People often ask us if the air they breathe is safe. So we made a video to explain. There’s no cost, no obligation, just 1 minute of your time. Watch the video here.

Here’s a few questions for you:

  1. How clean is the air in your workplace?
  2. Do you suffer from sickness and headaches at work?
  3. Do you suffer from hayfever and allergies at work?
  4. How polluted is the air outside your office?

Use air filters and an air purifier to clean the air in your gym


When you exercise, you breathe in a bigger volume of air – which also means that you inhale a larger number of unhealthy particles in outdoor or indoor air. When you rest, you normally take 12-15 breaths per minute. One breath consists of around half a litre of air. During exercise, your intake of air rises from 6-7 litres per minute to up to 100-120 litres per minute.

Exercising outdoors, walking, running, playing tennis or performing some other outdoor training activity, means you have much less control over the air you breathe. If you live in a pollution hotspot you should avoid exercising near roads where the traffic is heavy.  The requirements for creating a healthy indoor environment will vary, depending on where you live.  Indoor air pollution can exceed acceptable levels for fine particles a hundredfold. When particles and other substances pass into indoor air, they combine in new ways with the substances and particles already present inside buildings. These combinations can be much more aggressive and, therefore, more harmful to us.

High-quality filters in a building’s ventilation system can filter and eliminate a significant proportion of the airborne particles originating from outdoors. And an air purifier can be used to remove pollutants from indoor sources. If these measures are taken, the indoor air quality (IAQ) can be improved considerably, even in places where the outdoor air is heavily polluted. Continue reading
