DURECON WOOD & STEEL LIBRARY SHELVING Storage solutions for every learning environment

I

ts collection of books, periodicals, and other reference materials is the heart of every library environment... and since 1975, thousands of libraries and learning institutions across North America have chosen Durecon Wood and Steel Shelving solutions to display and protect their greatest assets. It’s easy to understand why.

Durecon shelving represents the optimum in Durability and Economy, while sacrificing none of the style or functionality that both heritage and state-of-the-art libraries demand.

Our Starter-and-Adder design means that every Durecon component can easily be built upon to accommodate a library’s changing needs. If space is at a premium, a wide range of options – including continuous or sloping laminate counters, and finished backs in cork or slotwall – make Durecon shelving a champion in multifunctionality. Most importantly, every Durecon piece reflects the quality that Palmieri Furniture Ltd. is renowned for. It begins with selecting materials that will deliver the finest in both aesthetics and dimensional stability. We use All-Hardwood Veneer Core, which provides matchless dimensional stability. (See the AWI chart on the inside back cover). Durecon’s premium veneer core is faced with grade “A” hardwood veneer that is both selected and laid-up by hand to ensure a consistent, quality facade. Premium stains and lacquers provide an unsurpassed finish that will withstand the test of traffic and time. Durability, economy, style, functionality, quality. All demanded by North America’s best libraries… all delivered by Durecon Wood & Steel Shelving solutions.
