Our “PAF” (patent applied for) door design

An obvious concern when building a humidified or dehumidified cabinet is that the humidity level inside the cabinet can be significantly higher or lower than the ambient humidity level in the room the cabinet is located in. Since the cabinets are made of solid wood, they face some of the same challenges as the guitars they protect. The cabinet door frames can easily warp from being very dry on one side of the door, and very moist on the other. We cut our door sides into three strips and turn the center strip so that the wood grain goes a different direction to reduce warping. However that alone isn’t always enough. To avoid warping, the door needs to allow the humidity level in the cabinet to saturate the door frame. To facilitate this, we designed a door with channels and vents to saturate the door with the humidity level
