Public Library - City of Vancouver

Leading Public Library in Canada Uses Montel’s Shelving Systems.

Challenge

When the city of Vancouver decided to construct a new seven story state-of-the-art showcase public library, previous outgrown library space was a major concern for library officials.

Objective

The city of Vancouver was looking for fixed and compact library shelving systems with special seismic requirements to store books and meet special multimedia needs.

Solution

Montel’s custom-design solution involved the supply and installation of innovative seismic zone cantilever and powered mobile shelving systems with sophisticated safety features due to the public access.
