Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department

Opening/Challenges

If you break the law in Stanislaus, then the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department has room for you to serve your time. But, until recently, there wasn’t room as much room for the records, clothing and possessions of 1,500 inmates, not to mention the personal items of the local deputies and booking staff.

With 40 new inmates booked and 20 to 30 released during every 12-hour shift, these public safety officials needed smarter organization than filing cabinets and hooks to reduce their lost property claims. Good thing Montel and BMH Equipment Inc., an Authorized Montel Distributor, were there to provide some much-needed backup.

Solutions

For their strength, accessibility and customizable design, Mobilex mechanical-assist mobile storage systems were the obvious choice: one for general administration – including historical records, personnel belongings, confidential items and training materials – one for in-custody filing and another for inmates’ possessions. Complete with adjustable SmartShelves, Mobilex offered the sheriff’s office storage that met high capacity demands without sacrificing on square feet or versatility.

Features

Since as many as 20 team members or more would require access to the systems throughout a given day, the mobile storage installations had to open quickly and keep staff safe during operation. Each Mobilex storage system came equipped with SafeCrank ergonomic handles and push-button locking mechanisms designed to prevent closure while in use. Embedded rails underneath the Mobilex carriages also protected against tripping and allowed access for wheelchairs and carts.

Custom in-shelf features, such as clothing racks, ventilated lockers and numbered bins, gave sheriff’s office personnel the freedom to organize according to how they processed inmates, instead of having to create workarounds for static, inflexible shelving.

And for added safety, what storage system in Central Valley, California would be complete without anti-tipping technology capable of withstanding an earthquake? Montel, BMH Equipment and the sheriff’s department covered all the bases to ensure officers and office staff would be safe no matter when an emergency strikes.

Benefits

Thanks to high-density Mobilex storage systems, the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department can book and release inmates comfortably, reduce its liability for lost property and provide its staff with safe, frictionless access to a dynamic library of records, resources and more.

Big Apple plus big business equals big expenses.

« Asics »

A single square foot of retail space in New York City can run store owners hundreds of dollars, even thousands – and more if these businesses don’t know how to be economical with their space. So expensive commercial real estate becomes a trade-off for some of the best foot traffic in the world.

But ASICS learned it doesn’t have to be. This internationally recognized leader in running shoes and activewear recently commissioned a mobile shelving installation for its flagship location on Fifth Avenue in downtown NYC. Instead of paying incredible sums to house its enormous inventory, ASICS is already seeing a return on its investment in a high-density mobile storage system versatile enough to shrink the footprint of its inventory’s while maximizing capacity.

Montel built ASICS NYC both manual and mechanical-assist mobile storage systems, both with SmartShelf technology, which combines feather-touch maneuvering and sturdy construction with an easily adjustable frame.

Furthermore, Montel worked alongside ASICS interior designers to craft a storage system with stainless steel end panels that blend with the modern and sophisticated look of the whole store.

PRODUCT FEATURES

For its main floor and back inventory, ASICS commissioned two SmartSpace 2MAs. Each of its unit in both installations comes equipped with an ergonomic SafeCrank handles with push-button locks. Just one pound of pressure can move one or multiple entire aisles of athletic wear. An additional SmartSpace 2M provides additional coverage for overflow inventory.

Engineered to support tons of inventory, SmartShelf shelving for the SmartSpace 2M and 2MA were customized with adjustable hardware and hanging clothing racks. Any ASICS employee can raise or lower the shelves to accommodate different sized boxes of products without tools or the aid of a professional.

“The SmartSpace 2MA mobile storage system fuses performance and fashion in true Manhattan style for our first ASICS flagship retail location on Fifth Avenue. The Montel product quality is not expensive, it’s priceless.”
