Museum Storage Solutions
We are here to make sure that your precious objects stay safe and sound, and we’re ready to join forces with you in this mission! We understand the unique challenges institutions face when it comes to managing risk, engaging with the community, making the most of their space and getting maximum value for their budget. We’re here to help you navigate these waters so you can be successful on all fronts.
DIRECT PHYSICAL FORCES
THE RISK: Whether it’s a sudden blow or prolonged strain, objects can’t resist their ultimate reshaping.
Protect your precious belongings from earthquakes with a clever solution – earthquake bars that keep jars and objects on shelves securely in place. Enhanced stability and reliability is guaranteed with our anti-tip rail systems, designed specifically for compact shelving in seismically active areas.
THE RISK: Don’t let pesky pests and fuzzy critters make a meal out of your organic collections, or let moldy mayhem take over – no need for your prized possessions to be consumed and stained!
Perforated shelving ensures air can easily circulate.
Sealed cabinets with easy-to-clean surfaces will keep pesky critters away and make inspections a cinch.
Brightly colored equipment helps us spot any uninvited guests right away!
THE RISK: When the thermostat soars, it can quickly trigger a chemical breakdown of materials prone to wear and tear.
For maximum efficiency and minimal cost, large institutions may want to consider utilizing cold rooms or walk-in freezers with built-in compactor systems. Medium-sized collections should take advantage of shelving or museum cabinets in walk-in coolers. And for those on a tighter budget, refrigerators and freezers are the way to go!
Spacesaver Storage Solutions is thrilled to provide museums with innovative ways to connect with their visitors! We offer custom storage solutions and collaborate with architects, designers, and our own project teams to build systems that wow and keep collections safe. Let’s help you create a stunning exhibit that will engage your guests like never before.

Keeping artifacts safe from damage, dust, and deterioration is simple with Spacesaver’s museum storage cabinets. Museum cabinets include locking glass doors, drawer systems, and additional custom features to create optimal museum storage solutions for your facility now and in the future. Approved for museum and archival institutions, they’re a classic solution for preserving your collections. This is a possible answer to your museum storage issues.
High-Density Mobile Storage
For larger archival storage needs, high-density mobile storage can help you ensure your artifacts’ security while increasing the capacity of your storage rooms. High-density systems can accommodate cabinets, drawers, art racks, textile storage, and more, and allow you to expand your storage as you expand your collections.
Installed as ceiling-mounted systems or floor-mounted systems used in combination with high-density mobile carriages, Spacesaver art racks allow for infinite configurations of 2D artwork with optimal protection and security. Artwork can be hung on both sides of each panel, essentially using only half the space that conventional art racks need.
When your collections outgrow your museum storage space, X-Tend High Bay systems can help you take advantage of every inch of an offsite storage facility. By allowing for floor to ceiling storage of archival collections on static or mobile shelving, you can accommodate current needs while preparing for future growth.
