Library Cantilever Shelving  

cantilever_shelving_library_spacesaver_montel_books_storageThe ultimate in modern library shelving

Franklin Mills Cantilever Shelving offers a growing facility the ability to develop stack systems to adhere to any volume size assortment while maintaining the systems integrity. Our cantilever shelving is a solid reference for experts in library design.  Our cantilever shelving system offers a wide range of accessories and practical features. Sections can be reconfigured, lengthened, shortened, relocated, or joined to existing units easily and without adding any extra parts. Franklin Mills offers products that adapt to all types of media.

Cantilever shelving eliminates the front posts associated with conventional shelving. Heavy-duty frames support the adjustable shelving from the back instead of the sides creating a clear unobstructed view of the media.  Shelves can be slotted or plain, straight or sloped, and do not have the view obstructing uprights needed in other systems. Franklin Mills cantilever shelving creates three times more filing inches per square foot than conventional filing equipment, keeping books clearly visible and close at hand, greatly reducing retrieval time. 

Features & benefits:

  • Maximum filing inches - Uses space that other filing equipment can't use.
  • Modular construction - Individual units, no starters or adders.
  • Maximum visibility - No time consuming drawers to open and close.
  • Easy Access to books - Flexibility for optimum storing books and various media.
  • Furniture quality finish - Looks great in any environment, even after years of heavy use


There are many accessories and special type shelves that fit onto the cantilever center frame. Special shelves for periodicals, paperback books, audio tapes, CDís, audio books and DVD collections can all be added to supplement standard book shelving. Plus special display racks and various way to store newspapers.
