for Rare Books and Manuscripts
ArtRatio Smart Glass Display Tables offer a spectacular exhibition of art and luxury collections, such as antique manuscripts and maps, rare books, jewellery and designer watches.
Since some of these objects contain light-sensitive materials, the smart switchable glass facade proactively reduces UV, IR and visible light damage by switching into its transparent state (and also activating the internal LEDs) only when triggered by visitor presence.
At all other times, the table’s opaque state offers after-hours security by obscuring the location of the most valuable items.
Our patent-pending conservation system monitors the risk of long-term damage to the object by analysing temperature, humidity, light and overall light exposure profiles in real-time and historically.
We also publish an index of popularity to gauge the total time that the work has been viewed, giving invaluable metrics on visitor engagement.
These measures ensure that the artwork can be exhibited within international light exposure limits, whether on permanent exhibition or on loan.
