Better conservation of the collection

Many works of art are very sensitive to air that is too dry or too humid. Works of art often contain natural materials such as wood, paper or linen. If the ambient air is too dry, these materials release moisture into the ambient air. As a result, the materials become drier, shrink, warp and can tear. As a work of art ages, it also becomes more fragile and less stretchy and it becomes increasingly difficult to keep it in optimal condition. With the right humidity, visitors can continue to enjoy the works of art for years to come.

Air humidification of Aire Fresh Systems for the preservation of valuable museum pieces, such as here in the Catherijneconvent museum
By applying air humidification equipment from Aire Fresh Systems, the indoor climate in the Eye in Amsterdam is very pleasant and comfortable

Pleasant indoor climate

Dry air can cause headaches, dry itchy skin, a sore, dry throat and sore, tired eyes. In addition, the transmission of airborne viruses, such as influenza, is higher in areas where the air is dry (<40%rV).

An air treatment that also maintains the humidity between 40 – 60%rV is therefore an important contribution to a pleasant and healthy visiting climate. This will make visitors and employees feel more comfortable inside and less likely to get sick.
