This is where PBSA – a company committed to helping businesses achieve optimal commercial potential through technology – comes in. Introduced earlier this year, the company’s Ideal Air Purifier products have proven to be effective and efficient reducers of indoor air pollutants.
It is indoor air pollutants that are responsible for sick building syndrome – a growing condition causing headaches, dry cough, itchy skin, nausea and dizziness, lapses in concentration and fatigue in the workplace.
Last year the World Health Organisation said air pollution – both outdoor and indoor – was the world’s largest single environmental health risk. In fact, an estimated seven million people died as a result of exposure to air pollution in 2012 alone – with at least 3.3 million of these linked specifically to indoor air pollution.
“Reducing air pollution could save millions of lives,” says the WHO.
PBSA’s Ideal Air Purifier products do just that – reduce air pollution where you need it most. The devices quietly clean and ionise indoor air, getting rid of 99.97% of the airborne fine dust and ultra-small particles that enter employees’ lungs every day.
Using AEON Blue® technology, Ideal purifiers filter the smallest particles and pathogenic germs from polluted ambient air before they reach a person’s airways in a multiple-stage filtering process. The system also creates a large quantity of negatively charged ions, which help destroy harmful substances in the air, like bacteria and mould spores.
Ideal Air Purifiers make use of HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filters, meaning they are able to filter almost 100% of all airborne fine dust and ultra-small particles up to a minimum of 0.3 microns. In addition, the technology features an activated carbon filter which effectively absorbs odours, including tobacco smoke and chemicals.
The air purifying system also boasts a high CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) which has been verified by an independent rating authority. Verification tests were based on the elimination rates of bacteria and mould, pollen, Formaldehyde, and smoke and odour.
