Archival Museum Case for sensitive/valuable objects

Part of our line of pedestal cases, the P-500 is a 100% archival microclimate case with a silica gel chamber below the removable deck.  Our cases are based on standard designs manufactured to customers’ size requirements. 

    • Made with inert materials that will not off-gas or damage objects.
    • Microclimate capability to maintain the targeted relative humidity inside the case.
    • Air exchange rate between .75 and .5 per day.

The P-500 has a5-sided acrylic vitrine that can be lifted off for access to objects. Vitrine sits on an archival gasket to create a seal and secures to the case with screws. We manufacture museum-quality acrylic vitrines from clear or UV-filtering acrylic and are one of the few companies to manufacture museum-quality Optium Museum Acrylic® vitrines.  

Glass options are also available. 

Did you know we make replacement vitrines to fit existing cases?

This case features a removable object deck. We offer several archival deck options and stock 4 archival fabrics (Oddy tested). We can also source custom archival fabrics. Talk to us about slanted deck options. 

  • SmallCorp’s standard ODP deck consists of an aluminum composite panel adhered to an aluminum support frame, wrapped in fabric.  
  • Our Ethadeck includes an ODP deckbase with a top layer of pinnable Ethafoam™ wrapped in fabric.   
  • Other available options include decks made with HDPE, expanded PVC, and more. 

There are multiple base options including kick plates and weight boxes. A powdercoated aluminum collar supports the vitrine and accommodates security screws.
