Museum cabinet adapted with wheels creates carts with mobile flexibility

Collection storage organizes artifacts

museum cabinet wheels cartsThe historic institution that uses the collection storage collects, preserves, and interprets their state’s original settlement site and first state capital. It also serves as home to the longest-running field school in historical archaeology in the country. The solution made up one of many that experts would help design after receiving a request from the museum’s curator.

With an opportunity to design and construct a new building on the horizon, the curator put in a call to experts who could provide storage solutions. While one needed to store archival records, the other would accommodate the ever-growing archaeological collection. Users access the study collection on a daily basis from full-height specialized cabinets that install on powered compactors designed to save space.

Not one counter-high museum cabinet, but many have wheels that roll so the carts can provide safe transportability between classrooms and collection storage areas. Users can even remove the doors to create collection storage which provides convenient access to space that keeps fragile items organized while moving. The powder-coated steel constructed systems have a clean and durable finish that helps protect and preserve artifacts.
