15th of October 2010

As part of our special report, an overview of air freshening technology.

Cleans the air

Cleanaer is a patented air treatment solution by Atrium Innovation that combines an air purifier and fragrancer to clean and sanitise the air, remove odours, smoke, allergens and airborne germs.
The units are suitable for use in offices, hotel rooms and corridors. Cleanaer Anti-Viral Tea Tree Oil cartridges are claimed to kill 99.99 per cent of flu viruses on contact. Cartridges are also available in several  ambient fragrances and with a fragrance-free option for allergy-sufferers.

The 24 cm high battery-operated device is designed to be attached to a wall and operates for 24 hours a day. It does not release ozone and removes particles from the air using patented particle-clearance technology.

Continuous control

Vectair Systems has added some new V-Air fragrances for its V-Air odour control system - developed to work continuously for up to 60 days in an environmentally responsible way.
This is possible thanks to new advanced wick-based technology instead of a gel. And V-Air operates without the use of batteries, harmful propellants or VOCs.

The new fragrances are Linen, Ice Cool, Summer Rain and Toujours. Cartridge refills are recyclable and fit any dispensers.

Comes with fan

The Even Plus air freshener from Proandre works via a fan which distributes perfume continuously through a porous membrane, preventing premature evaporation of the content and possibly of the fragrance.

The unit is powered by one alkaline battery and intensity of fragrance can be adjusted using the fan, which has three functioning modes. Effective in spaces up to 80 square metres, the system is said to be particularly suitable for the hotel industry, offices and changing rooms because no spray is used.

Also from Proandre, the Neo Breeze Aerosol 250 ml air freshener works with two batteries and is totally programmable in terms of spray interval. It can be used in spaces between 25 and 60 square metres, and comes with a choice of fragrances.

Autumn fragrances

Fresh6 fragrances, which are the latest additions to Steiner's air freshener range, have been formulated to bring a breath of autumn to washrooms, waiting rooms and reception areas.
Different fragrances are designed to bring different moods to the area they are used in - some create an upmarket impression, others give the perception of freshness.

Several dispensers are available, including the new RICO MK2 or the FIFO, which operates without a battery. Both offer various options.

Switches automatically

Rubbermaid has developed the Microburst Duet System which automatically switches between two complementary fragrances loaded into the dispenser. Flexible programming options enable the facilities provider to select which fragrance will spray when, allowing the fragrances to be alternated at pre-determined intervals. This helps to keep the scent immediately noticeable to washroom users while reinforcing washroom cleanliness standards.

The highly concentrated formulation is claimed to provide three times more fragrance and odour neutraliser than standard refills, allowing one refill to last up to 180 days and replace three standard refills.
