As experts in indoor air quality, Fellowes Brands is delighted to be exhibiting at The Care Show to demonstrate how air purification can have a profoundly positive effect on the welfare of care home residents as well as create a healthy, fresh and comfortable environment for everyone.
During the event, visitors to the Fellowes stand will have the opportunity to enter a free draw to win one of 100 FREE Fellowes Air Purifiers for their care home.
Fellowes commercial grade air purifiers provide complete peace of mind for residents, their families and carers. The range uses H13 HEPA filtration to remove more than 99% of viruses, bacteria, allergens and odours. And thanks to built-in PureView technology - displaying real-time indoor air quality data - you can actually see the air being cleaned.
The Fellowes range includes space-saving wall mounted models and portable freestanding options, covering rooms up to 110m2.
The impact in care homes
Independent testing carried out by Dipl Chem, Martin Wesselmann in 2020 concluded that the installation of air purifiers is to be regarded as a target orientated extension measure for infection control, particularly in retirement homes where regular cross-ventilation is difficult to implement due to the cold-sensitive occupants. The testing took place in a real-life care home environment with a high concentration of airborne particles, measuring the volume of ultrafine particles in the air with and without A Fellowes Air Purifier in use. In only 5 minutes, the concentration was reduced by 50% and after 30 minutes, 80% of the potentially infectious aerosols had been removed from the air.
Certified to protect
For additional peace of mind, Fellowes air purifiers have been accredited by an independent authority.
The Fellowes AeraMax Pro AM3 and AM4 air purifiers were tested at the University of Genoa, School of Medicine, Department of Experimental Medicine against COVID-19 virus contaminants and the study found that they neutralised the airborne viral load of SARS-CoV-2 entirely and were able to remove 99.9999% of the aerosolised SARS-CoV-2 through a single pass of the purifier. In addition, certification from the Shanghai WEIPU Chemical Technology Service Company found that the AeraMax Pro products showed a 99.99% airborne reduction of a coronavirus surrogate and 99.9% removal of the H1N1 flu virus (commonly known as Swine Flu).
