COVID Defense Products: Radic8

UV sterilization seems to be a reliable method for protecting against pathogens such as COVID, so we looked into UV technology to help treat the air in our office. The challenge was finding a product that allows enough UV-microbe contact time to predictably inactivate microbes. 


This is a product designed to clean and purify air similar to other HEPA/UV air purifiers. However, we were excited by the vertical construction of the unit with 8 stacks of 2 UV lights each with tray construction between the UV lights designed to disturb and slow the pattern of airflow. The other units we evaluated didn't have a UV chamber we felt would allow enough UV-microbe contact time as the Radic8 technology. 

We have not received these units yet but we look forward to receiving them at about the same time construction on our office is complete in mid-October.

If you are searching for similar tech, we were also considering the Surgically Clean Air Cascade White unit but there are more logistical challenges with this unit.
