Challenges County Clerks Face Storing Deed & Docket Books
Storing deed and docket books is a challenge for the county clerks that are in charge of maintaining them. The massive amount of property ownership records means there are a large number of deed books. And because a complete history of every court case has to be retained, docket books are kept long-term. Additionally, both deed and docket books are heavy and take up a lot of space. The best solution to optimize your storage space while maintaining easy access to the books is to use either stationary or high density roller shelves. (Find stationary roller shelves online here).
How the Roller Shelves Work
With roller shelves, books are stored on their side with almost no space in between the openings to maximize the amount of books that will fit. And the reason the unit is called roller shelves is because each shelf has a set of rollers. The deed and docket books sit on top of the rollers. This way when you reach in to retrieve a book, the rollers assist you, making the book slide right out. This feature is essential when you are dealing with heavy books.
Two Options for Roller Shelves
There are two options for your roller shelves. The first is a stand-alone or stationary unit. This is ideal for small applications. The other option is high density roller shelves. How this works is roller shelves are placed on carriages attached to floor tracks. With the push of a button or turn of a handle, the shelves move along the tracks to compact together or to create an aisle for accessing stored material. This option works best when you have a lot of books to store in a small area.
