  • 14 Feb 2023

Leading ventilation specialist, Vent-Axia, has extended its air purification range with the launch of the PureAir Room 500 X, aimed at commercial premises, such as schools, offices, hotels, gyms, surgeries, and care homes.

Partnering with CodiKoat, who have developed the fastest ISO certified antimicrobial and antiviral coating technology in the world, the PureAir Room 500 X features an advanced seven-stage air cleaning system, offering a healthier and safer environment with its ground-breaking CodiKoat HEPA PLUS filter.

This medical grade H13 HEPA filter contains an advanced coating, a unique nano treatment, certified to ISO 18184:2019 (determination of antiviral activity of textile products) by independent labs, which kills 99.99% of viruses, bacteria, and fungi within seconds of contact – making it the world’s fastest ISO certified antimicrobial and antiviral HEPA filter.

Creating healthier spaces to live and work in, the PureAir Room 500 X will therefore help reduce sick days in work and education environments, as well as offer enhanced protection for care homes, surgeries, hotels, gyms, and other commercial settings.

We spend more than 90% of our time indoors, breathing up to 50 times more polluted air than outdoors. The air can contain over 900 chemicals, particulates, biological materials, viruses, and bacteria, all contributing to our health, concentration, and well-being. Commercial and education settings are increasingly looking to air purification in addition to effective ventilation to help ensure good indoor air quality (IAQ) and a healthier environment.

The PureAir Room 500 X with CodiKoat air purifier is the ideal solution with its advanced seven-stage air cleaning system which filters out mould, dust, viruses, PM2.5, VOCs, pet allergens and odours with its High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter removing 99.9% of particles and neutralises bad smells, purifying the air for a fresher and healthier indoor environment.

‘Set to revolutionise’

Danielle Clapshaw, Factored Product Executive at Vent-Axia, comments: “We are delighted to have partnered with CodiKoat, who have developed the fastest ISO certified antimicrobial and antiviral coating technology in the world, to create ground-breaking filtration with the PureAir Room 500 X.

“Taking just seconds to trap and kill coronavirus and many other viruses, bacteria and other unhealthy particles, the Pure Air Room 500 X is set to revolutionise air filtration.

“For commercial settings wanting to create healthier and safer environments, this is the ideal solution.”

The advanced composite CodiKoat HEPA filter is treated with a protective anti-viral and anti-bacterial coating, providing an extra layer of protection, which inactivates viruses, bacteria, and fungi within seconds of contact, including coronavirus and harmful bacteria that cause hospital acquired infections.

It also removes indoor toxins like aerosols, chemicals and cooking fumes and toxic gases including formaldehyde, benzene, NO2 and other VOCs. This is a huge improvement from traditional HEPA filters which take hours to display any noticeable antimicrobial action or effect and only trap these particles which can lead to clogged filters with harmful bacteria build-up.

Lower maintenance costs

These clogged filters need regular replacement and maintenance whereas the CodiKoat HEPA PLUS filter remains free of bacteria build-up and has lower maintenance costs due to the ultra-durable filter. 

The Vent-Axia PureAir Room 500 X with CodiKoat also shows real time, proactive air quality monitoring with an air quality display that shows current IAQ, telling you if the air is good, bad or needs improving. Users can also be assured of the PureAir Room 500 X’s performance since it has three speed settings and a quick and effective Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 500m3/h covering a room size of 65m2 with the unit suitable for any indoor environment.

Lightweight and portable it’s easy to just move and plug in with no installation needed, so the unit can be located where it’s needed most to protect health. It also has low energy consumption of just 40W due to ultra-efficient filter technology and a maximum noise level of only 45d(B)A.

The Vent-Axia PureAir Room 500 X with CodiKoat features an advanced 7-stage filtration system to purify the air, tackling unpleasant and unhealthy airborne matter.

These filtration stages include…

1. Washable Composite Pre-Filter which removes large granule dust, dander, pollen, floating compounds and other pollutants. This filter is easily washable and reusable, extending the life cycle.

2. Composite Pre-Filter that captures the coarse particles from the air flowing through it protecting the vital HEPA Filter.

3. Medical grade H13 HEPA Filter with CodiKoat is treated with a protective anti-bacterial coating, providing an extra layer of protection. It traps and kills virus and bacteria particles within seconds of contact. It also removes 99.9% of particles in the air including PM2.5, diesel, pet allergens, pollen, viruses, mould and bacteria by trapping them inside the filter material.

4. Activated Carbon Filter removes VOCs, odours and gaseous pollutants from the air trapping the gas molecules in the charcoal.

5. A Cold Catalyst filter speeds up the decomposition of organic compounds in the air, breaking them down to harmless molecules, such as H2O and CO2.

6. Ultraviolet Light attacks bacteria and viruses, sanitising the air

7. Ionizer is the last stage of the filtration process, generating negatively charged ions which adhere to small particles so they attract other particles creating larger clusters than can be absorbed from the filter at the start of the cycle.

Working automatically, the Vent-Axia PureAir Room 500 X with CodiKoat senses the air quality and delivers increased filtration when it is needed to protect health. Speed and running times are easily controlled with the Smartlife App, and manual or pre-set speed controls plus an adjustable timer makes programmable running times straightforward to set up.

IAQ

To help ensure good IAQ is maintained, the PureAir Room 500 X features a handy filter replacement reminder with the filter life displayed when the unit is turned on, showing how much life is left before the filter needs to be changed.

Other features include a child safety lock to ensure that the unit is not tampered with and a sleep mode that turns off the display, removing any light pollution from the unit. The PureAir Room 500 X also comes with a 2-year warranty.
