Geology and Palaeontology

Geology & Palaeontology cabinets made to measure.

Ampfab Geology & Palaeontology cabinets are designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards as our entomology cabinets and will resist ingress of dust moisture and pests.

AMP Fab can design your cabinet with a range of different features such as glass topped drawers where the glass can only be removed by the use of a special tool that is provided with every cabinet plus glass fronted doors with locking handles for public viewing as well as full locking facilities for security and as with all our equipment there is a wide range of powder coated finishes to choose from.

We have a team of dedicated professionals who have decades of experience in the design,manufacture and installation of our equipment and we can provide you with all the expertise and back up you will need to provide a safe secure and enduring solution to your storage needs.

All the drawers in our cabinets are made to carry the weight of geology collections and are easily removable whilst offering full extension to give you complete access to each and every drawer.

Every cabinet comes with an integral plinth fitted to the bottom of the cabinet and this allows you to move the unit around without fear of damaging the bottom.
