Qlair is Preparing Buildings to Reopen with Clean, Safe Air
If you are a building owner or facility management professional, the coming months may seem daunting or uncertain. The global pandemic has led to a drastic shift in the way we perceive our buildings’ health and safety, and many professionals are left wondering what to do from here. You may be unsure about what steps to take to protect your occupants, how to adjust your ventilation and filtration efforts, or how to put systems in place to ensure the continued safety of your building.
At qlair, our team is here to help you navigate the process of reopening, with a critical focus on your indoor air. Much of your building operations and general practices will be compromised over the coming months, and it is our mission to provide a helping hand along the way.
As leaders in clean air management, qlair wants to ensure buildings are establishing a healthy baseline for their indoor environment before reopening. Therefore, we have developed the Workplace Preparation Package. Recent literature from sources like ASHRAE and Cushman and Wakefield have expressed the necessity for proper indoor air quality monitoring, filtration, and ventilation practices as facilities prepare to reopen. The qlair team deems it our duty to provide buildings of all sizes access to implement these strategies.
The goal of the Workplace Preparation Package is to provide you with the confidence you need to reopen your building safely. Utilizing air quality and filter performance monitors, you will have unparalleled clarity into your indoor air. Our continuous monitoring allows for real-time tracking of dangerous pollutants, simplified control of temperature and humidity, and access to valuable insights on your filtration and ventilation performance.
Our goal is to detect critical areas in your facility, pinpoint their sources, and provide you with the solution needed to mitigate them. This will allow you to reopen your building with the tools needed to assess, monitor, and improve your indoor environment continuously.
What are leading experts saying about indoor air quality management and disease spread moving forward?
ASHRAE statement on airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2:
“Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 through the air is sufficiently likely that airborne exposure to the virus should be controlled. Changes to building operations, including the operation of HVAC systems can reduce airborne exposures.”
WELL recommendations for indoor air quality monitoring:
“Building performance, such as ventilation and infiltration rates, is highly variable and has a direct effect on indoor air quality. To maintain ideal performance metrics, projects must continuously gather data on building performance. Collecting this data allows individuals to be aware of and promptly fix any deviations in indoor quality metrics. Intent: To monitor and effectively remediate indoor air quality issues and inform building managers and occupants of the quality of the indoor environment”
Our Partners Are Doing Their Part
To help reduce the spread of this infectious disease, our parent company Mann + Hummel and other partners like i2m, Tri-Dim Filter Corporation, and more have been working tirelessly to provide aide during this pandemic. Tri-Dim’s TRI-KLEEN air cleaner creates a clean environment by removing contaminated air from a closed controlled area. With HEPA filters contained within the unit, potentially dangerous particles are removed from the exhausted air at peak efficiency.
