Film & Sound
The Hill Company specialise in looking after precious film and sound master recordings holding them in our secure facilities at the correct temperature and humidity to maximise their lifespan. All of our digital media are stored under environmental conditions in accordance with the British Standard.
Your film & sound master recordings will be stored within our durasteel vault. Durasteel combines lightness, strength, impact resistance and durability with exceptional fire resistance.
The Inergen gas system used in the durasteel vault is a total flooding, clean agent, and fire suppression system designed to provide a uniform concentration within the protected area.
The Inergen gas that is contained within the fire suppression system is a fast, effective and safe gas that conforms to the highest environmental and safety standards. Inergen gas is a mixture of Nitrogen, Argon and Carbon Dioxide. It extinguishes fire by reducing the oxygen levels within the affected area by below 15%, which is the point at which the majority of combustible materials will no longer burn.
All of our digital media is secure as our durasteel vault is fully alarmed and CCTV monitored in order to record every individual who enters and exits the durasteel vault. Only people who have been authorised are able to enter the vault. Digital Media is available 24 hours of the day, 7 days per week and may be retrieved on an emergency 2 hour or standard next day or same day service. All forms of Digital Media are barcoded, tracked and traced via our hand held pocket PCs which capture client's signature on delivery/collection.
We appreciate that the Media Sector can have data which doesn’t come in a standard format which means we can store items ranging from A4 Files to Television Props. We also understand that media storage can come in a range of different sizes too.
The Hill Company offer a secure confidential destruction service which always matches the standard of EN15713. This means you can have confidence in us that any items you want securely destroyed, will always be done to a high standard with a certificate to match.
