Our archival storage chambers and rooms are ideal for: Old books and other paper documents: Books easily damaged due to temperature and humidity changes, and should stay at consistent temperatures within the correct range. Sunlight, dust, insects, and other natural elements can all degrade old books. Humidity of more than 35%RH can result in mold growth on paper. Archival storage with Darwin Chambers will ensure your books will not deteriorate. Photographs: Photographs must also be maintained at steady temperatures and will deteriorate if exposed 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 panel paintings and canvas paintings split or bend when subjected to temperature or humidity fluctuations. Light and dust can also affect the paint. Films and microfiche: Films are vulnerable to a kind of decay referred to as "vinegar syndrome" if stored improperly. The Image Permanence Institute advises storing specific types of film at freezing or near-freezing temperatures, which which makes Darwin Chambers's easily adapted line of archival storage units the perfect fit for your film storing needs. The standard is to store books, paper, and paintings at 10°C (50°F), 30% RH, while film, photographs, and microfilm are preserved at 1.7°C (35°F), 35% RH.
