CLAIMS

1. A container (1) for a plurality of containers (1) movable on guides extending in a given direction (D) to define a compactable archive (1000); said container (1) being peripherally delimited by a plurality of substantially rectangular walls (4) parallel to said direction (D), having given thickness and transversally connected end to end and in a fluid-tight manner to peripherally delimit a prismatic volume (VL) developed according to said direction (D) and accessible according to said direction (D) through at least one opening (A) (A' ) transversal to said direction (D); each said opening (A) (A' ) being delimited by a peripheral frame (20) (20' ) ; characterized in that each said frame (20) (20' ) has at least one step (21) for shape-defining a labyrinth clearance (AP) with an opposing frame (20') (20).

2. The container according to claim 1, characterized in that each said frame (20) (20') carries a stepped body (22) (24) which extends in a direction transversal to the respective said wall (4), is thicker than said wall (4) and comprises a free flap (226) (246) folded below the respective said wall (4), parallel to said direction (D) .

3. The container according to claim 2, characterized in that said flap (226) (246) is detached from said frame (20) (20' ) .

4. The container according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that each said wall (4) has a multilayer structure provided with at least a first panel (10) and a second panel (40) overlapping to delimit an air gap (50) having given thickness and developed parallel to said direction (D) ; said first panel (10) and said second panel (40) of each said wall (4) having a substantially identical extension in said direction (D) to impart a given stepped shape to each respective said frame (20) (20') .

5. The container according to claim 4, characterised in that it comprises connection members (52) having a joint portion (52') provided with a pair of opposing beam pockets (520) designed to couple, end to end, two of said first panels (10) and/or two of said second panels (40); each said connection member (52) comprising a transversal abutment member (54) extending between one said first wall (10) and one said second wall (40) for spacing them apart at a given distance, so that each said air gap (50) develops parallel to said direction (D) .

6. The container according to any one of the claims 2-5, characterized in that each said stepped body (22) (24) is associated with fire-retardant material of inorganic composite type and/or with a reagent material that increases its volume as the temperature increases to fully engage said clearance (AP) .

7. The container according to any one of the preceding claims 4-6, characterized in that at least one pair of said first consecutive panels (10) or said second consecutive panels (40) are coupled end to end through a respective stepped portion.

8. The container according to claim 7, characterized in that said stepped portion is "U"-shaped or "S"-shaped.

9. The container according to claim 8, characterized in that fire-retardant material is associated with at least one said stepped portion.

10. The container according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that it comprises at least one inner wall (IW) transversal to said direction (D) to divide said prismatic volume (VL) into at least two parts.

11. A compactable archive (1000) comprising at least two containers (1) movable individually on guides extending in a given direction (D); each said container (1) being peripherally delimited by a plurality of substantially rectangular walls (4) parallel to said direction (D) , having given thickness and connected transversally end to end and in a fluid-tight manner to peripherally delimit a prismatic volume (VL) developed according to said direction (D) and accessible according to said direction (D) through at least one opening (A) (A' ) transversal to said direction (D) ; each said opening (A) (A' ) being delimited by a peripheral frame (20) (20' ) ; characterized in that each said frame (20) (20' ) has at least one step (21) to define a shape seal with an opposing frame (20') (20).

12. The archive according to claim 11, characterized in that each said frame (20) (20') has a stepped body (22) (24) which has a thickness greater than said wall (4) and comprises a free flap (226) (246) folded below the respective said wall (4), parallel to said direction (D) .

13. The archive according to claim 12, characterized in that said flap (226) (246) is detached from said frame (20) (20' ) .

14. The archive according to any one of the claims 11-13, characterized in that each said wall (4) has a multilayer structure provided with at least one first panel (10) and one second panel (40) overlapping to delimit an air gap (50) having given thickness and developed parallel to said direction (D); said first panel (10) and said second panel (40) of each said wall (4) having different extension in said direction (D) to give a stepped shape to each respective said frame (20) (20' ) .

15. The archive according to claim 14, characterized in that it comprises connection members (52) having a joint portion (52') provided with a pair of opposing beam pockets (520) adapted to couple end to end two said first panels (10) and/or two said second panels (40); each said connection member (52) comprising a transversal abutment member (54) extending between one said first wall (10) and one said second wall (40) to space them at a given distance so that each said air gap (50) develops parallel to said direction (D) .

16. The archive according to any one of the claims 11-15, characterized in that each said stepped body (22) (24) is associated with fire-retardant material of inorganic composite type and/or with reagent material that increases its volume as the temperature increases to fully engage said clearance (AP) .

17. The archive according to any one of the claims 11-16, characterized in that it comprises at least one inner wall (IW) transversal to said direction (D) to divide said prismatic volume (VL) into at least two parts.
