watch out for the dreaded spacesaver file systems.
i've seen the numbers in some of our storage rooms (particularly microfilm and xray in medical facilities) approach 450psf !
code also notes that you should calculate volume of shelf space at 45pcf ? and use the greater of 150psf or the actual applied average based on the calc, does it not ?

File storage load is similar to library stack room load which
is 150 psf. There usually are aisles and shelves for easy
retrieval of files/books. There is also a safety factor of 1.70 in case of unexpected additional live load.

Anyone think it excessive to use 250 psf LL for file storage floor use in a commercial building?
