Argosy Libraries Dublin Ireland - Dexion Multi-Tier Picking Solutions Reference

Argosy Libraries Ltd is Ireland's largest independent book wholesaler, carrying a wide range of Irish interest books & maps as well as a full range of UK published trade titles.

The Solution

When they decided to expand to a new 2,000sq metre distribution warehouse in Finglas, North Dublin, Storage Systems Ltd was awarded a major contract to provide a complete storage solution which included a 2,070m² Dexion Two Tier Structural Steel Mezzanine with floor levels at 3m, 6m and 9m high.

On each floor level we installed Dexion HI-280 Shelving to store all types of books, leaflets & magazines. A series of gravity roller and inclined belt conveyors were installed to convey goods from the goods receiving area to the different mezzanine floor levels and also from the mezzanine floor levels to the despatch area. The use of conveyors cuts out a lot of manual handling and has significantly speeded up the picking process. This in turn has had positive implications for health and safety issues associated with manual lifting.
