3 Best Montel Storage Solutions for Your Local Library
If 2020 and 2021 have taught us anything, it is the value of essential public services like libraries.
1. Mobilex and SafeAisle mobile storage systems
This wouldn’t be a “best of” list without the strongest and most efficient storage solutions on the market today.
Mobilex mechanical assist mobile storage and SafeAisle powered mobile storage are the pinnacle of high-density library shelving, cutting out the aisles and condensing an entire catalog into half the footprint. As libraries around the world balance the size of their on-site book catalogs against a desire to reclaim space for digital media, makerspaces, and more, every cubic foot matters. Mobilex and SafeAisle prevent librarians from compromising on either.
2. SmartGlide push-and-glide lateral modular shelving
Whether single or double-deep, SmartGlide shelving is an easy way to enhance the traditional library experience.
From a distance, it looks like high-quality static shelving. But upon closer inspection, this rail-and-wheel shelving has adjustable hardware and anti-tip technology, knocking all other shelving out of the stacks.
3. Aetnastak cantilever library shelving
Cantilever shelving is about as versatile as any shelf can be. Put it on casters, add book dividers, select any of the many finishes for the end panels—the only limit is your imagination.
And Aetnastak shelving is great for the diversity of media that a library can offer, especially Gondola Aetnastak cantilever shelving. This front-facing shelving system can accommodate books and periodicals, but it can also hold and present other types of physical media, such as DVDs, video games, magazines, and more.
