Höstmötet 2015 Gripsholms slott
Monitoring of climate in Kavaljersflygeln - after many problems with mold radiators have been installed, and switch on when the room reaches 11 deg C. There was a lot of interesting discussion about whether climate control should be linked to temperature or relative humidity, the importance of air movement and the role that a bit of sunlight can play in getting air moving.
A special part of the day was a visit to The Kavaljers Flygeln, not usually open to visitors, this extension to the castle was built in the 1770s to house all of the court visitors to Gripsholms Slott. There are 28 almost identical rooms over 4 floors (although from the outside the windows make it look like only 2 floors). The rooms that we visited on the ground floor still had many of the original furnishings including bed drapes, and bedding including quilts in Punica.
