Humidifiers for Museums
No one wants to see a warped Van Gogh with cracked paint. However without careful control of humidity levels there is every chance of this happening. Antiquities and works of art need to be protected against the effects of dry air and fluctuations in humidity. A Cumulus humidifier will protect your antiquities and works of art.

Protecting Artworks

Valuable artworks and antiquities are stored and exhibited in museums and their depots. To avoid damaging the many pieces highly susceptible to even slight changes in the humidity, both storage and display need to be managed carefully.
Materials like wood, paper, and linen are highly hygroscopic and will loose moisture when the humidity drops too low. This dehydration causes irreversible damage. The fibres in the material start to shrink forming cracks. A humidifier keeps the moisture in the air at a sufficient level to prevent this from happening. A humidifier therefore provides the following advantages:
•    Protection against cracking
•    Protection against shrinkage
•    Reduction in static electricity
•    A more comfortable environment for visitors and employees
