The Van Dycke Art Storage does everything to ensure that your art is protected against any type of threat. For that reason we made an analysis of how we can protect art in the best possible way and developed these seven types of protection.
For every piece of art that is being stored at Van Dycke, we do an extensive risk assessment. That way we evaluate the best way for the storage of your priceless piece of art.
Shocks and shakes
- Thanks to the box-inside-a-box architecture every piece of art is protected against all forms of shocks and earthquakes.
The Van Dycke facility was designed and build as an atomic bunker, because of that it is impossible for outside fire to enter the structure. On the inside we went to extreme lengths to make sure a fire can’t break out.
Of course water can not penetrate into the facility. The facility is located more than 20 meters above the Dutch sea level, whereby the risk of flooding is excluded.
The Van Dycke has a specialized system for detecting bugs which can damage the art. This is an addition to the sluice function of our doors, which makes sure that all bugs stay outside the facility.
The air in the storage facility is 100% filtered, and thus polluted air has no chance to come into the building. It is possible to completely separate the air from outside from the air on the inside.
Since this is an atomic bunker, all rooms are protected against any form of nuclear radiation.
