Green Storage is the Solution to Decrease Your Library Carbon Footprint
Green storage is a very real solution to many libraries’ space and sustainability challenges. High Density Mobile Book Stack Shelves will help you overcome these challenges because you will be able to decrease your library’s carbon footprint in your collection storage area by as much as 50% or more. The concept of High Density Mobile Book Stack Shelves is green by its very nature; the shelves eliminate the floor space required for multiple aisles, which compacts storage into a smaller footprint while increasing capacity over stationary storage shelves.

High Density Mobile Book Stack Shelves Save a University Library Space and Money
A university library underwent a four-floor renovation and expansion. To decrease the library’s carbon footprint, the architects for the project specified High Density Mobile Book Stack Shelves to store the library’s collection. The 1.1-million-volume collection, which was consolidated from several campus locations, would have required 75,000 square feet had stationary shelving been used. Architects reduced the overall building footprint to 45,000 square feet simply by utilizing High Density Mobile Book Stack Shelves. The book stack shelves were designed into the new addition, saving 30,000 square feet and $6 million in construction cost savings, allowing the resulting structure to include a multi-floor atrium with an abundance of natural light.
