Ozone disinfectant solution to help with Covid-19 compliance
19 August 2020
Electronic production-equipment manufacturer Altus Group continues to expand its safety offering with the Safeway range of ozone technology for disinfecting spaces and people.
The Safeway range includes the ‘Cabin’, ‘Tunnel’ and ‘Places’ solutions, each suited to different working environments. The products use ozone as the only disinfectant and are said to be free of any other added chemicals. According to Altus, ozone is produced either from air or water and provides safe and 100% natural disinfection.
Group director Joe Booth says: “The landscape of manufacturing is rapidly changing to cope with the new pressures of the coronavirus pandemic. Ozone has been proved to be effective as a disinfectant of surfaces such as plastic, fabrics, rubber and wood, making it perfect for use within the workplace. Ozone gas generators are also an ideal end-of-play disinfectant solution for entire offices with almost zero manual intervention required, aside from setting a timer.
“The stats on ozone are impressive. It is extremely effective as a disinfectant when used even in low concentrations and is 51% more powerful than chlorine in eliminating bacteria. The water ozonation system used in Safeway solutions is extremely safe. When applied in accordance with WHO recommendations, the system eliminates all surface viruses, causing no irritation to the eyes or skin and not affecting clothing and footwear.”
Safeway ‘Places’ is described as a small portable unit that works well in shared workspaces, to avoid manually cleaning rooms from top to bottom. ‘Cabin’ is a private, full-body disinfection cabin for people, also incorporating a hand-disinfection dispenser and a temperature measurement facility. The ‘Tunnel’ works just like the Cabin but has been designed for areas with high footfall – for example, public locations – where several people can be disinfected simultaneously.
