We Clean Air jumped into action after the COVID-19 pandemic began to develop PPE (personal production equipment). However, we took a different approach from most—we developed a system of passive protection, which means that the user does not have to take any action, such as putting on a mask or a shield to protect him or herself.
These new protective air canopies protect people who work closely with the public or their fellow workers, especially for long periods. They eliminate the thirst, fogging eyeglasses and other discomforts of masks and, thereby, the temptation not to wear them. After extensive product development and lots of testing—including by NIOSH (the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, a part of CDC), Air Cleaning Blowers launched its new product, the Safety Halo® Protective air canopy. Combining the design of units developed by NIOSH to protect coal miners from the dusts and the multi-patented Air Cleaning Blower, the Safety Halo® was created.
The Safety Halo® works in a revolutionary way to help keep germs in the air from reaching the faces of your workers, your family and other people around you. They provide protection to people and products in close contact with the public, with ill patients, and with others who could exhale disease-causing germs in their direction. Safety Halos® work by first filtering the air clean with an Air-Cleaning BlowerTM (ACB) which then blows clean air through a high-efficiency particulate-absorbing post filter and then downward to form a cone of protective air blocks or carries away germs exhaled by others away from the faces of people within the cone. The Safety Halo’s® cones of air will also help protect your customers, your other workers and family members by trapping and carrying away germs that the cashier, meat packer or other worker might be exhaling.
