Climate-controlled storage options

Kardex designed the Megamat RS and Shuttle XP storage units in a way that allows customers to install additional temperature and climate features.

The following options are available individually or in a combination package:

  • Chilling: Store sensitive items (e.g., medication)
  • Air conditioning: This is imperative for keeping goods within a specific temperature range, anywhere between -25°C and 60°C.
  • Controlled humidity: Easily reduce humidity in the unit to as low as 5%. This is especially important for storing particularly dry items or raw materials.
