    Hi all,

    Our museum is looking to redo our on-site collection storage areas. We are specifically focusing on our framed works, and will hang these on mobile and static art racks. We have received some competitive quotes from multiple companies, with systems that vary slightly.

    1. Can anyone share their experiences with mobile art racks that move horizontally as opposed to the pull out system?
    Horizontal art racks free up more space, but pull out art racks seem to be more common in the field. Any thoughts?
    2. Can anyone share their experiences working with Patterson Pope (if you have before)? *If preferred, this information can be shared with a brief phone call.

    I”m hoping your insight will help us get closer to a decision. We think both systems are great and could work for our space and collection. Any comments you have are appreciated.

    Thank you,
