Magista specialises in storage solutions for museums. The storage of paintings is a ‘hot item’ for museums. After all, the numbers of paintings in storage are increasing all the time and many museum depositories are bursting at the seams. So there is a real need for new ways of storing paintings efficiently and safely. Magista is using its knowledge and experience to help museums solve their storage problems. Amongst other things, with extremely practical painting frames.
Painting frames with a large capacity
Magista’s painting frames are a handy way of storing the paintings in your collection. The paintings are suspended from the frames, almost completely ruling out the chance of damage. The racks are available in various sizes, including heights of over 2 metres (and every possible width, in principle).
To give you an example of the storage capacity: a painting frame with 20 frames of 2×3 metres provides a ‘hanging surface’ of 120 m2. Yet, this frame only takes up around 10 m2 of floor area. You can store around 100 paintings of 1×1 metres in this frame.
A well thought-out solution
A painting frame is mounted in a self-supporting structure that is independent of the building in which it is installed. So Magista painting frames can be installed almost everywhere. No profiles need to be installed in the floor or ceiling. So the installation of the painting frame has a minimal impact on your building. Moreover, there are no rails or profiles that can cause problems when transporting your paintings on trolleys.
Needless to say, the painting frames can be professionally finished according to your specifications. In every possible RAL colour. For the storage of heavier paintings, the structure of the painting frame can be reinforced or adapted, if necessary.

Hallmark – Products
All of Magista’s cabinets, shelving systems and all other products comply with various hallmarks in the Netherlands and Germany. Those hallmarks officially confirm the quality, safety and sustainability of the Magista products. To obtain these hallmarks, the products must pass a number of tests. During these tests, which are implemented by independent inspection bodies, it is checked whether the products comply with the applicable requirements related to bearing capacity, safety, finishing and many other aspects. Magista itself also continuously tests its own products. For example, we subject all our storage systems for museums and depositories to the so-called ODDY-test.
