Meet our Founder and President

Brad Carr is president and founder of SonicAire. He started the company because of his passion for providing the best engineering solution to a business problem; he saw that no one had a way to keep their plants safe from fugitive dust/lint fires.

Leveraging his 40 years in commercial air engineering and international sales, Carr decided to develop a solution to take care of that. He and his engineers developed a revolutionary new design approach called BarrierAire™ technology. This new engineering design is the key to helping clients maintain continuous compliance with government regulations and standards in all countries and more important, keep their employees safe from explosions and fires stemming from buildup of dust and lint.

This design innovation was acknowledged by Cintas at a National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Symposium. He is a member of NFPA.


Carr is a noted authority on safety issues with fugitive combustible dust. He has been invited to educate professionals on practical ways to consider for effective dust control. This includes the national conference for the NWPCA, The Southeast Recycling Conference (SERC), Timber Processing and Energy Expo, Bioenergy and PELICE, EWTA, GEAPS Exchange, Forest Products and Machinery Expo and National Safety Council Congress and Expo. He has also authored many articles on different ways to make sure plants are safe from the dangers of combustible dust and lint. He has written a series of four articles for Industrial Safety and Health News (ISHN), as well as articles in American Laundry News, Pallet Central, The Engineered Wood Journal, Recycling Today, and Pallet Enterprise.
