Functional as well as attractive
The overbend design of the shelf lip hides shelf supports while the double wall construction of its uprights conceals keyhole slots to present a clean, attractive appearance that complements any library decor. The flush interior to the end panel also prevents books from slipping behind uprights obscuring the titles. Utilizing a unique interlocking keyhole slot design, shelf supports are secured to the inside wall, leaving a smooth clean appearance. It’s strong and rigid construction carries even the heaviest of book collections safely. Franklin Mills also features a line of elegant wood-clad library shelving. Custom work surfaces can be added to compliment any interior design. A full range of accessories are available to meet every functional requirement.

Case style vs. four post shelving
Case style looks and works like 4-post but, with a couple of important differences. All Case Style uprights are closed and include a second steel panel, welded into the inside of each upright. This second steel panel not only strengthens the upright but, acts as a top-to-bottom filler piece which naturally prevents books from creeping behind corner posts. This eliminates the need for end of shelf dividers. Case Style file shelving costs about the same as 4-Post (with the extra dividers) but is stronger and much more attractive. Case Style works well in medical and corporate libraries (also known as "special libraries") where magazine type journals and periodicals make up the lion’s share reference material. Binders also store well in Case Style shelving. In each of these cases the media is of consistent size and once shelf spacing is set, few changes will be needed.
