LG INTRODUCES ADVANCED AIR PURIFYING SOLUTIONS IN SINGAPORE
- 09, 17 2015
SINGAPORE, September 17, 2015 – LG Electronics (LG) has introduced its latest range of air purifying solutions in Singapore. The LG Air Purifier lineup includes the R459WN and S209WC. The impressive product implements a number of cutting-edge filters that remove invisible air pollutants – including haze, haze-causing pollutants and other harmful airborne contaminants such as ultrafine particles and particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) – from the home.
“LG is very proud to introduce the LG Air Purifier in Singapore,” said Mr. Scott Jung, Managing Director of LG Electronics Singapore. “Packed with advanced, proprietary air filtration technologies, our flagship model protects consumers’ health by removing haze, haze-causing pollutants and other potentially harmful substances from the air. LG’s latest air purifiers are effective and reliable solutions, designed specifically to meet the needs of the local market.”
The LG Air Purifier drastically improves air quality in the home, employing several advanced filters to combat invisible pollutants. The Haze & Odor Away filter absorbs haze and haze-causing pollutants including SO2 and NO2 while simultaneously gets rid of bad smells in the home. Meanwhile, the purifier’s washable powerful HEPA filter collects ultrafine particles (smaller than 0.03 micrometers in size) and eliminates bacteria, viruses and 99.9 percent of PM2.5. Both the Haze & Odor Away filter and the HEPA filter have been certified by Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials (KIMM) and China Testing & Inspection Institute for Household Electric Appliances (CTIHEA).
Further improving air quality, is the Dual Protection filter which consists of three layers. The Dual Protection filter removes bacteria, large dust particles, hair and pet fur from the indoor environment. It even helps to protect the Air Purifier’s other filters.
Moreover, the LG Air Purifier’s Allergy Filter employs the Proteinase K enzyme to fight dust mites, pollen and mold; rendering allergens harmless by breaking down their protein combinations. Capable of capturing 99 percent of dust mites within two hours of operation, the Allergy Filter has earned the British Allergy Foundation’s internationally recognized Seal of Approval.
The LG Air Purifier R459WN and S209WC are now available in Courts, Gain City, Harvey Norman and selected NTUC Hyper mart for $399 and $299 respectively.
