Cyclic maintenance

Any film handling project is very resource intensive. The most effective strategy for film preservation is controlled climate storage. Correct preparation prior to storage will improve the life expectancy of a film.

Projects to ensure all films are wound to the correct tension, cans are free from rust and there are no foreign materials, such as papers, stored in the cans could be considered maintenance. The goal is to ensure that films are properly prepared before being sent for long term storage.

Risk analysis or assessment projects form a vital part of cyclic maintenance.
