FitAir Halo HEPA Air Purifier and Virus Killer
FitAir’s® Halo Ionic Air Purifier with HEPA filter; for health and well-breathing at home and work.
Halo has a sleek, pearl-white design with a rounded bottom. Featuring elegant soft-touch buttons, its three user settings with ambient LED indicator keeps you in charge of the air you breathe.
Great for the office and home, Halo keeps unpleasant odours at bay and can increase your productivity and mood thanks to its constant release of negatively charged ions!
This unit is environmentally friendly with low wattage and a built-in energy saving microprocessor that controls cycles for your convenience. Extremely quiet with combination carbon and HEPA filters, Halo is perfect for filtering out even the smallest of particles.
FitAir® air purifiers don’t rely on harsh chemicals to cover-up indoor odours; instead they release negatively charged ions which safely remove the odour-causing toxins you breathe in every day. Nothing’s quite like a breath of FitAir® in your home, and with Halo you can keep it smelling fresh all day long.
The blue light indicates that the air purifier is on and the ioniser is working and emitting negative ions; these negative ions help to reduce smoke and dust particles in the air.
The red light signifies that it is in Ozone mode; don’t worry Ozone mode isn’t bad! Ozone destroys airborne bacteria and cleans the air more efficiently than ionisation (the blue light) on its own.
What causes bad odours?
Hate the feeling of walking into a stuffy room? You may not notice bad odours when you’ve been sat indoors for a long time, but when you’ve been outside smells from cooking, cleaning products, pets and dust can really hit you when you come back in. It’s the same with guests; everyone knows someone with a ‘fusty’ smelling house – don’t let it be yours!
This might sound like common ‘scents’…. but did you know most odours are made by VOCs (volatile organic compounds)? Your sense of smell is the effect of inhaling light volatile molecules which bind to the cilia (little hairs) within your nasal passage and trigger neurons to perceive a smell. VOCs are found in common household and workplace products; from cleaning agents and room fresheners to electronic appliances like copiers and printers, they are ever-present indoors and are even emitted from building components. Along with biological pollutants (like mould, bacteria and viruses) and gaseous irritants, VOCs are able to stay suspended in your air for very long periods of time. We inhale and exhale approximately 20,000 times a day; without purifying our air we end up living and breathing in an indoor chemical stew of contaminants.
A 2019 study by Kings College London proves the severe impact of poor air quality on the health and wellbeing of the general public
Each year emergency services see more than 120 additional cardiac arrests, more than 230 additional strokes and nearly 200 more people with asthma requiring hospital treatment on days of high pollution compared with the average on days of lower pollution. Aside from the frankly, frightening health complications, this heaps extra strain on our already stretched NHS emergency resources.
Simon Stevens, the chief executive of NHS England, said: “These new figures show air pollution is now causing thousands of strokes, cardiac arrests and asthma attacks, so it’s clear that the climate emergency is in fact also a health emergency.
The data collated covers London, where there are 338 more emergencies a year on higher pollution days compared with low pollution days, Birmingham (65 a year), Bristol (22), Derby (16), Liverpool (28), Manchester (34), Nottingham (19), Oxford (10) and Southampton (16).
Is your air fit to breathe?
While larger airborne particles get caught in our nose and throat, where we cough or swallow to remove them, 99% of the particles suspended in air are ultra-fine (one micron or smaller). Ultra-fine particles are ‘respirable’, meaning they are small enough to be inhaled, where they can remain embedded in the lungs or be absorbed into the blood stream. This is how poor air quality is able to infiltrate your body and affect your health.
If you suffer from asthma, allergies, fatigue or headaches during or after being inside a specific building, it may be due to airborne pollutants present within it. Building-related illnesses and other symptoms of poor health are commonly referred to as Sick Building Syndrome.
"Recent research has shown that small increases in air pollution are linked to significant rises in depression and anxiety. It has also linked dirty air to increased suicides and indicated that growing up in polluted places increases the risk of mental disorders. Other research has found that air pollution causes a “huge” reduction in intelligence and is linked to dementia. A global review in 2019 concluded that air pollution may be damaging every organ in the human body."

Air Purifier for Children's Health
If you are looking for an air purifier for a child’s bedroom, look no further than the FitAir® range. Our air purifiers kill up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria in the air. This is perfect for the whole family, but especially useful if you have young children. Younger children cannot blow their own noses, and their understanding of hygiene is non-existent. You therefore have to do all you can to stave off illnesses caused by germs and bacteria, many of which float around in the air; preparing to attack your little ones limited defences and make their lives miserable! A baby’s nursery air purifier can help give your little darlings the very best chance of avoiding the many hundreds of common cold and flu viruses that circulate in the air.
The FitAir® range offers outstanding protection for everyone from new-born babies to older adults. Air quality and children’s health directly reflect one another, this is why you will often see air purifiers in children’s nurseries; why should the home be any different? We have done our research to create the best air purifiers for baby’s bedrooms and the whole home, protecting you and the ones you love and giving you the FitAir® you deserve.
What is a HEPA filter and why are they so important?
The FitAir® Halo air purifier incorporates a HEPA filter into its efficient design. HEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air. It works by forcing air through a very fine mesh which then traps harmful particles such as dust mites, pollen, pet dander and cigarette smoke. HEPA filters therefore provide extreme and effective filtration of the air in your home ensuring the air you breathe is safe, pure and clean for the whole family. Having a HEPA air purifier like the FitAir® Halo will trap all those nasty pollutants which can trigger allergies and other medical condition in your family members.
Why air fresheners stink!
Unfortunately many people deal with poor indoor air quality by using aerosols, plug-ins or scented candles. However, the pleasant aromas associated with such products only overpower the existing smells. In other words, they re-odourise, but don’t de-odourise! Sprays and fresheners only coat airborne pollutants in even more chemicals, which we then go on to inhale. Did you know that 86% of air fresheners tested by the NRDC contained cancer-causing phthalates; even those marketed as ‘all-natural’ and ‘unscented’? These are not things you want to breathe in!
FitAir® is different
With Halo you no longer have to worry about what’s lurking in your air. By using negative ionisation technology, Halo safely and effectively eliminates the dangerous particles you breathe in every day and leaves behind a fresh, natural atmosphere free from pollutants and the odours they cause.
Inside the air purifier, oxygen from the air is negatively charged to form anions (ions with an extra electron). These are attracted to tiny airborne particles like VOCs, Biological Air Pollutants and Noxious Gases that are suspended in the air. The anions attack and destroy the harmful microbials they come in contact with through a process known as ‘cell lysing’. This ruptures the cell wall of the molecular structure and renders it harmless.
Once neutralised, the remaining particles are attracted to each other due to their electric charge, and as they cluster together they become heavy enough to drop out of your breathable air space. When you first start using FitAir® you may notice an increase in dust gathering on indoor surfaces; this is a sign your unit is working. After regular usage you’ll find that dusting and other cleaning is actually reduced – as there are no other particles in the air left to settle!
Halo is perfect for use at home, in the office, at school, in nursing homes and even hospitals; its bactericidal technology is so effective that it sterilises 99.99% of airborne germs after only half an hour of usage. It’s not just called Halo because of the glowing ring around its head; this little angel will protect you and your loved ones from breathing in dangerous indoor air pollutants and prevent the onset of building-related illnesses.

Super Effective All Year Round
The summer months can really feel like hell if you suffer from allergies. They flare up when the pollen count is high but staying inside doesn’t help! When it gets a bit hotter your first thought is to crack open a window but if you suffer from hay fever you will have to decide if you prefer being hot and sweaty or having red, puffy eyes as pollen can be blown into the building through open windows. Air conditioning isn’t the solution either, because air conditioning systems recycle air from outside, allergens can still get in and irritate you as most air conditioning units don’t have a filter to trap them. At home, pollen is easily carried indoors by pets, shoes and clothing as well, so no escape there. Once blown inside there's a much higher concentration of these little allergens which then lead to hay fever, asthma, and rhinitis symptoms. A FitAir® unit deals with the allergens themselves so that you don’t have to choose between feeling refreshingly cool and free from sniffles and sneezes.
When summer finally comes to an end you would think that would be the end of you air related problems but no, winter brings its own issues in terms of air quality and pollution. As the cold nights draw in we spend as much time inside as possible so you need to ensure the air is fit for you to breath. Winter brings with it cold and flu for a lot of people, the viruses that cause these illnesses become trapped in our homes making recovery from them more difficult, using a FitAir® unit will take these out of the air to stop you feeling bunged up.

Who is FitAir® For?
Indoor air quality can often be worse than outside. Poor ventilation makes our homes stagnant and filled with pollutants.
Over 8 million people in the UK suffer with asthma. Dust mites, pollen and mould in the home can induce and worsen this respiratory illness.
35% of the UK suffer from pet allergies. As well as feeding microscopic creepy crawlies, organic detritus (flakes of human and animal skin) can cause irritation to people with allergies. As they're so tiny, skin cells quickly become airborne and will stay suspended for long periods of time. Pet dander is commonplace in homes that haven't even been occupied by animals as it's easily carried on people's clothing.
To eradicate these problems and keep the air in your home healthy, invest in a FitAir® purifier today. We inhale and exhale approximately 20,000 times a day. By failing to clean the air we’re breathing, it becomes a chemical stew of containments which can lead to long-term health complications.
Thanks to FitAir®, creating a clean and fresh ‘airvironment’ doesn’t have to be hard work! Eliminate 99.99% of airborne germs and bacteria with the FitAir® Halo.
