The Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated that the spread of infection from viral, air-borne disease is one of the biggest threats to global public health today. Studies have shown, however, that antiviral air filters can help reduce the impact of such viruses.
Airborne transmission and workplaces
Current evidence suggests that Covid-19 spreads mainly between people in close contact with one another. This is particularly the case in poorly ventilated and/or crowded indoor settings.
The risk of airborne infection has clear implications for workplaces. Businesses have a responsibility to keep their workers, guests and customers safe. There are a number of steps they can take, however providing adequate ventilation and improving air quality is vital.
Natural ventilation by opening doors and windows is ideal but not always possible. Mechanical ventilation systems, such as antiviral air filters, are therefore crucial to stopping the spread of Covid-19.
How antiviral air filter technology works
Antiviral air filters capture airborne particles containing pathogenic viruses and kill them. Furthermore, the antibacterial coating on Nitropep antiviral air filters removes these contaminants from the air, without introducing any new substances to the air.
This antimicrobial coating technology has been scientifically proven to kill 99.999% of SARS-CoV-2 virus particles. It does this in less than one minute, breaking the chain of transmission.
It also kills other coronaviruses such as common flu, Gram +ve and Gram –ve bacteria and various types of fungus.
Installing an antiviral air filter in your workplace
NitroPep’s antiviral air filter can be easily installed into any filtration and air flow control system.
The existing filter is simply replaced with a NitroPip coated filter. This offers businesses a cost-effective method of reducing the risk of disease transmission.
