National Office Systems will provide you with more efficiency by streamlining the flow of materials within your work environment. Our team will work with you to improve and elevate your manufacturing, distribution, or production facility with our vertical storage and retrieval carousels.

Benefits of Vertical Storage Carousels

  • Ergonomic storage and retrieval work stations
  • Improved inventory management control
  • Lockable doors and password protected access to inventory
  • Dust protection
  • Up to 80% savings in floor space by turning unused air space into productive storage space
  • Up to 600% increase in productivity

Vertical Storage Carousels are well equipped to be used in alternate applications and are available in more than 7,000 standards configurations all while allowing the operator to remained visible to customers.

Vertical Storage Carousel 

Vertical Storage Carousels are storage systems that are fully enclosed and are comprised of vertically rotating shelving that move up and down along a track delivering stored items to the operator at an ergonomically positioned work counter. This ergonomic design will eliminate space and time by efficiently allowing the items to be delivered within reach, minimizing bending, reaching, and lifting all while reducing on-the-job injuries.

Inventory Management Software

The Vertical Carousels have inventory management software integrated into the systems for increased levels of inventory management and productivity. The high tech, yet easy to use controller is ergonomically positioned to allow the operator simple and fast use. Vertical Storage Carousels (VSR) and Vertical Lift Modules (VLM) can be integrated to provide a comprehensive, fully automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS).

7 Principles of Universal Design


#1 —  Equitable Use: The design is useful and marketable to people.

Lateral Files provide 100% accessibility while saving floor space and increasing productivity for all people with diverse abilities.


# 2 —   Flexibility In Use: The design accommodates a wide range of individual preferences and abilities.

Storage methods within the systems can be customized to meet individual requirements or preferences.


# 3 —  Simple & Intuitive Use: Ease of Use

Simple push of a button or scan of a barcode rotates the required file or item to the operator.


#4 —  Perceptible Information: The design communicates necessary information effectively to the user, regardless of the ambient conditions or the user’s sensory abilities.

Easy to read indicators and plain text graphics allow immediate use with little or no training.


#5 —  Tolerance For Error: The design minimizes hazards and the adverse consequences of the accidental or unintended actions.

Safety photocell beams, imbalance load indicator and intuitive controls protect the operator and the contents of the system.


# 6 —  Low Physical Effort: The design can be used efficiently and comfortably with minimum fatigue.

Simply by touching a button, the unit rotates to the selected location, bringing the contents to the operator. Unit drawers are accessed with 5 lbs. of effort or less.


#7 —  Size And Space For Approach And Use: Appropriate size and space is provided for approach, reach, manipulation, and use regardless of user’s body, size, posture or mobility.

Electric Lateral File units are designed to meet ADA requirements for forward and side reach. Operation of controls meets ADA requirements.
