So just what is Hospital-Grade True HEPA Filtration?
Ausclimate’s Winix range are specifically designed for Australia, giving you the unique combination of superior 'PlasmaWave' air-purification technology and certified H13 Hospital-grade true HEPA filtration. This industry-leading technology & filtration standard effectively remove a broad range of odours, allergens & other airborne pollutants including; dust, smoke, pollen, pet dander, mould, bacteria, viruses and VOCs.
Why is Hospital Grade HEPA so important?
Ausclimate’s Winix air purifier range is certified as meeting the True HEPA Filter H13 certification - Australian Standard (AS 4260-1997)¹. This means that they have a confirmed H13 level of purification, removing 99.97% (minimum efficiency) of airborne pollutants such as viruses, bacteria & allergens as small as 0.3 microns (0.3 microns is far smaller than dust, dust mites, mould spores, pollens, bacteria and even pet dander!). This is the industry standard that defines whether an air purifier is suitable for use in hospital environments and medical applications including; clean-rooms, pharmaceutical manufacturing and any environment where clean/sterile conditions are required.
Not all HEPA filters are equal
The unfortunate truth is that many suppliers make the claim of having 'HEPA filters', however, some of these are in reality not actually 'H13 Hospital-grade true HEPA' filtration and upon testing, fail to filter 99.97% at 0.3 microns of particles from the air. As a responsible Australian supplier of quality air purifiers, proof of independent testing is very important to us, as it should be for all customers doing their research.
Ausclimate's Winix air purifier range proudly meets the Australian Standards, European Standards, as well as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Standards and have the proof to back it up.¹
Surpassing Australian HEPA Filter Standards
While Ausclimate's Winix air purifier range meets these industry standards, in some ways our range actually surpasses them. Independent Australian tests¹ performed by Assured Equipment Services showed that at 0.3 microns, our filters actually surpassed the required efficiency level of 99.97%. Then as we get below the 99.97% efficiency rating, the filters can actually capture pollutants much smaller than the required 0.3 micron Standard (i.e. smoke and other tiny particles).
