Preventing the spread of the virus has proven to be a challenge. Tech companies are rapidly designing products to combat this challenge and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in any way possible.

Experts advocate for social distancing to curb its spread, but it may not be possible in some places. An example is in commercial elevators where passengers share a confined area. Cleaning the touchpoints is easy enough, but disinfecting the air is challenging. This is where technology comes to the rescue.

Air Purifying and Disinfecting Technology
Many elevator tech innovators, such as CASPR (Clean Air & Surface Pathogen Reduction), have expanded their touch-free disinfection technology to elevators which usually have constricted spaces with poor, limited airflow. They have developed an effective product against bacteria, viruses, mold, odors, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

How Does it Work?
The continuous disinfectant technology covers humidity in the air from H2O (water) to H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide). The product uses special UV lighting and a photocatalyst to create the advanced oxidation process.

What are the Benefits?
The major benefit of this innovative new tech comes from its ability to continuously purify and disinfect the air in the elevator to reduce disease transmission. This continually reduces air pollution and illness-causing pathogens on surfaces.

  1. Makes Elevators Safer Even After Covid-19 Ends – Proper airflow in commercial elevators is a challenge. Poor airflow increases the risk of contracting COVID-19 and other airborne diseases. Purifying and disinfecting the air in elevators significantly reduces this risk.
  2. Easy to Install – It is installed between the car top elevator and ceiling, a process that is generally hassle-free.
  3. Silent Operation – It has moving parts or fans since it uses natural airflow within the elevator, making it silent.
