How Fellowes can help future proof your facility and adhere to BS 40102

Considering an indoor air quality assessment?

If you’re reading this article, you have most likely already considered the importance of the indoor air quality (IAQ) of your building to some extent and its relationship with the health and wellbeing of those using your facility.

While IAQ was understandably high on the agenda of many Facilities Managers in light of the pandemic, it’s key to pro-actively plan forward for everyday issues that can be borne out of poor indoor air quality, issues that were in existence before 2020.

Furthermore, through our breakthrough monitoring technology, we are able to advise how your building is performing against BS 40102.

On average we spend 90% of our time indoors, and indoor air can be 2-5x dirtier than outdoor air*. Fellowes often finds when carrying out complimentary IAQ assessments that there are increased levels of contaminants within a building, that often have a detrimental impact on those using it; whether this be high levels of PM2.5 contributing to short term illness, lower productivity and increased absenteeism, or unwanted odours that impact the positive perception that the client wants to uphold. Not only do we help identify problem areas, we are also through over a decade of innovation able to help clients mitigate their specific issues once identified.

What can Facilities Managers expect with a complimentary IAQ assessment?

We understand that each indoor environment is a complex ecosystem effected by factors such as heating, cooling and ventilation systems, building construction, and age as well as factors outside of the building’s envelope such as geographic region, contaminants and more. Fellowes offers comprehensive assessments to help you determine the IAQ levels for your facility so you can take action where needed.

Each assessment includes placement of our Signal IAQ monitoring device in key areas you’d like to review. Signal will track the area’s overall air quality over a designated period including the following metrics:

  • PM2.5/PM10
  • TVOCs
  • CO2
  • Relative Humidity
  • Temperature
  • Air Pressure
  • Test & balance reporting (optional add-on)

Once the assessment is complete, Fellowes provides you with IAQ data along with recommendations for possible remediation improvements should you wish to explore further.
