Frequently Asked Questions

What is the AiroSafe?

AiroSafe is a first-of-its-kind device that extracts >90% of potentially contaminated air exhaled by both seated & standing passengers with each unit delivering 500 litres of clean air per minute. Onboard a bus or train, every seat can be fitted with an AiroSafe device providing a bubble of clean air that surrounds each seated passenger, which helps to drastically reduce the transmission risk of airborne coronavirus.

What does the AiroSafe remove?

The patented filter in the AiroSafe removes particulate matter (PM) from the air immediately surrounding a seated passenger and is effective across a vast spectrum of particle sizes, ranging from larger specks of dust which can be seen suspended in the air down to the smallest microscopic nanoparticles. This is achieved through a high grade F8 particulate filter and includes particulates such as dust, pollen, soot, fibres, PM2.5 and PM10, along with bacteria and viruses.

Where can the AiroSafe be used?

AiroSafe has been designed specifically for use in both buses and train carriages, trams, minibuses, and coaches, of all sizes and seat layouts.

How does the AiroSafe work?

The AiroSafe processes 500 litres of air per minute. Air is filtered inside the device, removing airborne pathogens and general air pollution. The captured virus material stays behind inside the filter, dries out and quickly dies. The clean air is released into the cabin atmosphere through an outlet that does not cause any inconvenience to the passengers. Through the cleverly designed air outlet the gangway is flooded with clean air, reducing the risk of infection for standing passengers.

Why should I install the AiroSafe in my fleet vehicles?

Providing every passengers who chooses to travel on Public transport, be it by bus or train, with a safe, healthy working environment should be a top priority for all Transport Operators & Authorities – it is simply the right thing to do and there is a duty of care to look after those who choose or need to travel with you. The air quality within vehicles is time and time again shown to be beyond World Health Organisation limits and as such if there is a way to protect passengers with solutions such as the AiroSafe, it should be implemented. Further information on fleet implementation and benefits can be provided by your AirLabs representative.

Will I be breathing cleaner air?

Yes. At AirLabs we believe it’s not only important to remove pollution from the air, but also to the deliver clean air back to you in the most optimal way possible. Therefore, we have used advanced airflow modelling to create unique outlets for clean air to be pushed directly into the drivers and passengers breathing path.

How does the AiroSafe differ to an HVAC system?

The AiroSafe is superior to existing HVAC systems for two reasons. The first reason is effectiveness – the majority of HVAC systems have a focus on filtering and recycling air across the entire bus or train carriage and are not capable of removing airborne viral and particulate matter at an individual passenger level. The AiroSafe has been created using a re-engineered nano carbon filter that removes over 95% of the particulate that pass through it. The second reason is the air delivery – the AiroSafe is the only product on the market that not only cleans polluted air but also delivers it directly back to passengers.

How can I purchase the AiroSafe?

If you are interested in implementing in the AiroSafe, please contact our Sales team here.

How do I become a distributor?

We are currently speaking to worldwide distributors and if you are interested in distributing the AiroSafe in your country then please contact our Sales Team here.

How do I know it is working?

We cannot see the the majority of the particulate matter the AiroSafe removes from the air that we breathe, so it is not always easy to clearly “see the difference” that it makes. However, AirLabs regularly receives customer feedback reporting that they can feel a difference within the vehicle in terms of how clean and fresh the air is to breathe. This is particularly common in respiratory condition sufferers who are far more acutely aware of air quality. In addition, AirLabs can provide a catalogue of data that demonstrates the levels of pollutants that build up within a vehicle and corresponding data when AiroSafe is installed and how much of the harmful pollutants are removed, as well as how quickly. As a part of this, a third party – Institut Louis Pasteur – have confirmed the performance of the AiroSafe in independent expert testing. AirLabs can also conduct air quality measurements for potential clients to demonstrate to them just how effective the product is should they wish.

How quickly will the AiroSafe clean the air in my vehicle?

The AiroSafe will clean a typical vehicle cabin of up to 95% of the pollutants within 12 minutes, based on the windows being closed and the vehicle’s HVAC set to ‘low’ and recirculation. Air cleaning within a vehicle is influenced by several factors which should be considered in relation to this question. The performance figures for the AiroSafe will be affected by windows and doors being opened, and the HVAC settings being set to higher fan speed and not recirculation. The device itself is rated to provide 30 cubic meters of completely clean air per hour per unit, which is class leading based on the size and weight of the AiroSafe device.

There are other alternatives on the market, will they work the same way?

There are a variety of air purifiers and air cleaners on the market that can be used in conjunction with bus and train carriage HVAC systems, but they do not all perform in the same way. These include ionisers, ozonators, particulate filters, HEPA filters and carbon filters. The filtration system utilised within the AiroSafe has been designed to provide the maximum performance capabilities for both air cleaning and airflow. Examples of all types of available filtration methods have been thoroughly benchmarked and laboratory tested alongside the AiroSafe. Nothing performs as quickly and effectively in removing both particulate matter and gases as the AiroSafe within its price range. The reports demonstrating this can be provided on request.

What level of sound does the AiroSafe produce when in operation?

The AiroSafe airflow system operates by drawing polluted air through the filters and redistributing the clean air via a directional fan within the casing, this produces a small amount of sound when in operation. This is comparable with the existing ventilation system within a vehicle, as such the AiroSafe is not particularly noticeable or distracting during its operation. The AiroSafe is rated at 40 dBA.

What maintenance does the AiroSafe require?

AiroSafe does not require any maintenance other than periodic replacement of the filter cartridge (easily replaced in less than 1 minute).

How often do I need to change the filter?

We recommend changing the filter every 6 months, depending on the usage. However, the AiroSafe has a filter replacement indicator. If the LED-indicator on the AiroSafe starts flashing red, it is time to change the filter.

How long does the filter last?

4000 hours. After this amount of time the Airosafe will indicate the need for a filter change with a continuous red flashing of the LEDs. The filter should then be replaced as soon as possible.

Who changes the filters and is it easy to do?

Filter changes are completely user friendly and can be completed in minutes. The used filters can be disposed of with standard / general waste. Replacement filters are available through all of our sales channels.
