An ageing filing system, made up of traditional five drawer cabinets, was proving not only unattractive but also cumbersome and inefficient for the team at the Department for Transport in London.
With hundreds of files and periodicals, all of which need to be accessed on a daily basis, there was a clear need for a new up to date filing system. “When we combined the amount of space we needed for all our general paperwork with the amount of storage space required by individuals, the amount was phenomenal.” “Explained Charlotte Bramham – Tate, assistant manager for moves and changes at the Department for Transport’s head office. We made the decision to move away from traditional filing systems towards a more space - saving solution, to improve our working environment both in visual and practical term.”
“After consultations with several storage solution providers, we met with rackline, who offered us both a faster turnaround time and a more robust product than their competitors – two factors which were very important to us” said Charlotte. Rackline, specialists in storage solutions, installed it’s popular Monotrak Mobile systems into the main storeroom at the Victoria Street office, immediately giving more capacity and ease of access. The system is laid directly onto the floor which means there isn’t any need for floor preparation. If future relocation is required it will be a simple operation without incurring any reparation work or residual damage. The system operates with just one track at the rear so there are no trip hazards in the aisles. Axcess cabinets were provided next to workstations at both Victoria Street and Head Office premises for individual employees- and these units alone, with their small footprint and space saving accessories, compress storage requirements into the smallest space possible. A 90mm full internal width is unsurpassed and combined with 12.5mm pitches provides the means to store the maximum amount of files or other items. Axcess cabinets are available in seven different heights and are all1000mm wide and 500mm deep.
