Detailed information on Correx® storage boxes
Whether you call them museum storage boxes, document storage boxes, plastic bankers’ boxes, or even really useful boxes, Correx® archive boxes can be essential for the safe storage and preservation of important and historical documents, artefacts, and items.
Widely used by museums, universities, research organisations, laboratories, and medical institutions, Correx® storage boxes provide high levels of protection for your items.
Unlike most corrugated cardboard boxes, Correx® archive boxes are acid-free and completely inert. These properties mean your acid-free boxes do not damage their contents during long-term storage.
Besides this, Correx® museum storage boxes are also resistant to water (protecting from flooding or leaks), dust, grease, and most chemicals. They are also incredibly durable and hardwearing, keeping items safe within.
This performance makes these archival storage boxes perfect for protecting documents, artwork, artefacts, and natural history collections when not on display at your museum, gallery, or long-term storage.
Custom plastic archival boxes
Correx® archive boxes are much more than just plastic storage boxes however, offering many other features and options that can improve organisation and efficiency.
For example, you can choose to have your Correx® storage boxes manufactured in custom sizes. This size flexibility can mean that they make more efficient use of the storage available at your premises or are tailored to your documents or items to be stored.
GWP can also produce conservation boxes in various colours to match your organisation’s identity or to help segment collections (i.e. with different colours used to distinguish items or collections).
It is also possible to add print to your Correx® boxes, and they can also have labels affixed easily (allowing you to identify the contents of your plastic document boxes more quickly).
So, if your museum, art gallery or organisation requires acid-free archival boxes for long-term storage of important documents or other items, Correx® bankers’ boxes are a great solution.

What are bankers’ boxes?
A Correx® plastic bankers’ box is another term commonly used for archive-type boxes. Traditionally used for long-term storage of paper documents (before the digitisation of such paperwork), bankers’ boxes are now widely used to store various items safely.
Are Correx® boxes acid free?
Correx® boxes are acid-free, making them ideal for museum conservation boxes and long-term storage of documents, paper, textiles and other important artefacts and exhibits. Correx® is also inert, unreactive, resistant to water, dust, grease, and chemicals, and easy to clean.
Why should I use Correx® museum boxes rather than cardboard?
Whilst cardboard archive boxes are a low-cost option, Correx® storage boxes offer several benefits. These include being more durable and hardwearing, acid-free, resistant to water, non-shedding (i.e. do not create dust/fibres) and generally offering higher levels of protection.
Are these boxes a suitable size for my specific items?
Correx® archive boxes can be manufactured to the exact size you require. This flexibility in terms of dimensions means that if you have unusually shaped or sized items (or, indeed, collections of items), you can source storage boxes that are a perfect fit. These plastic document boxes can also help maximise the available space in your storage facility.
Are Correx® boxes suitable for long-term storage?
Correx® boxes are an excellent choice for long-term storage of paper, textiles, photographic materials, and natural history collections (amongst other items). They are particularly suited to these applications because they are acid-free, unreactive, and offer excellent protection and durability. You can also safely stack them to minimise storage requirements.
Can these storage boxes include inserts or dividers?
You can enhance any Correx® archive box with a range of dividers, layer pads and inserts. These can help separate items during storage, keeping them organised and better protected during handling. You can also use special materials such as anti-scuff or cushioning Bubbleboard to protect delicate surfaces.
