Mekdrive 3 Compactus®

An ultralight cost-efficient mechanical filing and storage system

Dexion’s Mekdrive 3 Compactus revolutionises filing and storage systems with advanced technology and design. The Mekdrive 3 Compactus® now has up to 78% more storage capacity with increased width from 2700mm to 4800mm. Enhancements include a modern and unique stylised hand-wheel with integrated spinner handle, providing safer and easier operation.

The Mekdrive 3 Compactus® is the lightest mechanically assisted mobile storage system available. It has been designed to keep floor loads to a minimum, a major consideration in commercial office buildings. The Mekdrive 3 Compactus® has an increased system width of four shelving bays, which could previously only be achieved with fixed-track systems.

Product Features and Benefits

  • The Mekdrive 3 Compactus® delivers a market leading system width, which redefines non fixed-track Compactus® capability. It does not require fixing into the floor, eliminating any permanent damage and allowing for cost effective relocation and reconfiguration of the system.
  • Available in up to four shelving bays in widths with a maximum widths of 4800mm, offering a total block load capacity (limit) of 6,000kg, over five tracks.
  • The Mekdrive 3 has an optional longer pivoting ramp allowing the tracks to be levelled to a height of 100mm, catering for wider system widths and can be installed over varying floor contours.
  • The clip-on track ramps further reduce trip hazards increasing safety and allows for the movement of trolleys and wheelchairs between the shelving bays.
  • There are a variety of locking options available providing additional security to stored documents.
  • The Mekdrive3 track chain has a zinc plated finish providing a low maintenance solution with easy tensioning that requires no lubrication, keeping a clean look.
  • The low profile track design, effectively lowers the overall height of the system to keep all storage levels within easy reach.
  • The Mekdrive 3 Compactus® has multiple track configurations for better distribution of floor loads. The unique track anti-tilt mechanism secures all shelving, further enhancing operator safety. It has a narrower track at 105mm, which offers less protrusion outside the shelving width.
  • The Mekdrive 3 hand-wheel can be retro-fitted to Mekdrive 1 and 2 systems with a simple modification.
  • GECA Certified
  • Dexion offers a 10 year warranty on this product.
