Lektriever Vertical Carousel

Lektriever Vertical Carousel

Repetitive actions such as bending, reaching and stooping over long periods of time can cause serious injuries which lead to serious worker compensation claims. These claims are no joke and can create hefty labor costs that can be prevented if ergonomic improvements are made. The Lektriever Vertical Carousel from Kardex Remstar creates an ergonomic work station for all users. When all files and items are 100% accessible for everyone, productivity and ergonomics are increased, risk of injury is reduced and worker compensation claims are diminished.

In a traditional 4-drawer filing system, bending, reaching and stooping to search for files is a daily activity. Poor ergonomics can result in a great deal of work related injuries causing employees to be absent from work and increasing temporary labor costs and worker compensation claims. Ergonomics is the science of adjusting an individual’s workplace environment to fit the worker. Safety should be a number one priority in the workplace to prevent these issues.

The Lektriever Vertical Carousel is an automated vertical filing system designed to store all file types, media and other various light duty administration goods. Working on the “Goods to Person” principle, goods are delivered to the worker at an ergonomic height, eliminating the need to bend, reach or stoop for stored goods.

For further ergonomic adjustability, an optional manual or electrical adjustable work counter is available allowing the height of the work counter to be adjusted to each workers comfort level. The work counter can be adjusted from a seated position of 30.31 inches to a standing position of 39.37 inches and stopped anywhere in between to help eliminate bad posture and poor ergonomic conditions. With files being delivered directly to the worker, productivity can be improved up to 160%.

Ergonomics in the workplace can increase worker satisfaction, which has a positive effect on work ethic. It is important to recognize the wellbeing of each individual employee to ensure workers compensation claims can be kept to a minimum, if not completely prevented. With the help of dynamic storage solutions from Kardex Remstar, employers can rest easy, knowing employees will be working in an ergonomic and safe environment.

Kardex Remstar, LLC, a company of the Kardex Group is a leading provider of automated storage and retrieval systems for manufacturing, distribution, warehousing, offices and institutions. For information about our dynamic storage solutions, call 800-639-5805 or visit
