Imagine running a modestly-sized video production company right in the comfort of your own home. Your crew shoots a variety of projects ranging from episodes of weekly documentary shows to special tutorial videos. One section of the house may be dedicated to editing facilities for example, but where do you even stash all those copies of your videos' master copies and scripts? When space is at a premium, that's where mobile shelving comes in.
If you are committed to using mobile shelves to archive your video materials, make sure to identify a room with ample floor area. A large section of this room will be used for the mobile shelves and their roller tracks. When considering how many shelves you need for the room, take a look at the expected load each can take and measure the dimensions of the chosen room space.
The frequency of use in the archival room will matter. If the preselected space has enough for, say, 15 shelf units jammed together, consider going for a dozen units. This will help free up space for a couple of aisles, especially when a certain number of people will pick up something in the archives. The room must be climate-controlled as well to preserve the material.
Setting up mobile shelves for your videos have potential for practicality when you need them. All it takes is a little foresight.
