Background

“We cannot buy clean air in a bottle, but cities can adopt measures that will clean the air and save the lives of their people” says the World Health Organization (WHO).

WHO has recently declared certain air pollutants, particularly PM2.5, as potentially cancer-causing. Outdoor sources of urban air pollutants include industry, vehicles and biomass fires (haze). Indoor sources include activities such as cooking, and cleaning as well as from pets and smoking.

PM2.5 is a key component of urban smog in cities throughout the world, and can cause short term coughing, wheezing and eye irritation. WHO says that 1 in 8 deaths globally is linked to air pollution, making it “the world’s largest single environmental health risk”. Nearly six million deaths are in South East Asia and the Western Pacific region alone, and WHO links poor air quality to heart disease, respiratory problems, and even cancer.

AiRazor devices work to minimize the risk of indoor air pollution, especially PM2.5, in our homes, schools, and the working environment. In fact, our systems are designed to work down to 0.3 microns – almost 10 times smaller than 2.5 microns. Our products are also designed to suppress volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as well as microbes. AiRazor products offer great value for money, and are as effective, if not better, than expensive air purifiers.
