DRS 451-1: 2020 Conservation of cultural heritage — Part 1 Specifications for location, construction and modification of buildings or rooms intended for the storage or use of heritage collections (41 page(s), in English)
This Rwanda Draft Standard gives specifications and guidance for the location, construction and arrangement of building specifically intended for internal storage of all heritage collection types and formats.
This Rwanda Draft Standard applies to buildings where collections are housed permanently and can be used as guidance for shorter-term display spaces where appropriate.
Throughout the document, where specifications relate exclusively to storage spaces, these are defined as such. Where specifications can also be applied to areas such as display galleries or reading rooms, these applications are referred to explicitly.
Clauses relating to risks associated with security, environmental hazards, fire, water and pests apply to buildings as a whole and to any room in which collections may be held.
