Indoor air quality in a fitness facility is particularly important because of the proximity of patrons as well as their increased rate of respiration and perspiration. Discover how filters help stop The spread of infectious diseases.
Conditioning the air within fitness centers has shifted focus from temperature and energy regulation— to now being focused on airborne toxicology upon re-opening amid COVID-19. Securing HVAC operations in fitness centers is of particular concern since the primary activities here are intended to benefit cardiovascular health and involve heavy degrees of human respiration.
Fitness activities can propel infectious particulates throughout a workout floor, which then settle on the smooth metal surfaces of communal gym equipment. This drastically increases the chances of viral transmission.
If your facility incorporates a pool or spa, this further increases your indoor air quality challenges by introducing additional humidity and enhanced potential for mold, mildew and airborne contaminants that thrive in humid environments.
FG IAQ offers advanced airborne precautions. Our MERV 13-16 filters accommodate current HVAC systems, and partnered with portable air purification units, can be placed in high-traffic areas of a gym floor to achieve medical-class hygienic air quality.
Filtration Group IAQ and our partner company Purafil, Inc. have developed solutions for indoor containment and respiratory protection.
