Do Austin Air Purifiers protect against VIRUSES?
The HEPA technology used in Austin Air filters is clinically proven to remove 95% of all pollutants as small as 0.1 microns. Viruses are larger than this, so Austin Air is confident that their air purifiers are effectively removing the vast majority of the virus when it is airborne.
There is also emerging evidence from the UK Health Protection Agency that shows the HEGA carbon cloth, used in Austin Air Bedroom Machine, is highly effective at capturing and destroying airborne viruses.
However, it is important to mention, that as well as airborne transmission, the virus can also be spread via surfaces and human contact. Therefore, it is vital that we regularly wash our hands and practice social distancing.
Both models use HEPA technology and are effective at removing 95% of all airborne viruses, as well as everyday pollutants such as dust, dander, and allergens. The HealthMate Plus model is also highly effective at removing chemicals and VOCs.
For additional protection, you may want to consider the Austin Air Bedroom Machine. This also uses HEPA technology but has an extra level of filtration using HEGA carbon cloth, that captures and destroys airborne viruses.
The Austin Air Bedroom Machine® is specially designed to help those who suffer from various sleep-related problems.
The results of two separate clinical trials show this unit to be highly effective at removing dangerous airborne pollutants from homes.
With the Austin Air, Bedroom Machine, keep the air in your bedroom free from pollution and get the good night’s sleep you deserve!
Austin Air helps to protect against viruses
We typically spend 90% of our lives indoors, often in close proximity to one another.
With everything that has happened over the last year, sharing the air with others can be a real worry. However, there are a few things you can do to ensure the air in your space is clean and safe.
Therefore, you may want to consider purifying the air, to reduce airborne pollutants. The Austin Air Bedroom Machine, with its 5 stages of filtration, offers the ultimate protection against a wide range of contaminants, including viruses and bacteria.
Medical Grade HEPA
The Bedroom Machine helps to protect against airborne viruses in two ways. Using Medical Grade HEPA removes 95% of all pollutants as small as 0.1 microns.
The COVID-19 virus is larger than this, so we are confident the vast majority of the virus is being removed by the HEPA filtration when it is airborne.
HEGA Carbon Cloth
Secondly and unique to Austin Air, the Bedroom Machine uses HEGA carbon cloth, a revolutionary material developed by the British Military. Tests carried out by the UK Health Protection Agency show HEGA to be effective at capturing and destroying airborne viruses.
However, it is important to mention, that as well as airborne transmission, like all viruses, COVID-19 can also be spread via surfaces and human contact. Therefore, it is vital that we regularly wash our hands and practice social distancing.
Reduce the Risk during Surgery
The latestCDC guidelinesrecommend the use of HEPA Air Filtration in dental surgeries to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
As we learn more about the way COVID-19 is transmitted, it is clear dental surgeries are a high-risk environment. Tiny particles of the virus are aerosolized when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or undergoes dental treatment.
These aerosolized droplets have the ability to travel significant distances and can remain suspended in the air, even after the infected person has left the room.
Therefore, using Austin Air machines the hospitals, and dental clinics, can ensure the safety of their doctors, patients, and the staff during surgeries.
