Museum Storage

Fine Arts Storage

Art collection storage from Spacesaver can help maximize storage capacity in your collections storage. Solutions range from high-density mobile and pullout vertical art racks, to Viking museum cabinets with doors and draws for organizing flat artwork.

  • Viking's Museum-grade cabinets by Spacesaver with glass doors; can provide secure storage for three-dimensional artwork like pottery, jewelry and sculpture.
  • Drawers with full-extension, museum grade glides or pullout specimen trays for 3D objects, Quilts, or flat textile storage.

Spacesaver’s pullout, top-mounted art rack system is a ceiling-suspended pullout storage panel system. Hang Glider Pro art racks provide easy viewing, loading and unloading of artwork by pulling the racks into a central aisle. Movement does not create vibration.

Spacesaver’s high-density mobile art racks feature carriages on floor-mounted. By moving rows of storage from side to side, the system is able to eliminate idle aisles and “compress” (or compact) the stored materials into a much smaller footprint when compared with any stationary system – yet provide 100 percent access whenever needed.  Our floor-mounted art-rack storage systems are available in Manual Operation, Mechanical Assist Operation, or Electric Operation.  

  • Systems can be installed on existing floors or planned into new construction.
  • Wheel sections can be nested for maximum density.
  • Roller guide-bearing wheel assemblies provide for superior racking.
  • All wheel sections come equipped with in-rail anti-tip
