Office air quality has always been important to employees. Before the coronavirus, employees frequently worried that unwell employees would spread a common cold, the flu, or a stomach virus throughout the office. Today the level of anxiety about the spread of illness could be paralyzing for your employees.
We’ve all been reviewing the steps needed to open our offices and safely bring employees back. Office air quality should be at the top of the list.
We can help make employees feel safer at work, relieving that fear and anxiety with air purification solutions. There are lots of options out there, but they’re not all equal.
Wouldn’t your team feel safer at work with an air cleaning solution that meets general surgery guidelines? This equipment doesn’t simply filter pollutants – it actually destroys them.
Net Trade is the Corporate Trade Partner for Surgically Clean Air (SCA). SCA is the leading standalone clean air solution for commercial space and medical practices. You will be in good company. These portable air cleaning systems protect the offices of over 20,000 dental professionals, over a dozen Major League Baseball and NHL teams, leading law firms and financial services companies, and millions of square feet of Walmart warehouse space.
Our medical-grade clean air solutions rely on HEPA-Rx filters as well as a six-stage filtration system captures dust particles, pollen, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), mold, allergens, viruses, odors (like formaldehyde and smoke), bio-aerosols, and many other pollutants commonly found in the air within offices, retail spaces and other workplaces.
In addition to removing harmful particles form the air, a negative ion generator makes indoor feel more pure, clean and energized, which may help combat fatigue. We refer to this as the “casino effect”.
- Small only 33.5” high and 12” wide
- Quiet; 50db at normal operation
- Multiple units deployed throughout your space
- No building involvement needed
- Flexible as each unit can be deployed as needed based on your office and people configuration
- Our proprietary HEPA-rx filters meet the guidelines for general surgery applications (ANSI/ASHRAE standard 52.2.2007)
As businesses reopen, more steps must be taken to keep everyone safe, beyond social distancing and mask-wearing. We know those work, but there’s more we can and should do. For example, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently outlined the following guidelines for malls to reopen:
- New York malls will need high quality air systems that can filter out the coronavirus before they will be allowed to reopen.
- High efficiency particle air filters, or HEPA filters, have been shown to help reduce the presence of Covid-19 in the air, according to a presentation from Cuomo.
Shouldn’t your employees benefit from the same protection?
You might think the filters in your AC system will be enough to protect you and your staff, but you’re probably wrong. Generally, office HVAC Systems do not offer enough protection: they are designed to maintain the indoor air temperature at comfortable levels, not to clean the air. Management companies and the big HVAC contractors may offer to add filter systems, but it is unlikely to reach the level of a HEPA filter and the time and expense will be passed on to all the tenants.
You can do better. Ease your employees’ anxiety and help them feel safer as they return to work. A Surgically Clean Air system, along with appropriate distancing, hand washing and masks, can help keep your team and their families safer.
