The British Museum, one of the largest and most comprehensive museums in the world, houses over eight million works illustrating human culture and history. This vast collection requires carefully controlled environmental conditions to prevent damage, so when their permanent dehumidification system unexpectedly broke down, raising relative humidity levels to a harmful 80%, they urgently contacted our company to help.
Within 24 hours, we delivered a fleet of our compact yet powerful FD40 Series 2 dehumidifiers on a three-week hire. Despite the enormous volume of the museum’s galleries and storage facilities, the FD40s units quickly brought the relative humidity down to the target level of 50%. The customer was “overly happy” with the fast delivery and performance of the units, which protected fragile artefacts while blending into the background with their modern, low-profile design.
