Picture trolleys and work tables for safe art work

The safe handling of artworks plays an important role in museums and galleries

Precise material requirements
With the right tools, work is easy. This maxim also applies to the handling of art objects, where a mistake can be costly. In our many years of experience with curators and art collectors, customers have repeatedly emphasised that when it comes to transport and work aids, it is the details of the material and equipment that count. Art Store creates its product selection based on these principles and constantly adapts it to market innovations.

Picture trolley
The rolling stock and the design of a picture coach must fulfil several requirements:

  • Shock-absorbing tyres for vibration-free transport
  • Durable stability of the rubber coating of the wheels so that they do not flatten when standing for long periods of time
  • Good manoeuvrability with lockable swivel castors
  • Tyre material that does not leave marks
  • Versatile mounting and storage options with object protection

ArtStore picture trolleys are equipped with shock-absorbing, abrasion-resistant and lockable rubber wheels that are easy to manoeuvre even in confined spaces or complex exhibition set-ups. The trolley size of our basic models allows free movement through standard door openings; adaptations and extensions are possible so that exhibits of the most varied formats and shapes can also be transported safely. Torsion-resistant frame constructions ensure a high level of stability, as do the inclined system and mounting surfaces, which are covered with needle felt to protect the objects. All surfaces are emission-free powder-coated, which ensures high friction, regardless of the material used for the upholstery.

Work tables

  • The requirements for mobile and stationary tables used in the restoration and preparation of art objects are varied:
  • Side lengths in a ratio of 1:2 for table combinations
  • Coupling of several tables
  • Socket strip, packaging device
  • Height adjustability
  • Stability and high load-bearing capacity
  • Choice of table top coating
