Gilmore Car Museum: One Gift Leads to Another

The Gilmore Car Museum, founded by Donald S. Gilmore, began with one simple gift—an antique car from his wife Genevieve. Soon the collection grew to over 30 automobiles. Around 1966 Genevieve suggested turning the collection into the world-class museum we know today. With eight historic car barns, a small town train, banquet facility, gift shop, library, and executive staff, the location necessitated a storage solution as unique as its cars.  Read more here...

AAM 2012 Show: Museum Cabinets and More!

Borroughs Museum and Library Product Manager, Will Williams, says of AAM 2012: "Without a doubt the best run AAM show I have ever been associated with.  The traffic was outstanding and the service provided by the convention center was second to none.  We will have a lot of projects from this show, no doubt about it!"

Borroughs 10x20 booth at the American Association of Museums 2012 show in Minneapolis received a lot of interest in the art tills and new museum cabinet on display.  Our 
new museum catalog, distributed to attendees, was also well received.

Green Windows?

What does Borroughs have in common with Yankee Stadium, the Los Angeles Pavilion for Japanese Art, Milwaukee Zoo's Primate House, University of Southern Maine and London's Heathrow Airport? The use of Kalwall glare-free windows–a translucent curtain-window system.

The old-style pane windows in the Borroughs warehouse Steel Bay were recently replaced with custom fabricated windows to increase natural luminance as well as acting as a superior weather barrier.

Additional advantages of the new Kalwall windows were a reduction of energy consumption from light savings, the elimination of glare, enhanced exterior aesthetics, and cleaner air for employees.

With the increasing awareness of Kalwall's technology, architects and planners all over the world are realizing the benefits of natural sunlight to general attitude enhancement.
