Typically, apartment buildings are designed with an ineffective Corridor Ventilation Strategy in mind whereby fresh air is only pumped into the hallways and then pulled into individual units. Contaminants within the corridors along with unwanted pollutants are often forced into apartment dwellings. Door Filter™ has a dense particulate filter eliminating pests, allergens and even unpleasant odors before they enter your living space.
Unfiltered air often carries biological and chemical hitchhikers that can affect your family’s environment and even their health. Door Filter™ is the cost efficient, non invasive way of controlling pollution at the source once installed at your Door Bottom or Door threshold .

What is door filter?
Door Filter™ is a dense ABS extension that is fitted and secured to the bottom of the inside face of an apartment entry door and lined with a door sweep. A removable multi-stage air filter is placed inside the device. Small openings in the plastic allow air to pass through the device and internal filter promoting clean airflow into the apartment unit. The system has the added benefit of reducing noise and eliminating light transfer from the corridor into the suite. In short, with Door Filter™, you can now add fresh air to the many benefits of apartment living.
Why use it?
Door Filter™ air filter is a way to help remove indoor air irritants like dust, odor, noise, pests, light, and cooking fumes.
Controlling the source
The most effective way to improve indoor air quality is to eliminate the source of pollution.
The Clean Air Difference
There is a long list of common complaints among apartment dwellers related to indoor air quality. This is a result of the ineffective “Corridor Ventilation Strategy” which has been replicated since the 1960’s in thousands of buildings across North America (and internationally).
Essentially, fresh air is pumped into common corridors and then makes its way into each apartment unit through the spaces around a unit’s entry door (between the door and its frame). While air enters into a unit, so may a host of other irritants like dust, odor, noise, pests, light, and cooking fumes. These system failings are well documented through academic research.
Typical solutions are either ineffective and highly energy consuming or invasive and cost-prohibitive – for example, the installation of separate, suite-by-suite suite ventilation systems.
