Mobile shelving can be opened & closed when required,
therefore requiring only one aisle for access. This
means capacity within a given area can be substantially
increased.
Comparison of storage costs is most easily achieved by
calculating a storage factor for each type of equipment.
This is simply the result of dividing the capacity (in
linear metres) by the area occupied (in square metres)
including the area necessary to access the records. The
higher the storage factor the more efficient the
equipment.    
For example:
››
  
A four drawer filing cabinet holds 2.2 linear metres of
records and occupies 0.75 sq m.
These examples are based on a like for like area.
MAXIMISING THE AVAILABLE SPACE
Mobile shelving is the most effective way to store records.  
This can be shown in the table below, where a working example
shows the different options for storing 105 metres of filing.
48 four drawer filing
cabinets would provide
approximately 105      
linear metres of filing.
