Air Brilliance optimizes indoor air quality, safety and health by bundling multiple building measures to provide the most cost-effective ways to treat and optimize building environments.
Research Behind Improving Indoor Air Quality
Enhanced Filtration and Ventilation
Proper indoor air filtration, with fresh make up air supply if possible, are recommended for healthy indoor air quality. It’s important to ventilate with fresh air and improve interior air filtering to assure a cleaner building. Airborne transmission of pathogens, dust, and pollen can be minimized by increasing outdoor air ventilation to dilute the concentration of airborne particles or filtering air recirculating in a building. In buildings with mechanical ventilation systems, existing filters can be upgraded to MERV-13 filters with high efficiency ratings. Portable air purifiers with HEPA filtering can provide additional levels of enhanced filtration for your building.
Filtration in building systems can assist in risk mitigation but is not a solution by itself. Air Brilliance provides all assistance for your air filtration needs.
Filtration: 99.97% Removed Particles
High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are most effective at removing small particles. HEPA filters have been shown to remove 99.97 percent of particles of 0.3 microns. Existing HVAC systems in most homes and commercial buildings generally don’t have filters that can filter out virus pathogens.
UV lighting has been used for disinfection and air quality in medical facilities for decades. UV lights can be strong enough to destroy the genetic material in viruses and bacteria. These devices are shown to reduce the incidence of many healthcare associated infections. UVC light has been used extensively for more than 40 years in disinfecting drinking water, waste water, air, and high contact surfaces against a whole suite of pathogens. UV lighting is particularly effective at cleaning hard surfaces in high touch high traffic areas.
UV light can also damage human cells, which is why these products must be installed safely and properly, typically when humans are out of the space, or by using motion sensor shut offs for protection. This is why UV is only one component of a multi-pronged solution, using multiple safety and cleanliness efforts.
UV-C Lights: 99% Bacteria Destroyed
Studies demonstrate that UVC light (207–222 nm) can efficiently inactivate bacteria and virus particles without harm to exposed skin. This is because, due to its strong absorbance in biological materials, UVC light cannot penetrate even the outer (non living) layers of human skin or eye; however, because bacteria and virus particles are of micrometer or smaller dimensions, UVC can penetrate and inactivate them.
Based on the beta-HCoV-OC43 results, continuous far-UVC exposure in occupied public locations at the current regulatory exposure limit (~3 mJ/cm2/hour) would result in ~90% viral inactivation in ~8 minutes, 95% in ~11 minutes, 99% in ~16 minutes and 99.9% inactivation in ~25 minutes. Thus while staying within current regulatory dose limits, low-dose-rate far-UVC exposure can potentially safely provide a major reduction in the ambient level of airborne coronaviruses in occupied public locations.
Air Brilliance also provides fundamental support through comprehensive safety and cleanliness products for your building’s common and high-traffic areas.
- Sanitation: Air Brilliance can provide permanent or portable hand sanitizing stations and hand sanitizer lotions with guidelines for heightened cleaning and hygiene standards
- Building Signage: We can provide signage to optimize safe practices of guests and tenants. Air Brilliance can help facilitating traffic patterns within your building, awareness of reduced elevator capacity and encouragement of stair use, and mask-use encouragement.
- Safety Shields: Protect staff and visitors with clear acrylic plastic protective shields. This allows employees at counters, registers and check in desks to see and interact with clients while providing protection from airborne illness.
