By some estimates, up to 30 percent of commercial buildings exhibit 'sick building' syndrome. Substandard indoor air quality can hamper staff productivity, disrupt clean room operation or lead to litigation. Working to solve these issues are nearly two million professionals in the U.S. Fluke introduced a line of indoor air quality (IAQ) test tools during 2005, with the goal of providing HVAC, building maintenance and IAQ professionals with a comprehensive portfolio of precision instruments for troubleshooting and maintaining indoor air quality. Fluke IAQ tools will help these professionals achieve outstanding performance by delivering the accuracy, reliability, toughness, safety, usability and value for which Fluke tools are famous.
