Since the launch of the UVC Product Lineup, we've seen considerable interest and sales growth from Indoor Sports Facilities, including wrestling, weightlifting, and health/fitness clubs. Beyond our traditional markets of Synthetic and Natural Turf, indoor sporting facilities have a real demand for reliable, effective solutions for sanitation.
It is not uncommon to hear about reports of STAPH outbreaks at local schools or to read articles over concerns for safety when the cold and flu season arrives. The fact of the matter is that everywhere around us there are high-contact surfaces that are prime areas for the spread of harmful pathogens. Sometimes it is simply the spread of the common flu. In other cases, the bacteria and viruses are far more harmful.
Indoor athletic facilities are prime targets for the spread of germs. Simply ask a local wrestling coach what they think of sanitation.
Since athletic facilities are where the body is under stress from activity, sweat, mucus, saliva, and blood are common things that wind up on surfaces that are in contact by others. Most indoor athletic facilities are also in the right environmental range where microbes can survive and grow.
Built around germicidal ultraviolet (UVC) lights, the miniZapr disinfects surfaces with powerful exposure, instantly destroying harmful micro-organisms. From viruses such as Hepatitis, HIV, and Influenza to bacteria such as MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella, and Staph, the miniZapr creates the ultimate benchmark for institutional safety.
In some circles, germicidal UVC is a new technology. Few know that it has been used by many other industries that now rely on it for sanitation. Developed heavily in the 1920s, UVC technology is now the primary solution when combating micro-organisms. Air, water, and foods are treated every day across the US to secure these important supplies safely and economically.
Designed by GreensGroomer WorldWide® the miniZapr® uses the power of UVC technology to destroy harmful germs inherent in many institutional settings. The miniZapr is available in two models, 18” and 36” wide. Both models have a base unit or floor module and a hand-held wand.
For UVC light intensity we chose to employ a powerful base reflector module with 8 proprietary, high energy UVC bulbs. The unit can be powered by an on-board generator (outdoor use) or through a standard 120v wall outlet (with a 50 foot power cord).
The miniZapr makes a continual sanitation strategy possible and avoids the high cost, repetitive chemical treatments. Over the long haul, the fiscal argument is clear — not to mention ultimate safety is addressed with such a simple, proven solution.
Compared to other sanitation techniques, the miniZapr is the most efficient, most cost-effective method available to the industry.
