11 July 2022

VERTECO, the region’s leading experts in smart washroom technologies, water conservation solutions, and smart water management, have confirmed their position as the region’s distributor of the BioZone AirCare (AC) device.

The innovative product, which will be placed in busy public washrooms, uses simple ultraviolet (UV) light technology to kill airborne respiratory viruses and bacteria. The system offers a natural solution to chemical-resistant infectious diseases and has demonstrated in numerous studies to be more than 99.99% effective at inactivating SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that causes COVID-19 – in under one second.

As well as helping to combat the spread of COVID-19 and other airborne viruses, bacteria, and fungi, the BioZone AC improves air quality and removes bad odours. The device works by drawing air in and treating it with both UV disinfection and oxidation processes, achieving a 70% reduction in both surface and airborne bacteria in even the busiest of spaces. 

Regional distribution of the BioZone AC marks the latest addition to VERTECO’s award-winning portfolio of Smart Washroom solutions. Their range of sensor-driven 3D IoT products can be found in washrooms across the Middle East, improving sanitization, hygiene, and overall customer washroom experience. As always, sustainability is key for VERTECO, and with products additional environmental and cost-effective benefits – it costs less to run than a low energy lightbulb and reduces the need for harsh cleaning chemicals – the product is a natural fit for the company.

BioZone is a leading manufacturer in HVAC UV light solutions for the disinfection of air and surfaces, and their technology is used by thousands of businesses around the world. Their devices can be found in washrooms, corridors, waste disposal areas, hotel lobbies, and many other transient areas with high footfall. The world’s busiest airports, including Dubai, Heathrow and Hong Kong, as well as major shopping centers, hotel groups and metro systems, have all benefitted from improved sanitation, reduced odors, and reduced cleaning requirements as a result.

David King, Managing Director of VERTECO, said, “We are very pleased to partner with BioZone and distribute the AC device regionally. Investing in innovation that helps addresses sustainability, customer satisfaction, and hygiene, at the same time, is at the heart of our offering. As COVID continues to be a part of our lives, the cleanliness of public washrooms in particular remains paramount. The BioZone AC is capable of achieving disinfection rates almost below the level of detection – a major step in our efforts to stop the spread of airborne viruses and keeping our communities safe and well.”

Qasim Arshad, EMEA Sales and Marketing Director, Biozone Scientific Group, said, “BioZone has vast experience in delivering innovative and effective Biological Defense systems.
