Public buildings often house large amount of people. Large groups of people convert oxygen in the room into carbon dioxide (CO2). They also raise the temperature in the room and create particulate matter through moving around (originating from clothing). This all decreases the indoor air quality.
Public buildings are mainly build in busy city centres, which are high traffic areas with high traffic soot concentrations. This makes it difficult to keep the indoor air quality high. When ventilating in these areas, you transport polluted outdoor air indoors and hereby decrease instead of increase the indoor air quality.
When poor indoor air quality is combined with large groups of people, you reduce the chance of a disease spreading. By recirculating and purifying the air in the room(s), the airborne pollutions (viruses and bacteria for example) will be removed from the air. This creates a reduction in airborne pollution and reduces the chance of infection.
Apply recirculation and ventilation
Recirculate and purify the indoor air. Reduce the spread of diseases and increase the indoor air quality (IAQ).
Ventilate spaces where large groups of people are present so there is a healthy oxygen and carbon dioxide level. Regularly ventilating (letting out stuffy air and letting in clean and purified outdoor air) creates healthy indoor air and an increased general comfort.
In a public space, it is important to apply recirculation and ventilation. Because the air quality, the facilities of the building and the facilities of the ventilation is different in each building, VFA Solutions advices to contact us for a personal advice. Hereby, we can offer you the best solution for your specific air quality issues.

Common air quality issues in public buildings and our solutions
Polluted outdoor air
As most public buildings are located in urban areas and near highways it is a challenge to maintain sufficient ventilation without harming visitors and employees with air pollutants from outside. Prevent this from happening by purifying outdoor air before transporting it indoors and by recirculating and purifying the air in the room.
Lack of fresh air
In places where many people gather together, like public buildings, lack of fresh air can often significantly increase CO2 levels. The result is people feeling tired and hazy, causing headaches, irritated eyes and more. The only solution is taking out stuffy air and bringing in fresh air.
Polluted indoor air
Indoor pollution is often less harmful than outdoor pollution. However, sometimes the pollution source is located indoors. Think about printers, paper shredders or just people. In these cases, it is necessary to apply recirculation air purification..
Reduce maintenance costs
All businesses care about maintenance costs. All VFA Solutions products offer easy and low cost maintenance. The collector parts are easy to replace and are more economical than a comparable HEPA filter.
Reduce energy costs
One of the unique selling points of our technology is its very low pressure drop. Low pressure drop means less energy is consumed. Therefore, all VFA Solutions products are more energy efficient than conventional air filters. An additional advantage of a low pressure drop is the ability to clean larger volumes of air with a smaller device
