Open Up: Making more of Storage Collections

Polstore is exhibiting at the sold out event Museums Association One-Day Conference 'Open Up: Making more of Storage Collections'.

Following a successful one-day conference in spring 2016, the Museums Association is pleased to announce a new event on 10 December at the British Museum exploring new approaches to designing and utilising museum stores, and mobilising stored collections in sustainable and engaging ways.

Tool storage shadow board for home garage

The Polstore tool storage shadow board is widely used for the organisation of hand and power tools. This example has been used by a vespa restoration enthusiast in his home garage environment. Every tool has its place! Quick storage and retreival, easy identification, care for tools and a clean smart workplace. The tool storage cabinet is made from steel and painted inside and out to avoid corrosion.

Don't call us we'll call you!

One of our main assets is our attention to site detail and care when installing - we don't always get it right who does, but there are instances where expensive and embarrassing mistakes can be avoided by both us and the client.
Take for example the steel plan chest AO+, AO or A1 sizes - they are large bits of kit and this can catch you out. It so important when making decisions to ask yourself how am I going to get this lump into the building / room - off load, doors, steps, no lift, stairs, twists and turns - it is an installers nightmare.

Maintenance Workshop Fit Out - Brookwood American Cemetery

When looking to upgrade your maintenance workshop or garage its definitively worth looking at this project as an example. Its simple, cost effective and produces great results in organisation, aesthetics and storage capacity. This is the way we like a Polstore Fit to run. The equipment is manufactured and assembled in 5 weeks with the installation date booked in the 6th week. Our fitters arrive with the equipment with no third party invlovement - no risk of damage, on time (not too early, not too late) and our client kept informed.

The versatility of static picture racking

The ingenuity of our clients, never ceases to amaze us, especially when space and more importantly money becomes a deciding factor.

Take an up and coming London West End gallery, who approached us towards the end of last year to organise a storage and archive room for them. Without wishing to encroach on their gallery space, which effectively is their shop window to the world, the store size was reduced to the minimum.
