Environment

Racking

  • The racking that we use is modular in construction to enable us to alter dimensions to suit individual client requirements.
  • Each box location within the racking is identified by a location code which denotes;
  • The site number
  • Area within a site
  • Rack and row within an area
  • Lift (shelf number) within the Rack
  • Position on the shelf

Each shelf has a barcode with the above information attached for use in identification of storage and retrieval processes. All barcode labels used are specifically printed, vinyl laminated and possess high quality adhesive for longevity. Each lift of shelving is equipped with different colour barcodes and the boxes that are stored within the shelves have the same colour sticker applied to that of the shelf. This serves as an additional visual check.

The above barcode configuration allows us to accurately pinpoint the location of each box. Each box has the same static location for life (when the box is retrieved it returns to the same location on return). We do not operate a random filing away system which is common practice within our industry.

Dedicated Areas

For those clients that require additional peace of mind we can provide dedicated caged areas for their archive material. For some clients we have even placed their boxes in number order on request.
