Spacefile storage products reconfigure and reuse existing space and equipment, allowing effective redevelopment. Due to the modular floating floor design, the entire system can be broken down and reused in various configurations with no further impact to the floors or the building.
Energy and Atmosphere
High density storage reduces the floor space required for on-site storage by up to 85%, thus reducing building envelopes and energy usage.
Spacefile’s ThinLine products provide more storage per square foot than our competitors, making Spacefile the most efficient high density manufacturer.
