The notion that our homes are our sanctuaries became even more salient when we had to spend all our time indoors during the height of Covid-19. Although we are slightly more cognisant of the invisible enemies hovering in the air now, picking out a suitable air purifier can provide significant benefits that help us wake up with clearer sinuses and less raspy throats. Moreover, with more workers returning to the workplace, understanding the potential risks of coronavirus particles circulating through the office ventilation system is crucial to restore a sense of trust and comfort among employees.
Contrary to popular belief, air pollution in our homes occurs not from traffic and factories outside, but primarily from what happens inside. However, with so many purifiers in the market that tout various benefits, how does one choose a quiet assistant that alleviates air pollution and allergens? The all-new, world-class Coway NOBLE, equipped with a suite of the latest technologies and innovations, could be just the breath of fresh air you need.
The first-of-its-kind 4D filter in Malaysia, NOBLE employs a 360° purification to capture, clean and circulate air from every direction. A modern purifier’s function, no longer as singular as it once was, seeks to offer an all-encompassing solution to everyday hygiene woes. Hence, the adjustable panels in NOBLE that allow custom setting of airflow direction and circulation come in handy. When the Normal Mode is switched on, it cleans the entire space by circulating clear air at 360°; the Front Mode quickly and intensively removes allergens in a highly polluted area, while the Back Mode maintains air quality by providing a soothing, soft breeze.
Just as thorough as we are about keeping every nook and cranny of our house dirt-free, Coway is meticulous about the way fresh air enters our homes. Even without the presence of the coronavirus, high quantities of mould, pollen, ozone and organic compounds that form inside our homes as byproducts of cooking, cleaning or building materials could be hazardous to our health. To prevent that, Coway has devised a six-step filtration that includes a 4D pre-filter, smoke and allergen filter, 4D Double HEPA filter and two deodorisation filters. Together with an ultraviolet C (UVC) sterilisation function that keeps bacteria like E.coli at bay, NOBLE’s powerful system can eliminate an array of contaminants effectively such as smoke, dust particles, pet hair, odour and harmful gases.
Homeowners and families (particularly with small children) need not worry about airborne viruses as NOBLE, which can cover up to 66 m2 , is also equipped with a state-of-the-art Double HEPA filter that has been certified to inactivate 99.999% of SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variants, Influenza A virus (H1N1) and Human Coronavirus (HCoV-OC43). This new feat of technology not only doubles your protection with its antibacterial and antifungal properties, it also inhibits the spread of pollutants by curbing the performance of the virus’ cell membranes and protein structures. Moreover, it removes up to 99.999% of ultrafine dust with particle sizes down to 0.01μm.
The right air purifier will have a positive and perceptible impact on your health, but a well-engineered and appealing one can even blend seamlessly into your home’s aesthetics. Housed in a sleek and classy Pebble Gray case that is easy on the eye, NOBLE has bagged several international accolades, including Good Design Award 2021, iF Design Award 2021, Good Design Korea, Pin Up Design Awards, bronze award at iDEA Award 2021 and the Red Dot Award 2021 and 2022.
Controls, mounted on a zero pressure touch panel that allows you to choose your preferred settings with a gentle nudge, are instantly intuitive. Wheels, tucked under an invisible bottom, help you move the purifier effortlessly should you need to reposition or relocate it to another room. For added convenience, an LED indicator — with a built-in PM1.0 sensor that can detect even the slightest fine dust — gives you a visual readout of real-time air quality at a glance. Pollution levels are displayed numerically in four stages of lighting: Good (blue), Normal (green), Poor (yellow) and Bad (red).
Bringing quick respite to your home has never been easier when NOBLE comes with dust, light and gas sensors, along with four modes: Smart, Turbo, Eco and Silent (quiet enough for minimal sleep disruption).
Being savvier about our health is more than just understanding what we are putting in our bodies — paying more attention to the invisible exposure that we come into contact with on a daily basis also matters. After all, hygiene is the new luxury as we seek to filter out toxicity. Although air purifiers are fast becoming a common household item, Coway’s latest addition to its successful portfolio of technological inventions proves that it can look as good as it performs.
