Extreme design.

Expands the boundaries of stand-alone filtration.

Extreme design.



Two-stage modular approach

Most great ideas are simple, and the CleanZone 5000 Series modular design is a perfect example. By designing the system as two separate modules, IQAir’s engineering team was able to create a flexible and superior lineup of high-volume air purifiers to meet every need. All three models share the same powerful yet quiet fan, and the same efficient high-efficiency pre-filter. But a variety of main filter module (the second module) configurations allows for specific filtration solutions for specialized commercial air quality problems.

Unprecedented adaptability

Never before has an air purifier this powerful been available in this many configurations. The CleanZone 5000 Series can be customized for maximum filtration of particulates, for control of volatile organic compounds, for formaldehyde, ammonia, mercury and even acids such as hydrogen sulfide or sulfur dioxide and other contaminants. IQAir believes that when you make an investment in a commercial air purifier it’s important to get the exact filtration you need.

Upflow, downflow

Each CleanZone 5000 Series model can be oriented to provide airflow from bottom up (“upflow”) or from top down (“downflow”). While upflow is more common, there are many good reasons to reorient a CleanZone 5000 Series to provide downflow. For example, a downflow orientation may be desirable for treating indoor pollution such as tobacco smoke that tends to rise. The CleanZone 5000 Series performs just as well in either direction.

Energy efficient

Even though the CleanZone 5000 is more powerful than other IQAir stand-alone systems, it requires very little power. At the very heart of this air purifier is the ultra-efficient centrifugal, high performance IQAir fan and its maintenance-free motor. This amazing fan delivers an extraordinary rate of clean air continuously. As a result, it costs very little to run the most advanced and effective air purifier in the world.

Swiss quality

The CleanZone 5000 has not only been Swiss designed and engineered, it is also manufactured in Switzerland. While many of our competitors outsource the manufacturing process of their air cleaning system to other companies, for IQAir the manufacturing process is the logical conclusion to the process of creating a high-performance product. It exemplifies our commitment not only to what we make, but how we make it. By using the highest quality components, a team of dedicated craftsmen and women, and a manufacturing processes refined over 50 years, IQAir is able to build the finest air purifiers in the world.

Ultimate filtration

High-efficiency pre-filterThe CleanZone 5100 model combines two of IQAir’s most powerful filtration media into a single high-capacity air purifier. First, a high-efficiency filter module cleans the air of a minimum of 95% of all particles 0.3 microns in diameter of larger, and more than 85% of all ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns, the smallest particles that exist. After passing through the high-efficiency pre-filtration module, the cleaned air is then powerfully drawn through 301 square feet (27.96m2) of advanced IQAir HyperHEPA® filtration media. This filters any remaining particles, with a total efficiency of 99.97% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger and 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns in diameter.

Tamper-proof exterior

Clean, tamper-proof exteriorThe CleanZone 5000 Series was designed to perform at its best in busy public areas, such as open plan offices, classrooms and medical facilities. Unlike consumer air purifiers the CleanZone 5000 Series is designed to be inherently tamper-proof. Access to filters, fan speed controls and the power cable can all be limited and made available to authorized staff only.

More than
of all airborne

0.003 microns


Viruses: 0.005 – 0.3 microns

Like bacteria, viruses are organisms that spread airborne diseases as mild as the common cold and as serious as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) through coughs, sneezes and improperly maintained ventilation systems.

Tobacco Smoke
Tobacco Smoke

Tobacco Smoke: 0.01 – 1 micron

Sidestream smoke has higher concentrations of cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) than mainstream smoke. And, it has smaller particles than mainstream smoke, which make their way into the lungs and the body's cells more easily.


Soot: 0.01 – 0.3 microns

Long-term exposure to urban air pollution containing soot increases the risk of coronary heart disease, according to a major study published in New England Journal of Medicine in 2007.

Pet Dander
Pet Dander

Pet Dander: 0.1 – 25 microns

Pet dander is the old skin and fur that pets shed. Animal dander is very small and can become attached to your clothingeven if you do not own a pet. Dander can be found everywhere: floors, carpets, walls, furniture, bedding, even the ceilings. Pet dander is a known asthma and allergy trigger.

Dust Mites Allergens
Dust Mites

Dust Mites Allergens: 0.2 – 25 microns

House dust mites are considered to be the most common cause of asthma and allergic symptoms worldwide. Dust mites themselves do not cause an allergic reaction, however, their dung-pellets are an irritant to sensitive people and can cause breathing difficulties. They thrive in warm, humid, dark conditions such as mattresses, carpets, sheets, pillows, and upholstery.


Bacteria: 0.5 – 10 microns

People spread bacteria through the air when they cough and sneeze, transmitting respiratory diseases and triggering symptoms in asthma sufferers. Bacteria can also grow inside poorly maintained ventilation systems, which spread it into the circulating air.


Household Dust
Household Dust

Household Dust: 1 – 100 micron

Dust may worsen hay fever. Circulating outdoor air through a house by keeping doors and windows open, or at least slightly ajar, may reduce the risk of hay fever-causing dust. In colder climates, occupants seal even the smallest air gaps, and eliminate outside fresh air circulating inside the house. So it is essential to manage dust and airflow.


Fine Particles

Less than

Mold Spores
Mold Spores

Mold Spores: 8 – 80 microns

Mold and fungus are commonly found in most homes and may be found in the air ducts of your heating/cooling system. They tend to float throughout the house, and form new colonies where they land. Fungus spores have been known to increase the chances of developing asthma.


Pollen: 10 – 100 microns

One of the most common allergens is pollen. It affects the nose, eyes, and mouth making it difficult to breathe. Most pollen that produces allergic reactions is from trees, grasses, and weeds.

Select one of the particles
above to see how it affects your body

ULTRAFINE PARTICLES (Particles 0.003μ - 0.1μ) | 90% of all airborne particles

Ultrafine particles are airborne particles less than 0.1 microns in diameter. In sheer number, they represent more than 90% of all airborne pollutants. Ultrafine particles are inhaled and deposited directly into the lungs, where they penetrate tissue and can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Through the bloodstream, they can reach any organ or area of the human body.

FINE PARTICLES (PM2.5) | Greater than 9% of all airborne particles

Fine particles (also known as PM2.5) are particulate matter that is less than or equal to 2.5 microns in diameter. Fine particles penetrate deeply into the lungs, into areas known as small airways and into the primary air exchange areas of the lungs. Fine particles come from vehicle exhaust, gas and chemical reactions, tobacco smoke, burning candles and other indoor and outdoor sources.

COARSE PARTICLES (PM10) | Less than 1% of all airborne particles

Coarse particles (also known as PM10) are those with a diameter between 2.5 and 10 microns in diameter. Coarse particles are deposited almost exclusively in the nose and throat. They are not generally inhalable directly into the lungs. Examples of PM10 include coal dust, fly ash, some components of wood smoke, asbestos fibers, and roadside particles from tires and brakes. This category also includes dust, some pollen and mold spores.
