Air is now being recognised as one of the biggest risks in viral transmission.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recognised that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is airborne and can be transmitted via respiratory fluids, which are fine droplets released during respiration.

A single cough or sneeze can expel germs as far as 27 feet at almost 160km an hour. According to Harvard Health, coronavirus in aerosol form, spread through droplets that become airborne when people cough, sneeze, talk, or exhale, can remain in the air for up to three hours.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released guidelines for building owners and managers and building operations specialists to aid in creating safe workplaces. Along with a general inspection for HVAC functionality, the CDC recommends implementing high-efficiency filters, to increase air filtration as much as possible.

Our range of Air Hygiene solutions can filter and remove up to 99.9999% of airborne contaminants and allergens. Breathe easy in your business with a suite of solutions available to suit any requirements and industry type.

Germs typically spread in 3 ways:


  1. Air to Person
  • via airborne respiratory droplets, produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, traveling independently or attaching to dust particles in air currents

    2. Surface to Person

  • via contact with contaminated surfaces

    3. Person to Person

  • via direct contact, or as part of group gatherings at work, school, or home
