The worldwide pandemic has focused considerable attention on indoor air quality and the transmission of viruses in enclosed spaces. When researchers found that airborne droplets from coughing and sneezing helped spread SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease, people worked to find solutions.
What’s more, many companies purported to have ways of disinfecting spaces, ranging from “miracle” sprays to high-tech handwipes. The only way to rid indoor spaces of airborne viruses is to clean the air.
That’s why the healthiest workspaces use Fellowes Air Purifiers. Our complete line of commercial-grade air purifiers scan and adjust to room conditions, then show you the air is clean. Combined with our unique four-stage H13 True HEPA filtration system, it effectively removes viruses, allergens, volatile organic compounds, smoke and odours from enclosed spaces.
Fellowes’ commitment to continued research has shown our AeraMax Pro AM3 and AM4 purifiers have proven to be most effective at removing SARS-CoV-2 from indoor air. Testing conducted by researchers at the University of Genoa in Genoa, Italy demonstrated to neutralise the airborne viral load of SARS-CoV-2 entirely and were able to remove 99.9999% of the aerosolised SARS-CoV-2 through a single pass of the purifier in testing.
“The AeraMax Pro AM3 and AM4 air purifiers were evaluated in extreme laboratory operating conditions, certainly much more critical and difficult than the real environmental situation,” said Alberto Izzotti, M.D., PhD, professor at the School of Medicine, The University of Genoa and the conductor of the study. “This situation was purposely designed since it is necessary to test the effectiveness of similar sanitizing devices in critical conditions to guarantee their effective performance.”
The results of the Genoa study are just the latest proof points in the efficacy of Fellowes’ AeraMax Pro air purifiers; previously a study in Shanghai showed AeraMax air purifiers were effective in reducing up to 99.99% of aerosolised Human Coronavirus 229E within one hour in a testing lab. AeraMax Pro AM3 and AM4 air purifiers have also been shown to remove 99.97% of the H1N1 flu virus within 35 minutes of air cleaning, as certified by Airmid Health Group in Dublin, Ireland.
