Archives, Libraries and Museums

Space, aesthetics and organisation are important when planning the storage for archives, libraries and museums. Items must be easily accessible and any system installed should be adaptable to future requirements. Dexion storage systems are ideally suited to this as they are versatile, modular and robust, providing long-lasting solutions. A range of accessories (some specifically designed for use in libraries, museums and archives) can be used to tailor any storage system supplied to your precise needs.


Archive repositories often require storage systems that maximise space in terms of storage and workflow. Easy to use when operated either manually or electronically, Dexion mobile archive shelving can double the storage capacity of an archive facility. A single floating aisle is used within the system to provide quick and easy access to documents stored, eliminating the need for multiple aisles and allowing more space to be used for shelf storage. A more secure system can be made by limiting access to some bays by locking mobile units together, ensuring that documents with restricted access are kept safe.


Dexion shelving systems can be used in libraries for both front-of-house public access operations and back-of-house centralised storage archives. With an aesthetically pleasing design and a range of finish options, Dexion shelving can be customised to match the image of your library. Optional perforations in the system can offer ventilation and assist in the preservation of books and documents. Flexible and versatile, the system will neatly fit into nearly any layout required, even around pillars, ventilation shafts and other tricky objects. Mobile options are available for when space is limited, as is often the case in libraries as new books are acquired.


From bulky and unwieldy items such as paintings and sculptures to smaller items such as jewellery and medals, museum storage can cover a huge and diverse collection of objects and materials. With a huge number of racking systems and a full range of shelving systems for any application, as well as comprehensive integrated accessories specifically designed for use in museums, Dexion products can provide you with a comprehensive solution to your museum storage needs. Specialised vertical pull-out picture racking makes optimal use of space, can be adjusted to suit the size of the picture or painting, and protects the paintings stored. Both Longspan and the Hi280 shelving systems can be adapted to suit the size of objects stored and be made mobile if required. Specialised pull out drawers that protect against dust and light can be integrated into the HI280 system if artefacts or items require extra protection or need to be stored lying flat. No matter what your collection is comprised of, Dexion systems can be adapted to store it safely, efficiently and securely.
