Solander Museum Cases 1212 – 14.5 x 18.5 x 2.5


Museum Cases

The Solander case from Opus – the classic museum case used the world over by curators, collectors, archivists, artists, photographers

Solander cases from Opus – setting the standard for archival protection of your prints, drawings, photographs and other works on paper.

  • They provide an acid-free environment away from dust and light for safest archival storage, yet portable to the worktable for safest access and handling
  • The spine is double-hinged to open flat, allowing unhindered access to the contents
  • The design incorporates a dust trap around the entire opening, including the top and bottom spine areas, to make this case virtually dust- and light-proof when closed
  • The cabinet-made wood-frame construction is extremely rugged, able to take years and years of heavy institutional use
  • The wood used is low-resin basswood, the safest possible material for print case construction
  • The top and bottom panels have a core of solid binders board (not a pasted composite board). This stable and rigid material also provides a humidity buffer to help stabilize the interior environment through any humidity swings in the storage room.
  • The exterior is covered in a coated moisture-resistant cotton-based material, for wipeability and to resist liquid spills
  • The interior is lined with cover-weight acid-free paper stock
