Trusted by museums and galleries around the world, the Dexion Specialist cabinet is the ultimate in collections storage systems. Specially designed to protect and store valuable collections of all shapes and sizes, from priceless artwork to scientific specimens and textiles, as well as archive natural history pieces, these secure, high-density cabinets are built to protect and preserve all types of collections.
The Specialist Cabinet series is world class when it comes to quality and value, with the cabinets available in a variety of sizes that are universally adaptable. The robust steel construction and non-reactive, solvent-free durable powder coat finishes ensure long-lasting durability.
Key features of Dexion storage cabinets include heavy-duty runners; powder coat finish; silicone gasket; flush locking hardware; drawers and shelves vertically adjustable on 25mm centres; charcoal filter vent for passive air filtration; base with levellers on all four corners and fitted with adjustable feet; all glass doors with 6mm laminated safety glass; and choice of colours, including Cottonwood, Tan, Designer Grey and Black.
The Dexion Specialist Cabinet series includes a variety of combinations such as double door cabinets, double door hanging rod cabinets and single door cabinets. Depending on the model, these cabinets are ideal for artefact storage, flat textile storage, rolled textile storage, botanical and entomological specimens, maps, blueprints, large documents, or mammal, reptile and amphibian specimens among many others.
Dexion Mobile Art Racks
The Dexion Mobile Art Rack not only protects precious articles in museums and galleries, but also conserves valuable floor space. The ultimate in secure, protective, space optimising storage, the mobile art racks offer greater capacity with double-sided mesh screens that allow galleries to hang art on both sides of the rack without interference. The mesh is also flush with posts to allow flexibility in painting arrangements. The result is a limitless suite of hanging arrangements, which is essential when floor space is at a premium.
So space efficient that it can store the equivalent amount of artwork of a conventional pull-out art rack using half the floor space, the Dexion Mobile Art Rack is available in nested and non-nested carriage configurations.
Dexion Mobile Art Racks feature steel construction for durability and sturdy design, in-rail anti-tilt mechanism and roller guide bearings for superior tracking and extended lifetime; powder coat painted panels and carriages to protect art from off-gassing; hand-controlled manual system for smooth and simple operation; double-faced, woven steel mesh design to hang artwork on both sides; wall-mounted panels supplied standard with mounting brackets and rectangular mesh screen on the side; and face panels tailored to nested and non-nested carriages, and available with or without handles. Tracks can be nested for maximum density.
Ideal for storage of paintings and framed artwork, textiles and tapestries or any other precious item that benefits from being stored in a flat hanging configuration, art racks can be installed on existing floors or planned in a new construction.
