LightAir Health+ installed for World Figure Skating Championships in Stockholm
The Swedish Figure Skating Association relies on proven solution for clean and virus-free air
On Wednesday evening, the World Figure Skating Championships will get under way at the Ericsson Globe arena in Stockholm, Sweden. The ongoing pandemic has challenged the organizers, with the Swedish Figure Skating Association at the forefront. An advanced system for improved indoor air, through both active virus control and air purification, has therefore been installed and will be in use the entire week of the championships.
“People breathe about a thousand times an hour, which is why air quality is always very important," says Pierre Akterin, sales manager at DocuPartner, one of LightAir's partners providing the Health+ offer in Sweden. “Arranging a major international championship in these times naturally puts the quality of the air even more into focus. It is extra fun that we’re able to utilize this Swedish-developed technology for efficient air purification at an international event in Sweden.”
LightAir Health+ is an innovative solution for air purification that consists of two complementary technologies. First, highly efficient air purifiers that lower the concentration of air pollutants through filtration. As much as 99.99% of traffic pollutants, pollen, viruses and ultrafine particles are removed from the indoor air. The second component consists of patented virus inhibitors, which actively seek out and destroy residual airborne viruses in the air. The two technologies together thus provide double protection against airborne viruses.
“Our focus is usually on offices and schools,” says Joakim Hansson, business area manager at LightAir. “There we are constantly winners in our own niche championship, which revolves around degree of purification, noise level and energy consumption. The offer is of course also well suited for this type of special event with incoming international participants who will share many common areas. It is encouraging to see how many far-sighted organizations, such as the Swedish Figure Skating Association, choose scientifically proven solutions for improved air quality and reduced spread of infections.”
In the Nordic region, LightAir Health+ is mainly offered on a subscription basis, where clean air is provided as a service – including installation and ongoing maintenance. The service does not tie up capital and comes with a lifetime warranty regarding hardware functionality.
The World Figure Skating Championships begin on Wednesday evening and run until Sunday March 28. It is one of the world's largest winter sports events and is followed by around 300 million TV viewers around the world.

Through a filtration with 99.99% efficiency, the highest possible air purification is achieved with a minimal presence of, for example, ultrafine particles, traffic pollutants and pollen. The antiviral capacity of the IonFlow technology has been established, among other things, after a seven-year study by researchers at the Karolinska Institute, and has been published in the medical journal Nature Scientific Report: https://www.nature.com/articles/srep11431
