Challenge

The traditional definition of a library as a collection of books, or a building to house a collection of books has become obsolete. Today’s academic, public, special, and research libraries are multifunctional learning centers and Internet gateways that provide a multitude of educational and cultural resources for the communities they serve. As the demand for increased and improved services grows, so grows the need to designate space for them and the patrons they attract.

Modular design, multiple track and decking systems, range of shelving options and large selection of locking features and accessories are just the start of what we have to offer.

Have you considered a track based system to reduce your real estate footprint?

Electronic units are equipped with safety devices that require no intervention by the user.  When a person enters into an isle, the system halts movement automatically. The safety system also detects items left on the floor in an open aisle.  And once the item is removed from the open aisle the system automatically resets itself for operation.
