Archival Map Storage at Longwood Gardens

Longwood Gardens, located about 3 miles from Kennett Square near Philadelphia, is one of the world’s premier horticultural showplaces and maintains an extensive collection of documents and many other types of media in an onsite vault. An archival map storage solution was necessary to protect this historical collection.

Archival Map and Plan Filing on mobile shelving system for horticulturist. Fire Resistant Map and Plan filing.  Better than flat file cabinets! only 31 inches deep, these vertical flat files leave more space on mobile shelving systems for other important documents.

A movable isle, high density storage system is used to maximize the available space within the vault. Used in this application, Ulrich Planfile’s archival map storage cabinets provide ease of operation and saves valuable vault space. With their convenient filing height and because they do not require space to open drawers, Ulrich files are perfect for use on mobile shelving systems.

Ulrich Planfiles also feature powder coated finishes that have no out-gassing, another important consideration for archival storage.
