Cantilever shelves on powered high density mobile system solves problems

cantilever shelves on powered high density systemThe library for a prestigious law school seen as the gateway between the school and downtown could be expanded no more and was in need of a new home. This is because, over the course of half a century, several expansions had taken place on campus in close proximity to the library. And, at this point, the already existing stacks had reached 170 percent of their capacity. So many additions to the school left it visually confused and in need of a new identity. Additional space for library collections, faculty and students was also required. Another addition was built to accommodate this need. However, since the available space they had to work with was small in size, appropriate compensations had to be made in order for the building to function as it was supposed to. A few levels of the new building were designed to function below ground level. This effectively reduced the physical footprint of the building, while allowing for better use of the space because cantilever shelves on powered high density mobile system were brought in and used throughout the building's lowest level. This adequately solved their lack of space problem and worked to give space new identity. Watch how easy cantilever shelves are to assemble.

Why cantilever shelves on powered high density mobile system work

Cantilever shelves on powered high density mobile system work well in this situation to give space new identity because it re-purposes space that was previously wasted to accommodate excess aisles. This is made possible because the shelving is mounted to carriages that move from side to side, effectively removing excess aisle space. Pushing a button is all that is required to operate cantilever shelves on powered high density mobile system. This prompts the system to condense, creating an increased capacity for storing the library's extensive collection. The cantilever shelves on powered density mobile system, measuring 10-feet in height, provided the library the flexibility it needed to store everything in one place, plus room to expand in the future. It works to save space so well that there was even room to better accommodate the needs of students and faculty. Space on the upper level was converted into faculty offices, lecture halls, student study areas and, even, a cafe.

Cantilever shelves on powered high density mobile system contribute to sustainable design

give space new identityWith the assistance of the cantilever shelves on powered high density mobile system, the library was able to significantly decrease the visual impact that was present before. The shelving also largely contributed to the recycled content value of the project, helping the building meet the criteria needed to be LEED® Gold Certified. And, the existence of a roof-top garden, further highlighted its sustainable design. Watch the high density mobile system concept video
