RE: Rolling Files

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
>From what I recall (it has been a LONG time since I dealt with such file
storage), it will depend on both what is stored on the system (i.e. paper
files or medical records, which could include Xray films, etc) as well as
the size and type of the storage units (mainly the height).  If "only" paper
files and "normal" height, then 300 psf could be fine.  If medical records
including Xray film, then 300 psf might be light.

Morning.

 

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 .?

 

TIA
