When dealing with art and antiquities, the importance of preserving the works in vault-storage,
conservation labs and in exhibition spaces is of prime concern. As molds, mildew, bacteria,
fungal spores and dust contaminants floating in the air can cause minor to extensive damage on
fine art and art objects, we thought air purification was an important area to address in our product
line since it has proven so beneficial to our storage and frame shop.
Fine Art Products and Services, is an exclusive international distributor to the art
world for Airistar Technologies Air Purification units. They employ the HexaFlow� purification process,
featuring HAPA high efficiency filtration media. This six stage air purification process removes
99.97% of particles 0.3 microns or larger while providing a minimum of four additional air
changes per hour, surpassing the performance of traditional HEPA filters. For our clients,
this means that foreign particulates that can damage artwork over time are taken out of the air,
preserving the quality of the artwork for years to come.
We are now offering this affordable alternative to small and medium size museums and galleries,
which are often unable to obtain an expensive in-line system, as they are cost prohibitive.
And for large museums, the Airistar purification technology doesn't replace the in-line system, but
with the same filtration of a high-end in-line system, the air purification units act as a supplement in
specific gallery, vault and conservation lab spaces. In the event that a gallery's in-line system should
shut down and need repair, the Airistar 500 mobile unit can be rolled in to clean that specific space.
Or, if the museum's restaurant odor is traveling farther than anticipated, the Airistar 500 mobile unit
can be rolled in to help absorb and contain the smells so they don't drift into the galleries.
With the mobility that Airistars' Air Purification units have, especially in hard-to-reach areas, these
products are a great option for any size museum or gallery.
is "Cleaning Your Art Environments."
With six layers of filtration, the Airistar 500 cleans the air in your storage vault and

Reduces deterioration to objects caused by daily dust, molds and mildew.
