Pallet racking museum storage planks for storing crated art & large artifacts

storing crated art and large artifactsThe engineering, project management and manufacturing expertise of a team of people, who specialize in crafting storage was put to the test, when pairing industrial strength with an air of sophistication to create pallet racking museum storage planks for storing crated art and large artifacts. Although fashioned for the purpose of providing two separate museums with appropriate accommodation for storing items of considerable weight, each system varies slightly in design to comply with specific storage requirements and needs. Both feature a powder-coat paint finish, which adds a degree of attractiveness while also providing ease-of-recognition when it comes to things that threaten to devalue the integrity and authenticity of delicate pieces.

Attractive-looking pallet racking museum storage planks

The first application with pallet racking museum storage planks was meant to be beautiful to look at. It also had to have the capacity for storing crated art that was large in size. Units were mounted to high density mobile systems so as to conserve space. Researchers and staff were provided with the ability to open aisles at the point of need, while also moving thousands of pounds with very little effort by way of its mechanical assist turn handles.

The task at hand with the second application of pallet racking museum storage planks required the same team of experts to work out a way to mount a pair of wide-span racks back-to-back, so as to create open areas on each shelf that ended up to be 10.5′ wide and 6′ deep. Every single rack was required to accommodate 3500 pounds per shelf. The appearance of the pallet racking museum storage planks used in this case, though, was driven by the fire codes. Perforated planks manufactured of 12-gauge steel were required, rather than the 16-gauge steel solid ones from the first installation.
