Universal Shelving – 1 Bay Double Sided Mobile – 1200mm High


From: $980.00

Our Universal Range of Bookcases is a combination of Laminex carcass with steel shelves, providing the look of a Laminex bookcase with the flexibility of a clever shelf system that allows 1 Shelf to be used 3 different ways without the need for additional brackets.

By simply positioning the shelf support pins in different configurations the shelf can be used as a 45 Degree Display Shelf, Flat Shelf or Uptilt Shelf anywhere throughout the unit. Your setup options are limitless without the need for additional brackets.

The top of the unit has a half shelf. This half-shelf is perfect for displaying signage or can be used for additional book display.

The price for the unit includes:

  • 1 x 1 Bay Double Sided Bookcase Carcass – 1200mm high
  • 4 x Adjustable Steel Shelves
  • 2 x Heavy Duty Lockable Castors
  • 2 x Heavy Duty Swivel Castors


The double-sided units are supplied with 2 lockable x castors and swivel castors – the castors make these easy to move around your library when needed.

The 1200mm high unit meets WA Dept of Education Library Shelving Recommendations for Primary School libraries.

  • Using 2 x steel shelves and the base of the bookcase as a shelf (3 shelves in total) the smallest shelf clearance will be: 310mm H (will fit most* fiction, non-fiction & picture books collections)
  • Using 3 x steel shelves and the base of the bookcase as a shelf (4 shelves in total) the smallest shelf clearance will be: 225mm H (this shelf clearance would only suit very small series / fiction novels)
  • Using 3 x steel shelves (3 shelves in total) the smallest shelf clearance will be: 275mm H (will fit most* fiction collections)
  • Using 4 x steel shelves (4 shelves in total) Not recommended
  • Using the shelf as a display shelf will take up 200mm of shelf clearance so you will get more shelf clearance height for your other shelves
  • Using the shelf as an uptilt shelf will require an additional 50mm so will reduce your overall shelf clearance height by 50mm for the shelf above.

* please note that this is a guide only, based on average book collections, you will need to assess your own collection to confirm if the shelf clearances are appropriate for your library.
