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

Air cleaners in hair and beauty salons used to improve indoor air quality

Salon air cleaners

Salon workers are exposed to a mix of different chemicals every day in their workplaces. Hair sprays, permanent waves, hair colorants, acrylic nail applications, and numerous other salon products contain ingredients associated with breathing and health problems.

Salon air cleaner case studySalon workers absorb these chemicals through their skin and breathe them in as fumes built up in the air of the salon over the course of the day. Research shows that salon workers can be at greater risk for certain health problems compared to other occupations.

Recognising the potential impact of chemicals used within the salon, not only on the staff but also the clientele, the salon owner contacted Camfil to discuss potential solutions for removing smells and odours from the chemicals associated with treatments carried out within the premises.

They were also experiencing noticeable levels of dust particles generated by treatments such as manicures, pedicures and hair treatments.


Camfil carried out a series of air quality tests within the salon to establish the level of solution required. The results showed high levels of particles present as a result of the treatments carried out and chemicals used on a day-to-day basis.

Based upon the space and layout of the premises, Camfil recommended the standalone CamCleaner CITY-M unit which is suitable for all types of indoor Environments up to max 100m2.


“We noticed a dramatic difference to the air within about 10 minutes of the air cleaner being switched on. We have the unit on throughout the day and the reduction in smells alone has made a huge difference, the air feels cleaner and easier to breathe. We have also noticed a significant reduction in the level of dust present within the salon. The unit is inconspicuous but the change in air has been noticeable”
