Libraries (off-site book depositories) and archival record centers (archives) all face the same paradox: squeezing ever-increasing, irreplaceable book collections and records into ever-decreasing storage space. The solution is the innovative and proven high-bay shelving system. Intelligently designed and built for stable, high-density storage of book trays and archival records for optimal flexibility, space efficiency, economy, accessibility, safety and containment.
Systems feature the strength of one-piece, welded upright frames and a patented side-shelf support system that provides structural integrity that isn’t dependent on the shelves themselves. Shelves feature reinforced cold rolled steel box-formed construction.
For maximum flexibility, the shelves are adjustable on vertical increments of 1-1⁄64″ (26mm). No tools are required to relocate shelves, so as your media sizes evolve you can make the changes on the fly.
Innovative 53″ wide x 36″ deep (1346mm x 911mm) shelves for book trays offer increased capacity. 50″ wide x 30″ deep (1270mm x 759mm) shelves for archive boxes are also available. The ability to mount high-bay shelving on compact mobile carriages provides even higher storage density and lower cost-per-box stored.
The non-offgassing, hybrid polyester powder coat paint keeps archived media safe for the long term. Integral side-shelf supports, shelf back stops, upright baffle closure panels and flue spaces contain media and help protect it from fire loss.
Whether stationary or on mobile carriages, shelves are sized to optimize storage density, while enabling access by high-lift order pickers.
