Project: BS5454 : 2000 Archive.

Product: Clearstore shelving on Maxstor mobile bases.

Material Stored: Archive boxes, books and maps.

Brief

To design a mobile storage system, fully compliant with the requirements of BS5454:2000.

This entailed carrying out a detailed survey of the stored items and then designing a system to accommodate the variety of different types of items, including archive boxes, ledgers, and maps.

All the stored items needed to be available for public access, requiring reference areas to be included within the storage area—utilizing work surfaces with low-height shelving below and additional map storage above.

Through extensive consultation with the client, a scheme was designed and approved. The installation and commissioning of the system was carried out in close coordination with the client and construction team, resulting in successful project completion, on budget, and fit for purpose (including compliance with BS 5454:2000).
