FAQ

Air Quality

What are common air quality problems?

As a result of the current environmental conditions, we face the presence of suspended and invisible microparticles every time we breathe. The elevated level of air pollution inevitably raises the amount of chemical, physical and biological pollutants inside buildings.

The air quality depends on the amount of suspended particles it contains. Fine or coarse particles can linger in the air for multiple hours, and can carry allergens and dust, but also active viruses (ie. Covid-19).

How do aerosols behave? How does the Covid-virus travel through air?

In a closed environment, heavier particles can travel up to 2 metres. The smaller particles and aerosols (produced when coughing, sneezing or talking) can travel up to 10 metres and stay suspended in the air for hours.

Some aerosols can carry active viruses. When inhaled, these aerosols are a source of transmission. Indirect contamination can happen when touching your mouth, nose or eyes.

How do I test my air quality?

Our AIR8 specialists can provide you with an air quality check for you to understand what type of particles are present in the air. Moreover, we offer a variety of air quality monitors with multiple air sensors that allow real-time monitoring of the air parameters.

What does the air quality meters check?

The levels in the air of the following: Carbon dioxide (CO2), PM2.5 / PM10, Formaldehyde Gas (HCHO), Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC), Temperature, Humidity.

How can I reduce risk of transmission of Covid-19?

By natural ventilation supported with powerful HEPA filtration systems for the maximum result.

AIR8 solution

How does our solution work?

Our devices are powered by a silent fan absorbing the air from your room, pushing it through various filtration levels and blowing clean air out again.

The AIR8 devices have between 4 and 6 filtration stages which include pre-filtration, HEPA filtration, carbon filtration, cold catalyst, UV-GI light as well as ionisation. Thanks to this cutting-edge air disinfection devices, 99,97% of all air particles are being removed from the air.

What does HEPA stand for and where does it come from?

HEPA, which stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air, is an efficiency standard for air filters.

HEPA filters were first created during World War II, to enhance the filtration process of gas masks. Later they were used to prevent the spread of radioactive contaminants floating in the air. Over the decades, the HEPA filters evolved and started to be used in various high technology industries such as aerospace, manufacturing that require contamination control, hospitals, homes and vehicles.

Why is HEPA so effective?

HEPA filters are highly effective in capturing 99,97% of fine particles that are 0.1 microns and smaller. According to NASA reports, this size of particles is considered to be the most penetrating particle size, therefore the most dangerous one.

The HEPA filter’s microscopic fibre maze consists of interlaced glass fibres that are twisted and turned. The small size particles are caught by the diffusion principle when floating through HEPA filters. By hitting and sticking to the sides of fibres, these particles are trapped and therefore not harmful anymore.

What does HEPA filter?

HEPA filters capture 99,97% of coarse, fine and nano particles lingering in the air, such as viruses, bacteria, allergens and air pollutants.

When combined with other air filtration technologies (such as carbon filters, cold catalyst and UV-GI light), 99,99% of all lingering particles are captured and eradicated.

Does HEPA really filter the Covid-19 virus?

The microscopic fibre maze of the HEPA filter efficiently captures fine particles, even as small as 0.001 micron. The Coronavirus itself is 0.1 – 0.2 microns, moreover it travels through the air on larger respiratory droplets, therefore it is easily captured by HEPA filters.

Is the technology commonly used?

The demand for better air quality has been growing over the past decades. Air filtration systems are commonly used in aviation and the medical sector, also more and more often in working spaces, retail, hospitality, as well as in private households.

Link to ‘is the technology commonly used?’


What does UV-GI light do?

The UV-GI light is an unrivalled technology that sterilizes 99,99% of particles. The ultraviolet light (UV-GI light) eradicates unhealthy microorganisms, viruses and bacteria. Once destroyed, these accumulated microorganisms can no longer multiply in the filter.

The UV-GI light technology has been used in healthcare environments in order to disinfect spaces when unoccupied. The UV-GI lights are safely built-in and exposed only to the HEPA filter; making it 100% safe and compliant with EU directives.

Link to ‘what does uv-gi light do?’


Is the AIR8 solution safe?

Yes, AIR8 solutions are carefully developed and manufactured in accordance with all EU health and safety directives. The UV-GI light is safely built in and only exposed to the internal current. Our devices are 100% ozone free!

Link to ‘is the air8 solution safe?’


Are the units tested?

Yes, the technology applied to our systems has been extensively tested. Moreover, every product that leaves our factory has a unique quality code.

All the AIR8 systems are:

  • EC certified technologies
  • Compliant with EU directives
  • EN 1822 standardised
  • ISO certified
  • Equipped with TÜV certified HEPA filters

What is the difference between the different AIR8 models?

The efficiency of an air disinfecting device is demonstrated via its CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate). This rate shows how many cubic metres of clean and safe air are being produced by the unit, on an hourly basis.

With a wide range of different devices with different efficiencies we can offer tailor-made options that fit the real needs and requirements of our clients’ indoor spaces.

How to use the AIR8 systems?

There are multiple ways of controlling the device:

  • Control panel with touchscreen
  • Remote control
  • Connected devices, controlled via an app

 

All the devices offer multiple features such as a timer, lock option, alarm function, and crucial air parameters display. User manuals are available for each device, as well as an AIR8 support team for any questions that you might have.
