Archival box is the most common construction found in Polish archives. It is used to store loose documents and documents in folders. After opening the archival box, we have convenient access to the stored folders or individual documents and we can easily find an object we are looking for without the need to take out all the contents of the box. Our archival boxes are typically equipped with ventilation holes. At a client's wish, we can make a box without these holes. Sometimes, these holes are mistakenly taken for cutouts which serve as handles to take the box off a shelf - this misuse may damage the box. There are also sidelocks which safeguard against accidental opening of the box.
The box can be used for storage in both horizontal and vertical positions. However, if it is used to store loose documents, it must be positioned horizontally.

- width (b)
- spine width (c)
With this construction, we must be provided specifically with the dimensions of an object to be stored (not the storage product), without adding a margin of space.
The Omni-Box system is a service whereby we produce single units and short series of archival storage products of non-standard constructions or in non-standard formats.
See all products.
The Omni-Box storage products are mainly designed for those of our Clients who need:
- one, a few or a few dozen units of storage products in a special, non-standard format;
- to store a collection of books in such a manner that each volume is kept in a separate box;
- storage products of non-standard construction.
First, our experienced designers make a computer design of a box or folder. After that, the product undergoes cutting and creasing by means of a digital plotter.
Do you feel discouraged when you think of how much work it takes to take measurements of all the books to be stored in individual boxes? There is no need! For that purpose we can lend you, free of charge, the Bookmeter. With this device, which resembles an aluminium drawer, you can measure a book’s spine width, its width and height in just a few steps. It provides a precise measurement, and the data is wirelessly sent to a table on your computer. This helps you prevent making a mistake, which can happen when taking measurements manually. All you need to do is provide a reference number of each volume and… it’s done!
This file is then used to produce a custom-made storage product for each volume.
When preparing a quote for Omni-Box products, we usually decide which material to use based on the construction of the product, its size and the type of object to be stored in it. However, if you would like the product to be made from a different type of cardboard or paper than the one we suggest, write to us and let us know about it. If producing a given product from your preferred material is technically possible, we will take it into account when preparing the quote.
