Rolling artwork panels provide compact museum storage
15 Sep 2015
Art racks are the preferred option for storing artwork that must be maintained in a vertical (hanging) position, but stationary racks can be difficult to access and take up a large amount of space. Spacesaver rolling artwork panels, also called rolling art racks, provide versatile and secure ways to store and display your art collections, no matter your storage space constraints.
We provide two options for compactly storing and accessing artwork on racks: in-floor racks or ceiling-mounted racks. In our floor-mounted high-density art rack systems, racks are mounted on carriages that move on steel rails. By moving the racks from side to side, staff can easily access artworks when required while eliminating the wasted space between aisles. Spacesaver’s ceiling-mounted option, the Hang Glider Pro®, features ceiling channels that are arranged close together for maximum storage density, with the artwork panels being suspended by a roller mechanism that provides easy access.
With either option, stored materials fit into a much smaller footprint, but safe and convenient access is still assured. These solutions have been used in areas open to public view as well as in storage areas. Learn more about our museum storage products and services here, or download our free lookbook below.
