If you have a solid ceiling and you don't want a ceiling mounted air cleaner to hang down, the FM14 is what you're looking for. The FM-14 Air Cleaner is designed for a flush mount installation in a solid ceiling with 16" on center joists. A 13" depth clearance is required above the ceiling. After the FM-14 smoke eater is secured to joists, a finished molding is recommended for appearance. It is recommended that the air cleaner is installed in areas that do not exceed a 10-foot ceiling height. All filters in the FM-14 commercial smoke eater are accessible from the louvered doors on the face of the system. 1 unit recommended for every approx. 800 square feet.
3-Filter System Provides Excellent Clean Air Results
The FM-14 Flush Mounted Solid Ceiling Smoke Eater uses a powerful blower to draw the air from smoke-filled areas. As the air is drawn through the high-efficiency filter media, 95% of the tobacco smoke particles are removed on each pass. The clean air that is constantly discharged into the area is refreshing and remarkably free of tobacco smoke and other contaminants. This is particularly beneficial in lounges and restaurants because it reduces the need for segregated smoking areas. Practically all of the dust, dirt, pollen and other contaminant particles are removed from the air passing through the air cleaner.
Stage 1 - Pre-Filter
The pre-filter is important because not only does it remove the larger particles, it also helps prolong the life of the HEPA filter in the system. Essentially, the pre-filter is the first line of defense in maintaining your system; therefore promoting better indoor air quality. (12) Polyester pre-filters are included with each system. Pre-filters cannot be washed and must be changed monthly.
Stage 2 - Activated Carbon Filter
Activated Carbon removes odors by absorbing odors, gases & VOC's into the filter. Think of carbon as an "odor sponge". It can hold many times its weight in odor molecules. However, once carbon becomes "saturated" it loses its efficiency. Thus, proper maintenance of the carbon filter is required to keep your environment fresh & clean smelling. (6) Activated Carbon Filters pads are included with each unit. Carbon Filters cannot be washed and should be changed every 2 months.
Stage 3 - HEPA Filter
The HEPA filter removes the very small particles, such as smoke (tobacco, burning wood, oil, rosin), dust mites, spores, mold spores, pollen, spray paint, spray paint dust, ashes, cement dust, auto emissions, textile fibers, fiberglass, hairspray, insecticide dust, copier toner, and most viruses just to name a few. The HEPA filter is extremely important for superior air filtration and when used and maintained properly it will dramatically improve your indoor air quality. We cannot stress enough the importance of the HEPA filter to our system and the fact the HEPA filter must be maintained in order to achieve the maximum results. (1) 12" HEPA Filter is included with each unit. The HEPA filter cannot be washed and should be changed annually.
OPTIONAL - Remote Control
Easily control the settings on your FM-14 Home Smoke Eater with a handy Remote Control Key Fob. If your Smoke Eater is installed in an awkward area or is too high to reach, the remote control is an excellent choice. Each receiver is factory installed and comes with 2 battery-operated remote control key fobs. (Multiple air cleaners require a separate receiver/transmitter for each unit.) Receiver / Transmitter range is approximately 100 feet under normal operating conditions.
