Darwin Chambers' Archival Storage Features | Portland, OR 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 specifically for a client's needs. With regards to archival storage of invaluable media and artifacts, Darwin Chambers will work with you to find the perfect configurations to preserve them. Our archival storage chambers and rooms are perfectly suited for: Rare books and other paper documents: Books reactive to temperature and humidity changes, and should be maintained 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 remain in their present state. Photographs: Photographs must also remain at stable temperatures and will deteriorate if introduced to outside impurities. While there are paper and plastic cases that may protect photographs from dust and sunlight, both have their disadvantages. Paintings: Both panel paintings and canvas paintings split or bend when subjected to temperature or humidity shifts. 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 preserved improperly. The Image Permanence Institute advises storing specific kind of film at freezing or near-freezing temperatures, which Darwin Chambers's easily adapted line of archival storage units is more than capable of. Usually, books, paper, and paintings are stored 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 Portland, OR can be calibrated to temperature control anywhere from 0°C to 21°C (32°F to 70°F)with an accuracy within ±0.2ºC and humidity control to within ±1%. Humidification is uncommon for storing documents and films, but we can add that humidification systems for unusual archival storage implementations.
