Polstore Plan Chests provide an ideal and secure environment for the storage of large format media such as maps, plans, architectural drawings and prints. Our plan chest drawerr cabinet range is manufactured from high quality steel making them robust and guaranteeing you longterm investment. We use heavy duty roller bearing slides which produces quiet and low-friction movements even when fully loaded with a load bearing of 50kg per drawer and a 80% or 100% externsion. A rear curl can be specified on drawers to prevent damage to items stored.
All museum and archive grade plan chests are specified with a centralised anti tilt locking system - this ensures a safe operation with single drawer opening preventing all drawers being opened at the same time and toppling forward onto the user.
There is a choice of angled fronts or flat fronts with chrome handles with a neat drawer front labeling system for quick identification and retrieval.
All Polstore plan chests are powder coated to conservation and museum grade standard - plan chests can be ordered to any RAL colour.

A cost effective increase in storage capacity can be achieved by mounting on top of the base unit, an extension plan chest without having to purchase an additional plinth and top.
Height choices are important as the user does not want to over stretch or be unable to see or handle safely the contents inside the drawer. We suggest a maximum height of 1450mm for any drawer system. To not waste precious storage space above the plan chest, we offer a shelving system and display cases either to fit on top of the plan chest or built over the top of the plan chest. The adjustable shelving system can then be used for large format items or storage rolls.
