LS0H in museums and historical buildings
Turkey / Spain
Many buildings in this category date back several centuries and are not designed to facilitate quick evacuation in case of emergency. Moreover, they are often extremely crowded.
A large additional consideration is the protection of historical artefacts/exhibits against exposure to smoke and acidic gases. The following are just some of the prestigious institutions we have worked with.
