Spacesaver will also be showcasing a recent library repurposing installation at the historic St. Louis Central Public Library in St. Louis, MO.

Featured Project: The St. Louis library’s collection, made up of almost four million items, was originally stored on an old self-supporting structure, ten tiers high. As part of the renovation, the space was opened up, much of the collection was moved into high-density storage systems and the rest was left exposed behind glassed-in enclosures. The collection was condensed onto three floors, vs. the ten, due to the use of high-density mobile storage both onsite and offsite, creating more room for other repurposed spaces in the building, like collaboration areas, an auditorium and a café.

Featured Products: XTend High Bay Storage Systems. Libraries, off-site book depositories, and archival record centers all face the same paradox: squeezing ever-increasing, irreplaceable book collections and records into ever-decreasing storage space. The solution is the innovative and proven XTend® High-Bay shelving system. Intelligently designed and built for stable storage of book trays and archival boxed records for optimal flexibility, space efficiency, economy, accessibility, protection, safety and containment. XTend is also a great solution for evidence storage and museum applications. Spacesaver offers fully tested and proven XTend High-Bay solutions in both static and mobile options.
