Air Filtration Solutions for Museums

Protecting Precious and Priceless Objects

In preservation environments, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is a primary concern. The pollution levels in this indoor air can be up to five times higher than outdoor levels, and in some cases 100 times higher. Controlling airborne pollutants and gaseous contaminants is fundamental to protecting priceless collections of artefacts, national historical assets and documents, artwork and literature.

Damage to these objects can be caused by: 

  • uncontrolled temperature
  • relative humidity
  • dust and dirt
  • gaseous pollutants, such as ozone and sulphur dioxide 


 Temperature and humidity, if not controlled properly, speed up the rate of chemical reactions that cause the deterioration of sensitive objects. Dust and dirt contamination causes artefacts to discolour. Gaseous pollutants may cause significant and irreversible deterioration of artefacts, metals, historic records, photographs, and marble through chemical reactions.

AAF offers a wide range of filtration solutions and devices that can be individually tailored to suit local conditions. The aim here is not only the optimal protection of your exhibits, but also first-class indoor air quality for visitors and employees.
