Dexion National Sales Manager, Michael Cumner describes how library
shelving and its associated accessories have changed over time as the needs of
libraries have developed and expanded.
Mr Cumner explains that libraries have evolved into a community space
with areas demarcated for different purposes from the traditional books,
newspapers and magazines to computers, CDs, DVDs, and now tablets and other technologies.
Apart from a core range of library shelving systems that meet standard
library requirements, Dexion offers customised solutions and a range of
accessories to suit every application, accommodating all library materials, media
formats and specific storage needs.
Different from archival storage for instance, where there is only need for
one shelf type, library storage needs to consider several variables including assorted
heights, sizes and weights of the library materials; different floor layouts; and
unique display designs.
Dexion’s Library Shelving 2 takes space optimisation to a whole new
level, and is available in a range of heights, widths and depths to make full
and efficient use of all available space, allowing flexibility in adapting to both
stationary and mobile storage applications.
Dexion’s library shelving system can be customised to suit specific
display and storage requirements from standard shelving through to canopies
that protect books from dust; specific DVD and CD storage racks; magazine
display shelves; and browser bins for children’s easy viewing.
All Dexion library shelving systems are constructed using steel to
ensure strength and durability while avoiding moisture retention, a very
important consideration when dealing with sensitive materials such as books,
magazines and newspapers.
Dexion’s modular design is based on standard, easily assembled
componentry, facilitating expansion and reconfiguration as the library grows
and requirements change.
Key features of Dexion’s Library Shelving 2 systems include extensive
range of accessories to meet diverse library display and storage requirements; modular
design facilitating easy expansion and/or reconfiguration; clip-together
construction for quick and easy installation and relocation; steel construction
for complete strength, stability and rigidity; powder-coat finish for
durability; shelf carrying capacity tested and rated to AS2273-1979; end-panels
to define library sections and identify aisle content; timber dress panels for
custom fitouts; slotted posts and wall-channel allowing easy adjustment at
38.1mm increments; and optional overhead braces to provide anti-tip security.
