As a chronic asthma sufferer, I’ve always had an interest in air quality (indoor air especially) as I’ve often found myself at the wrong end of the negative effects of poor air quality.

I recommend adding plants to your building as they can assist with absorbing harmful pollutants, and they look great too. Check out our sister site, Ambius, for some inspiration.

All VIRUSKILLER™ technology uses a unique combination of medical-grade pre-filters and a UV reactor chamber to deliver clean air and remove a wide range of larger contaminants from the air including airborne viruses and bacteria with a single air pass.
