Whether you’re an avid private art collector or curator for art galleries or museums, if you’re looking for a professional solution to properly organize and store expensive artworks, you are at the right place!
With three types of art racks and seven different options, Fortisco offers a wide range of storage solutions that are designed to compactly and safely store valuable and irreplaceable artwork collection.
Our high capacity artwork storage racks can be installed as a static or flexible mobile storage system, depending on your storage needs. Our wide range of artwork storage solution is also famous for its compact and space-saving designs.
Static Art Rack For Intermediate Storage
Our ArteStore Static range is immovable, which is perfect for temporary artwork storage in museums or galleries. To minimize the risk of cross-contamination in storage and exhibition areas, having a temporary storage area to house any incoming collection is a good practice. This allows new collection to be individually isolated, inspected and if necessary, cleaned.
In addition to temporary storage, static shelving is also a cheaper solution as this simple design has fewer mechanisms involved. This is the best starting storage option when space is not yet that big of a concern for your organization.
Mobile Art Rack For High Capacity Long Term Storage
Up next, we have 3 different product lines that are best for high capacity and long term storage.
Roll-Out Art Panel Storage System
ArteStore Terra and ArteStore Penda are both a roll-out art panel storage system. They are great for artwork display, preservation and storage. The former is guided by railing on the ground while the latter has suspended railing for easy maneuver.
With this roll-out art gallery storage system, patrons can now admire any artwork from the collection simply by pulling the art panel out. This promotes engagement and allows paintings to be easily located and examined in situ.
Mobile Shelving Storage System
Meanwhile, Compactus® ArteStore is a mobile shelving with screens made of rigid wire mesh and supported on a metal frame. It is the most space-saving solution as it only requires us to reserve an aisle’s worth of walking space for artwork retrieval. However, as Compactus shelving involves movement of a few shelving units at every operation, this may not be desirable in some instances. Please consult our specialist for artwork storage recommendation if you have such concerns.
Depending on your existing floor layout, budget and storage goals, our specialists will propose the best design to fit your storage requirement.
Increase Access to Museum Collections Through Visible Storage
Visible Storage is a new storage concept that allows visitors to have access to museum collections that would otherwise be hidden from public view.
With many museums and galleries holding up to 90% of their collection in storage, this technique is becoming more common. In recent years, institutions ranging from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to London’s Victoria & Albert Museum have adopted visible storage to display elements of their stored collections.
We are able to help your museum implement visible storage via our custom artwork storage rack. By allocating a proper storage space for every single piece of artwork in a visible storage casing, we can help maintain optimal preservation environment and ensures security at the same time.
In short, our storage system maximizes the storage capacity within the same footprint, effectively leveraging the available space in your gallery or a museum.
Artwork Storage Rack is Meticulously Designed To Protect Artwork
Noting that most of the paintings are heavy and expensive, our art storage racks are carefully and innovatively designed to reduce vibrations and disturbance during artwork storage and retrieval process.
Made of stainless steel, the painting brackets are specially designed to hold the four sides of the artworks. Even if you move the panels, the brackets will hold the painting firmly in its place, ensuring the security for up to 25kg per bracket, i.e 100kg per artwork frame. You never have to worry about your paintings falling off the rack!
Besides that, the wire mesh panel is designed to have all vertical wires fitted in front of the horizontal wires. This simple but considerate design can help reduce vibration during artwork installation. Your artwork will not repeatedly slide against the horizontal grid which may cause irreversible damage when hanging heavy paintings.
Lastly, art collection should be environmentally controlled by a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. This is crucial to ensure a safe range of temperature and humidity for the artwork storage all year round. If artworks are not properly stored in the right controlled environment, they can easily decay and damage over time. This is undeniably a big concern for our hot and humid tropical weather.

Expansion of office size and manpower is inevitable as your business advances to the next level. Instead of moving to a bigger location to accommodate your business expansion needs, you may also consider exploring a much more cost-efficient solution. Our Compactus ® mobile shelving system is a piece of space-saving furniture that can help you store more items in the same square foot.
Benefits Of Compactus ® Mobile Shelving
Available in two modes, i.e. hand-cranked manual system and electrical, our Compactus® mobile shelving is a storage system ideal for corporate offices. Let’s delve into the benefits for both.
1. Gain 50% More Office Storage Space
Compactus ® mobile shelving system offers more storage capacity through the reduction of walking space. You can easily install more shelves on the same floor layout.
Since mobile shelving requires only one access aisle, it prevents valuable floor space from going to waste.
With Compactus ®, you can easily gain 50% more space. You can better utilize this extra space to set up more working desks, meeting rooms, lounge etc.
2. Organize Your Documents Effectively Through Our Colour Coded Filing Storage Solutions
Besides being more visually appealing, our customizable office cabinets allow you to organise your shelves by colours and graphics. This comes in handy as it enables your operation tasks to run even smoother.
By just looking at the appearance of the customized filing cabinets, your staffs are able to indicate which panel to search for the files or documents that they need in no time. For instance, you may allocate red panels for the sales department and blue for the operation team.
3. Expand Your Office Storage As Your Business Grows in Malaysia
Every business starts on a small scale. But, even with limited capital at the beginning, you’re recommended to invest in Compactus ® mobile shelving as this storage system is expandable.
As your business gradually grows, you can easily extend your shelving system to meet your company’s increasing storage needs. If you have the mobile shelving railing installed upfront, it will not require a major renovation work to increase storage capacity at a later stage. You only need to install additional shelves to your storage system.
4. Secure And Protect Your Documents From Office Theft
With our Compactus ® office cabinets, you can now store those classified materials in the locked cabinets with no worries.
Our manual Campactus ® cabinets can be locked with the built-in lock (Euro lock) that is located in the last mobile cabinet while the electrical Campactus® cabinets can be protected by a PIN code and RFID tags per aisle. With that said, you may limit the authorisation of shelving units by assigning specific aisles to designated users or departments.
In a nutshell, our Compactus ® mobile shelving solutions can easily increase the office storage capacity without affecting the efficiency of storage and retrieval of documents. Our filing storage solutions provide convenience for all personnel without sacrificing aesthetics.
Having years of experience working with office innovators and interior designers, designing and planning for space-saving custom office cabinets is our main area of expertise.
Besides filing cabinets, our Compactus ® mobile shelving system can be customised to your organisation’s specific needs with different interior applications such as lockers, whiteboard, pantry and so on.
