How to Ensure the Safety and Security of Your Collection with Fine Art Storage

At Art Work FAS, we pride ourselves on providing a secure location for your fine art while it is taking a break from being on display. 

There are many reasons why you may need storage for your piece. Whether you’re starting the process of a move or swapping your piece out for a different selection, you want to be sure that your art is protected – even if it’s only for a short time. Our storage facilities provide you with a safe and secure location for your fine art. 

When it comes to storing your art, we don’t leave anything to chance. Below, you will find some of the many safety and security considerations we take into account. 

Fire Protection

It goes without saying: smoke and fire can be devastating to artwork. , We take the utmost precautions to ensure your artwork is safe from potential disaster. In addition to our constant monitoring of climate control, we have installed various sensors for motion, heat, and smoke detection around our storage spaces. 

In the case of an emergency, we have smoke detection alarms and fire suppression systems throughout to prevent the spread and damage of a fire. All of our systems utilize the most advanced technology, so you can feel confident in knowing your artwork is in a secure location.

Security System

Our storage facilities also contain the most up-to-date security systems to keep your artwork safe from theft or vandalism. We have installed a 24/7 hour alarm system monitoring and response by a UL-listed Central Monitoring Station. This system ensures that we are adhering to the industry’s highest safety and quality standards. 

We also have installed a closed-circuit video surveillance system so we can keep a watchful eye around and in our storage facilities.
