The Conservation By Design range of equipment has been developed to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for all conservation and restoration needs. Since conservators have been involved in the development process product functionality and ease of use are particular features of the range. Most items are available for sale, but some can be hired to avoid the need for capital expenditure.
This range of products includes equipment to perform most of the tasks required by a conservator such as book cleaning, polyester edge welding, board chopping and creasing, box making, vacuum packing and many more. Included in the range is specialist equipment for Libraries, Archives, Museums, Historic Houses and Galleries, from large mobile automatic book cleaners to mini HEPA vacuum cleaning machines. Particularly interesting is the new monitoring equipment for environmental control that includes measurement devices for oxygen in sealed packages; this equipment is vital for all conservators looking at Anoxic conditions.
