HEPA air purifier for home, office & business.
The extra safety.

Polluted room air? Aerosoles? Dust or mould?

The quality of the air we breathe has deteriorated significantly over the last 20 years. A large number of studies have led leading environmental protection associations to conclude that indoor air pollution is sometimes up to 100 times higher than outdoor air pollution. Remember the last time you left your desk with no clue how to solve the problem, finding the answer minutes later by just switch the air around you?

The consequences can be understood only too well from the permanently increasing complaints of respiratory problems and rising allergy rates. Every 10 years the number of asthma cases increases by 50%. This not only severely limits the health of those affected, but also their performance. Millions of days of absence from work and school as well as therapeutic treatments cause costs in the health care system amounting to billions.

Suitable HEPA air purifiers filter dangerous particles from the indoor air and can counteract the health problems.

Enjoy filtered, clean air again.

Bad air at home or in the office makes you sick in the long run. As soon as the first signs of susceptibility appear, a HEPA air cleaner is an investment in your own health. The air filters create better air to breathe, thus reducing the susceptibility to disease. Tobacco smoke, bad smell, mould spores but also allergenic house dust particles are filtered and mostly eliminated.

Hepa Air cleaner: Effective filter system for clean air

Hepa filters are a result of space research. Today they are successfully used in clinics, laboratories, offices and in private households. Up to 99.99% of dust particles down to a size of 0.3 micrometers are filtered and bound by good air cleaners. Now this technology is afforadable and is available for your home, office or business.

The filtration and air cleaning removes the following particles:

HEPA air purifier for more well-being.

Indoor air pollution is one of the main causes of diseases such as asthma, allergy, neurodermatitis, chronic headaches, fatigue and malaise. This is not least because nowadays we spend an average of 15 to 22 hours a day indoors. Scientists have identified over 1500 bacteriological and chemical air pollutants. Dust mites and the fine mite faeces are among the strongest biological allergens.

In the year 2019 17.6 million adults were diagnosed with hay fever in the past 12 months in the United States. 30% of adults in the US suffer from allergies every year. 40% of US children have allergies today. In Germany more than 5 million people are affected by house dust allergy. Residential toxins, such as wood preservatives, lindane, PCP, pyrethroids, chemical solvents, benzene, xylene, toluene, formaldehyde, asbestos represent another major (mostly undetected) danger to our health. Bacteria and moulds also use the dust suspended in the air as a means of transport on its way into our lungs. Hepa air cleaners reduce these particles in our home, office or public spaces.

Air purifiers reduce the allergenic load

Suitable, modern air filters have high-performance filter systems. This means that the air we breathe indoors is sucked in, filtered and then released back into the ambient air. Depending on the equipment and filter package, the units can reduce a wide range of pollutants and suspended particles.

Advice for allergy sufferers on air purification

The number of people affected by allergic reactions is constantly increasing in Germany and throughout the world. Allergy research is now well advanced and often new clinical pictures can be exposed as allergies. Nevertheless, in our environment, allergenic substances are so enriched that our immune system often cannot keep up. Mostly it is the things of daily use, various chemicals, exhaust fumes, vapours from furniture and textiles, germs, mites or even the “normal” house dust that causes health problems. Our immune system then makes mistakes, can no longer distinguish peaceful from hostile substances. Doctors and allergologists recommend that allergy sufferers take a break from allergens and seek further treatment. This means avoiding contact with allergy triggers as far as possible.

The allergy and its triggers
Air pollutants can be divided into 2 groups. Particulate pollutants and gaseous pollutants. Good air purifiers can filter both groups of pollutants simultaneously.

  • Particulate pollutants:
    These include bacteria, mite faeces, animal hair, coarse dust, fine dust, pollen, smoke particles, soot, viruses and mold spores.
  • Gaseous pollutants:
    These include odours, gases, traffic fumes, industrial fumes, formaldehydes, pesticides, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), acids, nitrogen oxides and many others.

 

Particulate matter
Fine dust is the smallest of particles with a very small diameter (< 10 micrometers). The fine particles come from fibres, soot from car exhaust gases and combustion systems (heaters). House dust can also accumulate these dangerous particles and mite allergens. Fine dust increases the risk of allergies and respiratory diseases and can cause cancer.

Respiratory diseases
The fine dust is made responsible for health problems and many allergy types due to the progressive air pollution. The consequences are increasing, chronic respiratory diseases, cough, asthma and bronchitis. Irritated eyes, mucous membranes and skin problems are also associated with fine dust.

Indoor exposure
It is not only the outside air that is affected by the increasing chemisation of our environment. The indoor air quality is often much more polluted. Exactly where we spend 90% of our life time: At home in living rooms, bedrooms, lounges, workplaces and offices.

Relief for allergy sufferers
People with allergies usually react to several allergy triggers. Not only in spring and summer, when pollen and flower dusts put excessive strain on the immune system, but also with the onset of the heating period in autumn and winter, an increasing number of dust particles are measured in the room air. Here, an air purifier with a high overall dust collection efficiency can help to alleviate the symptoms.

Air purifier even best practice for house dust allergy

Millions of people suffer from an allergy to mites and allergenic house dust, according to estimates by allergy associations. Thus the house dust allergy comes as second most frequent allergy form directly after hay fever, the tendency is rising. It is not the small mites themselves that trigger the allergic reactions, but the faeces containing the allergen. House dust mites can be found in our entire living environment and emit their excrement wherever they are standing on their eight legs.

Relief against breathing difficulties, irritated eyes and permanent rhinitis can also be achieved through the targeted use of suitable Hepa air purifiers.

House dust and allergenic particles are filtered out of the room air with the special air filter and significantly reduced.

Healthy indoor air
Especially small children and people suffering from respiratory problems or allergies are affected by poor air quality. Air purifiers prevent allergies and, when used correctly, provide almost pollutant-free indoor air. Dust particles, odours and pollen are captured down to a size of 0.3 micrometres and retained in the air filter.

With the re-opening of restaurants in Germany and the results of the study at Heinsberg, which showed that aerosoles are the biggest danger within this pandemic beside the obvious keeping distance and wear masks, which is not possible while eating, so we improved and equiped our air filtration system with modern HEPA filters to offer the little bit more safety for our guests. It is no guarantee, but we can show, that we care more about our clients.

Protection for the immune system
Over the last 20 years, the pollution levels have worsened considerably. The well-known discussions about particulate matter emissions in large cities are conducted every day. However, many people are unaware that the pollution caused by unclean air and harmful substances indoors is sometimes tens of times higher than in the outside air. This indoor air can affect our health, lead to an increase in infectious diseases and weaken our resistance.

Air purifiers can filter 99% of mould spores
By using special devices for air purification, pathogens, bacteria and micro-organisms can be removed from the room air and rendered harmless. Devices with inverter lamps, UV lamps or photocatalytic filters literally “decompose” pathogens, viruses and airborne mould spores and thus eliminate the health hazard.

Filtered room air reduces respiratory tract irritation

Recent studies again confirm the increase in allergies and asthma, especially among children and young people. In Germany, approximately 15 percent of 6 – 14 year olds now have asthma and thus the risk of chronic respiratory disease. Within only 5 years, the proportion of children with asthma symptoms in this country rose from 9.6 to 12.8%. In general, dramatic increases in allergies, allergic rhinoconjunctivitis and also skin diseases can be observed. These data are the result of an evaluation of the recognized International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC).

How the Hepa air purifier works
In the air purifier, the ambient air is sucked in by fans and then passed through special filters. The efficiency of such a device depends on how well it removes the pollutants from the ambient air and how high the air flow through the filter element is. A highly effective filter has little effect at a low air circulation rate, and similarly, an air purifier with a high air circulation rate, but with a less effective filter, will not work effectively.

To ensure the effectiveness of an air purifier for asthma diseases over a long period of time, the characteristics of the device should be designed for the respective room sizes (volume) and conditions. Learn more

Filtering of allergenic substances
Irritant and respirable pollutants can be filtered out depending on the filtering properties of the air purifier. Here the filter system should be specifically adjusted to the medium to be filtered. These include different gases such as formaldehyde, solid substances such as bacteria, viruses, pollen, mold, mold spores, animal allergens, house dust and mite allergens. Meanwhile, air purifiers are available that can be adjusted with different filter media for each pollutant to be filtered. The filling of the filter cartridges results from the detected pollutants or from building biology investigations. In the case of asthma, a high degree of particle retention for fine dust should be guaranteed.

Useful information for asthma sufferers:
Up to 75,000 dust particles are inhaled with each breath. Also due to increasing air pollution, the number of asthma patients increases by 50% every 10 years. Indoor air pollution can increase asthma attacks, bronchial infections and even cancer rates.
