Warwickshire County Record Office has a 30 year old mobile racking system
in two of its strongrooms that dates back to the early 1970s. It is known
as "Ingold Compactus", and uses electricity to power a steel cable which
runs in a track through the floor, with individual bays operated by a
clutch and gear system.
The racking is proving increasingly maintenance intensive, and the number
of companies familiar enough with it to service it is declining! If anyone
else uses the same racking, we would be very interested to compare notes!.
