How to prevent contagion by the coronavirus in offices and work centers?

When a year has passed since the first cases of coronavirus were detected in Spain, we already know what the greatest risks of contagion are. Thus, it is estimated that 75% are produced by aerosols, particles less than 100 microns in diameter that can stay suspended in the air for hours.

Despite the various measures that the authorities have adopted (capacity limitation, mask, safety distance, etc.), the possibility of transmission continues to exist. Thus, although social precaution is essential, on a daily basis people who do not live together continue to coincide in places with high traffic, such as work, leisure, health or sport spaces, among others.

One of the solutions to effectively protect health are air purifiers such as Respirae, which have become a very important element to be taken into account in the occupational risk prevention policy of companies by effectively minimizing non-contagion only. due to the coronavirus but also due to the rest of infectious microorganisms that can lead to illness and sickness.

Designed specifically during the Covid-19 pandemic, Respirae is a disinfectant purifier that, using UV-C ultraviolet light (no filters and no ozone), destroys viruses, bacteria, fungi and other pathogenic microorganisms in the air.

It is recommended for all types of spaces, such as offices, consultations, shops, bars, restaurants, classrooms, gymnasiums … It has a representation area of ​​50 square meters, with an efficiency greater than 99, 99%, which has been tested and certified by the Department of Immunology, Microbiology and Parasitology of the Faculty of Medicine and Nursing of the University of the Basque Country / EHU.

Latest generation technology, made in Spain

Respirae, the biosafety division of Basque company Arregui, works with short-wave ultraviolet (UV-C) light to destroy viruses the size of the coronavirus (0.12 microns). The device has clean and safe technology that can be used in the presence of people, animals or plants, because the ultraviolet light does not radiate outside the device, so it is not harmful for living things.

Unlike purifying filters (such as HEPA, activated carbon, etc.), which physically capture pollutants and must be renewed every few months, ultraviolet purifiers remove pollutants and do not require any maintenance. Ozone generators, on the other hand, remove pollutants from the air, but they should be used by professionals as it is a dangerous chemical that cannot be used in the presence of people.

Efficient, economical and decorative

The Respirae UV-C lamp has an estimated lifespan of 9,000 hours, which equates to 3-4 years of continuous operation during normal office or office hours. After this time, all you have to do is change the lamp. As there is a shortage of filters, it does not require maintenance and the periodic expense of replacing filters every few months is avoided.

It is very easy to use, as it has a single on / off button on the back. The indicator light on the front lights up to indicate that it is operational. At the same time, its minimalist design and the fact that it is available in 3 finishes (white, black, wood) allows it to easily integrate into any decoration.
