March 23, 2020 (VICTORIA, BC) – Communicable disease and viruses put millions of lives at risk every year, disrupting businesses and homes. While hand washing and surface disinfecting are important, until now the remaining infection channel has not been adequately addressed: indoor air. GROK Energy Services provides active airborne virus control with proven GROK Air Sterilization Systems, which continuously sterilize indoor air and exposed surfaces, killing viruses, other pathogens, and mould. Businesses and clinics can now proactively reduce the spread of disease in public spaces to protect workers and clients, while homeowners can help keep their families safe.
Air Sterilization Fights Virus Transmission
Many pathogens spread through airborne transmission. A study completed by the US National Institute of health concluded that many viruses can remain airborne for up to 3 hours. Surface cleaning cannot guarantee 100% disinfection, nor prevent airborne spread of disease. GROK Air Sterilization systems continuously kill pathogens in indoor air and on exposed surfaces, pervasively. GROK Air Sterilization systems are not a replacement for recommended hand washing, surface cleaning, or social distancing practices – rather, the technology provides an effective, additional defense shield.
Sterilization Keeps Air Clean
GROK Air Sterilization systems feature patented Needle Point Bi-Polar Ionization (NPBI) technology. NPBI allows existing air filtration systems to capture more particles, increasing the efficiency of the HVAC filtration. In 2019, Canada’s National Research Council measured a 23% reduction in fine airborne particulate as a result of using GROK Air Sterilization technology, providing substantial health benefits. The technology also consumes very little energy, so can be active 24-hours a day, with minimal impact on energy bills.
Proven Effective Against Pathogens
GROK Air Sterilization systems are proven to attack and kill viruses and bacteria. Independent testing by ELITE Labs proved that NPBI Air Sterilization substantially reduced populations of each pathogen tested, including C. Difficile, Staphylococcus, MRSA, E. Coli, and Legionella.
Testing is presently underway on a human Coronavirus, and SARS-CoV-2 will be tested when available. GROK Air Sterilization technology has already been proven to kill the most aggressive pathogens, so GROK Energy Services is confident the technology will provide active airborne virus control against SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19. Test results will be shared when complete.
GROK Air Sterilization systems are available NOW from GROK Energy Services, including full installation services.
