CASE STUDY: AlAraby TV
Bespoke Rax 1 Boltless Shelving for AlAraby TV
AlAraby TV burst onto screens from its new London home in 2014. The channel is a huge and ambitious investment in independent Arabic language media. Launched from a modest studio space in West London, 3 years on AlAraby TV has now moved to one of the largest TV production facilities in the capital.
As a result of this substantial investment in a new studio complex in London’s Park Royal Business Enterprise Area, AlAraby TV required bespoke shelving units to house a variety of TV production equipment.
AlAraby searched online for a specialist storage solutions manufacturer and selected ShelvingDirect. Following a telephone consultation with ShelvingDirect’s Customer Services Advisor Mark Hevingham, ShelvingDirect designed a layout and recommended a product to meet AlAraby TV’s specific storage and dimensional requirements. AlAraby selected a bespoke version of the Rax1 painted heavy duty hand loaded shelving, manufactured to a bespoke design.
The Rax 1 shelving was designed with punched backs and sides to facilitate air flow and allow for the safe storage of a variety of TV production equipment. Its boltless assembly makes it ideal for flexible use in all types of storage environments. All the shelving was installed by ShelvingDirect and manufactured in ShelvingDirect’s 50,000 sq ft manufacturing facility, which is equipped with the latest steel conversion and powder coating equipment.
ShelvingDirect designed the layout, manufactured and installed all the shelving to the requested dimensions. The new storage facility at Park Royal now comprises 10 specially made Rax 1 units (each H3000 x W2315 x D762mm with 4 levels), all with perforated side and back panels. All finished in white, the units provide the storage capacity to meet the demands of a growing TV network.
