Source capture ventilation is the most effective way to control nail dust and odor in today’s modern nail salons.  With the release of new Healthy Air technology, Aerovex Systems offers the state of the art in nail salon ventilation.

Every Healthy Air Source Capture System utilizes patented eHEPA technology in combination with advanced activated carbon filtration to trap, adsorb, and decompose pollutants at the source.

But don’t take our word for it, read what long time nail technician, author and educator Ruth Windsor has to say about the Healthy Air Nails Source Capture System from Aerovex.  Thanks Ruth!

 

Week 1

Got to use my Healthy Air System to with a guest. I did a re-white and it truly lives up to its promise. It was quiet, sucked up dust and vapors. I am booked tomorrow and will see how that goes, but I am really impressed right now. I was so amazed watching the dust just being sucked right into the hose. Thank you Jeff Cardarella and Aerovex Systems for making a great machine and helping protect my health.   – Ruth Windsor

 

 

Week 2

I have finished the second week of testing my new Aerovex Systems Source Capture System with Healthy Air Technology. Thursday was my busy day and usually on Friday after breathing in the dust and vapors I am sneezing, eyes watering, and just feel miserable and my day is wasted spent on the couch and popping antihistamines. Not this week, I was feeling great and was able to get so much done. Then I worked today for 5 hours and still feel great. I have a couple clients that wear Backscratchers Extreme and normally breathing in the vapors would aggravate my nose and eyes, but nothing.  I barely could smell it at all. And if you work like me I am all over/on top of my work space. I even used it while doing a pedicure, not so much for the vapor aspect, but to see how it would work. Dust be gone while using the hand file and the electric file. Minimal dust and no vapors it was definitely worth the investment. Stay tuned to this channel more to come.  – Ruth Windsor

Week 3

I have a small 8×11 room and yes, it is packed (over packed) with my many treasures. And, here is my week 3 update. No allergy issues and still no antihistamines. I am very impressed with this fact alone; as it helps me to live and have a better quality of my days. As you can see I have a lot of equipment and with the way my room is set up, I have placed my system to the left of my station. I am right handed and my tools are on my right – having it to the left doesn’t over crowd me. Also, having it here allows me to also use it when doing my pedicures and I don’t have to rearrange my room/setup. The hose is long enough so that I can use it overhead when filing or lay it on the table when I am doing tasks like shortening or re-whites.

The flexibility of the hose is an awesome bonus. The dust compared to what I use to get to the little that is shown below now is what makes this the second best feature.   Doug Schoon has preached to us for many years about protecting our breathing space and I may be a day late and a dollar short, but I am now on the band wagon and kicking myself for not doing it sooner. If you are not protecting yours – invest in your health and safety now.  – Ruth Windsor

Source Capture Ventilation Key to Proper Keratin Straightening Treatments

 

 


Dependable keratin hair-smoothing/straightening companies will state “use proper salon ventilation during the entire hair smoothing service” in their manufacturer’s instructions and training manuals.  Many salon owners are unaware that to fully protect the stylist, client & salon environment, they need a “chemical source capture system” to provide proper ventilation.

I’ve asked numerous salon owners and stylists what type of ventilation they provide for their keratin hair straightening services, and they usually report using fans & opening windows/doors.  Some report only doing these services at night so their other clients aren’t subject to the fumes/vapors. New ventilation technologies and systems have been developed specifically for salons that offer keratin hair smoothing/straightening services. These systems will help salon owners to comply with current and potentially more restrictive OSHA requirements.  

A salon “chemical source capture system” protects the stylist and client’s breathing zone. An effective salon air purifier will cleanse the air in the stylist’s workstation area & circulate fresh air throughout the salon. Special filters are available which are designed to remove salon vapors/odors & dusts from the buildings’ HVAC system. The bonus is that salons using these innovative salon ventilation control measures and systems will also benefit from the reduction of vapors/odors & dusts created from providing a range of chemical services, including color, bleach, artificial nail services and hair removal.

Patented Healthy Air Technology Now Available in Aerovex Systems’ Chemical Source Capture Systems

Healthy Air TM technology protects the hair stylist’s & their client’s breathing zone by removing formaldehyde fumes and chemical vapors, odors and dusts produced during keratin hair smoothing treatments, at their source.

Dr. Karim Zahedi and a team of scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA, developed the fundamental technology incorporated into the Healthy Air TM system.

Aerovex Systems and Healthy Air Inc. have worked together to design the completely new Healthy Air TM source capture system based on an enhanced HEPA technology, referred to as eHEPA.  The high energy field raises the capture efficiency and adsorption of keratin smoothing formaldehyde fumes and other salon chemical vapors and odors. This process also captures and decomposes airborne germs and viruses, while extending the useful life of the filter to four times longer than a HEPA filter.

eHepa and activated carbon filtration in combination with an energy field, holds pathogens, chemical vapors and odors in the filter longer so they can be adsorbed and decomposed. The end result is a system that removes the dangerous fumes from the breathing zone and then effectively captures them on filtration media, providing a cleaner and healthier air for salons.

This technology is exclusive to Aerovex Systems and not available in other source capture ventilation systems.

Now for the first time salons can remove germs and pathogens from your breathing zone and salon air along with chemical vapors and dusts produced during any hair salon chemical service.

 

The Chemical Source Capture System with Healthy Air Technology features a clear hood and easy to change plug and play filter system

Key features of the “Healthy Air” Chemical Source Capture System include:

·  Protects stylist’s & client’s “breathing zone”

·  Cleans the air from chemicals and particles

·  New eHEPA™ technology combines the use of a high energy field with   traditional HEPA filtration process

·  Enhanced activated carbon filtration

·  Electronic control panel with remote control

·  Newly designed clear hood with LED lighting

·  Sturdier, solid ergonomic design

·  Quiet: approx. 58 dBa at 6 feet

·  Notification for filter change

·  Portable with wheels for easy relocation

·  Exceeds OSHA requirements

Doug Schoon Presents the Top Ten Myths Related to Artificial Nails

Myths.  They are all around us.  Whether it be urban legend or something that is related to our everyday life, it is important to dispel fiction from facts.  This is especially important when it comes to things that you deal with everyday life and affect you directly, like your profession.

Doug Schoon, scientist and internationally known expert on the nail salon industry has laid out 10 popular myths related to artificial nails that will help modern nail technicians separate fact from fiction.  Highlighted in this post is myth number 9 on Mr. Schoon’s list, “You should wear a mask when you do nails”.

Click Here To Read Doug's Article

When proper measures are taken, such as using a source capture ventilation system in your salon, nail dust masks are not necessary.  By using these systems you capture the dust and vapor at the source of the problem, not allowing them to migrate into the salon air.  Masks might work well for stopping dust, but have no effect on stopping harmful vapors from entering your body.  Source capture systems take in this harmful vapor where the work is being done and capture them in a thick bed of activated carbon.

Check out this myth and others here as stated by Mr. Schoon here.
