Poster Storage Cabinet gets “Green” light at Audubon Center
At first the Poster storage cabinet at the Jamestown Audubon was a blueprint cabinet. Including blueprints of the 3-story nature center building, including a nature store, live fish, reptiles and amphibians, solar panels, elevator, and all the electric, HVAC, offices and conference rooms. In addition, there is documentation of the over 600 acres of wetlands. Together with 5 miles of trails, bird blinds, and outbuildings.
As a result, of this need the Audubon chose the Ulrich Minifile to store these blueprints. Because the Minifile provided plenty of storage space. While also providing fire and water protection. Also, the large file folders provide plenty of organization and document protection. Finally, this blueprint cabinet is on heavy duty casters and easily rolls anywhere in the facility. Allowing the staff to keep the cabinet in a closet out of the way until needed.
When word got out to the Naturalists – they had found their Poster Storage Cabinet!
It’s tough to keep a good thing secret. When the naturalists found out about the available storage for large documents in the Ulrich Minifile they knew that this could be the poster storage cabinet they have been looking for.
In detail, in the video below, Katie Finch, naturalist and education coordinator explains how this cabinet aids them in their mission:
Another point is that the Audubon can store a variety of document size in this cabinet. In the video Katie can easily find the poster she needs among a variety of different sized posters and signs.
Green in Manufacturing and Green in use
During the year, the Audubon Center offers a wide variety of events for people of all ages. Moreover, each of these events requires signs for everything from event parking to signs for each of the activities:
Before we had no central location to store the signs. In addition poor storage conditions caused damage to the signs. In brief, we needed to remake the signs for each event.
“Of course, the Minifile provides a central location for storage. Not to mention the folders organize the signs by event. Consequently, it takes only seconds to retrieve completed signs for each event. While the cabinet keeps the signs and posters in as good or better shape than when stored.” Says Jeff Tome, Senior Naturalist,
“In addition, the cabinet is so small and mobile; we can keep it tucked away in a storage closet when not in use.
Because the Ulrich Minifile has been a great organizational tool, it allows us to focus more time on our mission to connect people to the environment.”
They are great places to explore nature with your family and friends.
