NEW! SpeedCell Column Sizes

Now it's even easier to get started with SpeedCell dynamic high-density storage.

New SpeedCell Column Sizes

SpeedCell is a dynamic high-density storage solution that dramatically increases storage density in warehousing, order fulfillment, and retail facilities. Unlike static shelving that stays fixed in place, dynamic high-density storage is moveable within storage racks. SpeedCell is unique in that it allows for maximum space utilization within a given bay of pallet rack. Converting static pallet rack storage into dynamic high-density storage is simple with SpeedCell; now offered in 6 standard column sizes to make it even simpler to get started with this super, space-saving high-density storage solution.

Learn everything you need to know about our new SpeedCell column size options, including full product features and specifications.

SpeedCell Column Sizes

SpeedCell dynamic high-density storage consists of columns made up of individual storage “cells.” These rugged columns are made from high-strength industrial textiles and are hung from a steel track suspension system using high-strength webbing for maximum durability - something that sets SpeedCell apart from its competitors. SpeedCell columns slide side to side on the steel track system within the rack, allowing complete access to the storage space, minimizing the shuffling of inventory, and maximizing the efficiency of each pick.

SpeedCell is offered in 6 standard column sizes ranging from XS to XXL and can be purchased with or without racking. Each cell can hold up to 35 lbs., and each column is rated at 240 lbs., making SpeedCell an extremely dense system that allows operations to gain significant increases in storage capacity.

How to Choose Your SpeedCell Columns

When determining which SpeedCell column size(s) will work best for your unique needs, there are 2 main points to consider: product size and SKU velocity. Let’s examine what you need to know about your product mix in order to choose the best SpeedCell columns for your applications.

Product Size

It may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s worth mentioning that when it comes to choosing the right storage medium for your SKUs, size matters. It all boils down to how you can best utilize your space. For example, you wouldn’t want to store a few tiny products in an XL bay of SpeedCell. Likewise, you should ensure you aren’t overstuffing columns either. While each cell can hold up to 35 lbs., and each column is rated at 240 lbs. (regardless of size), you still want to avoid storing an oversized SKU in a too-small space.

After years of research and countless hours in the field studying operations across industries, UNEX product specialists and engineers have developed the 6 most common shelf sizes to accommodate a wide variety of SKUs. Whether you’re storing small parts or cosmetics, or more oversized garments like sweatshirts and coats, there is a SpeedCell column that will work for your SKUs.

SKU Velocity

SKU velocity is the key to determining which storage mediums will best suit your inventory. The overall throughput of a facility should be top of mind for every fulfillment operation. Understanding whether you're storing thousands of different SKUs or thousands of the same SKU, combined with pick frequency, will be a determining factor for choosing the correct storage medium.

SpeedCell is ideal for your slowest-moving each picks. Slow-moving SKUs are a necessary evil in every operation. Ordered infrequently, they don‘t need a high-profile position in the warehouse, but they still need to be stored in an easily accessible location. Storing slow-movers in a high-density storage system like SpeedCell offers the maximum space utilization for storing this type of SKU.

When choosing SpeedCell columns, select the size that is no larger than what is needed to create the most densely packed bay possible. Unlike static shelving that creates a lot of wasted space, due to inaccessibility when stocking and picking products, SpeedCell utilizes every square inch of a bay. When workers are stocking and picking products, they always have full, step-in access to every column in the bay, making SpeedCell the most space-efficient choice when it comes to high-density storage.
