Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance. By forcing air through an ultra fine mesh, these filters trap all harmful particles down to 0.3 microns and are incredibly effective. In each of our HEPA-Carbon Air Purifiers, there is one cubic foot of Medical Grade HEPA to ensure the most effective filtration possible.
Blade Air is proudly a 100% Canadian-Based company. Each step in our manufacturing process resides within Canada to ensure quality and help stimulate the national economy.
Our HEPA filters capture ultra fine particulates measuring 0.3 micron diameter. They remove 99.97% of dust, smoke, pollen, mold, bacteria (COVID-19), and any airborne particles down to this size.
Unlike other air sanitization measures, all of Blade Air's air quality solutions produce zero harmful byproducts such as ozone or hydroxil radicals. We are 100% ozone free.
UVGI is a method of disinfection that uses short wavelength ultraviolet light (UV-C) to inactivate or kill microorganisms and pathogens. UVGI light at a spectrum of 253.7 nanometers is used for germicidal use, since other wavelengths are prone to producing ozone. It has been scientifically proven for germicidal use, or sanitization making it a common use for air sanitization and recommended by both ASHRAE and the CDC.
The difference between our HEPA and HEPA MAX Air Purifier is the power of the fan that sits inside each unit. The HEPA Air Purifier has a fan speed of 400 CFM, while our HEPA MAX Air Purifier has a fan speed of 800 CFM. Our HEPA MAX is designed to cover larger spaces of area, covering up to 1,100 sq.ft. as opposed to 750 sq.ft.
Blade Air filters run at a 40-60dB decibel level, which is the equivalent sound level of a quiet library, rainfall, or low volume conversation. Proud to quietly provide the best solution for our clients!
