CleanAir Spaces has developed a state-of-the-art technology which helps make indoor spaces healthier and safer and can play an important role in the response to COVID-19, as well as creating healthier working and visiting environments in the longer term.
The DuctFIT Solution, which will shortly be installed in premises across the UK, treats indoor air and surfaces by producing active ions which circulate continuously and actively to remove pollutants, viruses, bacteria and other pathogens. The technology can be inexpensively and easily installed, by being attached to existing ducts or fitted in a stand-alone unit.
This contrasts with traditional air filtration which passively filters air only when it that passes through on a cyclical basis and does not continuously ionise surfaces. In the case of viruses, such as COVID-19, the technology doesn’t passively wait for the virus to circulate through the system, as with traditional HEPA filters or Air Conditioning units, but actively goes to it and attaches around the lipid and protein layers of the virus, ultimately killing it.
Indoor air quality historically has often been taken for granted, with more attention falling upon external air quality and pollution. But this approach ignores the impact that better internal air quality can have on health and well-being. CleanAir Spaces brings a new approach to proactively protecting indoor spaces and preventing virus and bacteria cells from impacting those in a room, resulting in long-term health benefits for those in the indoor environment. Our devices can also be linked to sensors which can demonstrate visually the impact they are having on the internal environment compared to outside air quality.
CleanAir Spaces has already installed their technology in a host of popular retailers and food chains, including Zara, Loewe and Burger King with a goal of expanding into further retail units in the UK. As the retail industry seeks solutions to help to re-open, CleanAir Spaces’ technology offers improved safety and confidence to both shop staff and customers to support the return to work and the return to high streets and shopping centres across the UK.
CleanAir Spaces has worked over the last five years to build out a major presence in Asia, with over 28 million square metres of installations fitted out, improving air quality working with CBRE, JLL, Zara, Microsoft and Bayer among others. The technology has been certified and tested by independent laboratories in the US and Asia. More recently a new test was conducted in Europe at the University of Granada Hospital demonstrating a 99.75% efficiency at eliminating H1N1 and over 99.99% efficiency at eliminating other viruses such as Enterovirus and Coronavirus both in the air and on surfaces.
The CleanAir Spaces technology is now protecting staff and patients at several hospitals and residences, including the Virgen de Las Nieves in Granada, Spain. Indeed, following an increase in cases of COVID-19 at facilities across Granada, ICU Capacity was expanded to a converted Chapel, which CleanAir Spaces installed at short notice.
Launching in the UK this week, all types of businesses will now be able to install this state-of-the-art technology to provide support for their staff and customers.
Pablo Fernandez, chief executive of CleanAir Spaces, added: “The technology boosts employee welfare and wellbeing, reduces sickness rates and this year we returned to Spain to further research into combating viral loads of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) with our air treatment and surface disinfection system called ductFIT Solution. Studies have found that the ductFIT technology can reduce the viral load of Covid-19. We feel it is important to make this technology available to the UK market as it responds to the longer-term impacts of COVID-19 but also helping to improve the long-term impacts of air quality indoors.”
Steve Skerrett, director of Biotech Group, the UK representative for CleanAir Spaces, said: “We are delighted to be able to bring the CleanAir Spaces technology to the UK marketplace after building out a major presence in Asia over recent years with over 28 million square metres fitted out improving air quality for Google, Microsoft, and IHG Group in the Middle East and Europe. We are committed to playing a key role in helping the UK to respond and reopen following the recent lockdowns in the UK. This technology can directly help to rebuild our economy by protecting customers, employees and residents whilst they are indoors and give managers a better insight into how air quality is managed in their businesses.”
