Room air filtered from viruses in hotels and conference centres
With high-frequency air purification back to the fully booked hotel instead of enduring governmental occupancy restrictions
The hotel and restaurants sectors still are particularly hit very hard by the current Coronavirus impacts. Nearly all hotels had to be closed first, and will probably be suffering the longest time from the impacts after the pandemic. As long as the fear of an infection with the Coronavirus is higher than the usual convenience provided by the hotel sector, many guests will postpone any avoidable overnight stays and rearrange events that should have been celebrated in the ball room or ceremonial hall, e.g. weddings or anniversary celebrations. Another problem are the revenues from renting seminar, conference and meeting rooms. These will only have reached the level before the crisis if the hotel can guarantee a maximum protection of infection to its guests and business customers. This maximum protection is about "real protection" that exceeds the restrictions of the respective counties and the recommendations of industry associations.
The safe way out of the crisis: High-frequency air purification – for the protection of employees and guests
There is still great fear of the Coronavirus. Many beds, seminar and conference rooms stay empty even after lockdown. The fear of the guests is justified. Experts and virologists agree with each other: The hygiene concepts elaborated by the associations do not provide full-scale protection of the employees and guests. An elementary component is missing: the effective protection of aerosols carrying viruses in the room air!
50 % of all infections are spread through the room air
Only around 10 percent of Corona infections are spread by direct contact or smear infections. Half of all infections can be traced back to infectious aerosols which have been breathed in. These aerosols invisibly float around in areas with a lot of public traffic where they are inhaled.
Knowing this, a guest will hardly feel good in a closed room with several persons, no matter how sumptuous the late riser breakfast may be. Irrespective of how the area for wellness and fitness is designed, or how unique cappuccinos or award-winning cocktails of the club lounge are. Even if special offers are available for the overnight stay or for the event rooms, conference or business meeting rooms that can be booked in the hotel: beds and event rooms will remain empty if the infection protection is missing!
But beds and event rooms don't have to stay empty!
As experienced hotelier, you have already geared and adapted all facilities and services to the customer's wishes in an optimal way for a long time. Now the demands regarding the maximum possible infection protection are also high and have to be implemented. You will achieve these demands with an invaluable service: Health protection!
The room air is cleaned with the flexible TAC V+ as effectively as air purification is carried out in hygiene-sensitive hospital operation theatres. Made possible by the extremely high air flow rate of 1,600 m³/hour and an innovative H14 HEPA thermal decontamination function. This way, even large hotel areas can be permanently kept free from germs and viruses. The room air of all commonly used areas is sucked in near the ground, cleaned from bacteria and viruses by means of the HEPA filter and finally released into the room as germ-free air. The result is that suddenly occurring accumulations of aerosol are diluted with clean air in the area of your head to such an extent that the virus load and risk of infection will be significantly reduced!
Visible health protection from invisible dangers of infection
Clear to see that results will be remarkable! With its appealing and modern device design, the TAC V+ harmoniously blends in with the existing interior concept. The customers are able to see what would otherwise remain invisible – that the hotel offers a permanent protection from invisible viruses in the air!
Hotel areas where the TAC V+ permanently provides for virus-free air:
- Entrance halls, check-ins and check-out counters
- Restaurant, hotel bar, hotel lounge
- Fitness area, beauty and massage areas
- Event rooms (e.g. for weddings and anniversaries) and conference rooms (e.g. for seminars, company meetings or incentives)
High-frequency air purification protects both employees and guests
If the room air is kept free from germs and viruses, the airborne risk of infection will be minimised likewise. Trotec high-frequency air cleaners such as the TAC V+ are exactly designed to perform this task for they efficiently and quickly reduce the intensity and time aerosol accumulations and suspended matter stay in closed rooms, creating feel-good areas with an extraordinarily reduced risk of infection for persons and guests.
Directly at the installation site, the mobile air cleaner TAC V+ creates a "clean zone area", flooded with purified air and filtered from viruses. Within this zone, the surrounding air nearly completely stays free of airborne germs and viruses because the TAC V+ is able to take in large volumes of contaminated room air and to carry out effective H14 HEPA filtration. Moreover, the device is able to purify room air zones in a flexibly adjustable manner with clean air that has been filtered from viruses and aerosol particles.
Effective against bacteria and virus accumulations
Trotec high-frequency air cleaners are equipped with HEPA filters of class H14 which filter out more than 99.995 % of all fine suspended particles larger than 0.1 µm with a transmittance of only 0.005 %. Or in other words: No more than five of 100,000 particles pass the H14 filter. Thanks to this unique feature, these kinds of high-performance filters are also used in operation theatres or comparable hygienically sensitive areas in order to produce clean air. This way, you create optimum conditions to keep room air and breathing air in reception areas, dinging and conference rooms free from germs and viruses in times of spreading epidemics.
Well-known viral strains such as SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV or Covid-19 have a particle size of 0.005 to 0.1 µm. Most of the time, they form accumulations with other particles (such as saliva or suspended matter) which increases their size up to 0.4 µm or 0.5 µm. These accumulations are referred to as germs and will be filtered out reliably by the Trotec H14 air cleaning filters.
All H14 HEPA filters by Trotec fulfil the highest quality standards that are obligatory for bacteria and virus filtration.
- Each H14 high-performance filter is tested individually and is assigned its respective serial number
- The test report is enclosed as certificate in duplicate with each H14 filter
- The original test certificate can be filed with the documents for the device. If required, the copy can be attached to the air cleaning device.
- HEPA high-performance H14 filters are tested in compliance with EN 1822 and EN 60335-2-69.
Also suitable for any TAC air cleaner with H13 filter
You can also insert a H14 HEPA filter by Trotec into your TAC air cleaner if you already possess a TAC device. The H14 filters are available as an accessory, e.g. for the professional air cleaners TAC 3000, TAC 5000 or TAC 6500. Simply replace the H13 filter in the filter compartment with a H14 HEPA filter.
High performance air cleaner TAC V+. Effective protection against aerosols and viruses in the air.
This product video will tell you all about the virus protection effect, the function and the advantages of the TAC V+ high-performance air purifier from Trotec. According to the current state of science, the coronavirus is transmitted in over 80% of cases by aerosols in the room air. The aerosols contaminated with viruses are produced when speaking, coughing or sneezing and often remain in the room air for a very long time. Inhaling the infectious aerosols can infect people in the room with pathogens. Trotec offers the solution for this: The TAC V+ high-performance air purifier filters the air with an efficiency of 99.995%, which corresponds to the air quality of operating rooms. The room air contaminated with aerosols is diluted, pressed to the floor, sucked in and filtered. In the vicinity of the air purifier, aerosol and virus-free clean air zones are created. The viruses bound in the filter are automatically killed by heat, so that the filter remains hygienically clean for a long time. By using the TAC V+ air purifier from Trotec, you will protect your employees, customers and guests. Ideal for, for example, restaurants, fitness studios, hotels, open-plan offices, medical practices, shops, and supermarkets, etc. So that finally more people, customers and visitors can stay indoors again without the risk of infection.
Effective air purification technology for clean breathing air
The aerosol accumulations are invisible to the naked eye and spread several metres into the room, flowing through interior spaces as swathes of fog do – see the following real-time video: The TAC V+ sucks in large volumes of potentially contaminated air near the ground, filters out nearly all viruses and suspended matter within minutes and generates clean air filtered from viruses which is guided back into the room. The result is that suddenly occurring accumulations of aerosol are diluted with clean air in your breathing area to such an extent that virus load and risk of infection will be significantly reduced! Just as the room is entirely foggy at the start of the video to be completely fog-free after the treatment in the end, the TAC V+ can also free your room air from particulate matter, fine particulates or aerosol accumulations carrying viruses.
Aerosols and the corona virus: This is how the virus spreads through the indoor air
While larger droplets do not fly far when speaking and quickly sink to the ground, the smaller and lighter aerosols float in the air for several hours and are distributed throughout the room. The TAC V + air purifier offers reliable protection against infectious aerosol particles. The room air is cleaned with high frequency and infectious viruses are filtered out and inactivated in the new HEPA filter.
Our recommendation for virus filtration in hotels and conference centres
The TAC V+ or TES 200 Trotec air cleaners for purifying areas
The vertical construction of the mobile high-frequency air cleaners TAC V+ and TES 200 serves for establishing particularly efficient "clean zone areas" with surrounding air filtered from viruses. Setting up several devices with some distance in-between will provide areas filled with clean air serving as both passage zones or treatment or waiting zones with a low aerosol concentration.
High-frequency air purification eradicates accumulations of aerosol particles in minutes
By deliberately positioning several high-frequency air cleaners of type TAC V+ or TES 200, patients and personnel will be way better protected from suddenly appearing droplets and accumulations of aerosol particles. These will be filtered out within the shortest time due to the high air change rate. Besides, areas will be permanently filled with large amounts of virus-free room air which will significantly reduce the risk of infection in the "clean zone area".
H14 special filter with thermal self-regeneration function
This air cleaning performance is made possible by a synchronous system of efficient prefiltering and final particulate air filtration, provided by the integrated H14 HEPA filter by Trotec in a special heat-resistant version. This special filter is integrated in the devices TAC V+ and TES 200 and is heated up in intervals which will inactivate all viruses remaining in the filter, serving for a 100 % decontamination of the filter. The thermal self-regeneration function of the H14 special filter is unique in the world and exclusively available at Trotec!
TAC V+ and TES 200 are part of the same assembly and therefore provide the identical fan performance and HEPA air purification function. The TES 200 can, however, also be used for combined room heating, thermal decontamination of rooms and surfaces and thermal pest control. The reason for this are the additionally integrated, powerful electric heating module and enhanced programming options for various air treatment scenarios.
Thanks to their combined technology of filter and decontamination techniques which are unique in the world, TAC V+ and TES 200 provide safety by reducing an airborne risk of infection in all areas with a lot of public traffic – ideally suited for highly frequented entrance halls, check-ins, fitness and beauty offers and conference and seminar rooms.
It is you who decides which safety level is best suited for your requirements:
The higher the air circulation and the respective air change rate (ACH), the lower is the time viruses stay in the room air, which results in the infection risk decreasing. The number of the air change rate is also the factor for determining the working radius of each high-frequency air cleaner.
5 ACH achieve basic protection. However, we recommend using air change rates between 10 and 20 ACH for fully occupied rooms in order to obtain significant risk protection. After all, the main objective is to prevent breathing air of different persons from spreading as effectively as possible. And even if a guest asks for higher protection measures e.g. because he or she belongs to the risk group, the treatment for each clean zone area can be individually adjusted with any device treating the respective zone in which the guest stays.
