As we all know, prevention is better than cure, or rather preservation is better than conservation, which is why we have introduced a range of equipment to assist with collection care storage and management. From hygrometers and data loggers to storage boxes, discover the range below.
Archival Storage Boxes for Preservation
Air Tight Storage Boxes
Available in three different size capacities (29L / 44L / 70L) as standard and more on request, these storage boxes are made from tough, food grade polypropylene with air-tight polyurethane seal and reinforced lid for easy stacking. These boxes are ideal for the safe storage of a range of materials ranging from paper to objects.
These boxes are supplied with 3 x 25g silica gel bags and a humidity indicator strip.
Hygrometers for Preservation
Rotronic Sword Hygrometer GTS Set
The GTS Hand Held Sword Hygrometer is an easy-to-use tool to measure the variable conditions between layers of paper, textiles and other difficult to monitor materials. With a fixed probe and a clear, uncluttered display for quick and accurate checking of stored items and exhibits, this unit is available as both a stand alone item and as a set.
The GTS Set consists of a GTS sword hygrometer, a pack of 50 % rh humidity standards for periodic checking of sensor performance, a calibration device and a protective storage/carrying case.
