HEPA Filter Comparison

Portable and Sturdy

To support such a robust system the MAX-Guard needs a serious frame and body. While other manufacturers are going light weight and cheaper construction, LakeAir is going for a heavy duty system that looks great and will last decades. The frame is all 14 gauge American steel. The grills are 14 gauge laser cut metal with a high quality powder coat. The unit also mixes in vinyl coated steel for an appealing  appearance. It’s ok to use this air purifier as an end table. The frame is built to withstand up to 400 pounds. Each caster is rated at 150 pounds. This unit is heavy and won’t be knocked over if its bumped into. 

Dual Blower Design

Like many of the LakeAir products the MAX-Guard uses (2) 830 CFM blowers to pull dirty air through the commercial HEPA filter. The sheer power of the unit will allow most consumers to run at 1/2 speed or less and still have double the air purification of competitor models. The variable speed control allows you to set the unit to a level of sound that works well in the room.  

Easy to Repair

The MAX-Guard is a generational product and will likely need some repair in its long life time. The blowers have an expected life cycle of 60,000 hours or more. That’s almost 7 years of non stop running. If you turn your unit off occasionally, the blowers are likely to last even longer. 10 years down the road if you need to repair your unit it can be done by the average home owner. We don’t use circuit boards. We us simple switches and user friendly couplers made to make the rare repair a snap.

2.5 pounds of Virgin Coconut Carbon

The MAX Guard uses a specially designed carbon filter with 2 chambers to remove odors caused by smoke and other common odor causing agents. This design pulls air through the filter making the odorous gasses come into direct contact with the odor absorbing media. If you want a good understanding of how our carbon filters  act as a smoke odor eliminator, you will find a complete explanation on our smoke eater page.
