When planning what type of archive shelving solution is best for your business, the following should be considered:
size and format of the items to be stored
how long will these items be in storage and what access is needed to them
conditions that the items needs to be stored in to keep them safe
General recommendations are that shelving to be used for archiving purposes should be:
made of a durable coated metal e.g. powder coated shelving
fit for purpose i.e. the width and height of the shelves or racks accommodate the items comfortably. In the case of large format items like maps and plans, these should be stored flat if possible
structurally sound, preferably seismically compliant, and lockable if the items are restricted.
laid out in a way that allows air flow around the shelves and keeps the items off the floor and away from external walls, ceiling lights and sprinklers.
When planning, ensure enough aisle space is available for staff to remove and reshelve items safely, there is a safe space for processing of items, moveable shelves can be fixed when working inside a row, and staff can exit quickly in an emergency.
