Daikin awarded ‘Seal of Approval’ from AFSA

We have never been as aware about allergens, bacteria, pollen, and dust particles than right now, and with good reason. Many suffer from a blocked nose, red, watery eyes, and sneezing, but it shouldn’t have to be that way.

Air purifiers minimise asthma and allergy symptoms by removing dust particles and pollen from the air, while keeping occupants healthy by filtering out airborne bacteria and viruses – as confirmed by the Allergy Foundation South Africa (AFSA) for Daikin.

We are spending more and more time indoors and before the next pollen-rich season comes around, investing in your comfort and health should be your number one concern after the year(s) we’ve all experienced of late.

AFSA has conducted and approved tests on the Daikin air purifier and has given the product their seal of approval. AFSA strives to save lives, to enhance the quality of life and to reduce the cost of healthcare in South Africans suffering from allergic disorders and primary immune deficiencies.

When the Seal of approval appears on a product, you know the product has been scientifically tested to prove it is efficient at reducing or removing allergens from the environment or the products have significantly reduced allergen or chemical content.

In addition, according to tests performed in the laboratories of the Institut Pasteur de Lille, Daikin’s air purifiers eliminate more than 99.98% the human coronavirus HCoV-229E in 2.5 minutes*. This virus is of the same family as SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus behind the Covid-19 pandemic. The units have also been evaluated as 99.93% effective against the H1N1 virus – causing the common flu – in 2.5 minutes*. This means an additional measure in the fight against respiratory diseases exists. Daikin’s compact plug-and-play purifiers, whose effectiveness is achieved through a combination of the high performance electrostatic HEPA filter, which traps the virus, followed by an intense exposure to Daikin’s patented Flash Streamer technology, which eliminates the virus, can strongly contribute to reducing the risk of respiratory virus transmission.

Ensuring clean air in today’s environment is more important than even and further a great gesture no matter if serving home, office, or a doctor’s waiting room.
