Most museum depositories have to make the most of the available space. After all, museum collections are always growing. However, it is not always possible to expand the depository. So when a depository is almost full, the solution often involves using the depository space more efficiently.
The advantages of mobile depository systems
The installation of mobile depository cabinets almost always creates a huge amount of extra space. After all, you always need walking space between static cabinets. But these walking spaces can be used for storage when you opt for a mobile system. In practice, the use of mobile depository cabinets usually enables you to realise double the storage space.
Note that if your depository ceiling is high enough, you may be able to build an extra layer of cabinets on top of the first layer. Combine this with the installation of mobile cabinets and your storage space is suddenly four times larger!
Mobile depository cabinets
With mobile depository cabinets, you create more storage space in your museum depository. Because the cabinets are rolled against each other, you can be assured that your collection is being stored safely. The objects are protected against dust and bright light.
Mobile depository shelving systems
If your depository space is kept dust-free and has the right climatological conditions, you can also use mobile (open) depository shelving systems. This is particularly attractive when you have extra height available for higher shelving systems. Because you can then more than double your depository’s storage space.
