The Indoor Air Quality Star Rating™ Standard

About Us

We’re on a mission, to save lives…

By making clean & safe indoor air a reality for all of us, and our children.

Clean air, it’s in our genes…

Friends since primary school, having grown up in the English Lake District, with clean, healthy air taken for granted, now with no idea what we’re breathing…

Like many, COVID changed our world and as we looked for more answers we found more questions.

Where is safe to visit? What is the impact on our children of going to places? Where should we exercise? Where should we live? What products should we use? Who should we trust? Should we be inside or out?

We founded AirZones

to answer the questions…

With you (and all of us) in mind

Frustrated that there was way of knowing the difference in air quality between venues in Dubai, we founded AirZonesto address this.

Knowing which venues are safe for us and our families is key to choosing where we visit, eat and sleep, yet no one could prove they had clean air.

Helping business improve air quality and independently verifying this resulted in them attracting more customers – clean air is finally a commercial advantage! Now we help everyone breath clean air!

Who is AirZones ?

AirZoneswas founded by scientists, business leaders and engineers, by parents,
athletes, friends and colleagues… by people who are frustrated of the lack of traction
for clean air.
Bringing together people from all backgrounds translates AirZones/our holistic and
sustainable approach, which not only considers the science, environmental and
engineering viewpoints, but also commercial needs as well.
The result is a team that delivers a commercial clean air solutions to unlock the market.
With air quality assessment and mitigation services, safe air is now commercially
available, AirZonesmain objective remains to reduce illness and ultimately save lives
in a world where all parties are winners!
