The best thing about the Van Dycke facility is the fact that the perfect conditions for preserving art are created by the construction of the building. Day or night, summer or winter, it makes only a small difference for the temperature and humidity inside the art storage. Without heating or cooling, it is always a constant 20 degrees celsius and the humidity is between 45 and 50%. Also the overpressure inside the facility makes it impossible for dust or bugs to get in. At Van Dycke the perfect conditions to store priceless art are always present.
