Fife Council Libraries, Archives, Museums & Arts Department

In 2017, Fife Council announced that it would be sourcing steel storage systems for a one off project to fit out a new area for its Libraries, Art, Museums and Archives (LAMA) Department at its Bankhead Central Depot. The requirement was for the installation of high density storage systems to house various service items, such as museum objects, archives, textiles and fine art, and included the supply, delivery and installation of plan chests, mesh picture racking, library shelving, drawer cabinets and glazed-front object cabinets.

All products were made from steel to the BS EN 10130:1991 standard with a powder coated finish accredited to BS3900. The project manager Michael O’Gorman commented: “The LAMA storage requirements were varied and they required a range of solutions. The opportunity to procure such a broad range of storage systems from a single supplier was advantageous. The installation crew worked flexibly, working around other contractors on site and adapting to changing timescales. On completion, all necessary training was provided, with snagging items attended to quickly. I would recommend the Rotadex products and team to others.”
