A characteristic Turtle crate.

What makes the Turtle so innovative?

The layout of the Turtle's interior is adjustable thanks to ingenious corner support blocks. One crate can therefore be used for works of art of different sizes, and several works can even be transported in the same one. The crate is also very environmentally-friendly. On average it lasts about ten years and it is completely recyclable.

All over the world famous museums are building up their own collections of Turtles. These crates are available in the Netherlands for rent from Hizkia Van Kralingen.

There is more technical information about the Turtle on www.turtlebox.com.

Please contact us if you have any queries about the Turtle or renting a crate contact Hizkia Van Kralingen.
