Our satisfied customers include museums and art institutions in Switzerland and throughout Europe such as Belgium, Germany, France, Lithuania, Austria, Sweden and other countries worldwide.


Art treasures within reach and safe - for art museums, pull-out painting racks, painting depot systems and art storage, e.g. with shelving and pole racks, are becoming increasingly important. More than eighty per cent of the collection objects of many museums are stored in depots or outside depots. The storage of these objects of inestimable value for future generations, with the help of secure storage systems, is therefore indispensable for museums. Growing art collections and limited exhibition space make it necessary to expand or redesign storage facilities. Museum managers are increasingly thinking about how to make depot collections even more accessible to the public. Many galleries and institutional and private art collectors are also asking themselves what is the best way to store their paintings. For them, art display depots are becoming increasingly popular, as they combine space-saving storage with uncomplicated exhibition. Artotheques are another area of application for display painting train systems, which sometimes lend contemporary works of art in the large depots to the public.

Knowledge of the respective collection is central to the planning and implementation of such a depot. The quantity in particular has a great influence on a suitable storage solution. In addition, the size relations and materiality of the individual works must be considered as important factors in the planning phase. The planners, manufacturers and installers of the respective storage systems are of central importance for the successful realisation of art storage projects.

Our experts will accompany you from the planning to the execution of your installation and will regularly inform you about the progress of the project. We are your innovative partner when it comes to painting storage systems. Our staff and partners look forward to an interesting planning discussion.
