Preservation Cabinet

How can you plan for the future when you don’t know what it will hold? It’s an age-old question that applies to many situations in life, including the storage of museum collections.

Planning for this uncertainty was front and center when Spacesaver designed the 920 Series: Preservation Cabinet. This versatile museum storage cabinet is ideal for the long-term preservation of art collections, geological specimens, natural history collections, anthropology collections, and any other type of museum collection.

Cabinet Configurations

Spacesaver’s 920 Series: Preservation Cabinet ranges from counter-height to full-height with several options in between. Counter-height cabinets can double as a work surface, and their modular design allows them to be safely and securely stacked at a later date. Full-height cabinets, on the other hand, are more cost-effective, with a lower cost per cubic foot of storage capacity.

Standard Dimensions
  • Width 30”, 36”, 42”, 48”, 60”
  • Depth 18”, 24”, 30”, 36”
  • Height 42”, 60”, 72”, 84”, 96”
