Our Centauri time capsule archives box is made of anti corrosion stainless steel and measures a full 14 inches long by 14 inches wide by 24 inches tall (inner dimensions). The lid is on the 14" x 14" end. This time capsule container has a capacity of 4704 cubic inches or 2.72 cubic feet. Although dependent on the actual size of your items, the Centauri holds up to about 500 standard document type items, such as photos, city budgets or yearbooks, books and documents, textile items, and important artifacts. The extra length is a good idea if you want to put banners, posters, flags or longer items in your time capsule.
Your archives box time capsule order includes the following items at no additional charge. For more supplies to protect items, order a preservation kit or separate packages appropriate to your items.
The time capsule is air tight after sealing. It is made of low corrosion stainless steel. It has a satin finish with welds polished smooth. It is water resistant, but should not be sitting in water over a period of 2 weeks (provide a way for the water to drain away). While its expected life is 75 years, the longevity of the time capsule protection can be more or less, depending upon your time capsule's conditions of placement. Use common sense and read all instructions that come with your purchase.All of our box time capsules come with sufficient packing to protect them from damage in transit. The packing may include foam insulation panels. You may place these panels around the outside of the time capsule while in placement. The R value is not high, however, so especially if you place the capsule near any outside wall, you need to think about how much insulation you need for your conditions, and add more if necessary for that placement.
