  • Patent number: 8246127
    Abstract: A storage cylinder within an enclosed storage unit that secures stored items and inhibits shelf repositioning during normal operation. The design allows shelf reconfiguration during maintenance and restocking. The storage cylinder contains rectangular-shaped and triangular-shaped storage areas. Most importantly, all storage areas (including those with a generally triangular-shape) have parallel faces with horizontal slots that are used for shelf support. Such a design requires radial movement to reposition the shelves. In its closed position the maintenance door or baffle mechanism restricts shelf removal. Therefore, during normal operation, when the maintenance door or baffle is closed, shelf repositioning is not possible. However, access panels still allow removal of stored objects. During maintenance or restocking, the maintenance door or baffle mechanism allows removal and installation of shelves.
