Systems with ceiling rails

Free-standing – ceiling rails

Art storage systems for normal demands are frequently fitted with C-shaped steel rails. Robust rolling systems each possessing four ball-bearing-mounted steel rollers move in galvanised steel or aluminium rails. Four different models are available depending on the required bearing capacities.

Suspended – ceiling rails

These art storage systems have been suspended from the ceiling using steel supports. This method becomes necessary particularly when the building‘s design does not permit rails to be fastened directly to the ceiling. Of course, all storage walls may be protected against the effects of dust. Three-sided metal panelling prevents the penetration of dust as best as possible. The individual drawers may be protected by a lock system against unauthorized access.

Directly fastened – ceiling rails

The most favourable way of designing an art storage system is when it may be fastened directly to the ceiling. However, this requires that no ventilation or power lines obstruct such installation. Where new buildings are concerned, the steel profiles for the rail brackets may be concreted in as the ceiling is being complete. This allows installation costs to be reduced to a minimum.

The runners are available in steel (Model M-30 / M-40 / M-50) or in aluminium (DL-100). The models are fitted depending on the size of the sliding panels and the desired bearing capacities. The robust roller systems are available with steel or plastic coverings. Plastic coverings, however, reduce the bearing capacities by between 20 and 30%. Between three and four roller systems may be used for each sliding panel.

Guides and stoppers are small but they're important to safely moving sliding panels in and out. The doubly sprung floor rollers that run with their loads ensure that the sliding panels are precisely guided.

The grid mats are not riveted on but welded over the full area on to the element frame. This achieves the greatest possible stability in the sliding panels. A high-quality powder coating also protects the art storage system for years to come. The grid elements are available with double- or single-sided grid coverings.

The art storage system may also be planned as a three-sectioned system. This would permit storage capacities to be increased by 33% for the same space whereby the additional cost would be proportionately lower.

We manufacture our standardised grid elements using highly modern production systems. The sliding panels are assembled from grid elements in three different widths whereby each element is available in four heights. Sliding panels may, of course, be made to heights specified by customers.
