The AIRO is what sets the AIR3 apart from the competition

The technical aspects and innovations that went into the design and manufacturing of AIR 3 acoustic meeting pods are legion.

Apart from the customisability of both the exterior and interior of the meeting pods – in terms of material colour and visibility strips on the glass – and the myriad of technological features, like the fact that you are virtually soundproof inside the pod whilst still having access to the Internet through integrated power and data modules, the AIR 3 acoustic meeting pod also keeps you safe…

The design of the meeting pods are enhanced with the addition of AIRO, a revolutionary and internationally patented roof system which features an advanced fire safety system for sprinklered office environments.

With built-in smoke and heat sensors, the AIRO roof is designed to have numerous folding panels, which fold open automatically within eight seconds when a fire is detected.

The six step fail safe system is designed to cut power to the pods the moment smoke or fire is detected, but luckily the actuators don’t need power to open the roof in this instance, but rather rely on a mechanical spring release.

By opening the roof electronically while it is in use, the AIRO also allows for the release of a heat build up and an instantaneous burst of that all too important fresh air!

The AIRO is available in al the AIR 3 models which that whatever your needs are, you can still enjoy the benefits of the AIRO.

Some Alternative Uses For The Office Meeting Pod

We’ve shown you the technical side of the Air 3 – the way the roof cleverly opens up when the built in sensors detect smoke or high temperatures, the way the special glass and paneling absorb sound almost entirely, the way data and power modules are fitted to the meeting pods, etcetera etcetera etcetera…


But of course their uses don’t stop at having private conversations or confidential meetings in them… Here are a couple of alternative uses for the Air 3 range:


1. Hide from your boss. The Air 3 is customizable with visibility stripes of your choice, and if you intend on hiding, we’d advise getting them as thick as possible!


2. Vent. Yeah, that’s right, get it all off your chest…the meeting pods are after all called “Acoustic Meeting Pods”…


3. Run laps. The round and lozenge meeting pods are perfect for a spot of secluded exercise – just move the furniture to the middle and you can run to your heart’s content. Who knows, you might be the next Bolt!


4. Break records! See how many people you can squeeze into the Mini Pod (Phone Booth) – 25’s the record…


5. Team building. See number four.


6. Catch up on Game of Thrones. So you’ve added those (un)visibility strips, the booth is pretty much soundproof, it has data modules and a projector and you’re a season behind in G.O.T… Go on, no one will ever know!


Air 20 Minipod: The Phone Booth Re-incarnated

The telephone booth is dead – ripped from the ground, hacked to bits by mysterious artists, or modernised to serve as charging points for it’s great, great grandchild, the mobile telephone. In Germany, they get sent here to peacefully rust away the remainder of their days in the company other chatterboxes: Bti4T3xCQAIIqD7 copy

All, however is not lost… Through the Airea, the phone booth lived on, albeit in the office environment. And in turn the Airea Phone Booth evolved into the ultra modern, uber-chic Air 20 and 21 Minipod.

Being only a foot or so wider than the Airea Phone Booth, the new Air 20 Minipod is the ideal solution for businesses with limited space or that need a few separate spaces where people can work in peace and quiet.

It also comes with all the mod cons you’d expect in the year 2014: the Air 21 has a table and power and data modules which means you can happily sit and type on your computer – while linked to the Internet – or plug in your iPad while you read the latest instalment of Après Planet…
