Spacesaver’s steel shelving incorporates coatings and components that meet strict archive storage protection standards. Our powered compact mobile storage systems provide any degree of archival protection needed including:

  • Programmable opening and closing to facilitate air circulation, or to deliver maximum and equal flow of fire-suppression agents
  • Mobile carriages that ensure smooth acceleration and deceleration to minimize vibration
  • Non-contact sensors to automatically control the distance between aisles to protect stored materials
  • Perforated shelving, uprights, and end-panels that allow for maximum airflow or facilitate the flow of water in the event of a fire
  • Links to facility security systems to limit damage in a fire or flood
  • Silicon gaskets to seal closed aisles
  • Low-level, automatically controlled overhead lighting

For archives that don’t require the space-saving benefits of a mobile storage unit, consider Spacesaver static shelving systems – including wide-span shelving – or our stand-alone museum-grade custom cabinets with drawers (including flat-file drawers), and trays.
