Foreverbreathe is now the better way – install it for health, install it for life.

Consider these facts

  • The overwhelming majority of chemicals in built environments remain untested.
  • The vogue strategy in the building industry of airtight shells and increasingly chemically-based construction materials, is broadly accepted throughout the industry. 
  • An ever increasing volume of nasty chemical encapsulated interior products, decorative coatings and high moisture levels are trapped within the airtight shell to form what is known as a chemical cocktail effect. An effect currently mitigated by energy sapping mechanical air movement systems and calculations that determine the total area included for opening windows.
  • Indoor air quality has been estimated to be an average of 5-10 times more unhealthy than outside air (EPA, WHO).
  • Several recent surveys estimate that children now, on average, spend 90% of their time indoors. 
  • Building failures are on the increase with wall solutions failing within warranty periods.
  • The airtight strategy and the value structure that supports it should be earnestly re-examined. There is a better way.
