PAE 11 air cooler

The 3-in-1 solution for throughout the year: Air cooler, fan and humidifier – all in one device

Enjoy natural cooling and a fresh breeze

Whether at home or in the office – cope with blistering heat in spring and summer by simply creating a refreshing cool breeze with the PAE 11 evaporation air cooler, in a natural way and without any chemical cooling agents. Even better: As required, the compact 3-in-1 combination device works as fan, air cooler and humidifier

Perfect climate through evaporation cooling, ventilation and humidification

Out with the oppressive summer heat, in with chilly refreshing air and a pleasant room climate for breathing freely. Too easy with the reliable honeycomb technology that creates natural evaporation. The air cooler comes equipped with a 3-litre water tank and creates an air flow rate of 90 m³ per hour. With a humidification performance of max. 0.46 litres per hour, the device is able to produce fresh and cool air with only one tank filling for more than 6 hours of continuous operation. A filling level indicator on the device always keeps you informed about the current water tank content. Upon request, the cooling effect can be even further intensified – just use the freezer packs or ice cubes included in the scope of delivery.

However, the PAE 11 can be used as proper fan without the air cooling function being activated. The fan power can be adjusted in three stages. The horizontal discharge direction can be flexibly set by means of the ventilation flaps. In order to distribute the cooling air current throughout the room, you can activate the additional swing mode function of the vertical air flaps. The integrated natural wind mode gently rises and diminishes the air current which creates the impression of a pleasant sea breeze. The easily removable air filter absorbs pieces of dust, fluff and animal hair from the room air.

The PAE 11 can also be highly recommended for humidification. During the cold season, the device helps to fight heating air that became too dry. This way, your respiratory tract and mucous membranes will be saved from drying out and from being more prone to viruses and pathogens.

To ensure that you have a good night's rest during night-time, the device can also be switched into an ultra-silent night mode. Needless to say – all functions can be adjusted either using the control panel at the device or the infrared remote control. In addition, the air cooler comes equipped with a timer function that enables a scheduled switch-off. The air cooler PAE 11 is ideally suited for being used in rooms of up to 15 m² or 37 m³ and comes with an attractive and modern look. Thanks to its stable carrying handle and the smooth-running wheels below, the device can easily and flexibly be transported and placed as desired into any room.

Increasing the humidity level to 50 % reduces the risk of transmission of viruses

Medical specialists have evaluated research findings relating to the resistance of viruses (e.g. SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV or SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19), influenza) to air humidity. These findings have revealed that the humidity level has a crucial impact on the infectivity of germ droplets. Dry room air with a relative humidity content of less than 40 % lets tiny droplets infected with influenza or cold viruses dry up. This preserves pathogens so that they remain infectious for a very long time. In the optimum relative humidity range between 40 and 60 % aerosols only shrink so far that the salt concentration in the aerosol core increases, causing the germs and microorganisms contained to be killed. This minimizes the risk of an infection with influenza and cold viruses.

Medical specialists emphasize that we are able to reduce the risk of infection by increasing the humidity level in buildings. In this way, increasing the humidity level to approx. 50 % by humidification will reduce the risk of transmission. Moreover, the humidified air improves the body's defence situation by more efficient cleaning of the air passages and an improved immune defence. In modern buildings with a watertight building envelope, central heating and ventilation systems, these limit values can often not be complied with in everyday life without active humidification. This is where devices with a humidification function come in to provide assistance.

PAE 11: Comfort is major priority

In spite of its compact dimensions, the 3-in-1 air cooler PAE 11 combines numerous comfort functions in its elegant housing:

Swing function

The automatic swing function provides an air circulation that spreads in the entire room. The swing function makes the vertical air flaps swing (oscillate) automatically from left to right, which results in the blown-out air distributing optimally throughout the room. Besides, the horizontal height position at which the air current is blown out can be adjusted manually.

Gentle natural wind mode

In the natural wind mode the PAE 11 provides cool air with a rising and diminishing fan intensity, comparable to a refreshing sea breeze at the beach. The smooth gusts of wind are especially pleasant on the skin and provide a good alternative to the permanent air current.

Timer function

The practical 8-hour timer allows to switch the device off individually after a preset time. In this way you ensure that, for example in the office, the air cooler will switch off automatically when office hours are over.

Night mode

To ensure that you can go to sleep and have a good night's rest, the air cooler is provided with a night mode and an ultra-silent operation. In this way you go to sleep with a pleasant air cooling and your body will refresh optimally from the struggles of the day even in the hottest summer nights. Tip: If required, the timer can be additionally used to switch off the device automatically during the night.

Remote control

Comfortably control the PAE 11 from your seat. All functions and settings can also be carried out via remote control and without leaving your chair.

Air filter for animal hair, dust and fluff in the room air

The air filter integrated into the rear of the device absorbs animal hair, fluff and dust from the room air, Allowing allergy sufferers and people with a sensitive respiratory tract to breathe easily and freely. The easily removable filter can be cleaned quickly by wiping or rinsing it.

Natural cooling principle

In contrast to air conditioners, air coolers do not use any chemical refrigerants. The cooling effect is generated in a natural manner. Moreover, neither an exhaust air hose nor any elaborate installations are required.

A mobile air cooler works on the principle of natural evaporation cooling. As you probably know from your own experience, blowing on moist skin creates an instant feeling of refreshment as the evaporation process withdraws warmth. Air coolers work in the same way: in the interior of the air cooler there is a water-soaked filter mat using. The warm air is directed from the rear of the device through the wet filter mat and in passing is cooled down due to the evaporation effect. The now colder air is then blown back into the room by the fan.

Can be operated all year round – air cooler in the summer, humidifier in the winter

With the PAE 11 you can enjoy mobile feel-good climate throughout the year. We recommend using the slim air cooler in space-saving design throughout the year rather than parking it in a storeroom when the summer ends. In the spring and late summer its 3 fan stages can provide a fresh breeze so that you can enjoy the cooling effect of the cold evaporation.

In autumn and winter the device is furthermore well-suited as an effective humidifier, in order to create a more pleasant room climate. Since dry heated air can irritate the respiratory tract, dry out the skin and cause red eyes. Moreover, the multiplication of viruses within the room air is reduced at a humidity level of 50 %. By using a humidifier you provide for a sufficient humidity level and in this way can improve your own well-being in sticky, overheated rooms as well as prevent colds and virus infections.

With the 3-in-1 air cooler PAE 11 you benefit from pleasant air cooling, refreshing ventilation and agreeable humidification. For a perfect climate throughout the year!


Continuous fresh water supply to ensure a healthy air quality.

To automatically keep the water storage tank as clean as on the first day, we recommend using a SecoSan-Stick which keeps the water permanently clean, clear and free from germs or unpleasant odours. The unique feature of SecoSan is its antimicrobial surface with mobile silver ions, which inhibit bacteria and germs upon contact and thus prevent their reproduction. The entirely self-dosing SecoSan ion reservoir keeps the water demonstrably free from germs. The stick thus guarantees clean water for up to 6 months even if the water is changed or consumed daily.

Thermohygrometer BZ20M with air cooler PAE 11

Using air coolers as humidifiers during the wintertime

Air coolers are most efficient in rooms filled with dry air. Just like humidifiers these devices operate based on the evaporation principle, i.e. they directly supply the air with cool moisture. This means that for process-related reasons the humidity level in the room is increased perceptibly. During the winter this increase of humidity is beneficial to the mucous membranes. As a result you might be able to avoid catching a cold that is largely caused by the dry heated air. The practical and optically attractive thermohygrometer BZ20M in cross-needle design shows you at a glance when the humidity level is in the optimum range.
