X-Rays films pose a challenge in the field of records management or two principal reasons. First, even though x-rays are rarely appraised as permanent records, they are frequently schedules for very long retention periods, often as long as 75 years, and in some cases even longer. Second, as film based materials are vulnerable to damage from inappropriate storage environments, special precautions are needed to keep them in good condition until authorized for disposal. Since x-rays are relatively heavy, Security Vault has heavy-duty shelving to securely support and hold the x-rays.
Security Vault, Inc. is already setup to handle x-rays storage. Our facility is temperature and humidity controlled to ensure optimal storage conditions. With catwalk systems for easy retrieval access, we are experts in rapid response to our health care industry.
