Now You Can Go Inside for a Breath of Fresh Air

In today’s world, indoor air quality is an increasing concern and the ability to provide clean air to room occupants is more important than ever. Most commercial spaces focus primarily on cost and thermal comfort while air quality is based on minimum requirements, which can result in lower than optimal air quality.

The Room Air Purifier (RAP) is an ideal option for improving indoor air quality wherever and whenever you need it, particularly in high density areas like office spaces, classrooms, fitness centers, retail and restaurants. It is designed to continuously cycle air through a HEPA filter, eliminating unwanted dust particles, germs and contaminants.

Removal of Particulate Contaminants in Supply Air

Air filters are an essential part of any HVAC system to remove particulate contaminants in the supply air that would otherwise be harmful to the building occupants, or build up in the ductwork or equipment. They are also an essential part of air moving devices such as terminal units, fan coils and air handlers as they remove dirt that would otherwise cause coil blockages and fan wheel imbalances.
