The heat recovery systems Dosolair, Adsolair, Adconair, and the Menerga run-around coil system are now certified according to DIN EN 1946:4 (12/2008), after a test and examination phase lasting from April of 2016 to January of 2017. The systems are certified for indoor installation, as well as for outdoor installation in their weatherproof models. The indoor versions are designed for use in room classes up to the highest level: Ia.

The standard DIN EN 1946:4 (12/2008) applies to HVAC units in healthcare buildings. Testing according to this standard primarily checks components for conformity: such as special dampers, filters, and heat exchangers. In a general sense, the hygienic stipulations of this standard cover system properties such as the following: the smoothness of inner unit surfaces, the resistance of system materials to disinfectants, as well as the ease of complete and flawless cleaning of the entire air handling unit.

Testing has been performed by SYNLAB hygienic institute of Essen, Germany. SYNLAB is a leading international institute concerned with environment, food and beverage, and hygiene standards. Its services include testing to verify that HVAC systems con-form to the pertinent stipulations concerning hygiene standards.
