Library Book Shelves

Rethinking Library Shelves for Tomorrow’s Needs

Library bookshelves are a deceptively simple product — how difficult could it be to store books, after all?

When you begin to factor in operational requirements, space limitations, and current concerns, however, it fast becomes clear that there is more to fitting out a library space than meets the eye. At QUANTUM, we know libraries — and we're ready to pass that knowledge on to our clients through in-depth support and robust products.

Unlock the Benefits of Custom Shelving

One of our key abilities includes custom manufacturing capabilities. Why take advantage of this service? 

01 Unique Shelving Solution

Easily develop solutions for shelves that meet complex requirements, or achieve a demanded level of functionality within a limited space. Because we don't provide strictly "off the shelf" solutions (no pun intended), we can adapt our abilities to suit unique scenarios better.

02 Functional Shelving Built to Last

Invest in furniture and shelves designed to last for the long haul, even in heavy use environments such as children’s' libraries. Units on wheels allow for easy reconfiguring of the space, providing libraries with greater flexibility in adapting to changing needs over time. There's no telling when you will have the next opportunity to create or renovate a library: equip it correctly the first time.

03 Guaranteed Peace of Mind

Enjoy a ten-year-long warranty covering our workmanship against defect and failure — an industry-leading standard that delivers true peace of mind to our customers. Even years after installation, we will respond to warranty claims to ensure protection for your investment.
