ARCHIVAL, ART, & MUSEUMS STORAGE SYSTEMS
From Archaeology to Zoology and everything in between, we have solutions to meet your specific storage needs. Since controlled environment conditions are necessary for the preservation of many of the archival, art, and museum artifacts, specialized storage solutions are required to maximize a typically confined space allotment given for the storage of such items. We offer solutions for various sized collections and required environments. All of our products meet and even exceed the Uniform Building Code (UBC) and the Library Technology Report (LTR) for quality and seismic zone requirements.
Our Montel cantilever and 4-Post shelving allow rare books, first editions, and those with fragile bindings to be safely stored and protected. These systems offer safety features, such as the four-bend edges and the closed uprights, which protect the books from potential damage while providing reinforcement and the ability to conceal electrical wiring discreetly and safely as well.
Our four types of Art Panel Storage (Floor Mounted or Suspended Pull-outs, ModulArt, & Lateral Art Storage Systems) offer a variety of configurations for different environments enabling collections of any size to be stored. Our Montel art racks have separated double-sided metallic mesh panels providing necessary ventilation, maximizing hanging surface, and ensuring the painting’s backing is not damaged since there is space between the two-sided panels. The system is delivered with specially designed safety hooks for object suspension.
When it comes to storing specimens, textiles, and artifacts large and small, we offer shelving configurations to keep these precious pieces not only safely stored, but efficiently accessible for retrieval and use. Drawers and trays can be configured with dividers, anti-dust gaskets, locks, wire mesh bottoms to allow air circulation if needed, or configured within a carefully crafted cabinet to preserve unique collections. Our specimen cabinets provide airtight, dustproof protection with sealed doors to preserve collections for years to come. Textiles, such as flags, banners, canvas, tapestries, rugs etc., can be easily stored on our rolled textile adapters to eliminate the risk of damaging these pieces that need to be stored horizontally to prevent bending of the item and therefore optimizing space. Extremely heavy or oversized pieces of collections can be accommodated on our Montel 4D shelving systems. Exceeding industry standards, the design on these long-span shelving systems, either mobile or fixed, offer wide storage spaces and permit the safe storage of oversized artifacts since they are able to sustain heavier loads and accommodate objects of different heights.
