RECOGNISING WASHROOM RISKSWhere do odours originate?Why can cleaning be ineffective?Why do risks still remain?What are the health hazards?What image is projected?
WASHROOM HYGIENE PROBLEMS Odours and Infections are caused byBacteria, Viruses, Moulds & Fungi in the Air andon Surfaces Toilet flushing releases harmful bacteria intothe air and onto surfaces with aerosol forceand volume In 8 hours, a single bacteria cell can multiplyto 8 million Aerosol effect Cleaning, disinfecting and masking cannot Washrooms are a primaryremove the problem source of infections including: •Salmonella & E Coli Poor ventilation and poor personal hygiene •Rhinovirus & Norovirusspread the problem outside the washroom •Influenza •Bronco-Pneumonia Increased Sickness and Absenteeism •Hepatitis A Suggests indifferent management
Unseen Washroom Problems Resolved Air Steril disinfects the air and all exposed surfaces 24/7
BENEFITS SUMMARY Removes odours by treating the root cause Destroys bacteria, VOCs, Viruses, Mould and Fungi Cleans deep into fabrics Reduces chemical usage Eliminates need for masking agents Provides fresh clean air Reduces absenteeism and cross infection Treats contamination in the air and all exposed surfaces Air does not need to pass through the unit to be purified
Why Alternative Solutions FailSprays/Fragrances Does it kill Bacteria? No, (Some propellants contain an element of anti bacterial agents). Is it working all the time? No, can not operate continuously. Why doesn’t it work? When the perfume is still airborne it can effectively hide some odours, but this is intermittent the bacteria and health hazards remain and odours invariably prevail.Ozone Generators Does it kill Bacteria? Yes, kills both Bacteria & Viruses Is it working all the time? No, can not operate continuously, high levels of Ozone are unpleasant and a health hazard. Why doesn’t it work? Bacteria and viruses continue to multiply during the down time, meaning odours remain. UV light Machines Does it kill Bacteria? Yes, Kills Bacteria & Viruses Is it working all the time? Yes, It can operate continuously. Why doesn’t it Work? Air has to pass over the UV light to kill the micro-organisms and it takes so long for all the air to pass through the machine the bacteria multiply faster than all the washroom air can be processed, odours remain
Air Steril utilises up to 5 independent technologies which can be tailored adjusted to meet end user needs : Internal Technologies 1. Germicidal Irradiation 2. Dual Waveband UV Technology Transmitted Technologies 3. Superoxide Ions 4. Triatomic Oxygen 5. Hyrdoxyl Radicals 6. Plasma Quatro Air Steril Technologies Eliminate Bacteria 180 times faster than UV light machines and 2000 times faster than an Ozone Generator
Air Steril utilises up to 5 independent technologies which can be adjusted to meet end user needs :Internal Technologies1. Germicidal Irradiation2. Dual Waveband UV Technology1. UV Germicidal Irradiation kills microorganisms bydisrupting their DNA and removing their reproductivecapabilities.2. Air Steril UV lamps uses two wavebands. Oneoperates at 185nm generating ozone which kills themicroorganisms. The other operates at 254nm andgenerates highly reactive but short lived hydroxylradicals which reduces the ozone before it leaves theunit as an element in the plasma quatro.
Air Steril utilises up to 5 independent technologies which can be adjusted to meet end user needs :Transmitted Technologies3. Superoxide Ions4. Triatomic Oxygen/Hydroxyl Radicals5. Plasma Quatro3. Superoxide Ions work by electrically charging air contaminates as small as 0.01 microns and causing them to form clusters, thus assisting removal from the air and aiding the other processes.4. Triatomic Oxygen (Ozone) is excited oxygen atoms produced via a catalyst in the lamp (Quartz). Triatomic Oxygen, will eliminate bacteria, viruses, fungi and VOC s in the air and on exposed surfaces as it leaves the unit with the air flow. Hydroxyl Radicals oxidise bacteria and viruses in the air operating with a “cascade effect”5. Plasma Quatro is the gas energized by the high intensity UV light, it leaves the unit with the airflow and consists of a mixture of activated oxygen, triatomic oxygen and superoxide ions. These interact with each other giving a very efficient purification of the air and all exposed surfaces. Many times more efficient than ozone or UV light working alone.
