Airest / Plant air conditioning


In a city full of tall buildings, it’s precious to have plants to bring comfort and purify the air. Airest, a curtain-type plant air conditioning system, can be installed in internal glass walls of buildings or used as screen. Environmental-friendly plants can grow inside the air conditioning system which can purify indoor air, alleviate the temperature change, and adjust humidity, etc. The circulation system can filter harmful particulates. Also, plants in the system can purify formaldehyde and other toxic gases and release purified air with oxygen and phytoncide produced by the plants, creating green scenes and clean air for busy cities.
