Clean air within our living and working areas is a must if we are to enjoy a comfortable and healthy environment. Given that most
people spend 90% of their time indoors it is important that we look after our health by having clean and fi ltered air in both our
homes and places of work. The use of products that fi lter the air and limit the amount of pollutants and allergens that enter our
lives should now be a real consideration in the building design process. The use of such products will enhance the air quality in
the room and have positive impact on our health and well-being.
As leaders in innovation and producers of high quality products FAKRO have invested in the introduction of a modern product
from the cleanAir family. This range of products includes automatically operated air fi ltering awning blinds and fi lter frames fi tted
onto the window using the RESPILON AIR® membrane.
The filter membrane is a very dense mesh containing fibres with a diameter of 50-150 nanometres. The extremely strong nanofibers form a compact, robust structure that can stop even the smallest solid and liquid particles. In practice, it means that the membrane and its unique filtering functions provide excellent and reliable protection against smog, microorganisms and allergens for the sake of yours and your family’s health.
Constructed of nanofiber layers, the RESPILON AIR® membrane protects house and its residents against smog, different types of pollution and allergens while providing a constant inflow of fresh air.
FAKRO anti smog and anti allergen cleanAir products are an ideal solution for people who wish to breath clean air. Winter time is a season with particularly high levels of air pollution and often exceed permissible standards. By using FAKRO cleanAir products you can still have the window open for ventilation with the membrane filtering the pollution to ensure only clean air enters the building.
People suff ering form allergies will appreciate the use of cleanAir products as it will have a positive impact on the air that they breath.
The ability to stop pollen, bacteria and fungi from entering the room will also enhance the living environment for those that suffer from allergies as a result of plant pollen. Taking advantage of these products does not involve any operating costs and is very simple, especially since the outer surface of the fabric can be wet cleaned.
|Composition:||Mesh: polypropylene, polyester
Nanofi bre layer: polyvinylidene fl uoride
|Air permeability:||Air permeability: ~ 20%*|
|Protection against overheating (solar factor):||g tot=0,67-0,126**|
|Improvement in window thermal performance||~ 9%|
|Cleaning & Maintenance:||
- Use a vacuum cleaner or low level compressed air to remove dust and dirt;
* Over time the membrane becomes tighter and captures more dust particles, while its air permeability decreases.
When cleaning not all dust is removed but the air permeability is improved.
** Based on comparison with the awning blind’s fabric featuring similar parameters, range for diff erent types of glazing (this means that a minimum of 90% of solar energy is stopped by the membrane).
*** Dependent on the usage conditions (after this time it is recommended to replace the membrane).
