There were several challenges facing the United States Navy - Naval Undersea Museum, according to Jennifer Heinzelman, the Collections Manager/Registrar. Museum quality storage products were needed in order to preserve and protect the many artifacts stored in the facility, but many of the storage spaces were also filled to capacity. They were essentially running out of space.
They decided to house the collection in a Spacesaver high-density mobile storage system to maximize capacity.
The museum worked with a local Authorized Spacesaver Dealer to design a mechanical assist high-density storage system for the archives that would accommodate films and books. A second system was planned and equipped to store everything from rare diving equipment to sonic buoy’s. Spacesaver mobile art racks were also installed to house various 2D hanging art. The local distributor also helped the museum address environmental and possible disaster control scenarios like seismic or fire damage and integrate solutions into the museum storage solutions.
