Montel's Storage Solutions Used to Optimize University of Texas-Pan American's Library.

Challenge

As the University of Texas-Pan American had a growing number of students and was outgrowing its previous library space, it needed to find a solution fitting its storage needs.

Objective

In order to optimize the needed library work areas for staff and students, UTPA wanted to create more library space for the growing collection of print materials.

Solution

Montel’s custom-design engineered library storage solution involved the supply and installation of its WIRED High-Density Powered Mobile shelving system mounted with Aetnastak® Cantilever Library Shelving.

  • 136 WIRED® high-density powered carriages.
  • 484 double face Aetnastak® Cantilever library shelving sections providing 206,220 linear inches of storage.
