Beauty Salon Air Cleaning Solutions

Commercial Air Filtration helps nail salons and bars to ensure compliance with the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines, and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Work Exposure Limits (WELs). We do this through our expertise, and by working only with the leading manufacturers of air filtration systems.

Investing in the right kind of air filtration system is crucial because nail salons work with many of the same toxic chemicals that are found in science laboratories. Over time and in sufficient quantities, these chemicals can cause symptoms ranging from headaches and nausea to cancer, neurological damage and birth defects. This is why we recommend exactly the same systems as we supply to NHS hospitals and research laboratories but in a smaller (and cheaper) form factor.

Reducing your exposure to the chemicals and particles found in nail salons is not only important for your legal compliance, but it is also important for your business. The best and most profitable nail salons go beyond compliance, because cleaner, safer and healthier nail salons attract more customers, retain the best workers and promotes well-being.

Chemical, Odour & Particle Pollution in Nail Salons

Our Swiss-made air filtration systems are used by leading beauty salons worldwide. Each system is individually tested and certified and guaranteed to capture even the smallest pollutants. By using the highest quality activated carbon media, we can help you to capture an incredible range of chemicals and odours and make a significant difference to the air you and your customers breathe. Scientists, who work with the same chemicals as you use our systems, so why not you too?
