Whether exhibition or safekeeping – the following is true for private and public museums, collections, libraries or archives: Room climate and air quality are the most important factors to preserve your valuable exhibits or archived documents.
Dry heated air can do as much harm to your precious goods as the hot and humid climate of a summer day. In Europe there is often a relative humidity of up to 95 %, especially in the summertime. But already from humidity values of 70 % ideal conditions for mould growth are found – especially where it happens to be rather dusty. Let's be honest: How clean can you really keep your warehouse, archive or library? Clean enough to pass microscopical examination? Moreover, there is no universal optimum climate for all collectibles, because the decisive factor for each is always the specific material composition of the respective collection.
You can buy or rent our machines and measuring devices for climate conditioning, as needed.
The odour neutraliser AirgoPro works with active oxygen. It sucks in room air, carries out the oxidative decomposition of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and mould by means of ionisation and then emits the purified air to the room. This is how you can ensure that your depot or archive stays clean after a professional basic cleaning.
Trotec provides application solutions to check and record temperature and humidity values – and to face dust and humidity in an uncomplicated manner.
Neither too warm, because warm air absorbs humidity, nor too cold, for otherwise there might be condensation – e.g. a room temperature of 20°C to 24°C and a humidity between 25 and 50 % are ideal to store papers. In the summertime this can be achieved by use of air conditioners, in unheated rooms in the winter heating devices are the solution. Ideal are devices with an integrated thermostat automatically switching on or off when the desired room temperature has been reached.
