RAILS PROJECT

Controlled Atmosphere

TEMPERATURE CONTROL

All storage areas destined to house Rails can be installed with a costant temperature system for best preservation and storage of documents.

ELIMINATION OF EXPENSIVE FIRE PREVENTION EQUIPMENT

RAILS™ storage rooms can be linked to a system which starves the compartments of oxygen. Reducing the natural oxygen content of 21% to less than 15% (combustion limit) creates conditions that will prevent fire and safeguard the collection.The oxygen content of the rooms can also be used as a  anti-infestant by lowering the oxygen contents of the environment to zero in order to destroy any foreign agent or pest. The absence of human activity in the environment dedicated to the RAILS™ deposit contributes to the elimination of any foreign biological material that would be introduced by people working directly with the collection. Biological fallout such as hair, skin scales, etc., as well as food, beverages, dust, and parasites can all be active factors favoring the proliferation of foreign bacteriological agents.

ELIMINATION OF HEATING AND AIR HUMIDITY INSTALLATION

The absence of draughts produced by closing or opening windows and doors, guarantees a stable temperature and humidity in the archival rooms. This makes the installation of expensive, specialized air conditioning/ humidifier/ heating units unnecessary. Climatic micro-adaptation to the changes of atmosphere and the seasons is the best conservation method for paper documents. RAILS™ also protects collections from direct solar irradiation. Upkeep and cleaning interventions are kept to a minimum, which helps avoid the possibility of inappropriate and unauthorized handling of the documents.
