Subject: Shelving

We are in the process of building a climate controlled, secure space
for storage of our most "at risk" special collections. It is a room
that will not be used by the public. I'm wondering if anyone could
make recommendations for metal shelving. The ones I have found that
interest us are: "Seville classic" metal wire shelving units on
wheels. I have seen these used in kitchen areas but not in a special
collections environment. They are usually stainless steel wire, 4
shelves to a unit, both sides of the shelf unit are open, and the
shelves themselves are meshed so that air circulates. The shelves
themselves are large enough to accommodate two large record storage
boxes. These would be ideal, but before we order, just wondered what
others have done. Thanks for your feedback,
