London Events & Turtle Updates

Turtle Events

Earlier in the year, Constantine and Turtle collaborated closely to organise an event in London. This event provided our clients with an exciting opportunity to get hands-on with the Turtle cases. We showcased not only the cases but also the climate cabinet and T+ blocks. We were delighted to have several UK Museums and Institutions attend the event, and we extend our gratitude to everyone who took the time to visit.

If you’re attending the upcoming BAPCR Conference on 16th June at the National Maritime Museum, make sure to visit our stand and find out more about Turtle. We will be giving attendees the opportunity to experience the case firsthand via packing demonstrations.

In addition to events and conferences, we’ve recently had the pleasure of hosting MA students from Sotheby’s Institute of Art at one of our secure storage facilities in London. As part of their day, we invited them to securely pack an artwork in a Turtle case. They learnt the benefits of using reusable cases as well as experiencing how to use the adjustable corner blocks.

Climate Neutral Certification

TURTLE is safe, innovative, and not only sustainable but now also Certified Climate Neutral!

By complying to the Climate Neutral Certification Programme of Climate Neutral Group (CNG), Turtle ensures that its climate policy, in line with what has been agreed worldwide, is consistent and firmly anchored in the organisation.

All existing and future Turtle cases carry this certification, and over the upcoming months, Constantine will ensure all the cases in their stock have been fitted out with this new label.

New Turtle LITE 240

Due to popular demand, Turtle has been carefully developing their largest Turtle case yet: the Turtle LITE 240. The new case has outer dimensions of +/- 240 x 240 x 50 cm and inner dimensions of 220 x 220 x 30 cm (excluding blocks).

In order to ensure it remains manageable for two fine art handlers to easily use, Turtle has removed the vacuum insulation panels (VIP) and used carbon fibre instead of fibreglass for the lid. As a result, the weight of the lid remains below the Health and Safety standard. In addition, Turtle has integrated a jack system so that dolly carts can be placed under the Turtle without having to lift it.

The Turtle LITE 240 will soon undergo various tests and will most likely be available in the third quarter of this year, to be used for large art objects and paintings.

If you’d like any further information on any of the above, please do not hesitate to get in touch via [email protected].
