Case-Style Shelving

Case-Style shelving, with full-height double wall construction, creates a bookcase-like appearance. A finished product with no exposed holes, slots or unfinished edges gives the unit smooth, clean lines. Case-Style shelving blends into any office environment with its wide range of available colors. The patented sliding divider adjusts easily to any shelf position while holding files securely in place. Shelves are free of any slots that are normally needed for dividers.

Children’s Area Shelving

Kids can be tough on shelves. And, they need them shorter. Our 42″ high divider-type shelving keeps children’s materials organized and within easy reach, while our strong, durable shelving units have field-proven stability.

Wilsonstak Multi-Level Systems

Borroughs’ Multi-Level systems are designed to maximize floor space by taking advantage of unused overhead space. These systems can be a cost effective alternative to new construction. Multi-Level Library bookstacks have up to six-level systems that are handicap accessible. The wire management systems are especially suited for high-tech research facilities. Borroughs engineers work closely with end users, architects and contractors to ensure the best installation of Multi-Level shelving systems.
