Datum Turns Old Garage into New Storage for South Middleton Township

Share Article

Datum goes to new lengths—and heights—to convert old garage space into new bulk rack storage for a township municipal building (http://www.datumfiling.com).

Datum took the necessary time to ask the right questions, take all the necessary measurements, and provided insight into details that other manufacturers had overlooked.

Garages are means for storage for many people, but the South Middleton Township Municipal Building’s garage needed to accommodate much more than light overflow storage. During the renovation of their current building, South Middleton Township teamed with Datum Filing to convert a garage with sloping floors into a functional, bulk rack storage area with high density shelving. Datum was tasked with designing a system that could accommodate both current and future storage needs while working with the unique space layout.

Datum’s MobileTrak5® System, equipped with legal sized 4Post™ Shelving and rolled plan storage, addressed the township’s various storage requirements. Since the space was formerly a garage, the drastically sloping floor used for drainage created an additional design dilemma. Datum built a special raised platform to create a level surface for which the storage shelves could stand upon. An ADA compliant ramp was added for a smooth transition onto the ramp which made storage easily accessible to rolling carts, ladders, and wheelchairs. The township’s new storage system, standing over 10 feet tall, provides the municipal building with room for both current files and space for future growth.

“The attention to detail during the design process resulted in a system that was exactly what we wanted. [Datum] took the necessary time to ask the right questions, take all the necessary measurements, and provided insight into details that other manufacturers had overlooked,” said Brian O’Neill, Township Engineer.

Founded in 1968, Datum Filing is a second generation family-owned company that supplies storage and filing systems to meet almost any need. Starting with simple, desktop organization products, Datum has since grown into a 120,000 square foot facility located in Emigsville, Pennsylvania. Datum Filing Systems has earned an ISO 9001 Certification based off of its high standards of business quality and leadership.
