There is a clear link between indoor air quality and health. DESSO AirMaster captures harmful fine dust more effectively than any other flooring solution, and can play a fundamental role in designing a healthy workplace that improves the wellbeing of employees.
Tiny, invisible particles called particulate matter, also known as particle pollution or fine dust, play a determining factor in the air quality of homes and workplaces, and are directly linked to health risks.
Particulates with an aerodynamic diameter of 10 μm or smaller, in particular, can contain microbial contaminants, such as mould, pollen and allergens, which can lead to respiratory problems and allergic reactions. They can also affect the heart and lungs, causing serious physiological problems.
Particulate matter enters our respiratory (lung) system through the nose and throat.
Larger particulate matter is eliminated through coughing, sneezing and swallowing.
Smaller particulate matter can penetrate deep into the lungs, travelling all the way to the alveoli, causing lung and heart problems, and delivering harmful chemicals to the blood system.
DESSO AirMaster's patented technology helps to improve indoor air quality for employees by reducing dust in the workplace and minimising volatile organic compounds. Fine dust (< 10 μm) is caught and retained in the fine yarns of its DESSO AirFilters, while coarser fine dust (> 10 μm) is captures in the thicker yarns of the DESSO DustCollectors. The carpet's unique structure prevents dust from becoming airborne again once captured.
Most importantly, DESSO AirMaster has been engineered to release dust easily during cleaning, ensuring that the carpet retains its advanced filtering functionality.
