Lista International Corp. said its new Shelf Converter System transforms traditional shelf storage into a high-density drawer storage solution that uses the full cubic capacity of existing storage space. It is ideal for a wide range of manufacturing settings, maintenance and repair operations and parts cribs, as well as a lower-cost retrofit solution for any parts department that is looking to expand their storage capability, the maker added.
The Lista Shelf Converter can increase storage capacity by as much as 50% over traditional shelf storage at a fraction of the cost of replacing shelving. It is perfect for retrofitting existing industrial shelving or in new shelving-based installations, Lista said.
The system consists of modular Lista drawers set into brackets that fit a number of standard shelving brands. It allows customers to store small-to-medium sized items in drawers or on roll-out trays and larger, bulkier items on shelves, and is easily expandable as storage needs change.
Lista said its drawers hold up to 440 lbs. each, and an extensive selection of drawer partitioning accessories create compartments that exactly fit what is being stored. Drawers are equipped with a hinged drawer handle and customers can download free Lista Script drawer labeling software.
