Protecting and preserving flags, quilts, and other textiles

28 May 2018

Spacesaver’s museum-quality textile roll storage racks provide compact storage for rolled items, including flags, quilts, tapestries, and other textiles. The racks are available in single-faced or double-faced configurations and can be directly attached to the floor, a wall, or a carriage-and-rail system.

Both museums pictured here installed adjoining textile racks to accommodate items that were longer than the width of an individual rack (widths can be ordered in 6” increments from 24” to 48” and heights in 6” increments from 48” to 138”). Both museums also requested accessories to help create optimal preservation environments. Removable base covers help prevent dust accumulation and create a sleek surface that’s easy to clean. Canopy tops protect stored items from dust and sprinkler deployment. The steel construction is finished with Spacesaver’s durable, non-off-gassing powder-coat paint.

“The cantilever carries an incredible amount of weight. We were actually sort of dumbfounded at how much weight they carry.” – Director and Regional Curator
