Indoor Air Quality Monitoring
Many modern buildings are designed for energy efficiency and as such have few opening windows to avoid heat escaping. Ventialtion is usually managed by forced ventilation via ducting and is necessary to control internal temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide from building up which can cause drowsiness and discomfort for the occupants. However the ventilation system must take in air from outdoors and if it allowed to do so during an external pollution episode then these pollutants can easily be transferred to the inner space causing poor air quality inside the building. As most of us spend the majority of our working day indoors it is essential that we understand the levels of pollutants to which we might be exposed and employers and authorities should take action to improve the air quality within these spaces.
We offer a range of monitoring devices which are able to measure pollutants inside and outside of the building so this data can be used to inform the buildings management system when it is safe to take in outdoor air and when it may be necessary to avoid doing so, due to pollution from traffic etc. Working together with HVAC and buildings management specialists, we can propose solutions to significantly improve indoor air quality and to protect your workforce from the high levels of pollution found in many of our cities. An assortment of these products are shown here and dependant on the particular issues in each location these can be tailored to specific needs.
