RetailIndoor Air Quality (IAQ) has become an increasingly important topic over the last decade resulting in a new European norm, EN 13779, ventilation for non-residential buildings.

The standard focuses on attaining a comfortable and healthy environment inside buildings using ventilation systems with affordable running costs. It specifies the required performance of the filtering system in a ventilation system to achieve good quality levels for indoor air (IAQ) starting from the quality of outdoor air.

New products such as anti-bacterial pocket filters and rigid filters that do not shed collected contaminants back into the airstream are particularly suited to this application.
