High Volume Smoke Removal and Odor Control at a Low Price
The LAFC-RC2-S is a new product offering from LakeAir. The RC2 models use dual reverse curved blowers from the famous German fan manufacturer Zeil-Abegg These blowers offer quiet operation with a lot of air movement. The electrostatic filter is made of high-quality materials. You can expect 20+ years of service from these filters. We use small tolerances and lower voltage to provide superior air filtration with LOW ozone emissions. At a starting price of $2495.00, the LAFC-RC2-S is a mid-priced commercial smoke eater with high-end performance.
How It Works
The powerful dual E Cube blowers pull dirty air up through the MERV 2 Prefilter. This filter removes large debris and allows longer periods between cleaning of the main filter. The dirty air enters the ionizing section of the electrostatic cell where the dirt and smoke particles receive an electrical charge. The charged particles are then pulled through the narrowly placed collecting plates. The electrically charged particles crash into the collecting plates and are trapped there. Particle free air then passes through the activated carbon filter. The billions of pores in the carbon bed attract odorous gases and VOCs and hold them there. The now clean air is gently tumbled in the room below.
Low Draft Design
One of the biggest complaints about ceiling mounted air purifiers is the drafts that are caused. We have designed the LAFC-RC2 units to tumble the air out of the unit. Two sets of louvers on the exhaust end of the LAFC allows you to exercise even greater control of the airflow from it. Most commercial units blow the cleaned air straight down on the occupants below. A cold draft from above makes for a less than ideal experience in most cases.
External or Onboard Speed Control
The variable speed control allows you to adjust the LAFC-RC2 to the exact amount of air purification and sound level desired. Customers tell us that on low and medium they don’t even hear the smoke eater running. Turbo mode creates a sound level of 56 dB(A), which is much lower than most commercial units. Customers love the higher level of smoke removal.
The variable speed control can be mounted in the unit or be located in a wall switch. The wiring is easy but requires a 5 conductor cable. This cable is available from LakeAir. The unit uses a simple 115-volt line and neutral along with 3 low voltage wires for speed control. We include complete wiring instructions and are available for any question you might have at 800-558-9436.
Drop In Ceiling Grid
The most popular way to mount any LAFC unit is to install it into a 2 x 4 ceiling grid. The LAFC is nearly invisible when mounted this way. The grid mount also reduces the noise level of the unit.
Another popular option is to hang the LAFC from chains or cables. This works well in rooms with tin or high ceilings. The sides of LAFC can be boxed in easily to create a beautiful addition to your space.
Flush to Ceiling Mount
We recently introduced the flush mount kits # 300333 & 300019. These mounts allow you to mount your LAFC directly to any ceiling.
