Panasonic Marketing Middle East & Africa (PMMAF) has launched a set of indoor air quality (IAQ) products, including a range of air purifiers for the region, to address increased respiratory problems.
The air purifiers, Panasonic said during an event to introduce the products, are embedded with a HEPA composite filter, deodoriser, dust catcher, 3D circulation car flow and nanoe purification, along with indicators and sensors to purify the indoor air quality. Save for one model – F-PXL45M – the rest of the three models have humidifying function, which prevent the surroundings from dryness by creating moisture in the air, the company said.
The F-VXL95, claimed Panasonic, has the biggest air purifier with humidifier in the Middle East. It can cover an area of up to 71 m2 and, is said to be equipped with nano-fibre filter, which can entrap smaller air pollutants. The company also introduced a “Sandstorm mode” feature, keeping in mind the sandstorms in the region. The feature is available in the F-VXL95 and F-VK655 models, with an expected purification applicable area from 30 m2 to 71 m2, added the announcement.
During the event, Panasonic also introduced its Q Fan, named after the Japanese word for ‘ball’ and is shaped accordingly. Panasonic said the fan is a turbo-powered machine, which blows out ‘high pressure jet-air flow’, which is seven times more than the air that it sucks in through its specially designed channels.
Speaking during the launch, Kai, Director of Panasonic Eco Solutions Hong Kong, said: “The time we spend indoors may be more detrimental to our health than we realise, especially here in the Middle East where we are in our offices or apartments for major part of our day. Panasonic realises this and continues to make better use of the latest technology to ensure that the pollutant levels of indoor air may be controlled.”
