Paper documentation storage systems

Barcelona, Tuesday 20th of September 2016 – Nowadays it’s very normal to externalize the firms’ documentation storage. The main benefit of subcontracting these services is that of reducing costs since storage space is an expensive resource. The users of the companies that provide these services are varied, from hospitals to law firms, which implies that the characteristics of the documentation archived also varies. According to these characteristics one or other or the combination of various paper documentation storage systems must be used.

Paper documentation storage systems

The main systems are the following:

Catwalk system: is a multi-level storage system. It’s ideal for archives with a high level of consultation since it permits quick access to them. Employees can consult the records without the need of auxiliary means which implies that in a same aisle various can work at the same time. It’s characterized by narrow corridors.

Man-up system: is a system with uninterrupted racking to the ceiling. Access to the records is made via order pickers. It’s ideal for semi-active records and distinguishes itself for its narrow aisles that optimize storage space.

Pallet rack system: is the typical pallet storage racks system for which a fork lift truck is necessary. It’s generally used for inactive documentation.

Vault system: consists in a closed room equipped with a high safety system as well as a fire prevention and detection system which usually doesn’t use water but gas in order to avoid the destruction of the stored material. This system is suitable for material that is considered very valuable.
