Re: Rolling Files

Paper media is 33 pcf, film media is 50 pcf.  I would use these number to derive the load based on actual shelving size. In a fully stacked position, there is no access, so basically w x d x h for the entire unit x the applicable media density.
The media densities are from CBC T-24 table 16A-B footnote 12.

Does anyone have an idea what to use for "rolling files" live load?  I have
a # of 14kPa (300psf+/-).

"Rolling files" are such as moveable library files and book stands.
Possibly moveable warehouse storage shelving .?
