AirAware – fume extractor for hobbyist and others everywhere

The hobby that created AirAware
All over the world people work soldering metals of various types. One popular hobby is working with stained glass. When doing tiffany art, colored glass and copper foil are put together with tin/lead solder. The results are beautiful works of art, stained glass windows and attractive lampshades, so called Tiffany lamps in the art nouveau style with meandering patterns, often inspired by nature.

AirAware is a Swedish invention
Eva Anundi is an artist working with glass and teaches courses in stained glass and the Tiffany technique. She has spent countless happy hours in her studio. But breathing the fumes from the solder is dangerous and she began to suffer from headaches, nosebleeds, dizziness and fatigue. ”I looked long and hard for a suitable smoke extractor, but since I could not find anything on the market I decided to make one myself,” says Eva. The prototype was tested by the Swedish Work Environment Authority and Eva was awarded a patent for the invention. AirAware is a small smoke extractor for home use that is both attractive and, above all, functional.

Easy to connect, no exhaust equipment required
AirAware does not need any exhaust equipment other than the room’s own ventilation system. It comes equipped with an electrical socket for easy connection of a soldering iron or other electrical tools. When the AirAware is switched on a red indicator light shows. This helps to increase safety since you won’t forget to turn off the tool.
