One will fall eventually and you'll come in with a floor full of muffed-up vinyl. We have our larger rolls on a smaller shelf near the floor, and inevitably once a month or so you come in and a bunch are on the floor.
If these are all smaller rolls, I would definitely recommend the wall racks that your suppliers sell. They're a bit expensive, but I've never had trouble out of them.
Putting them where you can read in the core helps you identify the correct color/material faster also.
I have the room for floor racks so I bought 3 of 'em to manage my inventory. One side is full of premium 2mil. cast and the other side is for calendreds. As the rack's already full, I'm slowly building a fence all-around'em with new colors coming in I'll have to drop another +$300 for a new one soon:Oops:
We have our 15", 24" and 30" on dowels or in boxes along one wall in our computer room. We have our top row of dowels loaded with 54 media not used very often. Our digital media we have standing up on those plastic stands along another wall. We're in the process of figuring out how to make it more convenient. We wouldn't normally be doing this, but the hurricane came down through the roof and almost made a mess. We got everything to high ground in time, but now where to re-locate it is on a back burner, since we have some really big jobs going on.
I'd like to have them on dowels, also, but I really can't afford the room that way.
Jeremy wants to put the vinyl in another room altogether and I think that would cause too many mistakes and handling problems.
