Sliding Shelves’ Help Save Space

What do Queen Victoria’s undergarments, presidential memorabilia, 6,000-pound torpedoes, and Coca-Cola collectibles have in common? They’re all stored on Spacesaver’s high-density mobile systems! The innovative “sliding shelves” have been made in Fort Atkinson since 1972 and they were voted the “Coolest Thing Made in Fort Atkinson” during the Chamber of Commerce’s annual contest.

“This contest is a great way to highlight the unique impact of our community’s businesses, and we’re thrilled to win for a second year in a row,” said Spacesaver CEO Mark Haubenschild.


Spacesaver’s mobile shelving technology or sliding shelves help people care for some of the most interesting and important objects in the world. The systems save space and improve efficiency in museums, libraries, military bases, public safety buildings, hospitals, and many other workplaces. They work by mounting shelving, cabinets, or racking on “carriages” that move along rails, transforming wasted aisle space into useful storage. Users can easily open aisles to access stored items using handles, a mechanical assist handle, electronic controls, and now even a mobile phone or tablet with our TUSC™ Control app:

Spacesaver’s high-density mobile systems store and protect some of the world’s most interesting and important objects, including museum artifacts and supplies and equipment for hospitals and the military. The product was recently voted the ‘Coolest Thing Made in Fort.’

The award is part of the Fort Atkinson Chamber of Commerce’s annual observance of Manufacturing Month.
