Quality that Australians can trust
Comprehensive Testing for the
Winix Australia-certified air purifiers are designed and tested specifically to suit our Australian conditions, with strict compliance with Australian Industry Standards, as well as other intensive testing:
- HEPA filters (High efficiency particulate air classification, construction & performance) Australian Standard AS 4260
- HEPA filter tests by Clean & Science (Kitech) – minimum filtration of 99.97% at 0.3microns
- Superior air quality tests using ‘dispersed oil particulate’ (DOP) results. Assured Equipment Services (Australia) confirmed outward air no detectable pollutants escaping between filters and machine casing. DOP tests carried in accordance with AS/NZ 60335-2-69.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that can easily enter the air in our home from many commonly used household products. The cause of VOCs commonly found in homes can include: plywood and wood products, carpets, soft furnishings, upholstered furniture, oil & solvent based cleaners, nail polish and other personal care products, adhesives and paints, aerosol sprays and vehicle emissions. Even experts have little knowledge on the potentially long-term & dangerous effects of VOCs on human health.
Volatile organic compound (VOC) testing of Winix Australia-certified air purifiers revealed amazing results with an 80% reduction of total VOCs within one hour of use.
Independent tests carried out in Australia by Nicole Bijlsma (CEO) of the Australian College of Environmental Studies. What a result!

Beware of non-compliant overseas electrical equipment sold online
Australian Government website,
Energy Safe Victoria advises the following:
Be careful when buying electrical equipment online, some of the items for sale on the internet do not meet Australian safety requirements.
Unsafe electrical appliances and equipment are a danger to yourself and others. Be especially careful when buying from overseas suppliers because you may have limited recourse if your product turns out to be non-compliant.
Overseas suppliers offer branded appliances at competitive prices— why should I refrain from buying an overseas model?
Australian electrical safety standards are derived from international electrical safety standards, but there are several variations between the two, for example testing to a voltage for Australian conditions and flammability requirements.
An overseas model may not meet local safety requirements and most likely will not be approved. Additionally, when supplied with a non-compliant plug with or without a travel adaptor, these products pose further risk of injury or death of the user.
It has been observed that most of the suppliers offering electrical equipment online have limited control of the product construction and usually work as an agent. Most agents are unlikely to know if the product has been changed by the wholesaler or manufacturer. They normally do not have provisions to inspect the equipment for quality and compliance with electrical safety requirements.
Non-compliant equipment can cause electrical shock, fire, injury or death.
