‘Quiet Mark’ certification for air purifiers

Indoor climate control specialist, Daikin, has gained Quiet Mark of approval for two of its 'innovative' air purification systems.

Models MCK55W and MC55VB, which the company says effectively filter dust, pollen, allergens and other particles to improve indoor air quality, have been rigorously tested by Quiet Mark experts, and ‘found to be among the quietest air purifiers on the market’.

Dakin said: “Research by the World Health Organization shows the detrimental impact that environmental noise pollution has on mental and physical health. In a post-pandemic world, with people spending increased time indoors, it has become ever more important to ensure that our internal environment is both healthy and peaceful.”

It added: “Excess noise can increase stress levels, while impacting on sleep patterns, productivity, and morale. It has also been linked to depression, anxiety, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease resulting from a distressed reaction to excessive and unwanted sound disturbance. So, whilst it’s imperative to ensure a supply of clean, fresh air into our internal environment, it’s also important that climate management systems operate as quietly possible to support a vital health balance.”

Daikin says it ‘strives to deliver appliances that are compact, effective, and quiet’. Its air purifiers reportedly eliminate 99.98% of the human coronavirus, HCoV-229E in 2.5 minutes. This virus is of the same family as SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind the COVID-19 pandemic. The units are also said to be 99.93% effective against the H1N1 virus that causes common flu.
