In an alarming study by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the indoor air is often five times more polluted than outdoors. EPA has identified indoor air pollution as one of the top five urgent environmental risks to public health. Forty percent of all buildings pose a serious health hazard.
The list of contaminants is endless. Examples include contaminated walls, carpets, poorly ventilated rooms, mould, bacteria, dust mites, toxins, formaldehyde (in paint and plywood), adhesives chemical cleaners, solvents, aerosol sprays, fabric dyes, odour from furniture polishes, ammonia, cleaning agents and more. All these contribute to poor indoor quality that leads to breathing problems, allergic reaction and infectious diseases. Airborne diseases can pose a serious health threat. Children are more vulnerable to toxic vapours simply because of their higher metabolic rate. They breathe in more than twice as much oxygen and therefore, toxins too. If a child can’t breathe properly, he can’t learn effectively.
Use for the whole house, offices, restaurants, pet shops, clinics, schools, hotels etc.
Technology Behind OkaAir Detoxifier (8 in 1)
Technology 1: Pre-Filter
The air first enters pre filter, capturing the largest particles, which enhances the durability and performance of the other filters
Technology 2: High-Efficiency HEPA Filter
The most effective type of air filter at capturing dust, allergens and other solid particles (including bacteria). HEPA filters are recommended by most authorities in the world. The 7 in 1 OkaAir Detoxifier uses a permanent, washable HEPA, so it does not require replacement.
Technology 3: Activated Carbon Filter
The best type of air filter for trapping chemicals, gases, odors and cigarette smoke.
Technology 4: Photocatalytic Titanium Oxidation Filter
This filter is coated with titanium dioxide, which produces highly reactive ions and electrons when combined with the UV light from the OkaAir Detoxifier UV lamp. These highly reactive ions attach to chemical molecules, bacteria and odor-causing compounds, destroying them through oxidation. Independent tests by research scientists have proven photocatalytic oxidation to by highly effective.
Technology 5: Germicidal UVX Lamp
The most effective way to destroy micro-organisms, such as germs, viruses, fungi (such as mold) and bacteria. Also destroys micro-organisms including those that are trapped by the HEPA air filter, preventing them from reproducing and recirculating through the room.
Technology 6 & 7: Safe & Effective UV Ionizer and High Plasma Ionizer
Circulates trillions of negative ions to neutralize floating pollutants throughout the room. Multiple studies have found ionizers to be highly effective against dust, bacteria, etc. Most Air Detoxifiers that remove odors from the air using activated oxygen and produce ozone.
Technology 8: Ozone (on/off optional)
Ozone serve to remove odors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and chemicals that other filters cannot.
