Andrews Dehumidification Hire Sector – Art Galleries & Museums

FD40s to the rescue! Read how we rapidly responded to a flood emergency in under three hours…

Some companies overpromise and underdeliver, but our emergency response service is truly guaranteed! We can help get the job done no matter the circumstances, and we love showing it. This was most recently demonstrated when The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square experienced an internal flood leading to leaks in the basement. As this museum houses priceless historic artifacts in London, it was crucial the issue was addressed swiftly.

The initial inquiry came in at 4:45pm, just 45 minutes before our standard working hours end at 5pm. Despite this, our dedicated engineers at the depot immediately sprang into action, mobilising and delivering ten FD40 building dryers by 7:30pm that same day.

Emergency drying for history museum in the South of London

Andrews Dehumidification Hire was recently contacted by a popular museum in South London, after the institution required a temporary drying arrangement for a historic paper storage area.

The building in question is ‘Passivhaus’ which means it is built to be environmentally friendly, hence why this particular structure does not have any fixed plant systems. Due to the building being relatively new, the issue had never occurred before and therefore the consequences of high ambient moisture had not been properly prepared for.

Art gallery in Manchester requires climate control

An international construction services company contacted us regarding the hire of heaters, dehumidifiers and fans, which were needed to control the temperature and moisture levels of an art gallery in Lancashire. The gallery – which contains more than 55,000 items and pieces – was undergoing renovation and required accurate humidity control in three separate areas of the building.

It was also requested by the client that the project was monitored throughout, with reports produced on a weekly basis. Our solution was to supply three DH150 dehumidifier units, three DE65 electric heaters and six ASF21 fans, which ensured the vicinity stayed dry and warm while refurbishment was carried out.
