Specialized storage solutions for priceless collections

Customized storage with an emphasis on preservation

RDT Bruynzeel Storage Systems provides products and services to help curators and collection managers house rare books, art panels, clothing and textiles, maps, drawings, photography, negatives, music sheets, wet collections, tank storage, and heavy duty storage requirements. For many, off-site storage is not an option, therefore, space continues to challenge as museums grow collections, shrink or enlarge their facilities or take on new educational endeavors.

RDT Bruynzeel Storage Systems has a unique perspective of looking at projects from a storage and space planning vantage. Our design team has worked with many museums while they are in the planning phase of designing new collections storage space. We take pride in our ability to work with the curators and registrars to study the collections and gain knowledge of what they have collected and explore various types of museum style cabinet and storage options best suited for their needs. As with other aspects of our business, RDT Bruynzeel Storage Systems partners with architects to ensure that the drawings reflect the necessary building requirements i.e. physical space for the uniquely designed storage products we recommend.

RDT Bruynzeel Storage Systems fosters a collaborative effort between the curator or manager, architect and our museum division. We provide detailed drawings and proposals that can be included in your submissions for grants, sent to donors, or put through the general fund committee to secure the necessary investment needed to implement the plan.
