4 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN DESIGNING A COMPREHENSIVE STORAGE SOLUTION:

MEDIA (STUFF)

Whether it is File folders in 4 post shelving, Library books in cantilever shelving, Long guns or Hand guns in gun racks, Police Evidence on wide span shelving or Artifacts in roll out drawers.

The “Stuff” being stored will impact how it is stored.

CAPACITY

While it is important to provide adequate capacity for the existing “stuff” it is just as important to plan for future growth.

ACCESS

How many people and how often will they access your “Stuff” throughout the day, is there a need for security or a controlled access system? Will all or some parts of your “Stuff” need to be locked? Are there special considerations needed for how the “Stuff” is stored. Will the system be in a centralized location?

COST

Provide a space efficient, cost effective solution that can be expanded or adapted to changing media in the future.

The cost of the material, freight and installation of your solution could be offset by the savings realized in less square footage needed and the subsequent savings in utilities and insurance.
