Weight Loads

Your building’s weight load is an important element when designing a storage project. Confirm with a structural engineer that the building floor is capable of supporting of a fully loaded system that consist of the estimated Aurora Storage System and media weight.

We can help you by providing equipment and media weight estimates. We can also help with providing alternate equipment configurations and floor load reinforcement solutions if needed.


Please note that the estimated weight for letter and legal filing are based on an average of the ranges published by BIFMA* (Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association). Both filing estimates from BIFMA and other media estimates provide here by Aurora can vary based on the specific type of materials stored. We provide these estimates only as a guide. *Vertical Files–TestsANSI/BIFMA X5.3-1997
