the Air

Tried and Tested

Most of our commercial air filtration products have been developed in-house, tried and tested by independent bodies and universities, and used by leading brands.

UK Manufacturer

We are a UK based manufacturer that designs, supplies and services commercial kitchen air filtration and odour control solutions, and indoor air quality systems.

38+ Years Experience

Specialising in commercial kitchen extraction, we also design market-leading commercial indoor air filtration systems to combat virus and bacteria threats.

Built for stock

Customers benefit from short lead times and quick delivery because most of our air filtration products are built for stock.

Early pioneers in air filtration

As an early pioneer in the control of kitchen pollution, we developed commercially viable systems in the late 1980s. We work with major brand leaders across the fast and casual dining sectors and draw on decades of experience to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) in public spaces such as offices, shopping centres and airports. We are committed to continuous product development, which currently focuses on improving air quality in our public spaces and creating healthier environments.

Our history

Purified Air is a commercial air filtration company that specialises in indoor air control and odour control and was founded in 1984.

As our commercial kitchen extraction company grew rapidly in the ‘80s, so did our in-house service team. We soon began working with international brands like McDonalds – a long-term relationship that remains today – and expanded globally when our first major distributor in the Middle East was established. We’ve been commissioned to supply air filtration systems for kitchen extraction and indoor air control for high profile clients – from Pizza Express to Premier Inn, and Harrods to the Houses of Parliament.

Over the years, our reputation for in-depth expertise in air filtration and IAQ grew. We have been called upon by government representatives to advise on official guidance for the control of cooking emissions.

With long-standing senior leaders and a robust team of over 80 employees, Purified Air is now a major distributor on every continent and across 40 countries. Always at the forefront of new technologies and innovations in the commercial air filtration industry, we’re actively involved in the design of every project. Today we’re helping organisations combat the spread of COVID-19 by designing virus irradiation units to combat airborne coronavirus in occupied spaces.
