Kardex in association with Intertex

The TowerMat and InterMat heavy-duty units are ideal solutions for companies that want to store oversized and extremely heavy goods in an efficient, safe, and compact manner.


Stock with extremely long dimensions and heavy goods require particularly well thought-out storage logistics. Previously wasted space for storing long goods, metal sheets, tools, pallets, or mesh cages caused extremely complex handling issues and led to higher long-term costs. To avoid this, Kardex supplies the TowerMat vertical lift system, a dynamic and flexible solution.


The InterMat vertical carousel is perfect for round operations with special requirements. Unused space and long distances interfere with operations and can be expensive. The flexible InterMat carousel offers the ideal solution to this problem.

Areas of application

  • Large and flat design – the ideal system for sheet metal: Materials with large surface areas (2,000 x 6,000 mm) are stored compactly in the TowerMat storage lift for sheet metal and automatically transport to the operator. This allows the simple and safe transportation of loads of up to 5,000 kg per tray. To meet the requirements of different storage volumes, Kardex offers unique designs with one or two storage towers.


  • Space-saving solutions for long goods: User-friendliness is important when storing long goods. Fabric rolls, pipes, poles, steel sections, and aluminum/plastic profiles (each up to 10,000 mm in length) can be efficiently stored and fully automatically transported. Additional impressive features include: storing loads up to 5,000 kg, a small footprint, and particularly high-storage density.  The flexible option for adapting a vertical lift system makes it possible to meet individual customer requirements, such as directly connecting to operational saws.


  • The all-round answer to store pallets: Future-proof solutions must be individualized. Kardex follows this principle when it comes to the storage logistics of particularly heavy loading equipment such as pallets and mesh cages. The TowerMat’s flexibility and adaptability mean that each tray efficiently stores any material weighing up to 5,000 kg. By adapting the unit to your existing systems and building layout, you achieve optimal productivity in the area of material handling and retrieval. 


  • Flexible storage for special forms such as tools:Storing heavy, bulky tools is especially challenging. It is difficult to safely store and retrieve heavy loads and irregular-shaped goods while also saving space. Adapting a unit perfectly to the specifications of the stored goods and the structural environment brings significant benefits in terms of efficiency, reliability, and speed. When optimizing processes, flexibility and performance play a key role.

Areas of application

  • Space-saving storage solution for tires: The paternoster principle has proven especially useful for storing tires. The InterMat carousel is excellent for high-dense storage because it makes full use of the available room height and depth. Tire and car manufacturers benefit from fast access to smaller car tires, large aircraft tires, and heavy rims. This optimized material flow leads to a long-term increase in overall productivity.


  • Safe cable reel intralogistics: It is critical to safely store cable reels and other heavy round items so they do not take up too much space and are easily accessible. InterMat is a carousel designed for this purpose and fits in pits, outdoor areas, or as a T-bridge paternoster.  It is extremely user friendly and safe. A loading trolley seamlessly stores and retrieves goods. Sectional roller shutters offer protection from unauthorized access or serve as sluice gates.
