    AirMaster® clears the air

    Desso AirMaster® Carpet Tile

    Desso AirMaster® is a carpet tile which marries great innovation and performance with strong design to boost health and wellbeing in offices, schools, healthcare environments and other public buildings. Its patented technology has been proven to reduce the concentration of fine dust in the air four times more effectively than regular carpets and eight times more effectively than hard floors. The structured loop pile carpet tile is available in 18 block and six combination colours as standard.

    Innovation to improve people’s health and wellbeing

    Today, most people spend around 90% of their time indoors. This makes it imperative that we create healthy interiors. Did you know that the average fulltime employee spends as much as 1880 hours a year (over 21% of his/her time) in the office environment? It is therefore obvious that the indoor air quality at work has a major effect on the health and wellness of employees. Improving indoor air quality, can have an immediate, positive and tangible impact on sickness absenteeism and lead to a boost in productivity.

    Proven effectiveness in clearing the air

    To prove the superior dust capturing function of DESSO AirMaster®, tests are performed in the laboratory of the independent German test institute GUI, which specialises in the analysis of indoor and outdoor air quality. During the tests, a specific amount of fine dust is blown into three room simulations with different flooring solutions (smooth floor, standard loop pile carpet and DESSO AirMaster®).


    DESSO AirMaster® is 8 times more effective in capturing and retaining fine dust than smooth flooring solutions (PM10) and 4 times more effective than standard carpet solutions (PM10).
