Eurovent, the European industry association, has published a new testing standard for measuring residential air filters.

The ‘Eurovent 4/22 – 2015’ standard applies to filters which have an air flow between 70 to 1000 m³/h. This fills a current standards ISO and EN gap as well as a future gap. The Eurovent standard covers the upcoming ISO 16890 ('Air filters for general ventilation).
​Chairman of the Eurovent Product Group ‘Air Filters’, Jan Andersson said:
“The new testing method will bring clarity to the market by covering an area that had so far not been fully covered by ISO or EN standards.”
He added:
“The industry recommendation will contribute to a level-playing field through ensuring comparable test results that are based on the same testing method.”
​The Eurovent product group represents over 20 manufacturers from Europe, the Middle East and Africe who, between them, have over 90% market share in the region for air filters.
