Darwin Chambers' Archival Storage Features | Oakland, CA Archival Storage We work for many different industries, from insect rearing to pharmaceutical storage, and all of our units are made specifically for a customer's requirements. With regards to archival storage of priceless media and artifacts, Darwin Chambers will work with you to find the perfect features to preserve them. Our archival storage chambers and rooms are perfect for: Rare books and other paper documents: Books react strongly to temperature and humidity changes, and should be maintained at consistent temperatures within the appropriate range. Outside contaminants such as dust, sunlight, or insects can damage old books. Humidity of over 35%RH can lead to 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 away from outside pollutants. While paper and plastic solutions exist that may protect photographs from insects and sunlight, both have their disadvantages. Paintings: Both wood and canvas paintings crack or warp when subjected to temperature or humidity variations. Light and dust can also damage the paint. Films and microfiche: Films are prone to a sort of decay called "vinegar syndrome" if preserved inadequately. The Image Permanence Institute endorses storing specific types of film at freezing or near-freezing temperatures, which Darwin Chambers's versatile line of archival storage units is more than capable of. The standard is to keep books, paper, and paintings at 10°C (50°F), 30% RH, while film, photographs, and microfilm are kept at 1.7°C (35°F), 35% RH.
