STRATACLEAN IQ Air Filtration System

The quiet Armstrong STRATACLEAN IQ Air Filtration System captures airborne contaminants, allergens, and particulates to create cleaner, healthier, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) for every space using proven MERV 13 filtration*.

Key Features & Performance

  • MERV 13 filtration with 3 fan speeds to optimize air changes per hour for your space
  • In-ceiling air cleaning works up to 35% more effectively than floor-based air cleaning and is part of a long-term strategy to improve indoor air quality**
  • Quiet operation – as low as 29 dBA***
  • 24" x 24" design allows for easy installation in any suspended ceiling system – easy to incorporate in new or retrofit in existing spaces, with no HVAC system integration required
  • Energy efficient design uses only 15 watts per hour – less than a traditional incandescent light bulb***
  • Integrates with occupancy sensors to save energy and maximize clean air while the space is occupied
  • One unit filters the air for a 1,000 SF space every hour (1 filter = 1 Air Change per Hour (ACH) for a 1,000 SF space; up to 2 ACH can be achieved at a higher setting)
  • In-room air filtration recommended by the EPA Clean Air in Buildings Challenge
  • Can provide up to 2 additional ACH in a 1,000 SF room.

    * MERV 13 filter is at least 85% efficient at capturing particles in 1 µm to 3 µm size range. Source < >
    ** A simulation study performed by JB&B showed that for equivalent cubic feet per minute (CFM), in-ceiling air purification delivered up to 35% lower particle concentration than a floor-based air purification unit across all sampled inhalation zones.
    *** Operating at 150 CFM fan speed
Water Repellent

Product resists water for 15 minutes allowing proper cleaning for infection control.

Soil Resistance

Excellent resistance to dirt and/or grease for lasting value and performance.

Impact Resistance

Surface impact based on the Striking Ball Impact Test, modified ASTM D1037 procedure.

Scratch Resistance

Excellent resistance to surface scratching, scuffing or chipping as per Hess Rake Test.


Offers superior wash resistance without compromising panel finish integrity, using a washability tester as per ATSM D4828.


Withstands up to 150 scrub cycles using a scrubbability tester as per ATSM 02486.
