Having acquired new lab equipment, Schlumberger were refurbishing their lab and required extra storage facilities for the additional materials. CSI were directly invited to provide a solution by Schlumberger after forging a strong and long-lasting relationship over many years.
Following on from meetings with the architect who was designing the new lab area, CSI conducted a site survey and a comprehensive storage audit. This was to ensure that the finished solution flushly fit in the available area and had room for all of the desired equipment. CAD drawings of the final installation were then produced and reviewed by Schlumberger for approval.
Due to the varied dimensions of the equipment for the new lab, Dexion Hi280 Standard shelving was installed for its flexibility and ability to adapt to the items being stored. The experienced CSI team installed 29 bays of shelving that had a loading capacity of 150kg per shelf and 750kg per bay. The system was highly durable, being made of pre-galvanised steel, providing a long lasting storage solution. Steel cladding was fitted at the back and sides to provide extra security against items falling off, protecting Schlumberger’s expensive equipment. Quick and easy to install, the system was fully modular, allowing easy adaptation or integration with other storage systems in the future.
