No. Designing a unit that’s quiet and unobtrusive was a top priority. We took great care to make sure our units are below conversational speech (below 60 dBa). A quiet unit enables technicians to carry on conversations with their client’s at a normal talking level. As a result, our units do not need an exhaust silencer.
No! This is a misconception. Air purifiers, are not meant for and simply do not work in, the salon environment.
