Air Filtration System

Please Note:

Thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and their Resilient Communities Fund, YPT now uses state of the art air filtration equipment throughout our theatres, lobbies, studios and office spaces. New studies have shown that COVID-19 can be spread by a building’s air ventilation system. Therefore, YPT is pleased to assure its patrons that our HVAC systems have been fully upgraded to help prevent this possibility. Air filtration occurring immediately in the spaces where people are congregating helps to ensure YPT’s spaces are safer and everyone can breathe a little easier.

YPT’s equipment includes three stages of air filtration technology: HEPA filters that capture particles in the air both large and microscopic (such as allergens or mold), carbon filters to help trap or eliminate chemical compounds (such as paint fumes, smoke and other pollutants), as well as a UV-C lamp that kills or inactivates airborne bacteria and viruses (like COVID-19).
