City of Bayswater Compactus Unit Floor Plan

The City of Bayswater is a local government area and covers 33km2 that is situated only 8km north-east of Perth’s central business district. It is the home to several educational and exciting attractions as well as 10km of the Swan River Foreshore.

City of Bayswater Council office required a storage system that was capable of storing documents. This meant that the storage had to be both safe and secure. Orbit’s Mobile Storage System was the perfect solution.

A compactus unit is a storage system that allows for the maximum storage capacity while using minimum floor space. As a result, the mobile system was able to increase the storage within the given floor space through the use of a transferable aisle. The storage system can slide backwards and forwards giving access to all bays of shelving.
