The concept of Self-storage is widely used for short or long-term storage of private belongings and as a solution for a companies’ needs for temporary storage of documents, tools, furniture etc.
Hygroscopic items like books, electronics, textiles and furniture are sensitive to fluctuations in the relative humidity. Even a heated storage facility will experience periods during the year where humidity increases to a level where corrosion, mold, mildew and fungus will occur and develop. Only by controlling the humidity by means of dehumidification, will the facility be able to offer fully climate-controlled conditions that will protect the stored materials effectively.
In unmanned self-storage facilities, heating is superfluous and can be replaced with Munters desiccant dehumidification systems that can cut energy costs by up to 75% whilst creating a much more protective climate.
Storage facilities that are climate controlled will attract more customers, appreciating that their stored materials will not be affected and disturbed by the result of high humidity.
Munters provide energy-efficient air treatment solutions for both indoor and outdoor self-storage facilities. The low maintenance equipment and ducting system ensure total climate controlled space conditions and satisfied customers.
- Constant climate conditions year round
- Combined humidity and temperature control
- Protection against mold, mildew, fungus and corrosion
