May 18, 2012
Montel, a global leader of high-density mobile storage shelving system solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Solutions de rangement Prisma as the prime sub-contractor to supply the VL1 new compact storage system – Lot 1 – Loyola Campus at Concordia University. Montel will also provide installation support and electrical start-up assistance.
Wanting to optimize the storage space for the library collection at the Vanier Library on Loyola campus, the awarded contract to Montel will involve the supply of its SafeAisle® high-density powered mobile storage system and Aetnastak® cantilever library shelving system.
Concordia University’s security features requirements for the new motorized compact storage system are very critical. Wanting the latest security technology available in the industry, LED Guard Technology (LGT) safety system covering the whole aisle surface shall be present in each aisle. The safety system shall be provided to prevent any carriage movement if the system detects users or objects anywhere in the open aisle. In addition, the safety system shall provide complete aisle-detection. Finally, the safety system shall be totally passive requiring no conscious effort to activate the safety system.
“We are very honored by the confidence entrusted by Concordia University towards our latest generation of powered mobile storage systems,” said Jérôme Doucet, Vice President Sales & Marketing of Montel. “It is with great pleasure that we will work with Solutions de rangement Prisma and Concordia University, to successfully implement this important library storage project at the Vanier Library on Loyola campus.”
Following a major space planning project prepared in June 2011 for Concordia University Libraries, the University decided to move forward with Phase 1 to increase library shelving storage capacity at the Vanier Library on Loyola campus. Phase 1 will offer an estimated storage capacity of 30,000 to 35,000 linear feet, almost tripling the existing storage space.
