How does filtration work ?
The WAIR filtration is based on two key points: the filter, and the morphological structure. The combination of these two elements is the heart of our innovation and the guarantee of our scarves efficiency.
Our filter is made of several layers: an active carbon layer, a bactericide layer, and an electrostatic one. The active carbon catches gazes and smells. The bactericide layer stops and kills the bacteria in the air. And the electrostatic filter catches the largest particles (dust …), and the tiniest ones which can measure 0.1μm (=PM0,1μm), as well as pollen. To develop these filters, WAIR worked with some air quality experts, and an independent certification center: APAVE. It is this organization that could carry out many tests on our WAIR scarves, and certify them with professional standards. Our scarves are certified. Filtration norms are rather complex and vague; you’ll find some precise information on our Standards page. We have chosen a filtration level that is around 90%, but with a satisfactory breathing feeling. We can’t claim that we filter perfectly, because it is just impossible. We insure you an excellent filtration and breathing comfort level. Everything is certified by one of the biggest certification centers in France. 99% filtration efficiency would tend to reduce the breathing comfort. As we developed our product for the bike enthusiasts, we thought that breathing is a critical aspect of the product. New filters will be offered in the coming months. To keep this high filtration efficiency, you have to change your filter every month, whether you use it or not. The fabrics used are “active”, so as long as they are in contact with the air, they start working and catching pollutants. After a month, your efficiency is decreasing, it starts saturating and then releasing the pollutants they first caught.
WAIR guarantees an efficient filtration only if you change your filters every month, starting at their opening date.
Sealing is the key for real efficiency. Even with the best filter in the world, if your structure isn’t sealed, your filter is useless. The polluted air will pass through the leaks on your face, and not through the filter. This is why WAIR developed this special structure, so you have a perfect sealing on your face. So no leaks, and all the air goes through the filter.
Remember that WAIR brings you a very high filtration, combined with an excellent sealing, so it really works. It is certified.
The SUPAIRMAN app, the personnal assitant who helps you living better in the city
Air pollution is a threat, but unfortunately most of the time it is invisible. Today, the access to air quality information, and especially its analysis, is very complex. This is why we offer you this air pollution real time mapping tool, for free. Knowing the air quality around you has never been so simple. Just check SUPAIRMAN by WAIR, and you will know the air quality index around you, in real time, regarding your geolocation. SUPAIRMAN will tell you precise information about the air pollutants, and will tell you if you have to wear your WAIR or not.
The closer the index is to 100 (and green on the map), the cleaner the air is. The closer the index is to 0 (and red on the map), the more polluted the air is. Pollen and allergic substances will also be indicated. No excuses to not be informed before having a ride in the city!
