Museum and Archive Humidity Control

Preserving history through humidity control.

Engineered for efficiency, built to last.

The best way to solve high humidity problems in archives, exhibition halls and museum repositories

  • Create an optimum microclimate in archives, exhibition halls and museum repositories.
  • Equipment should be installed to avoid high fixed costs for rehabilitation and reconstruction of valuable exhibits, paintings, books and documents.

In order to achieve these goals, it is necessary to strictly control humidity while storing records, books, literature and valuable museum exhibits! Using desiccant rotor technology in critical areas will provide you with accurate control of the relative humidity ensuring continual protection is achieved.

The benefits of accurate humidity control in archives, exhibition halls, museum repositories

  • Reduces the costs of rehabilitation and reconstruction of museum exhibits and archives.
  • Creates the necessary microclimate in museums and archives.
  • Prevents development of mildew on the walls of museum repositories and archives.
  • Improves the hygienic condition of premises.
  • Increases the lifespan of steel construction storage buildings.
