Electronic Files Are the Way of the Future…and So Is High-Density Storage
October 18, 2019
While you can find plenty of debate on whether the paperless office is a myth, paper usage in the U.S. reached its peak in 1999, followed by a steady decline of about 1 percent per year. That’s great news for the environment. Yet according to the Clean Air Council, the average American office worker still uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year, generating about two pounds of paper per day. That is a lot of paper management!
Why Paper-Free Is Still on the Horizon
Many businesses rely on paper documents for regulatory, legal and administrative purposes. In addition, most organizations amass materials over time that they need to store for archival purposes. Storing them efficiently is critical to staying productive within existing office space.
A Lean, Green Solution
The electronic revolution undoubtedly changed the way America works, increasing our focus on working leaner and smarter. High-density storage is the perfect solution for offices that want to do more with less. Many organizations today are pressed for space but don’t want to expand into bigger facilities or rent dedicated storage space for paper files and supplies. Because our high-density storage solutions are modular, they can be expanded and adjusted as needed; and because these systems pack two to three times the materials into the same amount of space, they ensure that your document storage is as lean and efficient as the rest of your office.

The Women & Infants Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, had plans to relocate to a larger modern building. The hospital’s extensive patient records were being stored in an older high-density mobile shelving system, but the moving shelves were too high for the low ceilings of the new space and didn’t fit the fresh contemporary aesthetic…
