With regards 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: Old books and other paper documents: Books are sensitive to temperature and humidity changes, and should be maintained at steady temperatures. Sunlight, dust, insects, and other natural elements can all damage old books. Humidity of over 35%RH can result in mold growth on paper. Archival storage with Darwin Chambers will ensure your books remain in great condition. Photographs: Photographs must also be kept at consistent temperatures and will deteriorate if introduced to outside contaminants. While there are paper and plastic cases that may protect photographs from mold and sunlight, there are downsides to both. Paintings: Both wood and canvas paintings split or misshape in response to temperature or humidity variations. Light and dust can also damage the paint. Films and microfiche: Films are prone to a type of decay called "vinegar syndrome" if stored inadequately. The Image Permanence Institute suggests storing certain kind of film at freezing or near-freezing temperatures, which which makes Darwin Chambers's easily adapted line of archival storage units the ideal 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.
