Law Enforcement Takes To The Air – Without A Pilot

Law Enforcement Takes To The Air – Without A Pilot

Police evidence rooms are notoriously overcrowded, and finding additional storage space is always a challenge.  Adding storage racks right up to the ceiling can be a great space solution where the building codes permit, but it creates another problem – how to get to those hard to reach upper racks without the safety liability of ladders. Here’s how one police department solved both those problems: http://bit.ly/1j2vQVB

It’s Not Just Pie in the Sky – It’s Ice Cream

It’s Not Just Pie in the Sky – It’s Ice Cream

We humans tend to ignore what’s overhead. Our spatial awareness is determined by our eyes and our hands – whatever we can see and reach – and we don’t think much about the air space above us. That is, until we need more space for storage, as this ice cream manufacturer discovered (http://bit.ly/1esHslp). The company was enjoying increased demand for their products, but their freezer warehouse was full to the doors…until management added a second level of storage racks atop the first level, along with an automated storage and retrieval system. Now their pallets of ice cream reach toward the sky, without a larger warehouse footprint and without increased real estate costs.

Running out of storage space? Look up!

Is It Art? Museums Are Making Storage Part of Their Displays

Is It Art? Museums Are Making Storage Part of Their Displays

Artist Andy Warhol became famous for revealing fine art in practical objects like soup cans. Today some museums are following Warhol’s lead and putting their storage areas and systems on display. At the soon-to-open Broad museum in Los Angeles, director and chief curator Joanne Heyler queried, “How in a building can we make it clear to visitors that storage and conservation are a core part of a museum’s function?” Her answer: Let them see the storage racks.

For design afficionados,  this trend comes as no surprise. Modern museum storage is a remarkable combination of efficiency, adaptability, and craftsmanship – it’s definitely a work of art worthy of display. View the full story at http://lat.ms/1jhywS2.
