Talk about your architectural excellence! This innovative Spacesaver blueprint storage solution incorporates creative thinking with solid results.
In order to provide ample, safe protection for North Carolina State's architectural drawings, twenty foot PVC tubes were cut down to four feet and then placed into the shelving openings, as shown. 4" diameter tubes were placed within 48" wide shelving units and 6" diameter tubes were placed inside 36" wide units to accommodate various drawing lengths. The shelving solution itself stands an impressive ten feet tall!
Each drawing is carefully rolled and wrapped, then held inside the PVC tubing for safe storage. When stacked between the shelving uprights, the tubes require no PVC cement as tubing will not move or shift.
Having installed several solutions of this nature for North Carolina State, this Cool Install is garnering interest and recognition from other universities already!
