accessible.

4Post shelving can be configured to allow multiple personnel to access stored items at the same time, increasing efficiency and reducing time spent on retrieving stored items.

It’s easy to keep clean.

Because 4Post shelving is constructed of heavy-duty steel and finished with powder-coated paint, its surface is durable and able to withstand repeated wipe downs that are often necessary in a hospital or healthcare environment.
