      I apologize for asking so many questions, and I hope I haven’t pushed my luck. This has been such a great place to ask all sorts of questions 🙂

       

      My institution is renovating the interior of our building to match our museum and archive needs. Since I am suggesting a mist sprinkler system, I wonder if I should protect my archival and museum collection from possible overhead water damage by using document cases made of either polypropylene or covered in polyester film laminate w/acrylic adhesive (Gaylord).

       

      Has anyone had experience using these? Do I even need to worry about the eventuality of my sprinkler system going off – maybe I am worrying too much?

       

      Thank you!
