Darwin Chambers' Archival Storage Features | Columbus, OH Archival Storage We design and manufacture walk-in rooms and environmental chambers for a variety of different fields, from insect rearing to pharmaceutical storage, and all of our units are made uniquely for a customer's requirements. When it comes to archival storage of invaluable media and books, Darwin Chambers will work with you to find the perfect configurations to preserve them. Our archival storage chambers and rooms are ideal for: Rare books and other paper documents: Books are sensitive to temperature and humidity changes, and should remain at consistent temperatures within the appropriate range. Sunlight, dust, insects, and other natural elements can all harm 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 maintained at consistent temperatures and away from outside impurities. While paper and plastic solutions exist that may protect photographs from insects and sunlight, an archival storage chamber is the only way to guarantee that they will not be damaged. Paintings: Both wood and canvas paintings crack or warp when subjected to temperature or humidity fluctuations. Light and dust can also affect the paint. Films and microfiche: Films are prone to a kind of decay referred to as "vinegar syndrome" if preserved inadequately. The Image Permanence Institute advises storing specific kind of film at freezing or near-freezing temperatures, which which makes Darwin Chambers's versatile line of archival storage units the perfect fit for your film storing needs. Generally, books, paper, and paintings are stored at 10°C (50°F), 30% RH, while film, photographs, and microfilm are kept at 1.7°C (35°F), 35% RH.
