Air purifiers went from something nice to have in many situations to something necessary if you want to keep your facilities open and operating at full capacity, and a large part of this is due to COVID.
Without air purifiers, you will put your clients in harm’s way, you will expose the patients in your medical establishment to a higher risk, and you won’t be able to gain the trust of the parents of your students driving down attendance in your school. These are just a few examples of how air purifiers can be essential to operate successfully during Coronavirus.
COVID, Its Transmission, and Why It is Crippling the World
There’s a lot of misunderstanding over how the entire world was engulfed in a pandemic that essentially stopped many crucial aspects of our lives for a better part of two years. The SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus variant that caused the pandemic) seems less dangerous than other viruses that spread worldwide, like Ebola which has a much higher mortality rate.
So, how come it became the worst pandemic the world has experienced in about a century? The primary reason has been how easily transmittable is this virus. SARS-COV-2 is airborne and something as innocent as speaking to someone without a mask or shaking their hands might transmit the virus. This combination of ease of transmission and considerable lethality has made SARS-COV-2 so problematic.
To make your establishment safer, you either need to reduce the lethality of SARS-COV-2 or you need to reduce its transmission. The former is impossible for any normal establishment. You can’t inoculate people, provide medical services, etc. But reducing the transmission of SARS-COV-2 is quite viable, especially with high-quality air purifiers.
The easiest way to make your establishment safer is to reduce the transmission rate of SARS-COV-2. It is possible, especially with high-quality air purifiers.
How AIR8 Purifiers Help Keep Your Establishment Secure and Safe from COVID 19
COVID particles are airborne, and they can travel up to 2 metres and stay suspended for hours in the air, and even regular masks and safety protections don’t offer adequate protection against the virus in many instances. This is due to how tiny SARS-COV-2 particles are. They are about 0.1 to 0.2 microns, and this passes through some masks, regular air cleaners, etc. These solutions are still effective to a degree because the virus often travels on water droplets and other larger particles, which are more easily filtered out. This is why we’ve seen mask adoption has some limited success in slowing down the spread of the virus.
Sounds complicated, right? Thankfully, here at AIR8, we have the perfect solution for you: air purifiers that improve the indoor air quality, keep the air fresh and filter out COVID 19 particles. This means a safer environment in your establishment, lower risks for truly vulnerable people, and the restoration of trust in the safety and reliability of the establishment. All of this is possible with our HEPA-filter-equipped air purifiers that are extremely effective in removing small particles, and we’ll discuss it in detail in the section below.
Are you aware of the recommended air change rates that are applicable in your space?
As we mentioned above, it is impossible for regular filters to catch really small particles, and the aerosols that carry the virus usually pass through them, and this is why most governments and health experts agree that regular air purifiers, while they help to a small degree, are largely ineffective.
But the HEPA filter is special – it is specially designed to successfully remove really small microns. According to a NASA study, an air purifier equipped with the filter can remove up to 99.7% of fine particles that are 0.1 microns or smaller.
In fact, to fully appreciate how effective this filter is, you need to learn the context it was invented in. The filter was invented during WW2 to help protect against chemical gas attacks. This means that the life of an army man was dependent almost entirely on the success or failure of the filter, and the scientists that invented it made sure it was up to the task.
Today, we’re not using air purifiers equipped with a HEPA filter in the context of war, but in many instances, it is still a life or death situation, and you need to make the right decision for your establishment.
Our devices have from 4 up to 6 filtration stages depending on the model, and the HEPA filter is only one of them. We’ve focused solely on it so far because it is the primary one responsible for largely reducing the risk of COVID 19, but this doesn’t mean the other filtering stages don’t all have unique advantages that really make the air purifiers a good investment beyond the pandemic.
Aside from AIR8 products all having excellent filtration processes, they also have many other attractive features that make purchasing/leasing one a very attractive prospect, especially for COVID protection. We’ll go over some of the most prominent reasons below.
We recognize that purchase decisions aren’t made solely based on the quality of the products, but, rather, there are many accompanying services that many business clients find invaluable, and in this section, we’ll go through some of the most prominent ones:
Although every industry likely benefits from adding air purifiers to combat the novel coronavirus, we also recognize that in some rare instances, the costs probably don’t justify the investment.
But, in the overwhelming majority of cases, the increase in consumer trust and the perception of your organization should be a major boon to your business, and over the last year, we’ve worked with many businesses and organizations from a vibrant range of industries, and we’ve seen how their businesses have boomed thanks to the air purifiers. Below, we’ll go over some of the industries where we believe our products will offer the best value for businesses:
