Essential standards in air purification
In France and Europe, air treatment with air purifiers is a novelty on the market, which seeks to structure itself as best it can. Today, standards are gradually emerging and are complementing each other to help us see things more clearly. Indeed, respecting them is a guarantee of quality for professional air purifiers, which must meet more exacting criteria than those intended for the general public. These standards define the selection criteria when it comes time to install an air purifier, and thus allow a better visibility on the effectiveness of the different devices in air treatment. The JVD team has gathered for you the crucial standards to be met by a professional air purifier.
