Environmental Monitoring for Museums, Archives, Galleries, and Libraries

Museums protect and preserve our past and our great works of art. The paintings, sculptures, papers, fabrics, and metal objects must be stored under different environmental conditions to preserve them for enjoyment by future generations. They have great monetary value, are often irreplaceable, and must be protected from theft. But are they protected from high or low humidity conditions, heat or cold?

Conservators have the answers as they are the experts in preservation and they recommend precise storage conditions. Testo manufactures precise monitoring instrumentation with automated alerting and recording of museum storage or artwork shipping conditions.

Our solutions will help to alert you on conditions leading to growth of mold or excessive dryness causing wood cracks or paper preservation issues. With Testo environmental monitoring instruments you will have a permanent record of storage or shipment conditions and easy access to your monitoring data. Testo instrumentation provides time logs at user-selected intervals with alarm settings if the pre-set points are crossed.
