Hospital Grade Air Purifier
The AIR160 is based on existing air disinfection methods that are already being used to purify the air in hospital operating theatres.
For the first time, three successful, proven methods of air purification have been combined into a single, affordable, stand-alone device – The Air160 has Landed. The quality of the filtered – disinfected – ionized air is such as you might breathe high up in the mountains.
The Air 160 has combined three stages – 3M HAF (High Air Flow) Filtration, Philips UV-C disinfection and air Ionization
VIRUSES, bacteria, moulds and other microorganisms that are present in the air are rendered harmless and are removed from the air, together with VOC’s, pollen, pet dander, dust and odours. You will quickly notice how the quality of the air has improved, feel fitter and more comfortable. Your AIR 160 is the ideal tool to keep the air around you safe and healthy.
This unit can be hung up or you can purchase the stand.

Why choose the AIR 160?
The AIR160 is a compact, stand-alone system, immediately ready-for-use with simple installation and maintenance. Easy to service, stylish and effective; it’s the perfect air purifying system for so many applications and backed with a 2-year manufacturing warranty.
The AIR 160 is based on existing air disinfection methods that are already being used to purify the air in hospital operating theatres. The price point of this device makes purified air affordable and available for everyone.
An increasing number of micro-organisms can be found in the air, including viruses, bacteria, moulds and other pollutants, making our air less healthy to breathe. We are increasingly made aware of how dangerous these micro-organisms are human beings. Research indicates that the air quality in enclosed spaces, even our own homes, can be polluted.
Modern houses/workplaces are air-conditioned and much better insulated than they used to be, with the result that natural ventilation is steadily reduced. The quality of the air inside is therefore often poorer than we think causing –
Headaches, respiratory irritation, insomnia and allergies.
With an AIR160 device, you can purify the air up to 99.99% in areas up to 100 m3 circulating 50 m3 of air through the unit per hour. In the case of larger areas, you can install several devices.
Many ‘air-purifiers’ make sweeping claims that are cleverly worded to deceive. They claim to purify the air to 99.9%, but reading the fine print, they are just filter systems that take out the larger particles to this level.
How does it really work?
The Air16 employs three cutting edge technologies: the ventilator, filter and disinfection chamber.
Stage 1 – Filter
The purification process begins with a quiet, high-performance ventilator drawing the air through a hospital-grade 3M High Air Flow (HAF) filter into the disinfection chamber.
(Vectorthor Air160 air purifier 3M confirms that this hospital-grade filter provides twice the efficiency of standard filters, to attract, capture, and retain more particulate pollutants)
Stage 2 – Disinfection
The disinfection chamber sets the Air160 apart from other systems. Since they are so tiny, viruses and bacteria will pass through typical filter systems. However, in the Air160 disinfection chamber, the air is bombarded with UVC radiation from a high performance, 65-watt Philips UVC lamp. The ability of UVC light to destroy DNA (the cellular structure) of viruses, bacteria, moulds, fungi and other micro-organisms is universally documented. With a unique aluminium lining, the disinfection chamber reflects the UVC from all sides to better ensure the total destruction of all micro-organisms.
Stage 3 – Purification
The air is then finally ionized, with 8.5 million negative ions per cubic metre to provide pure, fresh, odourless air.
Q: Is the Air160 suitable for viruses such as Flu or COVID-19 Coronavirus?
A: Yes, the 3 Step 3M filter, UV Disinfection & Purification process will help to fight airborne viruses in your home or workplace.
Q: What can be the Health effects of poor air quality?
A: Allergic and asthmatic symptoms of • Lung cancer • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and chronic respiratory problems. • Respiratory Diseases • Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) – due to the accumulation of particulate matter in the lungs. • Odour and irritation – ‘sick building syndrome’.

Q: What is the warranty period of the AIR 160?
A: 2 years
Q: What are some of the uses for an Air160?
A: The Air160 is suitable for almost any application where you want to purify the air you are breathing. In areas where many people come together, an increase in the risk of infection through the air is correspondingly higher. For example –
Office areas, Children’s day-care centres, Classrooms, Old people’s homes, Family doctors, Dentists surgeries, Schools, Day-care centres, Nursing homes, Hotels, Copying areas, Veterinaries, Animal shelters, Kennels, Hobby rooms, Computer rooms, Playrooms, Holiday homes, Caravans, Boats, Fitness areas, Smoking areas, Restaurants, Hairdressers, Beauty parlours, Public toilets, Pubs, Meeting rooms, Dressing rooms – the list is endless (In the case of larger areas, you can install several devices).
Q: What are the advantages of the AIR 160?
A: Disinfects and purifies the air up to 90% in a single pass (2 hours) and 99.99% after 24 hours. • Eliminates micro-organisms that are present in the air • Provides protection against diseases • Improves the quality of the air and promotes a comfortable feeling • Purifies the air in enclosed areas • Has a positive effect on your health • Strengthens the resistance of the body against diseases • Inhalation allergies are reduced or disappear • Anxiety and depression can be reduced, or disappear.
The AIR 160 is effective against • Viruses • Bacteria • Moulds • House-dust mites • Dust and particulates • Pollen • Cigarette smoke • Harmful gases • Odour
Q: Is the Air160 suitable for removing pet dander and pet odours?
A: A 3M filter is ideal to help remove larger particles such as dust, pollen, mould spores and pet dander from the air passing through the filter. The antimicrobial agent helps inhibit the growth of mould and mildew on the filter media.
More and more building owners and equipment manufacturers are recognizing the need for efficient, economical air filtration to improve equipment performance and reliability, and to protect equipment from the damaging effects of dirt and dust.
The problem with certain kinds of conventional filters, however, is that – depending on the filter type – they can have high initial pressure or can block too much airflow as particles become trapped in the filter. The end result is that airflow through the equipment can be severely restricted. To maintain the required airflow, the filters may require frequent replacement, and/or the equipment may require frequent cleaning or other maintenance, depending upon the application conditions.
