Archival media vaults and warehouse storage


PRO-TEK has been the preeminent provider of high end storage for the moving and still image industries since its founding by Eastman Kodak.

The cornerstone of our reputation is that we verify the contents of every container, carefully entering all available metadata into our inventory management system. Each item is then scanned into location in one of our three state-of-the-art vaults.

PRO-TEK Vaults features

Horizontal film storage
  • 12,000 sq ft total of environmentally controlled space in Burbank, CA
  • ANSI IT9.11 compliant for temperature and humidity at 45°F +/- 5° and 25% RH +/- 5%
  • Each vault a sealed environment, constructed with 5 in. polyurethane foam panels sandwiched with steel.
  • Racks secured with anti-tip seismic bracing.
  • Comprehensive bar-coding for location accuracy, with real time updates provided via radio frequency scanning.
  • All film stored in horizontal archival orientation.

With racks configured for both film containers as well as various video formats, and storage for approximately 500,000 items, we have the capacity to handle most collection requirements – contact us to discuss your archival storage needs or learn more about our warehouse storage facilities and services for non-archival storage.
