Action Storage provide shelving for Aberdeen Library
02 September 2010
Action Storage installed the versatile archive shelving system within the Aberdeen Diocesan Library that can grow as the Library grows.Storage equipment specialist Action Storage Systems is regularly called upon to provide versatile shelving arrangements that are customised for all manner of enterprises and organisations. Recently it assisted The Aberdeen Diocesan Library to install archive shelving in its new home in the chapel of a recently refurbished church.
As well as being sturdy and expandable, the library wanted shelving that would compliment both the chapels' modern refurbishments and its antiquarian book collection. Action Storage was happy to oblige. After discussing the shelving system requirements, Action Storage drew up plans on a shelving arrangement that would maximise the available space.
A key consideration was that the archive shelving would have to withstand the heavy weight of hundreds of books and valuable papers. With donations from the public and other churches expected, the shelving system would also need to be expandable to cope with increases in storage demands. Action Storage proposed an arrangement comprising of its versatile Supershelf™ shelving and Technic library shelving. These both provide easily adjustable shelving units which can be customised to maximise the available space in any storage area.
The Supershelf™, in particular, has exceptionally durable shelves, able to hold up to 500kgs per shelf, ensuring a large quantity of heavy antique books can be stored safely.
As well as libraries, the Supershelf™ and Technic shelving can be used in a wide variety of environments, including offices, archives, schools and retail areas.
Prior to the move into the new chapel, the Diocesan Library made arrangements to temporarily store the book stock in a church undercroft. Consequently, it was crucial that the archive shelving was installed on schedule, ready for when the books needed to be moved.
The Diocesan Library is run by volunteers, and consequently they required assistance to ensure the shelving was installed correctly and safely. Thanks to its in-house installation team, Action Storage was able to install the Supershelf™ and Technic shelving systems upon delivery and ensure the installation was completed safely and securely.
Keeper of the Aberdeen Diocesan Library & Honorary Archivist, Stuart Donald;
“Although our eventual date of erection was months distant from the order stage, contact with Action Storage re-assured a positive outcome. The installation particularly was very smooth with a small team of fitters who admirably managed to overcome all obstacles, finishing on time.”
As well as being a big improvement on their old wooden shelving, The Library was impressed with the shelvings' sturdiness and the fact that it fitted in so well with the chapels' modern refurbishments and equally so with their collection of 18th & 19th century engravings and pictures.
With 20 foot high ceilings, the library now has a versatile shelving system that can be easily expanded and has the ability to grow as the library grows.
