Intent: To provide additional outdoor air ventilation to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and promote occupant comfort, well-being and productivity.
American’s spend approx. 90% of their time indoors, where concentrations of pollutants are much higher.
Thousands of chemicals and biological pollutants are found indoors, many of which are known to have significant health impacts.
Risks include asthma, cancer and reproductive and developmental problems.
Increasing ventilation improves the indoor air quality and directly benefits occupants’ health and well-being.
9to5 Seating’s Strategy:
9to5 Seating has mechanically increased outdoor air ventilation rates by 30%.
Over & Above:
9to5 Seating's factory floor, the majority of their building footprint, surprisingly uses natural ventilation, which remains cool, even during mid-summer months where temperatures often reach 90+ degrees.
