STOCKHOLM – September 26, 2017 – Among 12 different brands tested, Blueair Classic 405 has a “superior air purification capacity” according to Testfakta Research laboratory tests performed by independent accredited Intertek Testing & Certification and IBR Laboratories.

About the test

Testfakta Research conducted comparative laboratory tests of air purifiers with the purpose of comparing the performance of air purifiers sold on the British and Nordic markets. The laboratory tests were performed by Intertek Testing & Certification and IBR Laboratories in the UK. The sample was selected by Testfakta Research on the basis of models suitable for a medium-sized room. The capacity was tested according to test standard ANSI/AHAM AC1-2015, measuring the capacity to eliminate various types of particles (dust and pollen). The 12 different models were tested on capacity at 37dB and at max speed. They were also tested for ease of use and ozone emissions.
