How clearing the air makes for a happier work environment.

When you are a custom furniture maker, you come to accept the dust that comes with the territory. That said, Aaron Pahmier and Bladon Conner of Aaron Bladon, Ltd. are concerned about the daily effect of breathing in dust and other potentially harmful particles over time. Sounds like a job for the new Blueair Pro XL. Three times the fan power and highly efficient to its core, the new Pro line is a revelation in air purification. Optimized for professional performance on an epic scale, the Pro XL brings next-gen design and innovation to Aaron and Bladon’s ongoing battle against what they have come to call “sawdust nose.”

Pro XL takes on wood dust like a pro.

As creators of bespoke, signature pieces in materials that range from steel to walnut to leather and brass, Aaron and Bladon take what they breathe in as seriously as what they create. Their existing awareness of indoor air quality made them even more excited to see the difference the professional-strength performance of the Blueair Pro XL could make in their quality of life at work. Some of the Blueair team made a visit to Aaron and Bladon’s studio to help them find the best place possible for the Pro XL to have a maximum impact on air quality. Now standing tall between their office space and their furniture design studio the XL is ready to take on dust like a pro.

“On any given day there is a lot of particulate floating around, more some days than others depending on the project. Knowing that our Pro XL is on the job helps us breathe easier.”

Putting professional performance to the test.

With patented HEPASilent® technology and its contemporary design, the Blueair Pro line (M, L, XL) sets a new standard in premium air purifiers. Designed for spaces up to 1,180 sq ft (110 m2), the Blueair Pro XL quickly and efficiently eliminates dust particles, chemical allergens, and even viruses cleaning the indoor air up to five times per hour.

After doing an initial particle count we will return to Aaron Bladon in a few months to do a follow up count. The initial readings were unsettling for Aaron and Bladon but they also confirmed that they are breathing in as much dust as they feared. The good news is that the Pro XL delivers five complete air exchanges per hour. After just one cycle (12 minutes), the particle count in their office had been reduced by approximately 25%.

The dangers of wood dust.

According to OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration): “Wood dust becomes a potential health problem when wood particles from processes such as sanding and cutting become airborne. Breathing these particles may cause allergic respiratory symptoms, mucosal and non-allergic respiratory symptoms, and even cancer. The extent of these hazards and the associated wood types have not been clearly established.”
