Why Air Filtration Units Are Essential for Shelters & Other Shared Spaces

Homeless shelters, women’s shelters, auxiliary rooms at churches, and similar facilities provide an essential service by helping to protect some of the most vulnerable individuals in our community. As such, it’s important for these spaces to be comfortable, safe, and healthy, especially regarding to air quality. To mitigate airborne transmission of allergens, dust, viruses, and more in these high-risk areas, we offer HEPA air filtration units that will meet your indoor air quality needs.

Take the Time to Re-Examine Your Shelter or Facility

Homeless shelters and other congregate settings pose a higher risk of potentially spreading airborne particles and viruses such as COVID-19, which means you should take the necessary steps to maintain a healthy environment. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shared guidance to help homeless service providers re-examine their facility and make sure it’s properly equipped to provide acceptable indoor air quality.

One of the CDC’s main facility considerations is the use of “portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) fan/filtration systems to help enhance air cleaning.” HEPA systems have the capability to capture and remove potentially harmful airborne particles, as well as discharge clean air that can dilute contaminants.

Do you believe your homeless shelter or facility could use a HEPA filtration system? Consider the XJ-2 HEPA Air Cleaner or the PM400 MiracleAir® HEPA Air Cleaner, two high-performance air filtration units that we specialize in.

The XJ-2: An Adaptable & Super Portable HEPA Filtration Unit

XJ 2 medical facility filtration unitThe XJ-2 is a medical-grade HEPA air cleaner that is suitable for everything from homeless shelters to airborne infection isolation rooms and hospitals. They have even been using XJ-2 units on ships and submarines during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a highly portable, self-contained unit designed to minimize floor space utilization, be adaptable to your air filtration needs, and provide essential airflow and pressure differential for tough duty. Here are some of its key features:

  • Quiet
  • Affordable
  • Portable
  • Compact
  • Fast and Flexible Installation

In addition, the XJ-2 has been independently lab tested in its entirety to be 99.999% efficient on 0.3 micron particles, which is the most penetrating particle size. The unit’s airflow is infinitely adjustable up to 1,000 CFM, and it ships fully assembled and ready for roll-in installation. This is a top choice for high-risk areas and can turn an ordinary room into a negative pressure room if needed.

The PM400: A Highly Effective Air Sanitizer & Odor-Eliminator

PM 400 portable air cleaner with Intertek markingSimilar to the XJ-2, the PM400 also enhances indoor air quality by providing true medical-grade HEPA filtration that cleans and sanitizes the air by trapping pollutants, allergens, dust, and other particles. The unit’s true HEPA filter is 99.97% efficient on 0.3 microns within 82 sq. ft. of filtration area. Some of the key features include:

  • Powerful odor control capabilities utilizing 15 lbs. of activated charcoal (optional)
  • Optimal airflow in all conditions with the infinitely variable speed motor/blower
  • Completely portable and easy to move with included casters
  • Quiet, smooth operation with a high-performance 7-blade motorized impeller

For the freshest-smelling, cleanest, and most breathable air, the PM400 will get the job done. It is not only affordable and lightweight at 49 lbs., but one of the most effective odor-eliminators on the market.
