The new subvariants of Omicron are strengthening their grip in Australia, resulting in over 300,000 cases recorded in the span of only seven days. The regulatory bodies in the country predict an increase in cases due to the fast spread of subvariants, BA.4 and BA.5.

Moreover, as we know that Australian winter is in full swing, the probability of virus transmission is twice the predicted percentage. The reason is that people often prefer to keep windows and doors closed so that cold air doesn’t seep into the indoor space.

Consequently, there is no room for the fresh air to dilute the concentrated and stale air, leaving your space contaminated with airborne virus particles.  

Due to the situation, authorities are spreading the message across the nation to wear masks, maintain social distance and get a booster vaccination shot.

The Chief Medical Officer of Australia has indicated that the number of people ending up in hospitals is soon to spike; therefore, businesses must implement work-from-home practices to mitigate the risk of the virus.

However, employees who still need to come to keep the business up and running must have a safe breathing environment. Apart from rolling out precautionary measures, such as wearing masks, maintaining hand hygiene, and keeping social distance, across the entire organization, you, as an employer, have a huge responsibility to go beyond these measures.

Installing a high-efficiency air purification technology has become a necessity to keep your office safe and free from airborne particles. 

Why Invest in Additional Equipment When You Can Manage to Open Windows?

You need to rethink. Opening windows in the colder months is not a smart idea, specifically when the temperature freezes. On the other hand, open windows and doors bring outdoor pollutants, which are equally harmful to human health.

In this case, an air purifier is the best investment for your office space, as not only does it purify the air but also lets you comply with the safety standards amidst health crises.   

How Does an Air Purifier Work? 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends air purification technology with a HEPA filter to mitigate virus transmission. HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air [filter] and is also known as a high-efficiency particulate absorbing filter.

Air purifiers featuring a HEPA filter are known to remove virus particles as small as 0.3 microns with 99.95 percent efficiency. These filters have a mat of randomly-arranged fibers to catch smaller virus particles.

A combination of three virus mechanisms enables the filter to trap contaminated particles: diffusion, interception, and impaction. 

Ensure a Virus-Free Working Environment with Euromate Pure Air Shield (PAS) 3300  

The Pure Air Shield 3300 by Euromate Air guarantees a cleaner and safer work environment. It features eight settings to adjust according to your requirements; however, the correct setting depends on the area size and the number of occupants.

The PAS 3300 is specifically engineered to cater to the needs of a large workspace. There are up to five air exchanges every hour, which means it replaces contaminated and stale air with a fresh one up to five times an hour.

However, air exchanges also depend on the number of people in the room and the type of activity performed. 

The air cleaner boasts a pre-filter and a HEPA 14 filter for effective air filtration in your office room. Since it features a high-efficiency air filter, the PAS 3300 removes suspended air particles and aerosols with 99.995 percent efficiency.

Moreover, it also offers a continuous cleaning cycle since it has multiple air exchanges, leading to a safe breathing environment.
