Art Zone is fully equipped to design and construct museum quality touring crates and protective containers to ensure safe, easy handling. Our standard and museum crates meet all E.E.C. export regulations, are fully insulated, and include a neoprene gasket seal on the opening side to prevent moisture penetration. We offer several types of crates and cases: Museum Quality Crates, Standard Crates, Economy Crates, H.T.S. Frames, as well as Coroplast/Tricard Boxes. Contact us for a quote. Art Zone also sells used crates in a variety of sizes.
The Art Zone team carefully inspects each work prior to determining the packing method. This assessment ensures that vulnerable or fragile areas are identified and properly protected by a well-designed packing plan.
