GCX™ Series

Take control of the air.

Features that make the GCX the industry leader.

Take control of the air.

3D UltraSeal™ eliminates leakage

The efficiency stated for most air cleaners is purely theoretical. Internal leakage drastically reduces the actual efficiency of most air cleaners. IQAir systems feature patented triple sealing technology. First, a unique process ensures that the filter media is 100% sealed in the filter frame. Second, IQAir’s patented 3D UltraSeal ensures perfect knife-edge-in-groove sealing between filter frame and housing. Third, individual seals on each housing module ensure an airtight housing. As a result, IQAir systems have a total system efficiency that is higher than the theoretical efficiency of conventional air cleaners.

The New Edition Fan

GCX Series air purifiers feature the IQAir New Edition fan – the most powerful fan ever used in a stand-alone air purifier. That exceptional power translates into better air cleaning results. The new three-dimensionally optimized fan design uses state-of-the-art aerodynamics to convert energy into more air and less noise. IQAir systems use the highest quality fan motor available. This fan has an astonishing 780 cfm (1325 m³/h) rating at 2750 rpm (without filters). Because each fan is individually balanced and uses steel ball bearings, it outlasts other fans by years. The IQAir New Edition fan is suspended in a housing unit that isolates the fan from the housing with eight shock absorbers to further reduce noise.

Anti-Tampering Kit

Anti-Tampering KitEach GCX Series air purifier includes two anti-tampering fixtures that help prevent any unauthorized alteration in use of the system. First, an arm-locking fixture prevents unauthorized access to the system filters. Also, a power cable inlet fixture prevents unauthorized unplugging of the system. A simple flat-head screwdriver is the only extra tool needed to install both kits, since the GCX ships with a simple IQAir Tool Pack. Both anti-tampering fixtures can be installed in about a minute.

Sophisticated controls

The GCX Series features six fan speeds, and streamlined system controls allow users to easily program automatic operation via a day/night timer. This helps cut energy costs and extend filter life – the GCX Series air purifier can be programmed to clean the air exactly as needed when needed. Also, the included intelligent filter-life monitor precisely forecasts filter replacement based on actual usage and color-coded lights indicate when it's time to change each filter.

Mobility

The built-in guiding handle on top and sturdy casters on the bottom of the GCX Series systems make them easy to roll anywhere they are needed in the environment to provide high-performance air purification. And when not needed, the GCX Series easily rolls into a utility closet or other convenient storage area.

Remote control

A sleek and efficient handheld remote control makes it easy to manage an IQAir GCX Series air purifier from almost anywhere in the environment. Users can set the fan speed and even timer controls without touching the system itself. When not in use the remote control fits easily in the recesses on the top of the system, where it can be found again quickly when needed.

Size Matters

Ordinary HEPA filters
can only filter 0.3 micron particles and larger.

IQAir Logo

IQAir's HyperHEPA
technology filters the
smallest airborne particles
that exist.

More than
90%
of all airborne
particles

0.003 microns

Viruses
Viruses

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
Soot

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
Bacteria

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

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
Pollen

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.

Coarse Particles

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.
