Preventing Water Damage from Sprinklers in Museum Storage
A museum's collections are extremely valuable and irreplaceable. Curators want to do everything they can to protect these collections from damage, but difficulties arise from lack of funding and lack of space. Museum art aisle gutters on mobile compact shelves prevent water damage while also safely storing collections in dramatically less floor space than traditional storage systems.

Aisle Gutters in Compact Mobile Shelves
Any area with automatic sprinklers needs to have additional protection for stored items in the event that the sprinklers are activated. And sometimes, automatic sprinklers are triggered when there is no danger of a fire—and then you have a water-damaged collection that might be completely ruined because of a mishap. But the solution is simple.
If you already have a compact shelving system, we can easily add aisle gutters to it. The gutters are custom designed to ensure a snug fit onto your compact shelves. A cap and guttering system protect the contents of your storage. If sprinklers are activated, the water lands on the U-shaped cap, then flows down to the gutters where it drains away from the mobile system. Your storage is completely protected even in an emergency.
If you don't use mobile compact shelves with aisle gutters for your museum art storage, consider installing a system that will save space, prevent water damage, protect art from other factors such as dust, light damage, insects, and tampering, and organize your art in one convenient area. With the mobile compact shelves, you can expect to save up to 50% of your space, or double your storage in the same amount of space as traditional storage.
