35mm Slide Storage System
Although slide presentations have taken a back seat to computer-based technologies these days, the long-term safe storage of irreplaceable 35mm originals is as important as ever.
Our compact 35mm Slide Storage System uses a "box-within-a-box-within-a-box" system, resulting in a compact 11-3/4 x 15 x 3" rigid box that safely stores up to 1200 cardboard or plastic-mounted slides, or about 600 glass-mounted slides.
Storing slides with Archival Methods’ 35MM Slide Storage System “box-within-a-box-within-a-box” has many advantages. You end up with a compact 11-3/4" x 15" x 3" rigid box that safely stores 1200 cardboard-mounted 35mm slides or about 600 glass-mounted slides. Using this box-within-a-box design you get four separate wall thicknesses of protection (three separate boxes + the lid) for your valuable slides.
Our unique system consists of four components: a) Slide Trays to group slides together; b) individual 35mm Slide Boxes to hold slide trays; c) acid-free slide dividers; d) a 3’’ Drop Front Master Box that neatly and conveniently holds and protects the six individual Slide Boxes. All components are manufactured from ArchivalGrade boxboard and made in the USA.
(a) Slide Tray Bin (.020 tan board only): Holds twenty-five 35mm cardboard mounted slides each. Eight trays fit within each Slide Box. The trays have an extended backwall lip or tab for labeling. Trays have a “pop and lock” instant set-up design.
(b) 35mm Slide Box Each box safely stores 200 standard, cardboard mounted slides. The box will hold approximately 100 glass-mounted slides. Interior Dimensions are 11-3/8’’ L x 2’’ W x 2-3/8’’ H. (Can be purchased separately in packages of 3.)
(c) Drop Front Master Box This is one of our archivally safe drop front boxes (tan: 01-033, black: 01-133) and for this application it handily functions as a master box holding six of the Slide Boxes.
(d) Acid Free 10 Pt Card Stock Slide Dividers separate any number of slides in Slide Tray Bin or Boxes.
