Secure Archive Environments
Ardington Archives currently has a total document storage capacity of over 100,000 boxes across three archive stores, together with our in-house argonite pods and secure vaults.
Our facilities are modern and purpose-built for storage. In addition, we have the option to expand our secure archive environments to increase total capacity.
Offering three levels of storage, our secure archive environments include the premium level BS 4971 compliant secure vaults, bespoke argonite pod fire suppression units, and the main secure archive stores where the bulk of the documents are housed. Many clients use a mix of these levels depending on the type of documents being stored. As part of our service, we can discuss with you and advise on the most appropriate archive level for your business needs.
Our secure vaults are built to BS4971 standards, offering an additional level of security, four-hour fire resistance, an internal argonite fire suppression system, and are temperature and humidity controlled.
Our unique storage pods not only offer an additional level of security over the standard secure archive stores, but also the reassurance offered by an internal argonite fire suppression system with four-hour fire resistance.
