Darwin Chambers' Archival Storage Features | Pittsburgh, PA Archival Storage We work for a variety of different types of companies, from insect rearing to pharmaceutical storage, and all of our units are made uniquely for a client's requirements. With regards to archival storage of priceless media and artifacts, Darwin Chambers will work with you to find the perfect settings to preserve them. Our archival storage chambers and rooms are perfect for: Old books and other paper documents: Books reactive to temperature and humidity changes, and should be maintained at consistent temperatures within the appropriate range. Outside impurities such as dust, sunlight, or insects can damage old books. Humidity of over 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 stable temperatures and will deteriorate if exposed to outside pollutants. While there are paper and plastic cases that may protect photographs from dust and sunlight, both have their disadvantages. Paintings: Both wood and canvas paintings split or misshape when subjected to temperature or humidity changes. Light and dust can also damage paint at the molecular level, which causes visible changes. Films and microfiche: Films are susceptible to a type of decay known as "vinegar syndrome" if preserved improperly. The Image Permanence Institute recommends storing certain sorts of film at freezing or near-freezing temperatures, which Darwin Chambers's easily adapted line of archival storage units is more than capable of. The standard is to preserve 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. However, our archival storage in Pittsburgh, PA can be customized to temperature control between 0°C to 21°C (32°F to 70°F). Our archival storage units have precise temperature control within ±0.2ºC and humidity control to within ±1%. Humidification is uncommon for storing media, but we can tack on that humidification systems for atypical archival storage implementations. Beyond keeping a consistent temperature and keeping the objects free of mold, light, or water damage, our archival storage rooms in Pittsburgh, PA will keep your items safe from fires, pollutants, or other man-made risks. Each one our archival storage rooms and chambers abide by NFPA codes and standards, GSA regulations, and NARA Directive 1571.
