Specialized Records Storage
Records aren’t “One-Size-Fits-All” – they are as varied in size and shape as the data contained within.
If all records were printed on 8 ½ x 11 paper, storing them would be simpler—there would be only one size box, one kind of storage environment, and cookie-cutter storage solutions would rule the day.
But life is more complicated than that, and so is the configuration of the records that document it:
- Legal documents have an extra 3 inches in page length per page
- Medical records include films that have their own dimensions and storage guidelines
- Building plans are measured in feet not inches and need to be stored flat, unless they are rolled onto a tube, and
- Digital media can be many different sizes/thicknesses and require different atmospheric conditions
And that’s just for starters.
Records come in all shapes and sizes—so should storage options.
At The File Room, we have the storage space, shelving and specialized storage compartment configurations to handle every conceivable shape and size of records, from those that must lay flat to those that are best stored upright, and from those that are best in drawers to those that belong on shelves. Whether your records are stored in containers that are square, rectangular, triangular or round, we’ve got you covered.
We’re also equipped to handle media that needs to be kept in a climate-controlled environment, whether at cooler temperatures or lower humidity—we’ll give your records whatever atmosphere they need to extend their useful lives and protect your critical data.
We’ll store your records the RIGHT way!
You can’t shoehorn your critical, specialized records into containers not designed to hold them and store them in configurations they’re not able to withstand and expect them to last. At The File Room, we store your records in the most appropriate size and shape containers, in the most favorable configuration and at the optimum environmental conditions to extend their lives as long as possible.
Isn’t that what records storage is REALLY all about? To learn more about our specialized records storage options and what the recommended storage containers and configuration is for your records, whatever format they may be, please contact us today!
