Shelving. Sunday , July 09th , 2017 - 21:07:03 PM
One shelving idea I do like is described as Patent Office Shelving, made by Retrouvius. This is an adjustable shelving system manufactured in cast iron, some provided as single sided and others as double-sided. These shelves retail at around $955.00 so, although they are described as being retail shelving, at that price and given that they are attractive enough, I would use them at home. They would certainly be strong enough to take the weight of most of my books! The Kalusto company sell a good range of attractive shelving, although I certainly would not describe them as being cheap. One wall shelving unit in their range is called the Chicane Wall Hanging Book Shelf, part of the Tonelli Collection. It retails at a cool $1,251.00 - and, when you think these shelves will only take up to 5kg in weight, I think that is a shelf too far!
Due to the considerable weight that a multiple number of books can have upon a shelf, it is important for libraries to integrate shelving units that are both durable and yet easily accessible. Both traditional and modern units are usually manufactured using hardwearing materials that are effectively damage-proof and strong enough to ensure any number of books can be stored upon an individual shelf without the potential threat of a shelf collapsing under their weight. As the supplying companies or library would be liable for any injuries caused by an unsuitable archive storage facilities, that either could not hold the number of stocked books required or which had been installed incorrectly, only illustrates the importance of ensuring that libraries specify the required standard of shelving units.
"Closed" or coded dates are packing numbers or dates, so that manufactures know when and where the product was produced. This is helpful in the event of a recall. The product may be stamped with a date preceded by the letters "MFG." This tells you the date it was packed. You may have bought the product a month ago, but this date could tell you that it has been sitting in a warehouse or on a store shelf for several months.
