  • Saving Collections, Saving Space
    Learn how this Ivy League institution utilized our Preservation Cabinets on High-Density Mobile Storage to create a space that is functional, beautiful, and provides a hands-on learning environment for tomorrow’s curators.
  • Quality Metal Cabinets
    Our 920 Series: Preservation Cabinet was sent to a federal agency for a burn workshop in the fall of 2018. Although the side of the cabinet reached approximately 900 degrees Celsius (1650 degrees Fahrenheit), there was no water within the cabinet from the sprinkler discharge and items in plastic bags inside the cabinet were unaffected by smoke and soot.
