GC™ Series


Advanced, full-spectrum air filtration

Powerful protection against gases, chemicals, odours and particles in the air

Proven against ultrafine particles

Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns and make up about 90% of all airborne particles from combustion from vehicle exhaust, factory emissions, and cooking. They have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer.

IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration in the GC Series is proven and certified to filter at least 95% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.

#1 Rated for smoke and tobacco control

The GC Series excels at reducing airborne contaminants from smoke, including secondhand smoke that increases the risk of asthma, lung cancer, and heart disease in non-smokers. Tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 different chemicals, 60 of which are known carcinogens. These various elements are a mix of liquids, gases, and solid particles. The IQAir GC MultiGas offers unrivaled protection against both particles and gases.

Designed to deliver the purest air possible

The IQAir GC Series air purifier features four stages of superior filtration, exclusive 3D UltraSeal design, and 320-degree airflow:

  1. HyperHEPA particle filtration features a powerful HyperHEPA pre-filter that removes particles of all sizes, including ultrafine particles.
  2. Cartridge-based activated carbon adsorption is used to filter Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which are responsible for odours.
  3. Cartridge-based chemisorption destroys harmful chemicals, such as formaldehyde, by an oxidation process inside a chemically active alumina pellet.
  4. Post-filter sleeve wraps each gas cartridge to prevent media dust from being released.

Four models for maximum effectiveness

Specialised configurations of gas-phase media provide maximum control for specific air quality problems:

  • GC VOC (for control of volatile organic compounds, solvents, etc.)
  • GC MultiGas (for control of wide range of gaseous organic and inorganic chemicals)
  • GC ChemiSorber (for control of formaldehyde, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, etc.)
  • GC AM (for control of ammonia and ammonia compounds)

The H11 HyperHEPA Pre-Filter additionally provides medical-grade filtration of particles of all sizes.

100% Healthy technology

The unrivaled performance of IQAir air filtration technology is achieved using only safe, proven, mechanical filtration technology, without generating dangerous ions, ozone or UV. Mechanical filters such as IQAir's particle filters remove particles from the air by safely capturing them on filter materials. 

Best media, superior filtration

The IQAir GC Series features the highest-quality filter media available in each of four configurations.

The IQAir GC Series features the highest-quality filter media available in each of four configurations. The extraordinary performance of the IQAir GC Series begins with the highest quality, exceptionally porous, activated bituminous-coal carbon in its gas-phase filtration cartridges, blended with chemisorbers that target volatile organic compounds in the air, including formaldehyde. The IQAir GC Series also features pelletised aluminum oxide impregnated with potassium permanganate to filter a wide spectrum of gases, odours and chemicals.

Certified performance

IQAir looks beyond theoretical claims, testing the performance of each individual GC Series system at the factory to ensure that it meets our strict specifications. The results of the tests are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance, which is included with every air purifier. No GC Series air purifier will be shipped from the factory unless it is certified to provide a minimum of 99% efficiency against particles.
