Entomological storage preserves your museum’s insect specimen collections in securely sealed entomology cabinets; available in a range of shapes and sizes to suit your specimen storage requirements.

All Ampfab Entomology Cabinets and specimen collection storage cabinets are built to the Natural History Museum’s exacting specifications using inert materials throughout.

Each Ampfab specialist cabinet is of a fully welded steel construction and is designed and manufactured to last for a minimum of fifty years; ensuring the safe storage of specimen collections that are often irreplaceable.

The highest build standards with extremely fine tolerances ensure Ampfab Entomology storage units have a complete seal which precludes the ingress of undesirable organisms. All plastazote used during manufacture is Museum friendly with an inert adhesive, as specified by The Natural History Museum in London.

All preservation storage cabinets supplied by Ampfab are individually dual point locking and fitted with highly resilient nylon slides to both protect the wooden drawers and assist with drawer movement.

Entomology Cabinets by Ampfab can be designed and manufactured to bespoke specifications to accommodate drawers that may be outside normal dimensions or if you want to store your collection in a different format, say side by side in double drawer units for example and can be mounted on mobile bases or bolted together in many combinations for best use of limited space.

There are access holes in the sides,back and tops of the units which are securely blanked off when not in use and these holes can be used to bolt the cabinets back to back, side by side or on top of each other, the cabinets are structurally substantial enough for the units to be stacked at any desired and/or practical height.

Our cabinets can be supplied in a wide range of polyester powder coated colours and finishes and can even be fitted out with graphics.
