University of Leeds apponts Rackline

July 3, 2012

Storage manufacturer Rackline has completed a project worth over £400k installing its innovative Multitrak mobile storage system at University of Leeds.


Rackline’s Profile bays which have been installed into the University of Leeds.

The Newcastle-under-Lyme firm installed 2,233 Profile bays creating nearly 18,000 linear metres of storage, which will now be used to store books, across two floors of the newly built Michael Marks Building which also contains the Marks & Spencer Archive. 

Andy Reed, Technical and Projects Manager at Rackline, said: “We installed our mobile shelving units into the University as they wanted to make these particular books more accessible to students and staff.

“We won the tender process as our proposed system, which features units that are over three metres high, provided the largest capacity whilst at the same time the most cost-effective solution.

“The University has already installed other products from our range which have worked really well for them so we were delighted to be involved with another project.”

Rackline, established in 1984, designs and manufacturers innovative storage solutions to meet the general filing and archive requirements of libraries, museums, universities and colleges, hospitals as well as accountancy and solicitor firms and large retail and commercial head offices.

Rackline has recently completed projects for various universities including Reading, Glasgow and Aberdeen Universities.
