Adaptable, Mobile Storage Created for College Library

26 Jun 2018

Faculty and staff wanted to create adaptable and aesthetically pleasing spaces on the main floor of this new college library, so they opted for Spacesaver’s A-Frame carts and cantilever carts. The shelving units have the appearance of stationary shelving combined with the flexibility of mobile carts.

Upper floors were fitted with taller stationary cantilever shelving, and a compact mobile system was installed in the archives area. All shelving units in the public areas were finished with custom wood end panels to coordinate with the rest of the library’s interior design.  See below for what resulted:

During the planning and design process, the Chicago-based Spacesaver distributor consulted with faculty and staff to understand their needs and help create the optimal solution. Spacesaver’s in-house engineering and manufacturing teams worked with the distributor to coordinate product design, manufacture, and installation.  Contact us today for more information!
