  • Application

    The Solander style museum case is Archival Methods’ finest case for storage and protection of your most valuable matted or unmatted prints, photographs, maps, drawings and other items in your portfolio or collection. The handsome, sturdy Solander Case is the ultimate in archival storage and presentation.

  • Features

    Dimensions are interior. To determine the outside dimensions of cases add: 7/8’’ to length, 1-1/8’’ to width includes latches, 1/2’’ to height.

    The tops of these boxes have a lip that helps keep out air-borne contaminates, while the thick walls of the case provide truly outstanding physical protection for its contents. The sides and spine are made of low-resin basswood for superior stacking strength. The top and bottom are thick (.142) binder's board. The interior bottom tray is made of 100% 4 Ply Cotton Mat Board, top is lined with white acid- and lignin-free card stock.

    The spine of the case is hinged so that the top can fold open and lay completely flat for easy removal of contents. When closed the box is sealed on all sides. The heavyweight, acrylic-coated black cloth cover is quite durable, assuring a long-lasting service life. Sturdy latches that open down to protect artwork, are designed to withstand repeated opening and closing. A metal label holder accepts a standard 3 x 1-1/4" label. All hardware is nickel-plated.

    “Solander Case,” has a long history: The naturalist Daniel Charles Solander, traveling with Captain Cook in the South Seas in the 1760s, constructed a book-shaped case to hold the manuscript records of the voyage. A case that’s been around for over 250 years must have something going for it and we keep making improvements.
