Keeping your employees, customers, patients, and students safe, healthy, and free of Covid-19 and other airborne diseases is the most important reason to address indoor air quality right now.
Providing peace of mind that you have taken extra steps to keep them safe from airborne diseases will create dedicated employees, loyal customers, satisfied patients, and supportive students, parents, and teachers.
The products that we recommend uses patented UV-C light air purification technology to reduce levels of viruses, bacteria and fungi by automatically and continuously treating the air to create healthier environments.
As independent consultants, we have found UV Angel Air™ to be the best product available for disinfecting indoor air in most settings. So we will focus here on UV Angel Air.
However, we also believe that Sterilyft™, which uses the same underlying technology, is the best product specifically designed and engineered for elevator cars.
Elevators can be a significant air quality choke point in multi-story buildings.
Simple – UV Angel Air operates without interruption 24/7/365 and does not interfere with current staff workflow
Seamless – Designed with today’s critical architectural and clinical considerations at the forefront, the system integrates a sealed UV-C air treatment chamber into existing or new construction in-ceiling lighting
Effective – Using the latest in advanced UV-C light purification technology, laboratory studies have shown effective removal of bacteria, fungi and viruses from the air
UV Angel uses years of advanced research and development in ultraviolet light and IOT enabled technologies to create a truly modern and effective air treatment system:
• Using patented UV-C treatment technology, air is quietly drawn into a sealed UV-C air chamber with a series of fans and filters
• Air is circulated through the UV-C air chamber where it is treated with an enclosed high intensity UV-C light to inactivate bacteria, fungi and viruses in the air
• Treated air is then returned to the room creating a healthier environment
• UV Angel Air is unobtrusive, works continuously, quietly, and with the in-ceiling design, maintains valuable floor space
Scientists now believe that over 95% of all Covid-19 infections are transmitted through indoor air. Outdoor air and indoor surfaces are no longer considered to be major threats.
Many other viruses, including rhinoviruses (colds) and flu viruses are also transmitted this way. Disease-causing bacteria and allergens (including pollen) are spread through the air as well.
Tiny droplets are generated when we breathe, cough, sneeze, sing—even when we yawn. The larger droplets will fall out of the air quickly due to gravity. But tiny aerosolized droplets can hang in the air for up to eight hours.
The tiny aerosolized droplets that cause airborne disease are so small they can pass right through paper and cloth masks. Masks help with the larger droplets at close range but are not a complete solution for indoor air safety.
While many people have been vaccinated for Covid-19, some can’t and some won’t take the shots. Vaccines never promised 100% protection. The latest reports tell us that vaccine efficacy may be lower for some newer variants.
People are the source of most airborne pathogens, so we need protection wherever multiple people congregate. Ideally we would like to eliminate the pathogens directly at their source and in real time.
People are the source, but you can’t spray chemicals or “shine” germicidal UVC when people are present. Ionization, oxidation, and electrostatic technologies are of questionable efficacy and independent research says they create additional health hazards.
Viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens can be eliminated safely and effectively—at their source and in real time—with people in the room.
No harmful chemicals, poisonous ozone, or dangerous ionizers, oxidizers, or electrostatic sprayers need to be used.
UV Angel has conducted two separate third party laboratory tests against surrogate pathogens including Escherichia coli (gram-negative), Staphylococcus aureus (gram positive), Cladosporium cladosporioides (fungus spore formed) and MS2 Bacteriophage (MS2) (virus surrogate).
These tests conclusively support UV Angel Air claims to treat bacteria, fungi and viruses in the air.
University studies have shown that germicidal UV-C is effective at treating:
The UV Angel Air results showed elimination rates up to 99.99%
Several provisions outlined in new legislation allow schools and universities, health care providers and small businesses to tackle air quality improvement projects with minimal financial impact.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020 and the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 (CRRSAA) are designed to provide rapid and direct economic support for those who are eligible.
The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Funds are a subset of the CARES Act that specifically address indoor air quality in schools.
FEMA is currently authorized to pay for the entire cost of improving indoor air quality for those deemed to be “Critical Services.” This includes K-12 schools, colleges, police, fire, ambulance, and medical facilities including hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation facilities.
Until 12/31/21, FEMA will also pay for 100% of a project for not-for-profit “Non-critical Services” including assisted living, houses of worship, libraries, museums, performing arts centers, and many more.
Unlike the new, untested products flooding the market today, UV Angel’s technology is backed by years of clinical research and efficacy testing. The company got its start developing solutions that meet the stringent standards of the healthcare industry, and as such, the company is uniquely positioned to provide the very best in safe, effective, and scalable pathogen control technology.
UV Angel’s products have been developed by a team of world-class experts, including professionals in engineering, public health, product design, IT, AI, and more.
The team is lead by Chief Medical Affairs & Science Officer Dr. Linda D. Lee, MBA, CIC. Dr. Lee also serves as Administrative Facilities Manager at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, the top rated cancer hospital in the US. Her primary role at MD Anderson is infection management and control in the facility. She is a Certified Indoor Air Quality Manager and serves as a Committee Chair for ASHRAE.
UV Angel’s Clinical Advisory Board includes scientists and healthcare professionals associated with institutions including The University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins University, Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Stanford Healthcare.
