With the deteriorating quality of outside air, due to a variety of reasons, combined with the need to better control the control of matter generated from within occupied spaces, the selection of effective air filtration, using current state of art methodology, has become a critical design factor. Standards Australia will publish AS16890, Parts 1 to 4, this year. This presentation will demonstrate the key points of this standard, how it compares to the old AS1324 series and legacy international standards, as well as how to apply it to achieve better outcomes in application. Seminar Cost - $10
