Darwin Chambers' Archival Storage Features | Austin, TX Archival Storage We work for numerous different types of businesses, from insect rearing to pharmaceutical storage, and all of our units are made exactly for a client's needs. When it comes to archival storage of invaluable media and artifacts, Darwin Chambers will work with you to find the perfect configurations to preserve them. Our archival storage chambers and rooms are ideally suited for: Rare books and other paper documents: Books react strongly to temperature and humidity changes, and should be maintained at stable temperatures. Sunlight, dust, insects, and other natural elements can all damage old books. Humidity of more than 35%RH can cause mold growth on paper. Archival storage with Darwin Chambers will ensure your books will not deteriorate. Photographs: Photographs must also be kept at steady temperatures and will deteriorate if exposed to outside impurities. While there are paper and plastic cases that may protect photographs from mold and sunlight, both have their disadvantages. Paintings: Both panel paintings and canvas paintings crack or warp when subjected to temperature or humidity shifts. Light and dust can also damage paint at the molecular level, which causes visible changes. Films and microfiche: Films are vulnerable to a kind of decay called "vinegar syndrome" if stored improperly. The Image Permanence Institute recommends storing specific kind of film at freezing or near-freezing temperatures, which Darwin Chambers's flexible line of archival storage units is more than capable of. Generally, books, paper, and paintings are preserved at 10°C (50°F), 30% RH, while film, photographs, and microfilm are preserved at 1.7°C (35°F), 35% RH. Even so, our archival storage in Austin, TX can be customized to temperature control between 0°C to 21°C (32°F to 70°F). Our archival storage units have precise temperature control within ±0.2ºC and humidity control to within ±1%. Humidification is uncommon for storing artifacts, but we can tack on that humidification capabilities for atypical archival storage applications. Besides keeping a stable environment and keeping the objects free of mold, light, or water damage, our archival storage chambers and rooms in Austin, TX will keep your documents safe from fires, pollutants, or any other non-natural occurrences. Each one our archival storage rooms and chambers are designed in accordance with NFPA codes and standards, GSA regulations, and NARA Directive 1571. Also, we install a personnel emergency alarm in every walk-in room, with a glow-in-the-dark antimicrobial pull cord that will set off both an audible and visual alarm.
