Storage Systems

Department of Defence (Kildare)

As part of the Irish government decentralisation programme, The Department of Defence moved to a new headquarters located in Newbridge, Co. Kildare. After a vigorous tender process, Storage Systems Limited was awarded the contract to provide a mobile storage shelving solution to house all the defence forces files.

This installation consists of 750 bays of Bruynzeel Compactus Mobile Shelving creating one central archive area within the new building. Each compactus mobile shelving base is equipped with a push button safety aisle lock which when pressed by an operator will prevent the movement of the mobile base while an person is in the aisle picking a file. Each shelf level is fitted with full height dividers to create individual file storage compartments within each bay.

One unique feature to this project is the colour finish of the steel decorative panels at the front - a mixture of red and white chosen by the client for this project. As part of the contract, Storage Systems Limited also re-enforced all of the existing raised access floors to ensure they could safely support the additional weight of the fully laden mobile shelving.
