Danby Appliances is teaming up with a Waterloo-based PPE manufacturer the Canadian Shield to sell a line of new air purifiers.
Four different air purifier models will be available for sale. A release from The Canadian Shield said each model is equipped with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters that capture 99.97 per cent of airborne dust, allergens, smoke and pollen.
The Canadian Shield CEO Jeremy Hedges, says as the highly transmissible Omicron variant continues to fuel record-high case counts, it is critical that we use all tools and resources at our disposal to protect Canadians and reduce the overall impact on our economy, school systems and communities.
A news release said that when used properly, Health Canada advises that air purifiers can help reduce the amount of some viruses in the air, providing an additional layer of protection against COVID-19. By capturing small particles within the air, HEPA filters can help reduce concentration of COVID and other viruses in the air.
“Danby Appliances is pleased to be working with an innovative partner like The Canadian Shield to supply much-needed air purifiers to improve air quality in schools and workplaces. Be it pollution or viral concerns, we all benefit from access to the best indoor air quality possible,” says Jim Estill, CEO of Danby Appliances, in the release.
