Filtafry consistently enhances its mobile sustainability services with new services and products and is continuing to expand its “Hygiene, disinfection and Covid 19 protection” area of business with “FiltaShield”.
Monthly disinfection sufficient
“This cooperation with New Zealand company Zoono, which specializes in the development, manufacture and global distribution of antimicrobial solutions, allows us to launch our chemical-free, sustainable disinfection service, which eliminates Corona, flu and 99% of all conventional viruses and bacteria in a matter of minutes and provides up to 30 days protection”, says FiltaFry Managing Director Jos van Aalst. “One spraying per month by our trained service technicians is enough to ensure maximum safety for offices, restaurants, sanitary facilities, classrooms and other public spaces in terms of Covid 19”.
Environmentally-friendly, highly effective, for a multitude of applications
Zoono kills germs not with chemicals, but by using physical processes, thereby avoiding the use of dangerous toxins, chemicals and alcohol. Zoono bonds permanently with surfaces and develops a nano-molecular layer of spikes, which forms a barrier against germs. Germs coming into contact with the Zoono layer are virtually impaled and destroyed. This effect facilitates 30 days sustained protection of surfaces.
“Whether in companies, authorities, fitness studios, schools, hotels, in the food service industry or public modes of transport, we want to contribute not only to more safety and to the containment of Corona, but also to relieve the burden on many employees that are now having to use disinfectant themselves on a daily basis”, adds van Aalst.
Temperature screening with Thermo Guard
In addition to the disinfection service, FiltaFry is focusing on temperature screening: the Thermo Guard camera, distributed and installed by FiltaFry and which is already successfully in operation in the “Wunderland Kalkar” adventure park, enables the detection of increased body temperature. The device activates an alarm both visually as well as acoustically when certain limit values are exceeded. This prevents people who have a fever from entering buildings or events. Thermo Guard can scan up to 30 people per second and there is also an alternative for checking the temperature of individuals. No data or images are stored.
