Darwin Chambers' Archival Storage Features | Philadelphia, PA Archival Storage We design and manufacture walk-in rooms and environmental chambers for numerous different fields, from insect rearing to pharmaceutical storage, and all of our units are made exactly for a customer's requirements. When it comes to archival storage of invaluable media and documents, Darwin Chambers will work with you to find the perfect settings to preserve them. Our archival storage chambers and rooms are perfect for: Rare books and other paper documents: Books are sensitive to temperature and humidity changes, and should be maintained at stable temperatures. Sunlight, dust, insects, and other natural elements can all harm old books. Humidity of over 35%RH can cause mold growth on paper. Archival storage with Darwin Chambers will ensure your books remain in their present state. 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 mold 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 misshape in reaction 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 susceptible to a sort of decay known as "vinegar syndrome" if preserved inadequately. The Image Permanence Institute advises storing certain types of film at freezing or near-freezing temperatures, which Darwin Chambers's flexible line of archival storage units is more than capable of. Typically, 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 Philadelphia, PA are capable of remarkable temperature control between 0°C to 21°C (32°F to 70°F)with a precision within ±0.2ºC and humidity control to within ±1%.
