All Geniox materials and components are always hygiene friendly, third-party certified by VDI 6022-1. Also, the entire Geniox range of modular air handling units, which is the company’s major range, can be configured as a VDI 6022-1 certified unit using the manufacturer’s selection software (SystemairCAD). VDI audits are performed by an authorised third-party laboratory in Germany.
Evgeny Gorelkov, Product Area Director AHU at Systemair, said: “The goal of a correctly operated and maintained air handling unit is to enable a good, healthy indoor climate. This improves our well-being, reduces sickness levels and helps us perform better at work, leisure, and in school. Today, more than ever, indoor air quality is essential. As a result, Systemair believes that all AHUs should be hygiene-friendly at minimum. Hygienic should become more standard, not only for hospitals and clean rooms but also for general ventilation applications.”
One of the focus points of VDI 6022-1 is easy cleanability. The air handling unit design should make it possible for the operator to clean all parts of the unit. It is, for example, required that all surfaces are smooth and that there are no sharp edges or shapes where dirt can accumulate. This is just one of many areas which make Systemair Geniox units hygienic by design.
