Calgary-based Air Sniper is targeting retailers and shopping centres in Canada with its technology that is proven to kill COVID-19 at a very reasonable price point. 

Air Sniper is an air sanitization technology that utilizes UVC technology to reduce airborne pathogens. Air Sniper equipment is confirmed to continuously kill up to 99.9% of airborne COVID-19 particles in laboratory conditions. 

The cost for a convenience store-sized retail business would be about $3 per day, making it extremely cost effective. 

Features and benefits of Air Sniper include:

  • Commercial, industrial-scale air purification.
  • Covers to 7,500 cubic feet with recommended air turnover every 10 minutes.
  • Destroys 99.9% of airborne pathogens including COVID-19, influenza, staph, mould, and more.

“We’re proud to be one of the first to be third-party tested and proven to kill 99.9% of COVID-19 as well as many other viruses and pathogens,” said Stuart Henley, President at AIR, a claim independently verified by use of EPA approved surrogate virus Bacteriophage MS2 to be accurate in laboratory conditions by a custom environmental testing chamber by Airmid HealthGroup of Ireland. “We hope that more businesses and facilities will take advantage of this solution in order to remain open safely.”

Calgary-based Air Sniper was founded about 20 years ago to filter air in commercial buildings. Testing was done last year to confirm that Air Sniper technology could also kill the novel Coronavirus COVID-19. The proven technology has since been introduced into the Peel District School Board as well as many other businesses. 

Retail Insider is partnering with Air Sniper on this announcement as the Air Sniper technology may help keep businesses and shopping centres open at a time when many are concerned about closures as a pandemic fourth wave takes hold into the fall/winter cold and flu season. 

Employees and visitors to businesses and shopping centres utilizing Air Sniper can enter with more confidence knowing that Air Sniper is handling air purification to kill unwanted germs.
