Benefits of Fossil Storage Cabinets

fossil storage museumsInterior Flexibility – Our tray cabinets are flexible to store drawers or shelves as collections grow. This flexibility is due to the excellent design of removable liners and interchangeable accessories that create reconfigurable interiors. Accessories include a variety of drawers, trays, shelves, and hanging rods. For example, a cabinet storing fossils can be converted to store artifacts and other items. This is a great feature that allows the cabinet to be adaptable to changing needs over time.

Exterior Strength – Southwest Solutions Group storage systems have long been known for exceptional strength and sturdiness. All our fossil storage products are manufactured in the USA of heavy-gauge steel with reinforced welded construction. 

Closed-cell gaskets and our three-point latching system help ensure protection from dust and other contaminants. The cabinet’s non-off-gassing powder-coat paint finish provides durability and a clean appearance. Our cabinets have leveling feet to adjust for uneven floors. They come standard with keyed locks to help keep your contents secure. Visit our online store to see our museum storage products.

In the fall of 2018, we sent a fossil storage cabinet to a federal agency for a burn workshop. Although the side of the cabinet reached approximately 900 degrees Celsius (1650 degrees Fahrenheit), items in plastic bags inside the cabinet were unaffected by smoke and soot. No water from sprinkler discharge penetrated the cabinet. This is because our fossil storage cabinet has a unique heat-resistant material that protects its contents from high temperatures and water damage. As a result, this cabinet is an ideal solution for storing fossils and other sensitive collections that need protection from harm.

Fossil Displays – Our glass top cabinets are excellent for exhibiting a display of fossils. We use clear-tempered low-lead glass to cover the viewing area. These cabinets protect fossil collections from dust particles and humidity that can damage fossils over time.
