With ordinary pharmacy units, the shelf is difficult to adjust because it must span the space between the supports and 4 clips are required to secure it; therefore, it is almost never moved. The entire width, 32" or 48", must accommodate the tallest bottle so there is a lot of wasted panel space.
A major advantage of the Uniweb Rx 2000 shelf system is that the trays (shelves) are only 16" wide so they are easy to adjust and move. They can be positioned on the panel to accommodate the tallest bottle so there is little or no wasted space.
Continuous panels with shelving on the back wall and floor spacers between the back shelving and bay decks allows merchandise to be placed behind the pharmacy bays. There is no unused space at the panel joint or behind the bays.
Also, it is not necessary to remove drugs from the tray when repositioning so the pharmacist can easily move trays at will. This consolidation of product, more product in less space, also results in time and motion savings.

Unlike fixture companies within which pharmacy is an after-thought, Uniweb was founded to address the specific needs of pharmacy – and pharmacy only. Forty-five years later and Uniweb continues to meet regularly with its major pharmacy clients and continues to create solutions to their unique challenges.
All Uniweb counter walls include electrical outlets and cabling, data conduits, shelving and cabinetry (including counter tops). The modular pharmacy goes even further to include the walls, ceiling and lighting. In 2 – 3 days you can go from an empty space to a fully functional pharmacy
Temporary Pharmacies that last: The modular pharmacy is used by some of our chain clients for their temporary needs. Assembled within 3-days and dismantled just as quickly, the modular pharmacy can be stored in a trailer or container until you need it again. Given the Uniweb modular pharmacy is conservatively expected to last a minimum of 8 installations, why would you ever build and scrap a traditional pharmacy again?
Standard items are kept in stock so they can be shipped quickly, usually within 1-week of receiving your order.
Uniweb’s unique design allows for installation in about half the time of competitive systems. Partly because Uniweb wall panels are installed directly in front of the existing wall. No need for plywood backing or strapping to be added.
Uniweb's high-density shelving is available with full back, open back, or half and half (lower closed, upper open). In addition to reducing upfront cost, the open concept improves visibility & ventilation and may reduce shrinkage.
Need more storage space but don't have room? Uniweb has a unique system whereby see-through high density shelves can be place directly in front of existing wall units (on sliding tracks) providing a substantial increase in your storage capacity but requiring less than 10 inches of depth.
Uniweb panels can be ordered with CSA & UL approved electrical fully built in to the units (as well as data conduits for all your phone, computer, and other data needs). The wiring to connect everything together uses quick-connect cables allowing your millwork / shelving installers to do all the wiring substantially reducing your electrician costs.
These Uniweb panels fit on any existing gondola shelving to provide Uniweb flexibility throughout your store saving significantly on your front shop shelving costs. If you're like most, you order peg panels as backing in all your front-shop shelving even though very little of the front shop uses pegs. Peg panels can cost significantly more than other options so by ordering less expensive panels throughout the store, and then attaching Uniweb variety panels only where pegs are needed, you save on upfront costs while gaining greater flexibility
Under counter storage units (vials, bottles, shelves, drawers, etc.) are all hung off Uniweb panels, allowing re-organizing of your pharmacy in minutes and without the need for tools. The full breadth of Uniweb's product line is astounding, but we're always being asked to come up with new solutions to address pharmacy's ever changing needs. If you have a need that isn't being solved by your current vendors, please contact Uniweb Canada.
