Large format plans are a challenge to store safely. If your business doesn’t have the appropriate shelving or secure cabinets, then you may end up with plans that are rolled up and stored on shelving that’s inappropriate. These plans may also end up being folded into squares or placed into archive boxes. Improper storage of large format plans leads to their degradation.

preserves important
file information

Over time, the plans exposed to light will become brittle, or become damaged due to constant handling. Even the act of retrieving the plans and unfolding or unrolling them for use will eventually wear them out. 

Important information such as plan title, plan numbers, revision information, scale, and other details may be lost if the sections they’re printed on get damaged or torn.

easier file retrieval

Locating a specific plan in a roll of 50 or more can take time. Once you find the plan, it needs to be back-rolled and flattened, or held by two people to stop it from rolling up again while viewing the information on the plan.

Scanned plans can be given meaningful file names that make it easier for you to locate them in digital form. We can also extract information such as the plan number, plan title, plan type, revision number and date, and use them to create a searchable plan register or database.

If the plans are especially fragile, they are placed into protective mylar sleeves so that they won’t get damaged during the scanning process.
