AIR8 air cleaners have been included in the list of trusted air cleaners by Horeca Vlaanderen. The interest group for Flemish hotel and catering entrepreneurs submitted frequently asked questions about air treatment systems to the government. On the basis of this, an overview was drawn up with manufacturers who abide by certain rules for putting air purification systems on the market.
Controlled air cleaners
Ventilation has become a fixed value in the life of the hotel and catering industry operator. But the provisions of the Ministerial Decree of 27 September raised quite a few questions among the members of Horeca Flanders about ensuring good air quality. The interest group consulted the government for the answers, with the first result being this list of registered and verified air cleaners.
In the meantime, Horeca Flanders is also continuing to consult with the government to see what support can be offered for the investment in a ventilation system.
In June, Horeca Flanders already suggested per sector guidelines and protocols which clearly describes how a hospitality entrepreneur can prepare his or her business for a restart after the lockdown. An important part is the Ventilation action plan.
The Ministerial Decree on air quality in relation to corona states: "When the air quality standard exceeds the value of 900 ppm, the operator must have an action plan based on a risk analysis to ensure compensatory measures for ventilation and/or air disinfection and/or air filtration (...). When the value of 1,200 ppm is exceeded, the operator must provide an approved air disinfection and/or air filtration system that ensures an air quality equivalent to the air quality standard of 900 ppm.
