This Pluto time capsule container is made of anti corrosion stainless steel and measures a full 14 inches long by 14 inches wide by 20 inches tall (inner dimensions). The lid is on the 14" by 14" end. This time capsule has a capacity of 3920 cubic inches or 2.27 cubic feet. Although it does depend on the size and type of items that you want to include, this size of time capsule will usually hold about 425 standard document type items, such as photos, documents, and important artifacts.
In the past, customers from high schools, colleges, counties and cities have all found this size to be useful for their projects. Its extra width and height are helpful for additional artifacts and textile items.
Your Pluto time capsule archives box comes with the following items at no additional charge. For more supplies to protect items, order one of our special Preservation Kits to properly enclose a variety of common items included in time capsules.
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.
