How to protect air conditioning systems from "sick building syndrome"

Sick Building Syndrome (from the English Sick Building Syndrome (SBS)) — this is a condition in which people in a building suffer from symptoms of illness or become infected with chronic diseases from the building in which they work or live (ist. Wikipedia).

As you know, air conditioning systems can cause problems with the formation and transmission of microbes. Indoor air quality can become 10 times more polluted than fresh air due to mold, fungi and odor-causing bacteria in heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.Such microbes also contribute to the emergence of the "sick building" syndrome by releasing harmful organic compounds into the internal volume, such as spores, dead cells and other harmful organic compounds.

Fungus and mold also cause damage to insulation materials.As in the world, such problems exist in our country and have sad consequences. Today, Armacell products offer ideal solutions for a wide range of applications as a precautionary measure against health risks.Sanprace company recommends the ideal solution for insulation of ventilation and air conditioning equipment in hospitals - professional rubber insulation AF/ARMAFLEX

AF/Armaflex thermal insulation is a flexible insulating material manufactured using MICROBAN® technology, which is designed against harmful microscopic organisms.

When these harmful microbes come into contact with the insulation surface, the MICROBAN® protection passes through the cell wall of the microorganism and stops vital activity. Since MICROBAN® protection is integrated into AF/Armaflex during production, it does not lose its effectiveness over time.

Armaflex AF rubber insulation (AF/Armaflex) is a strong flexible insulation that, due to its high resistance to vapor diffusion and low thermal conductivity, provides long-term protection against condensation. The unique microcellular structure of the Armaflex AF material ensures a long service life and ease of installation, which saves additional money and time. 

This gives the AF/Armaflex Class the advantage of providing more effective protection against the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi, especially when isolating ventilation and air conditioning equipment of facilities such as schools, hospitals, nursing homes, offices, airports, pharmacies and food stores, which makes it an ideal solution.
