To maximise use of space in a room with a ceiling height of 6 metres, the ultimate space efficiency was offered by the Bruynzeel’s two-tier mobile shelving system. This double decker archive storage solution combined the best space efficiency in higher buildings, while maintaining ease of access for archivists and employees. Due to the very slim profile of the integral mezzanine floor, more shelving levels can be achieved when compared to an installation using a bulky and expensive structural mezzanine. The shelving system can accommodate more than 3,000 linear metres of records from the municipal assemblies of Haderslev, Aabenraa, Sønderborg and Tønder. The double decker mobile shelving system is electronically operated and has integral lighting over the bays, which turn on automatically when you open an aisle. The advantage of the electronic mobile system, according to the Historical Archive, is that “in addition to the space saving aspect, the system can be locked, an important safety aspect as Historical Archives store material may contain sensitive personal information”.
