Most major global economies were hard-hit during the COVID-19 pandemic, shining a light on the health of our indoor air, particularly in public spaces. For many nations, re-opening brick-and-mortar retail stores safely and efficiently has been a priority, and while basic safety measures have been put in place, providing clean air to customers and shop assistants requires more than simple air purification — it needs to be prioritized to protect the health of communities and the local economy.
It’s time that retailers and businesses start to treat the air in their spaces with the same level of care as the hygiene of surfaces and the maintenance of equipment — and provide customers and staff with the reassurance that the air in their stores is safe, healthy, and welcoming.

Shopping malls and retail stores experience high volumes of customers who can be ill or asymptomatic, and therefore vectors for the spread of viruses. VIRUSKILLER™ decontaminates the air, providing real-time protection against airborne viruses and bacteria.
While surfaces and equipment are routinely disinfected, the cleanliness of indoor air in retail stores is crucial. VIRUSKILLER™ is designed for decontaminating the air in retail stores to protect customers and staff from airborne pathogens.
Shopping malls are generally located in urban areas close to roads and other industries, where VOCs, fumes, and other outdoor air pollutants infiltrate the indoor air. VIRUSKILLER™ neutralizes harmful gases in a single air pass, providing clean indoor air.
Amidst a global pandemic, customers are reassured to know that retail stores have invested in clean air technology. VIRUSKILLER™ helps protect the health of staff and customers while they browse and purchase essential items.
All-day protection from airborne contaminants, viruses, pathogens, and allergens throughout shopping malls and retail stores provides a healthy environment not only for customers, but also safer and more favourable working conditions for shop assistants and retail staff.
Amidst a global pandemic, shop assistants and customers are required to wear masks and social distance, while strict policies mean shopping carts and equipment are regularly sanitized. VIRUSKILLER™ decontaminates common areas in retail stores, providing safe, clean air for shop assistants and customers.
