Clean air is critical to creating healthy indoor environments.
The Airborne Threat is Real
Global healthcare experts and virologists agree: airborne, aerosol transmission of viruses poses a significant threat.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that COVID-19 can travel up to 4 metres feet in the air 1
The New England Journal of Medicine reported the virus can remain suspended in air for up to 3 hours 2
Research in The Netherlands found the typical 2 metres social distancing measurement between people to be ineffective… and recommended spacing of up to 20 meters 3
How People are Infected
Study after study proves there are two transmission routes
A person can become infected through direct contact with a person or object carrying the virus.
By air, with two transmission methods:
Airborne transmission via large droplets (> 10 microns) when people cough or sneeze (1-2m risk)
Airborne transmission through small particles (<5 microns) also generated by coughing/sneezing/talking
A Complete Hygiene Solution
A proactive approach must consist of three essential components for protection against virus transmission in shared environments.
Washing Your Hands
Cleaning The Air
We Need to Clean the Air
ASHRAE, the world’s largest association dedicated to the subject of ventilation and air quality (HVAC), published a statement regarding transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and the operation of HVAC systems during the COVID-19 pandemic which opened with: “Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 through the air is sufficiently likely that airborne exposure to the virus should be controlled.”
It Doesn't Stop at Viruses
The average person inhales around 11,000 litres of indoor air every day, with most people spending 90% of their time indoors and nine hours per day in shared environments—spaces that are up to five times more polluted than outdoors.
The presence of odours can reflect negatively on your facility.
Odours from bathrooms, lunch rooms, stale air and more are primary complaint drivers for building managers.
Experts agree that the flu virus is mainly spread through airborne droplets.
These droplets are made when people cough, sneeze or talk. Despite flu injections and hand sanitisation, Colds and Flu affect 15 MILLION people a year in the UK, partly because the flu virus is inhaled.
Approximately 40% of Europeans suffer from allergic rhinitis.
Allergic reactions can be triggered by irritants such as:
These irritants also result in respiratory issues for those with asthma, which impacts 1 out of every 10 children.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are harmful chemicals emitted from everyday products.
Paints, cleaning supplies, office equipment and more can contain VOCs and trigger headaches, asthma and allergy attacks. Other airborne contaminants include:
Pet odours and dander
Fine air pollution
We spend 90% of our time indoors.
Indoor Air Matters
We spend 90% of our time indoors and nine hours every day sharing spaces with others.
While we don’t usually give much thought to indoor air quality, we should. The air we breathe indoors is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air.
Public spaces, like offices, health care facilities and schools are breeding grounds for bacteria, viruses, dust and allergens, and harsh chemicals and odours.
While we all recognise the need to wash our hands and clean common surfaces like doors, tabletops, bathrooms, etc., it’s not enough. We need to clean the air. Why?
Colds and Flu affect 15 MILLION people a year in the UK.
Respiratory illness—colds, flu, allergies and asthma—is the main reason for doctor visits each year.
Flu can spread to others up to 2m away—mainly by droplets from coughing, sneezing or talking and can live in the air for several hours.
Bad air impacts the bottom line.
Absence through sickness costs UK employers £32 billion in lost productivity each year, which equates to around 130 million workdays lost each year.
In the UK it is estimated that Sick Building Syndrome is responsible for 24.6 million lost working days each year.
The average annual absenteeism cost per employee is £975.
Why purify the air?
Our commercial-grade air purifiers are the only solution proven in independent tests to capture the airborne flu virus.
Removes 99.9% of allergens and viruses using True HEPA filter
Significantly reduces odours and VOCs
