Abstract: The present invention provides a continuous shelf storage unit comprising a shelf, an inclined rail track on which non-driven wheeled carriages can move, with auxiliary equipment for the loading and unloading of the shelf, the rail track having a slight incline for causing a deceleration of wheeled carriages coasting thereon, and momentum-imparting apparatus acting on the wheeled carriages and disposed in the track. The momentum imparting apparatus is activated by the auxiliary devices during removal of a carriage from the shelf.
Abstract: A shelf storage system comprises a plurality of shelves on which are supported a plurality of mobile storage and transport units. Each unit comprises a first part consisting of a four sided frame in which rollers are housed with their axes of rotation above the frame and a second part which is adapted for carrying the goods to be stored and is detachably supported on the first part. The second part may be any one of a large variety of forms chosen in dependence upon the goods which are to be stored therein.
