Cost-saving museum geology full-height preservation cabinet
As it stands today, metal-made museum geology full-height preservation cabinet units are a space-saving and safe choice for storing heavy sample specimens. With one unit offering up to 18.19 cubic feet of storage capacity, collections that include a considerable number of species are allowed to be conveniently located into a single space for greater cost savings than that achieved through the use of several sturdy boxes.
Nearly two decades ago, something as simple as a sturdy box and cabinets were equally accepted as appropriate storage options for many forms of geological sample specimens, including everything from vertebrate and non-vertebrate fossils to mineral and rock samples. However, with a limited batch of some 3,600 mineral species posing a potential threat to handlers' health and safety, one agency went so far as to make it their policy that collections be kept in cabinets made of metal some years later. It goes on to contend that other materials used in the construction of storage cabinets and display cases - including adhesives, various coatings, sealants and wood - are known for giving off acetic and other carboxylic acids, which have the capacity to react with varying minerals.
