Features that make the GCX the industry leader.
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 motors available. 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.
Each 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.
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.
The GCX Series can be equipped with optional Mobility Deluxe Casters. 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.
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.

Ordinary HEPA filters
can only filter 0.3 micron particles and larger.
technology filters the
smallest airborne particles
of all airborne
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: 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: 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: 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: 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.
of all airborne
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.
