National cross-country ski teams look to gain every advantage they can to cross the finish line first—everything from the latest advances in sports science, emerging eating trends involving superfoods, cryogenic recovery, cutting-edge training techniques and innovative equipment. But air purifiers?
I came across this interesting article on AeraMax Air Purifier's site on how the Finnish Cross Country Ski Team utilizes AeraMax Air Purifiers. Here at WRIGLEY'S, we not only sell AeraMax Air Purifiers, we are firm believers in their effectiveness. We have a large wall unit installed in our conference room and are very impressed with it's ability to capture viruses, bacteria, mold spores, dust mites and allergans. Because every member of our staff is essential to the success of our daily operations, we need to keep everyone HEALTHY!
Getting back to the Finnish Ski Team: The team has a rolling maintenance center (a specially-equipped large RV vehicle) that it takes to multi-day meets to service skis and provide a gathering place for the athletes. As part of the maintenance of the skis, technicians use a variety of waxes with fluorinated compounds to make the skis slicker, depending on terrain and conditions. So, during the course of a meet, skis might get different coatings applied in the enclosed maintenance workshop environment—and that’s a problem. The technicians breathing in the fumes and airborne particles from the waxes were being exposed to PFCs that can lead to cardiovascular disease, liver damage and even cancer.
So, the Finnish team sought to make their mobile maintenance center healthier for both the technicians and the skiers, who use the RV to rest and relax before and after races. To this end, the RV was outfitted with AeraMax Professional III air purifiers, with two units in the service area, where most airborne contaminants lurk, and one in the skiers’ lounge area. The result: cleaner, fresher air, because AeraMax Professional air purifiers remove up to 99.97 percent of airborne pollutants from enclosed rooms.
So, can AeraMax Professional make the Finnish finish faster? Debatable. But it surely can make the team from Finland healthier. And that might mean an edge during competition. For business owners, keeping your staff healthy means keeping your business running smoothly. We sell AeraMax Air Purifiers to a variety of businesses, especially those who come into daily contact with the public: medical and dental offices, daycare centers, health clubs, etc. Give us a call and we can help yuu select the ideal air purifier for your facility size
