What We Use - PROTECT - BioTouch

What, it's permanent? We get asked so many questions about our products that we have developed and their uses, especially when it comes to our very own BioTouch. Bio-Touch antimicrobial treatment is approved by the EPA and the CDC as a non-toxic disinfectant available in the industry. A single application provides a permanent durable antimicrobial barrier on all surfaces and textiles. When applied it instantly creates a covalent bond, very much like ‘superglue’ and will only

What We Use - PB2012 - KILL

We keep getting asked about our Products and what we use. Obviously we want to take the time to explain about what we use and how it all works, I mean, imagine telling someone that you are creating a cleaner and safer environment without any toxic chemicals? So we thought we would give you some insights into all of them starting with our very own PB2012 which was created by Dr Chris Pearson and Gordon Bruce in 2012. PB2012 and is a synthetic copy of a natural fungicide, viric

“You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,”

Yesterday we found out that the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, knew back as early as February that the Covid-19 Virus was Airborne and he was also aware of its dangers. If only people knew earlier. If only people knew there are solutions to help prevent and stop this Airborne threat. There are. Our NASA developed Purifiers reduce up to 99.99% of viruses, including COVID-19, toxins, allergens and bacteria by utilising several innovative technologies w

Airborne transmission is being underestimated, warn experts...

'“We appeal to the medical community and to the relevant national and international bodies to recognise the potential for airborne spread of covid-19,” wrote the scientists, who include physicians, epidemiologists, and experts in environmental health and building design.' An interesting read by Owen Dyer in the British Medial Journal about the Microscopic respiratory droplets generated by talking and breathing can hover in the air for minutes or hours and drift many metres ho

Skene House becomes the first in the Hospitality Sector to implement Room To Breathe System...

How To Make Indoor Air Safer

'If you’re waiting for a break from bad news about COVID, don’t hold your breath — or, actually, do hold your breath.' Great insights from Kayleigh Rogers at from FiveThirtyEight discussing what experts have understood for months that COVID-19, can be spread by hitching a ride inside large respiratory droplets that are expelled when someone coughs, sneezes or talks. Kayleigh, in her article, also addresses, more importantly, on how to make Indoor Air Safer. Read the full arti

Most air conditioning systems don't protect against the coronavirus...

“Ventilation is the key control point for an airborne virus,” said Dr. Julian Tang, one of the authors of the paper. “Based on multiple studies done by the authors, we believe that optimized ventilation is the way to move forward, removing the virus from the air before people inhale it. We think that’s one of the main ways it’s transmitted.” Interesting insights from Adrianna Rodriguez highlighting in USA Today that as temperatures rise and the air becomes more humid, cases o

What You Should Know About COVID-19, Air Conditioning And Indoor Air Quality

'Now the WHO says smaller particles that are spread by talking or breathing are a problem indoors.' Interesting read in wbur about Air Conditioning and it's impact on Indoor Air Quality with Covid-19 virus. In it Shelly Miller, professor of environmental engineering who studies indoor air quality at the University of Colorado at Boulder, says she wishes that the WHO had recognised the “major risk” of indoor spread earlier when scientists asked the agency to consider the probl

Going back to Work, will you be PROTECTED!

Airborne Coronavirus spread: Five things to know

"For spaces where ventilation cannot be increased, we recommend portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter air cleaners or possibly ultraviolet (UV) germicidal lights at the high end of need. We do not recommend other types of air cleaners." With the World Health Organization (WHO) now acknowledging that Coronavirus can be transmitted through the air, Saba Aziz at Al Jazeera highlights 'five things we need to know'.

'Evidence emerging' of airborne Covid-19 spread, says WHO

Today the World Health Organization acknowledged that there is now emerging evidence that the coronavirus can be spread through the air. The airborne transmission could easily be spread in crowded, closed or poorly ventilated areas, posing risks to those exposed. The WHO has so far said that the virus is transmitted through droplets when people cough or sneeze. This new evidence has a significant effect on the current government guidelines for indoor spaces. In an open letter

239 Experts With One Big Claim: The Coronavirus Is Airborne

'The coronavirus is finding new victims worldwide, in bars and restaurants, offices, markets and casinos, giving rise to frightening clusters of infection that increasingly confirm what many scientists have been saying for months: The virus lingers in the air indoors, infecting those nearby.'

There’s a key way to curb the spread of COVID-19. But no one is talking about it...

'Scientists now concur that COVID-19 spreads primarily in droplets through the air—be it from coughing or just talking—so public health officials recommend that people wear masks and face shields, and maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet. But many researchers believe that these guidelines don’t go far enough. To truly help protect people from transmitting COVID-19, we need to fix the air we breathe.'

Indoor Air Quality... it just wont go away!

Evaluating Indoor Air Quality, before the Hospitality industry reopens in July as the COVID-19 lockdown eases, is the first step to take before reopening as laid out in the Government’s new guidance. “Checking whether you need to service or adjust ventilation systems, for example so that they do not automatically reduce ventilation levels due to lower than normal occupancy levels.” This guidance is designed to ensure time spent in pubs, bars and restaurants is as safe as poss
