The Brampton museum implements archive storage

The Brampton Museum is located in the beautiful Brampton Park in Newcastle, Staffordshire.

Archive storage at the Brampton museum

The Museum contains thousands of items, reflecting over 2000 years of local history


With an impressive and ever growing collection of art and historic artifacts, and a finite amount of space, the team at the Brampton Museum were looking for ways to  enhance their limited storage space, and ensure each of its varied items were kept in the best shape possible. 

After discussions with other museum contacts the same name kept coming up. Rackline had supported hundreds of museums in the implementation of archive storage and specialised solutions for their unique needs. As a bonus Rackline’s head office was only a few miles away.

The team at The Brampton Museum contacted Rackline and outlined their issues. The Rackline teams visited site, undertook a space audit, examined the items to be stored and with its 40+ years experience, looked at the archive storage options that fitted with these, and the space available.

Solution – Various Archive Storage Solutions:

After discussion with the The Brampton Museum team, it was obvious that they were extremely limited on space. Their various items came in many different shapes and sizes, and they needed a solution that was not just banks of static shelving. 

Rackline suggested a selection of both static and mobile shelving options to maximise the space and build a comprehensive archive storage solution for The Brampton team. Solutions included, Monotrak Mobile Racking, Prospan and Proform Shelving, Widespan Shelving and Toastrack Artwork Storage
