Get premium indoor air safety for retail stores

Real-time protection for business owners, customers, and retail workers from airborne viruses, pathogens, and allergens.

Protect the Health of the Economy

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.

Win back the trust of customers with indoor air safety.

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.

Prevent cross-infection

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.

Welcome to the family

We’re spending more time inside, but instead of being safe from pollutants, we’re more exposed than ever. Indoor air is on average two to five times more polluted than the air outside4 — yet despite greater awareness of airborne diseases, we continue to share the same contaminated air.

Embrace clean air technology and bring fresh air back inside and join the community that is committed to turning the tables on poor indoor air.
