Montel helped History Colorado completely reinvent its museum and anthropological storage with SmartShelf 4-Post hybrid shelving.
History Colorado provides the Denver community with a link to the past through expansive collections of archived documents, photographs and sundry artifacts. It is a commitment the organization has upheld for nearly 150 years.
But with such a varied catalog of sensitive items to curate and protect, the popular historical society, museum and educative center needed more from its storage area. See how Montel helped out History Colorado by providing SmartShelf® and MOBILEX® systems.
The past lives in the objects History Colorado preserves. As time marches on, however, the space required to store these objects grows ever scarcer. What the organization needed was an expandable shelving solution that utilized every cubic foot available.
Montel helped History Colorado completely reinvent its museum and anthropological storage with SmartShelf 4-Post hybrid shelving and a MOBILEX® Mobile Shelving System.
Built on more than 100 24-foot long mechanical-assist mobile shelving carriages, History Colorado’s new storage system eliminates aisles and maximizes capacity in the process. Moreover, 12-foot tall SmartShelf® 4-Post Hybrid Shelves offer user-friendly, incremental adjustability by the inch. Curators can customize shelving to the exact height and depth necessary for their items, further optimizing the system’s storage potential.
In response, Montel constructed a storage solution as diverse as History Colorado’s collections. Features included Aetnastak® Cantilever shelving for easy access to bulky items, textile adaptors to hold rolls of fabric, high-hinged double doors for cabinet storage, drawers, pull-out trays, garment rods for clothing, large bin dividers for picture frames, 4D Wide Span racking and more.
With a brand-new custom storage solution from Montel, however, History Colorado can segment its collections according to their contents. One module for photographs, one module for clothing, etc., so staff members know exactly where to look when the time comes to refresh displays.

Our storage area, before we had this beautiful new system, was really inconsistent, and the type of storage wasn’t necessarily suited to the type of objects that we needed to store.
