    AerNua is an engineering solution. AerNua is a continuous air delivery and filtration system. Our products intake stale air directly from the Breathing Zone, passes the air through a Multi-Stage Filtration system removing particulates < 1 micrometer. Then the air enters into our unique enclosed Triple Stage UV safe sterilisation chamber which the air is exposed to the scientifically proven UV-C exposure time. We provide a solution that continuously filters and sterilises air quality in all indoor environments. AerNua is an indoor air filtration and purification system that manages viruses such as Covid-19, the flu and other common pathogens.
