School Libraries: Condensing Collections & Expanding Imagination
From kindergartens to colleges, school libraries often encounter two common dilemmas: a shortage of space and/or an unproductive space. What if there was a way to solve both problems at the same time? With Bradford Systems, a nationally recognized leader with nearly 50 years of experience in space-saving storage solutions, you can!
High-Density Mobile Storage
At Bradford Systems, one of our primary specialties is high-density mobile storage. Think of shelving like a set of dominoes. When spread out, these stacks of shelves take up a large volume of valuable floor space. Pack those shelves together, however, and you free up wasted space without eliminating important material.
That’s the idea behind high-density mobile storage, an ideal answer for a common problem among schools everywhere. Utilizing moveable carriages instead of static shelving, books and other items are easily retrievable at any time, and shelves can be condensed when not in use. Newly-freed space can then be utilized by your patrons for a variety of creative and collaborative activities.
Scalable and fully customizable to exceed the needs of businesses of all sizes, we design our educational storage solutions around your specific school. There is no “one size fits all” answer; whether your institution serves 10 or 10,000 students, we have a storage system designed just for you.
Types of High-Density Storage Systems
Depending on the size of your school and the amount of collections material on-site, Bradford Systems recommends one of our four types of high-density mobile storage:
- Standard Storage – Our Standard storage is our most popular system, packed with features and adaptable to just about any-sized space.
- Heavy Duty Storage – For larger and/or heavier items, we recommend Heavy Duty storage, capable of holding 7,000 to 30,000 pounds per carriage.
- Archival Storage – Our high-bay Archival storage system for floor-to-ceiling storage.
- Low Profile Storage – Our Low Profile storage system is perfect when relocation or expansion is in your organization’s future.
