MANN+HUMMEL India, a subsidiary of the Germany based MANN+HUMMEL Group, announced that its ‘OurAir’ air quality monitors and digital platform, has received accreditation by RESET, the world’s first sensor-based and performance-driven building standard and certification program, which aims to improve indoor environments and occupant health on a global scale.
OurAir, which has recently been launched in India, is a brand of the MANN+HUMMEL Group that offers indoor air quality solutions that combine MANN+HUMMEL’s 77 years of filtration expertise with cutting-edge digital innovation. These solutions are based on smart devices, where air quality monitors, filters, purification and ventilation systems, integrate seamlessly with the OurAir digital platform. With OurAir solutions, building owners, facility managers and tenants can “know, improve and manage” the air quality in commercial buildings.
Air pollution is the fourth greatest cause of death worldwide, with 92% of the world’s population breathing air deemed unsafe by the World Health Organization. But while outside air pollution grabs most of the headlines, the air we breathe inside can be much more harmful. The level of air pollution indoors can be between two and five times the pollution found outdoors. And as employees spend around 90% of their time indoors, those places that feel safest may not be as healthy as they seem. MANN+HUMMEL has, thus, designed OurAir to transform indoor spaces into the clean and healthy environments that they should be.
"RESET is the only building standard in the world to focus on the foundational details of what makes building systems work. There is a great emphasis on the quality of source data and hardware, through to actual performance metrics, which are measured each and every day. As a brand, OurAir's vision and values are very much aligned with RESET's mission." added Randhawa.
