Swirl® and the EU energy label for vacuum cleaners!
You are ready with Swirl®!
The maximum of perceptible cleanliness
The Swirl® MicroPor® Plus Anti-Allergen-Filter not only keeps normal house dust safely in the bag, but also allergenic fine dust such as pollen, mould spores, mite faeces and bacteria. For allergy sufferers this means relief from allergenic fine dust in the air.
Doubly safe thanks to the AntiBac System
The new AntiBac System is coloured blue to be clearly recognisable. It reduces the growth of bacteria on different layers of the bag and keeps house dust and allergenic fine dust safely in the bag until it is disposed of.
Swirl® MicoPor® Plus quality certified by TÜV
TÜV NORD, an independent test laboratory, tested and confirmed the filtration of fine dust, allergens and germs and also the dust absorption efficiency of using Swirl® MicroPor® Plus vacuum cleaner bags.This also applies to low wattage devices in accordance with EU regulation No. 666/2013-I.
For a long useful operating life
All Swirl® vacuum cleaner bags in MicroPor® quality are equipped with volume dust storage, which prevents the bag becoming blocked and supports a long useful operating life.
To protect the environment
Swirl® vacuum cleaner bags with the Pro Nature label are made of 40% recycled material and renewable raw materials. In this way Swirl makes a contribution to protecting the environment and conserving resources.
The EU rule has provided mandatory regulations for the energy efficiency of vacuum cleaners since 01 September 2014. From 01 September 2017 the second stage comes into effect. Vacuum cleaners may now only have a maximum of 900 watts of power.
No problem: Swirl® vacuum cleaner bags are of course suitable for appliances with low wattage power. This has been confirmed and certified by TÜV NORD an independent test laboratory.
In the following we explain the EU energy label which comes into effect from September 2017:
1 Energy efficiency class
This is calculated using a formula consisting of the estimated annual energy consumption of the average household and the dust absorption of the appliance at the nozzle. This is then given a mark on a scale of A (best performance) to G.
2 Ø annual energy consumption
This value gives the annual energy consumption of the average househould. It assumes 50 vacuumings per year on an area of 87 square metres. The average annual energy consumption must not exceed 62 kWh per year.
This shows the noise level or volume of the vacuum cleaner on a carpet in dB(A).
4 Dust absorption on hard floors
This shows the cleaning performance of the vacuum cleaner on hard floors. The dust absorption is measured on a standardized hard floor. The minimal cleaning performance is 90%.
5 Dust absorption on carpets
This shows the cleaning performance of the vacuum cleaner on carpets. The dust absorption is measured on a standardized carpet. The minimal cleaning performance is 70%.
6 Dust emission
This shows how clean the exhaust air is from the vacuum cleaner during vacuuming.
