The ViralSafe filter makes an ideal choice for spaces where human health is a priority, with special emphasis placed on preventing viruses from spreading. It is recommended for facilities such as hospitals, care homes, hotels, public buildings and office spaces.
All fan coil units in the Block range are equipped with a coated filter as a standard feature. In addition, coated filters are available as an optional accessory for new Box fan coil units, and they can be retrofitted in older units in connection with filter replacement. The operation of ViralSafe-coated filters is based on anti-viral multi-metal hybrid coating. The coating does not cause the filter’s pressure loss to increase.
Coated filters, which are available as an accessory, improve safety for the facility’s users and its maintenance staff.
Studies have shown that ViralSafe filters prevent viruses and particles from spreading through the air in a room, decreasing the airborne transmission of diseases.
The filter is safe for the maintenance staff to replace as viruses and bacteria cannot thrive and grow in the filter. Therefore, the risk of contamination in connection with filter replacement is minimised.
We recommend replacing the filter once a year. Before replacement, the filter can be vacuum-cleaned, depending on its usage and application.
The efficiency of the coating has been tested and proven in studies conducted by different laboratories in Finland and abroad, including the University of Helsinki.
