Airfree air purifiers

  1. 1. Airfree® : the World’s Safest and Most Tested Air Purifier System The air we breathe is more important than the water we drink General Presentation, Feb 2011
  2. 2. Take a breath... The average person can hold their breath for no more than approx. 45 seconds Yet we rarely think about the quality of the air we breathe every day... The average adult breathes in approx. 10,800 litres of air everyday – air is therefore >99.9% of the body’s total daily intake in terms of food, water and air
  3. 3. Indoor Air Quality Indoor air quality can be up to 100 times worse than outdoor air because of the lack of airflow (Source: US EPA) Americans spend more than 90% of their time indoors Coughs, colds, sneezing, watery eyes and nasal congestion are commonly caused by airborne allergens – sufferers are usually entirely unaware that these are allergies The majority of breathing-related problems are preventable by destroying non-visible contaminants and micro-organisms in indoor air Beyond every day hazards, airborne viruses can be deadly. Outbreaks of Swine Flu, Avian Flu and SARS are a global risk and the likelihood of infection can be drastically reduced by sterilizing the air
  4. 4. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) – The Problem
  5. 5. IAQ – the Pollutants Major airborne pollutants affecting Adults, Infants & Children in the region: Pollen Dust Mite allergens Mould spores Particulate Matter (PM) Ozone Second hand smoke Cockroach and other pest allergens Pet dander
  6. 6. IAQ – other factors Children are more likely to develop allergies if one or both parents have allergies and/or asthma People of Arab origin have a greater predisposition to breathing allergies and asthma Girls have a greater tendency to breathing allergies and asthma Higher education levels are associated with increased tendency Other factors:  Climate  HVAC system  High rise buildings  Age of building  Socio-economic group  Urbanisation and ‘greenification’
  7. 7. Current Health Facts Indoor and outdoor air pollution accounts for 1 in 10 deaths (WHO) Asthma & breathing allergies affect more than 30% of the global population, and is increasing (according to the World Health Organisation) Residents of the Gulf suffer a disproportionately higher rate of breathing allergies and asthma with a financial cost of $4.5Bn Allergies to affect 1 in 4 people in the MENA region by 2050 70% increase in allergy sufferers forecast (MEAAIC Dubai, 2009) According to research by the UAE University (1994), School Children between 6 and 14 years old have a high prevalence of diagnosed asthma (13.9%), allergic rhinitis (22.9%), breathlessness or tightness in the chest (9.7%) and nocturnal coughing (8.9%), which increases with age Latest UAE research (2009) says 40% of children and one third of adults in the UAE suffer from Allergic Rhinitis – the cause is increase in greenery
  8. 8. Prevalence of Asthma Asthma as % of Population Source: GINA Report 2004
  9. 9. Infants & Children Children are “more susceptible” to the harmful effects of airborne pollution because: infants & children breathe more rapidly which increases exposure tend to breathe through mouth, bypassing filtering effect in the nose immune systems and organs are still not mature tend to breathe air at a lower level as toddlers crawl and children are smaller which is more highly polluted as contaminants stagnate at lower levels in the room narrower airways means inflammation or irritation caused by airborne pollutants is much more dangerous takes less exposure to trigger asthma or a breathing allergy due to sensitivity of a child’s developing respiratory system airborne contaminants could affect development of respiratory, nervous, immune and endocrine systems which has repercussions in adulthood - American Lung Association/ California EPA
  10. 10. Key environmental cause...
  11. 11. Recognition of the IAQ Problem
  12. 12. Dubai Municipality is on an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Drive Fronted by Head of Clinic & Community Health, Zohoor Hussain Al Sabbagh Dubai Health Authority has launched The Dubai Respiratory Centre of Excellence, & The Asthma Management Partnership Initiative with GSK Aim to establish Dubai and the UAE as a global centre of excellence for respiratory care – Dr. Ahmad Al Kalban, CEO Primary Healthcare, DHA Dubai Government
  13. 13. The Media
  14. 14. HAAD 2009 policy on standards for Occupational & IAQ EAD Strategy for Abu Dhabi, 2008 – 2012 National Strategy & Action Plan for Environmental Health, 2010 - for implementation by 2015 DM Public Health & Safety – Green Building regulations: “between 1/4 to 1/3 of the 79 points relate to Indoor Air Quality” DM new Building Inspection system launched Jan. 2011 DM HACCP and Food Safety standards Standards
  15. 15. Dr. Bassam Mahboub Consultant in Pulmonary Medicine Asst. Professor, Sharjah University Head of Respiratory Medicine – Dubai Health Authority Director, Dubai Respiratory Centre for Excellence Head of Allergy and Respiratory Dept., Dubai Hospital Head of Respiratory Dept., Rashid Hospital Vice Chair, Emirates Allergy & Respiratory Society Director, Asthma Management Partnership Initiative Consultant at Dr Sulaiman Al Habib – Dubai Medical Centre the only Allergy and Asthma specialist at DHCC Co-Chair, Organising Committee Gulf Thoracic, MEAAAIC, etc. M.B.B.S., FRCP (C) American Board of Internal Medicine, Pulmonology & Immunology Fellow of the Royal College of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Canada Member of the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons, Canada “Numbers are definitely going up...studies show it [Allergic rhinitis] can be as damaging to a person’s quality of life as diabetes or high cholesterol” – Dr Bassam on allergies in the UAE
  16. 16. The Solution: Airfree®
  17. 17. Our Patented Technology Airfree® uses a unique, patented heat sterilisation technology to destroy micro- organisms rather than collecting them as with conventional air purifiers The ceramic core incinerates at 400F and protects against deadly airborne viruses like Avian Flu and SARS As a result of incineration there are no harmful emissions nor maintence issues Airfree ® is non-toxic, non-invasive, and non- controversial technology
  18. 18. Heat sterilisation “It’s like boiling the air” Non toxic, non-invasive, and non-controversial technology No Chemicals, Ions, nor Ozone Natural Just like your grandmother used to do with water, Airfree ® ‘boils’ the air, destroying all micro-organisms
  19. 19. • Exclusive, patented TSS® Technology • Up to 99% reduction in airborne allergens and micro-organisms • Internationally tested & approved, 2 year warranty • Low electricity consumption e.g. AED6/month • Entirely maintenance-free • Completely silent operation • Awarded-winning design • Discreet and low-cost • Does not generate harmful Ozone or emissions Airfree® provides the solution
  20. 20. Airfree® as a source of ‘Sensible Heat’ in rooms thus having a de-humidifying effect → control mould and airborne spores through TSS™ heat sterilisation “Green” Credentials "the problem stems from poor HVAC design, over sizing of cooling loads, the over estimation of the sensible heat in the rooms and the lack of treated fresh air supply to the room. This is further compounded by setting the thermostat too cold in the rooms” – Mario Seneviratne, MD, Green Technologies FZCO
