5 Different Uses for Garment Storage Racks

museum uniforms in garment storage racksAt home it might be acceptable to leave clothes piled up on the floor, but anywhere else, it’s a pretty bad idea. But sometimes it’s challenging to find a solution that’s both affordable and practical for your needs. That’s why we’ve just added a bunch of new garment storage racks to our existing offerings. These garment racks are ideal for a variety of applications like…

1. Theater Costumes

Everyone that’s ever worked in or participated in theater knows that the creative spirit can sometimes be messy. You also know that costumes are expensive and budgets are usually small. But the costumes are a huge part of the story you’re telling. How would you know it’s a Shakespeare play if everyone was dressed in modern clothes? Keeping all your costumes preserved and organized is essential – and easy to do with the garment racks.

2. Church Choir Robes

Just like theaters, churches typically operate on small budgets. Most of the money raised gets put back into the church itself or gets put to use through charity work. You need to make sure your church choir robes last through multiple performances and many people wearing them. Storing them hanging on racks ensures they’re safe from damage.

3. K-12 Classrooms

4. Small Museums

While the big-boys in the museum world might get all the attention, small community museums are what preserve local history. They play an important role in keeping us informed about what’s  happened in our towns over the years. Part of that history includes the clothing and dress of generations past. And since these types of garments are so sensitive, you can’t just leave them piled in a corner. The garment racks are an excellent solution since they are right-sized for your small museum.

5. Laboratory Coats

Working in a research facility or clean room, you’re going to have a lab coat. And making sure it’s there when you need to put it on saves time and helps you do your job. The garment storage racks keep your coat closer to the point of use so that you can focus on your job, not searching for a missing lab coat.

Protect the Past from the Present with Museum Cabinets

museum racks shelves storage preservation cabinets archival geologyArchival Preservation Cabinets

Whether you are a museum curator or a researcher at a university, you know that keeping delicate organic specimens intact over the long term is a balancing act. There are 6 major factors that typically lead to damage for collections that aren’t kept safely in archival storage.

  1. Light (visible and UV wavelengths)
  2. High humidity
  3. Excessive or unauthorized handling
  4. Pest infestation
  5. Improper temperature control
  6. Dust and other contaminants

Without appropriate preservation museum cabinets and artifacts storage equipment, your organization’s collection could be at risk. You don’t have a second chance to get specimen or museum storage right. Specimens and artifacts may suffer irreparable damage and be difficult or impossible to replace.

museum racks shelves storage preservation cabinets archival geologyMuseum Cabinets For Every Collection

One of the challenges of sourcing archival cabinets is the wide variety of specimens requiring storage. Each type of specimen may have different requirements. For example, keeping dermestid beetles out of your entomology cabinets is absolutely critical. Pest infestation can turn an insect collection that took years to build into piles of dust in just a couple of weeks. Other special considerations for entomology collections include being able to find the correct style of drawer for your institution’s preferred display method (Cornell, Smithsonian, California, or USNM style).

Herbarium cabinets require very careful humidity control to keep mold from destroying fragile plant tissue. Your main concern with geology cabinets is typically finding sturdy shelving or drawers that can hold up under the weight of all those rocks. You may need extra security such as museum cabinet locking mechanisms to prevent theft of high-value specimens in some collections.

Museum Collection Cabinets Offer Multiple Solutions

At StoreMoreStore, we provide museum storage solutions including specimen cabinets that help you control all of the factors that could degrade your collection. Our museum cabinets close and seal with gaskets that keep the interior environmental conditions at optimal levels for long term preservation.
