During the construction of their new building, the PennDOT Materials Testing Facility decided that they needed a more efficient way of storing the various types of media they used every day. Their current system of lateral and vertical files, bulk shelving, and archival boxes stored in various places wasn’t going to work for their new building.

Datum chose 4Post and Stak-N-Lok Shelving combined with multiple MobileTrak5 Systems to solve their dilemma. This system allowed them the versatility to store various departments in centralized areas, eliminating retrieval time and keeping their materials orderly. The shelving choices were perfect for their assorted media of books, letter and legal files, research materials, archival boxes, bound prints, rolled files, CDs, disks, and more.

Some of the 4Post Shelving was equipped with pull out hanging file folder drawers for the top tab files that the agency didn’t want to convert. This way they could continue to file in them without making the change-over to end tab filing. The MobileTrak5 Systems were ideal for the future growth and expansion of PennDOT’s needs, all the while saving them money in construction costs by consolidating their storage areas and saving floor space.

Datum also provided PennDOT with a Mail Master mail sorting system. This made the public mail area more organized and easier to keep neat.

All of the colors for the units were carefully chosen to match existing furniture from another manufacturer and to coordinate with the carpet and paint colors in the building. This made the MobileTrak units blend perfectly into their new surroundings.
