The Hextio comes with both the original fragrance filter hood and the NEW Directional Hood. The Directional Hood enables you to point the air flow towards you so that you can breathe clean air both at home or on your desk at work. The new hood clips on so that you can use the Hextio either upright or lying down.
Hextio was a Smogathon 2017 finalist and the only air purifier technology and only team from the UK to get through to the final, verifying its benefits for reducing pollutants in indoor air.
The Radic8 Hextio is an advanced air steriliser and air purifier destroys a wide range of pollutants and odours including chemicals and fumes, odours, smoke particles, traffic pollution (including nitrogen dioxide), mould spores, pet dander, dust and dust mite, pollen, viruses and bacteria. It destroys pollutants that HEPA filtration cannot catch.
To ensure maximum Photo-Catalysis for optimum levels of pollution destruction, the reactor chamber consists of 1UVC (ultra violet C) lamp, 9 chrome coated TiO2 (titanium dioxide) hexagon filters and a chrome coated housing. The mirrored reactor chamber increases the UV efficiency by 10 times and the sterilization rate in the chamber is very high. The reator cell lasts for up to 8000hrs (average 3yrs). The filter change indicator for the Reactor Cell ensures the unit is working to its full potential at all times.
We are hearing more and more about the need for air purifiers in our home to tackle the rise in indoor pollutants and this little model is an air steriliser plus purifier and is unobtrusive as well as stylish. This super efficient technology is both fully automatic and cost effective so it can be left on all the time to deal with any pollutants or allergens which come into your air space. The activated carbon filter in the unit interacts with the UV (do not look directly at this light) and PCO (photo catalytic oxidation) greatly increasing efficiency and longevity and the sirocco fan was chosen for its better quality, higher efficiency and lower noise output and has a higher air output.
The Radic8 Hextio is fully automatic and incorporated in the technology are dust, germ and VOC sensors that constantly sample the air and react accordingly by glowing red and switching to full fan speed until the contaminant has been dealt with. Just plug it in and let the Hextio do the rest.
When switched to sleep mode the unit runs at 10% power reducing fan noise for a comfortable night's sleep. The LED lights switch off eliminating any light coming from the unit.
The Hextio is compact enough to be hung on the wall or placed on a level surface, both giving you the ultimate in clean fresh air.
This is a very efficient all round air steriliser / air purifier that is best suited to destroying VOCs, germs, mould and fungi, bacteria and viruses and fine dust particles. For particle removal only we recommend an air purifier with an effective HEPA filter.
Hextio is ideal for one room use, though it is small and light so easy to move from one room to another. It is suitable for kitchen use but should be turned off while actually cooking as the oils created during cooking can damage the reactor cell. We recommend leaving the machine off while cooking and switching it back on 10 minutes after cooking is finished.
