To prove the superior dust capturing function of DESSO AirMaster® tests are performed in the laboratory of the independent German test institute GUI, which specialises in the analysis of indoor and outdoor air quality. During the tests, a specific amount of fine dust is blown into three room simulations with different flooring solutions (smooth floor, standard loop pile carpet and DESSO AirMaster®).
The room simulation is then left to allow the fine dust to settle on the floor. After a certain period of time, the air in the room is circulated again which simulates a person walking in a room or a door opening. The reduction of fine dust concentration in the air is then measured.
Based on these test results DESSO AirMaster® is the first product in the world to be certified with a GUI Gold label .
DESSO AirMaster® is 8 times more effective in capturing and retaining fine dust than smooth flooring solutions (PM10) and 4 times more effective than standard carpet solutions (PM10) .
The GUI Gold logo has been awarded based on the average of 15 repeated tests in which the excellent fine dust capturing performance of DESSO AirMaster® was measured, to safeguard that the results are scientifically sound and not just based on a one-time performance. During some tests, Desso AirMaster® proved to be up to 20 times more effective in capturing and retaining fine dust than smooth flooring solutions.
