The Benefits of Colby’s Raised Floor Storage

Our Raised Storage Areas meet the highest design standards, and can be easily integrated with stairs, handrails, conveyors, pallet gates, and a host of other lifting and loading devices.

Colby Sigma Beam

Colby’s Raised Storage Areas have been developed as a cost-effective way to expand your workable area. We can even design low-cost, medium-duty floors using standard racking components.

However, raised floor storage is still a viable option for heavy-duty applications, as we will combine structural columns with ColbyRACK beam sections, which will provide the necessary floor space and load carrying capability.

Our raised storage systems are designed to increase the capacity of your existing facility, which can save you the hassle of moving to a bigger location.
