When the planning process began for an art and archive storage project, the current collection was being stored in the basement of an office tower. To prevent any damage and to create easier access to the art and archive collection, relocation to a lower-risk environment and the development of more appropriate storage solutions were necessary.
An Eclipse Powered System® was installed to house the archive collection. The powered high-density mobile storage system was outfitted with a locking Audit Trail Touchpad that provided additional security. The mobile system also includes a water diversion kit with rubber gaskets that cover the front panel gap between carriages. This is to prevent any water from leaking into the mobile system while it’s in a closed position.
Spacesaver Art Racks were installed to accommodated art work that ranged from 12” x 12” to 6’ x 8’ and provided much needed visibility, which helps staff when selecting pieces.
The selected Spacesaver storage systems have not only helped with organization of the art and archives for this facility, but have helped keep this collection safe from damage. The new storage systems have also uncovered up to 60% of wasted floor space!
