The air that we breathe has a crucial effect on our health and well-being. Since we spend on average more than 90% of our time indoors, the air quality inside is of utmost importance. The presence and size of particulate matter (PM) or fine dust is a determining factor in air quality and is directly linkec to potential health problems. Once inhaled, these particles can contribute to the spread of microbial contaminants, such as mould, pollen and allergens. In addition, they can affect the heart and lungs and cause serious physiological problems (e.g, changes in lung function or inflammation...

PM 2.5 <2.5 µm in diameter What is particulate matter? Human Hair 70 µm average diameter PM 10 <10 µm in diameter 90 µm in diameter Fine Beach Sand Particulate matter, also known as particle pollution or PM, is a mixture of extremely small particles. The size of particles is directly linked to their potential for causing health problems. The smaller these particles are, the more hazardous they are to your health. Particulate matter can be grouped into two categories: PM10 Inhalable particles, with an aerodynamic diameter of up to 10 μm (all smaller particles are included). Particles of this...

1 4 2l3 How particulate matter enters your body 1 Particulate matter enters our respiratory (lung) system through the nose and throat. 2l3 The larger particulate matter is eliminated through coughing, sneezing and swallowing. 4 Smaller particulate matter can penetrate deep into the lungs. It can travel all the way to the alveoli, causing lung and heart problems and delivering harmful chemicals to the blood system.

The essential role of ® DESSO AirMaster According to a study performed by the German Allergy and Asthma Association (DAAB)*, it is proven that the burden from fine dust is dramatically reduced when using carpet, as opposed to hard flooring. With the introduction of DESSO AirMaster® this functionality is taken to the next level. Its patented** technology has been specially developed to capture and retain hazardous particulate matter. In fact, DESSO AirMaster® is 8 times more effective in capturing and retaining fine dust than hard flooring and 4 times more effective than standard carpet...

DESSO AirMaster* Hard floor DESSO AirMaster® Measurements are carried out at a height of 80 and 110 cm (breathing zone) As mentioned, the size of particulate matter is directly linked to its potential for causing health problems. Particles with an aerodynamic diameter of 10 pm or smaller (PM10) can enter the lungs and particles smaller than 2,5 pm (PM25) can even enter the cardiovascular system, resulting in serious health effects*. The size of the particles also determines the time they spend in the atmosphere. Particles of PM10 remain airborne for hours. Smaller particles can 'emain...

DESSO AirMaster® Continuous air filtering capacity 8412 A regular and thorough cleaning and maintenance programme is important for every flooring solution. For DESSO AirMaster® it ensures a maximum regeneration of performance potential to capture and retain fine dust from the air. The ribbed structure and the open spaces between the thick and fine yarns create optimal air circulation by vacuum cleaners. Tests indicate that over 80% of the dust is released by the carpet during vacuum cleaning. This is a 16% improvement compared to standard carpet*. Additional tests indicate that during...

Contributing to a better office environment The average employee spends as much as 1880 hours a year (over 21% of his/her time) in the office environment. It is therefore obvious that the indoor air quality at work has a major effect on the health and wellness of employees. In fact the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls indoor air quality one of the top five environmental health risks of our time. Researchers also found that the financial benefits of improving office climates (e.g. less absence due to illness) can be 8 to 17 times greater than the costs of making those...
