Mobile shelving designed to comply with BS 4971:2017 (Conservation and care of archive and library collections). Includes Bruynzeel shelving and storage systems mounted on Bruynzeel Compactus® mobile carriages with Turn-Handle operation. Static racks can be mounted on bases to maintain an equal height line throughout.


- Mobile carriages:

  • 40 x 150 x 40 x 2.5 mm cold rolled steel. Incorporates guide wheels and the appropriate number of running wheels.
  • Static bases match the mobile carriages in height, construction and appearance.
  • Rubber buffers will be fitted between all carriages. Floor stops will be fitted at all static racks.

- Running rails:

Galvanized cold rolled steel, 60 x 14 mm, with a plain, flat surface and levelled to 1:1000. Flush fixed in concrete during construction or surface mounted with surrounding infill flooring.

- Grout:

If used, non-shrink grout below rails, with a compressive strength of C25/30 (B35) or higher.

- Shelves (Bruynzeel Sysco):

Manufactured from un-oiled and certified Steel, and safe-edged for protection. Un-perforated load surface to comply with BS 4971:2017. Supported on four clips. Painted prior to being formed to ensure the shelves are 100% epoxy powdered.. Uprights have a face dimension of 30 mm and load capacity of 800 kg with a slot pattern which permits vertical shelf adjustment in increments of 20 mm.

- Drawers:

Factory welded construction with integral handles. Drawers run on telescopic slides with captive roller bearings.

- Filing cradles:

Factory welded construction with integral handles. Cradles run on telescopic slides with captive roller bearings - safely supports a uniformly distributed load (UDL) of 35 kg/m.

- Operation:

Carriage movement by rotating ergonomic 3-SPOKE drive handle mounted at the end of each carriage. Handles will have Spinner knobs to allow continuous operation. Positive drive ensures a smooth, even movement of either individual or multiple racks. The system is designed to allow all racks in a “bank” of mobile carriages to be moved simultaneously from one handle.

- Safety:

  • Safety aisle locks to be fitted to every carriage.
  • Optional Torque Limiters or safety slipping clutches (for heavily loaded systems) to prevent the over-winding of the handle when the system is closed and locked, to safeguard the mechanisms and prolong system life.

- Optional Aisle lighting:

Environment-friendly, integrated LED lighting system to automatically switch on and off, and provide in-aisle lighting to required LUX levels.

CE certified.
