Ionizers that purify the air will soon start working in building air handling units. Positive and negative ions will be blown onto the rental areas along with fresh air. Air ionization involves the release of ions that have the ability to bind around microparticles (e.g. viruses, bacteria, molds). When the ion adheres to the surface of the virus, a chemical reaction occurs, as a result of which the positive and negative ions form a hydroxyl radical on the surface of the virus, which has the ability to “pull” the hydrogen atom out of the protein. In this way, the protein is destroyed, which prevents the virus from penetrating deep into human cells.
Air ionizers have a huge impact on air quality because:
• remove viruses from the air, which is an important preventive measure in the fight against coronavirus,
• remove PM 2.5 and PM 10 dust and other harmful pollutants that can cause respiratory failure,
• remove allergens from the air that weaken the immune system,
• remove moulds and fungi from the air, which can cause breathing difficulties,
• restore the ionic balance in the air, ensuring a better mood.
All buildings in Olivia, including the 180-metre-high Olivia Star, have tilt windows. It is a unique solution on a global scale, thanks to which the employees of our offices have constant access to fresh air.
Fresh air has a positive effect on our comfort and safety. We recommend that you regularly ventilate your offices, at least once every 2-3 hours. When ventilating, don’t forget about the environment and remember to turn off the air conditioning. In most cases, building systems will do this for us – after detecting a tilted window, they will automatically block the operation of the devices.
The operation and operation of ventilation and air conditioning systems in Olivia meet the highest standards and guidelines of the REHVA federation (Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Associations). REHVA is an international organization that promotes guaranteeing building users a high air quality and a healthy and comfortable living and working environment.
The ventilation systems in Olivia’s buildings operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We supply more than 2 times more fresh air than required by current regulations.
In Olivia, we use only filters from reputable manufacturers. All of them have proven filtration efficiency in their class, including m.in. in the F7 class.
We constantly monitor and maintain high air quality in Olivia’s buildings (from the moment it is collected from the outside to the moment it is distributed inside).
We use CO2 sensors that smoothly control the inflow of fresh air, increasing the comfort of office use. The more people in the room are ventilated, so that the air is exchanged very quickly. The solution optimizes energy consumption, depending on the type and area of the building and the number of employees staying in it.
In the new reality, the so-called post-COVID, we decided to purchase additional sensors measuring the content of particulate matter and volatile organic compounds suspended in the air.
