Breathe Easy with ScentAir's ION NPBI™ Systems: Your Solution to Sick Building Syndrome

Indoor air quality has become a significant concern in recent years, especially with the rise of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). As we spend more time indoors, the air we breathe can directly impact our health and well-being. That's why exploring innovative ways to protect occupants from disease, mold, bacteria and allergens is crucial. 

ScentAir's ION Auto-Cleaning, Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI™) systems are game-changers in conquering SBS. This advanced technology actively purifies the air continuously eliminating pathogens and reducing particles. NPBI reduces 99.8% of Sars-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, without producing any harmful byproducts. 

Let’s explore SBS and discover how ScentAir's ION NPBI products can create a healthier indoor environment.

The Problem: What is Sick Building Syndrome? 

SBS is used to describe health-related effects of occupants linked directly to time spent in a specific building. 

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a wide range of symptoms are often attributed to SBS such as headache, nausea, skin irritation, cough, sore eyes or throat, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, allergies, and cold and flu-like symptoms. 

The impact of SBS and its often-vague symptoms can be a significant financial burden for businesses in the form of reduced work efficiency, absenteeism and increased healthcare cost.  

The Solution: ION Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI™) Systems

ScentAir's ION NPBI Systems are cutting-edge solutions that ensure the air in buildings is not only fresh but safe. They work continuously to clean the air from harmful viruses, bacteria, molds, and allergens. NPBI has been proven to reduce 99.8% of the Sars-CoV-2 virus, the virus that causes COVID-19, without any harmful byproducts.

Contaminants from outside pollutants such as vehicle exhaust and indoor pollutants from volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in upholstery, adhesives, manufactured wood products, etc, are all reduced by NPBI technology. 

Buildings equipped with NPBI systems not only deliver an enhanced indoor experience by eliminating unpleasant odors but also significantly reduce airborne particles such as smoke, pollen, dust and dander. These particles are proven to trigger respiratory discomfort and allergies, so their reduction contributes directly to a healthier environment.

How do ION NPBI Systems work?

The ION Target, Pure and Defend use patented NPBI technology to safely introduce new ions into your indoor airstream using the airflow in your existing ventilation system. 

The NPBI system releases ions that latch onto air pollutants like viruses, bacteria, mold, and allergens. Once attached, the ions neutralize the harmful particles, rendering them inactive and decreasing their ability to spread and cause harm.

It not only eliminates contaminants but also addresses odors. The ions break down odor molecules, resulting in fresher air.
