Conserving the past, reducing your footprint


Conserving the Past, Protecting the Future

The great thing about our amazing planet is its rich diversity. With different parts of the globe having different cultures, each one distinctive and unique in its own right. Seeing how different cultures live, and lived, in the past, present, and even the future, is not only fascinating, it helps us to progress as a race. One issue that is plaguing museums all over the country, however, is a distinct lack of space. As storage space becomes scarce, that, coupled with rising energy costs means that museums need to utilize every single square metre as efficient as possible. This is where Bruynzeel archive cabinets and archive shelving systems enter the picture. With Bruynzeel archival storage cabinets and archive shelves, you can potentially reduce your inventory storage space by as much as 75%. The less space used on storage the more room you have for your collections and the lower your energy usage will be. Not only is this financially beneficial to you, it’s also environmentally friendly and a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.
