The best Air purifier for Hotels

  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 July 2010 Hotels Presentation, 2013
  2. 2. Guest Profile 30% of all guests suffer from allergies 83% of guests would prefer to stay in rooms offering treated air, free of airborne allergens 59% of guests would choose a hotel offering ‘low allergen’ rooms as opposed to a hotel that doesn’t 58% of guests would be happy to pay a small premium to stay in ‘low allergen’ rooms Source: Survey Research Institute – Cornell University, New York – January 2005
  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) We spend more than 90% of our 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
  4. 4. Indoor Air Quality – U.A.E. Common pollutants in the U.A.E.: Dust Mite Allergens Mould & Fungal Spores Other Allergens such as Cockroaches and pet dander Dust – Particulate Matter Smoke Other factors:  HVAC system  High rise buildings  Age of building  Socio-economic group  Urbanisation and ‘greenification’
  5. 5. 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 UAE Standards
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. HVAC Ducts In our climate, HVAC ducts need regular cleaning and maintenance; it is awkward and difficult to clean them effectively The contents of HVAC ducts have a huge effect on the quality of indoor air – “Contaminated ventilation systems are a key cause of poor IAQ”
  9. 9. Legionella Legionella bacteria grows in water and is transmitted to humans via airborne droplets. Legionella grows in water at 20-50ºC It is particularly common in buildings with vast central air conditioning systems and in cooling towers Buildings such as hotels and hospitals are particularly vulnerable given their scope In warm climates with moderate to high humidity, where there is dependence on central air conditioning, as well as the lack of stringent maintenance standards, the conditions are ripe for legionella to thrive. One tiny flaw in ductwork or cooling towers can expose water to the outdoor temperatures. Legionella is destroyed at 70-80ºC, Airfree sterilises airborne bacteria at 200ºC, and is a key measure at the stage of infection to humans. Legionella scare, Dubai, Feb. 2009
  10. 10. The Solution: Airfree®
  11. 11. Heat sterilisation: ‘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
  12. 12. 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
  13. 13. Where to install? All Guest bedrooms and Suites Meeting rooms: Smoking areas: Designated Smoking areas, F&B outlets, Banqueting Public Areas: Lobby, Reception, Executive offices “Hotspots” for micro organism proliferation i.e. areas with high relative humidity & “trouble spots” such as Spa, Gym and Salon Back-of-House Areas: chillers, produce & flower stores for prolonged shelf life (Airfree commercial units)
  14. 14. Airfree® : The Results
  15. 15. Effect of untreated air The visible effects of common allergens such as mould & fungus are more obvious on other organic matter... Increases shelf life of food Airfree® destroys 99.9% of airborne micro-organisms to improve health and well being

  38. 38. 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

  50. 50. “A paradigm shift from rather mediocre to excellent indoor environments is foreseen in the 21st century. Based on existing information and new research results, five principals are suggested as elements behind a new philosophy of excellence: (1)Better IAQ increases productivity and decreases Sick Building Syndrome symptoms; (2)Unnecessary indoor pollution sources should be avoided; (3)Air should be served cooled & dry to occupants; (4)“personalized air” i.e. A small amount of clean air should be served gently and close to the breathing zone of each individual; (5)Individual control of the thermal environment should be provided. These principals of excellence are compatible with energy efficiency and sustainability” – Prof. P. Ole Fanger, Director of ICIEE and member of the ASHRAE Hall of Fame IAQ in the future
