Product Spotlight – Bespoke Conservation Equipment

Over the last 7 decades, Willard has created a vast range of equipment and tools that are now used by art conservators all around the world. Over time we’ve had customers coming to us, commissioning products to meet their specific project requirements. We love working with talented conservators to create products that are perfectly suited to their work. Below are a few examples of the bespoke conservation equipment we have created.


Adjustable Height Access Chair

Adjustable Height Access Chair

First developed as part of a bespoke project, this adjustable height access chair was developed specifically to meet the needs of conservators needing better access to large paintings held vertically.


The Chair can easily be positioned in front of the Painting and the operator can securely position themselves on the chair and place all necessary tools on the convenient shelves fitted each side. With a high mass and a low centre of gravity this adjustable height access chair offers maximum stability and minimum vibration.


This equipment can be tailored to meet individual requirements allowing art conservators ease of access to large paintings.

Sub-illuminated Suction Table

Our popular sub-illuminated suction table provides an excellent illuminated work surface.


The work surface is constructed from an open cell polyethylene sheet, which is flush mounted onto a sleek, but very rigid aluminium sub frame into which is installed a full size, fully dimmable LED lighting system, providing high quality light, which illuminates through to the work surface.


The table is available in sizes suited to your requirements up to 1200mm x 1800mm and can be supplied mounted on a typical table frame with optional accessories.
