While the time we spent indoors during these winter months, when we experienced the pandemic process, our ventilation time in our environment was shortened due to the cooling of the weather.



We do not know anymore that the quality of the air we breathe is of great importance for our health. Therefore, the level of air quality in offices where working people spend the most time has become more prominent. Burak Yakupoğlu, Chairman of Froumann Board, said that the air quality in working environments has serious effects on human health, unhealthy air environment affects brain functions and decreases employee productivity. “As employee productivity is a factor that directly affects the success of companies, the air quality in working environments must be kept at the values ​​set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),” he said. Yakupoğlu also stated that viruses spread much faster among office workers due to poor quality ambient air.

While the time we spent indoors during these winter months, when we experienced the pandemic process, our ventilation time in our environment was shortened due to the cooling of the weather. We do not know anymore that the quality of the air we breathe is of great importance for our health. Studies show that airborne pollutants smaller than 2,5 microns in size affect people's cognitive functions in the long term and accelerate memory loss and Alzheimer's diseases. For this reason, the level of air quality in offices where working people spend the most time has become more prominent. Froumann Chairman of the Board Burak Yakupoğlu said that the air quality in working environments has serious effects on human health and that the unhealthy air environment reduces employee productivity. “As employee productivity is a factor that directly affects the success of companies, the air quality in office environments must be kept at the values ​​set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),” he said. Yakupoğlu stated that viruses spread much faster among office workers due to the poor quality ambient air. Yakupoğlu gave the following information:

PM 2,5, on which air quality depends, alters brain structure and accelerates memory loss.

“Employees spend most of their time in offices during the day. For this reason, it is important that the offices are designed in the healthiest way for employees in every aspect. But the most important issue is the quality of the air in the working environment, how healthy it is. Scientific researches indicate that if the amount of PM 2,5 particles to which air quality is dependent is high, exposure to this changes the brain structure in the long term and accelerates memory loss. In the short term, he emphasizes that the poor quality air environment in the office environment has effects on people such as headache, nausea, weakness, loss of concentration, reluctance and feeling constantly tired.

Stating that in a recent study published in the Journal of Environmental Health Perspectives, a direct relationship was found between air quality and mental functions, Yakupoğlu said, “According to Joseph Allen and his team of Harvard University, people in buildings with good ventilation and less carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds 61 percent of the activities, the ability to use information appropriately for its purpose was 172-299 percent, and the ability to make strategies was 183-288 percent ”.

In the scientific study published in Brain, one of the most prestigious academic journals in the field of neuroscience, scientists studied 73 women aged 87 to 998 years and regularly gave them learning and memory tests. They matched the environmental protection agency's air pollution data with the women's residential addresses. At the end of this study, which lasted more than 11 years, it was found that the more women were exposed to PM 2,5, a small particulate matter that easily penetrates the lungs and bloodstream, the lower their scores on cognitive tests. “Shared his knowledge.

Providing safe breathing space is now easy and effortless

Burak Yakupoğlu stated that it is now possible to breathe the quality air safely by creating a "safe breathing space" wherever Froumann, which is the "first in the world" with its feature of filtering the air by pulling it from the breathing level, for office, home and public spaces with this feature of the devices they have developed. Emphasizing that there is hope, he gave the following information:

“You can safely breathe in high quality air by creating a“ safe breathing space ”with Froumann Professional Air Purification devices, which stand out with their modern designs as well as offering comfortable use with their ability to be moved between rooms. Froumann is the first brand to prove with university tests that it filters 19 percent of SARS CoV-2 virus with tests performed at İnönü University Turgut Özal Medical Center Molecular Microbiology Laboratory, which is the COVID-99 Diagnostic Laboratory Authorized by the Turkish Ministry of Health. It can filter all pollutants, including viruses, that can remain suspended in indoor air for a long time.

We have five different types of devices, namely N100 SDS, N90 SDS, N100, N90, N80, that can be used in different sized spaces. We provide the opportunity to filter the air in all indoor environments starting from 100 square meters up to 300 square meters. From this point of view, the importance of Froumann for public spaces such as schools, hospitals and post offices becomes even more evident.
