Montel’s Aetnastak® cantilever library shelving system is an industry reference. Addressing your current and future storage needs simultaneously, Aetnastak shelving systems offer a wide range of accessories and practical features. Sections can be reconfigured, lengthened, shortened, relocated, or joined to existing units easily and without adding extra parts.
Montel’s Aetnastak cantilever library shelving system offers numerous advantages. Concerning safety and reliability, the welded frames provide strength and rigidity to the product. Flush base shelves with the top surface of the bottom spreader channel allow continuous storage surface capacity. Meeting and exceeding Library Technology Report approved requirements, shelves support 50 lbs. per linear foot or 244 kg per square meter. In order to increase strength, eliminate sharp edges, and reduce risk of injuries, shelf edges have a fourth bend at the front and the back. To protect books from being damaged when reshelving, shelf brackets have a radial edge. Connected frames form an enclosed tube that prevent books from being inserted within the tube and allow electrical wire to be concealed within the post when needs. Finally, Aetnastak cantilever library shelving meets and exceeds the Uniform Building Code requirements for seismic zones, ensuring user’s safety in case of earthquakes.
Flexibility is an important aspect with Montel’s Aetnastak products. Kickstrips adjust vertically and are recessed under the bottom shelf to provide toe space and clean appearance. For future expansion or reorganization, stacks can be modified from double faced or vice-versa by removing or adding shelves on one side of the stack. The system can be easily relocated since free standing shelving can be removed from a range and used elsewhere without adding parts. To ensure stability on uneven floors, adjustable threaded levelers can be used.
