Train and Bus Drivers are essential workers and millions of people rely on them to go about their lives on a daily basis without much thought. Because these drivers come in contact with millions of people daily as well as all of the vehicle exhaust fumes, it is imperative precautions are taken to keep them healthy and away from so many contaminants.
By installing a Safety Halo® from the roof above the driver for him or her to sit under, you provide an effective layer of protection around them and help protect the members of the public as well. The Safety Halo® works by pulling the dirty germ-filled air into its housing to filter it. There it has a pre-filter at the point of entry that extracts larger dust particles from the air. The air then flows through a HEPA filter element to clean out germs and other tiny contaminants. After passing through the HEPA filter, the air then flows gently out of the bottom of the Safety Halo® to create a cone of clean air around the driver.
This cone of HEPA-filtered air, which is gently pressurized so that it moves outward as it flows downward, helps to block the entry into itself of air exhaled by others toward the driver. It also captures many of the respirated particles that penetrate the cone, and as an added benefit, germs and other particles exhaled by the driver, and pushes them downward and safely away from the face of the driver and passengers.
In addition, every germ removed from the atmosphere of the train or bus by the Safety Halo® helps reduce the concentration of germs, dust and other contaminants throughout the entire vehicle.
As an option to reduce maintenance and other operating costs, We Clean Air can replace the standard pre-filter and blower section in the Safety Halos® with an Air Cleaning BlowerTM (ACB). ACBs clean and blow air without using filter media, and they remove dust, pollen, mist, rain and millions of other particles. Hence, they move cleaned air into the HEPA element to extend its life. By replacing the pre-filter elements in the Safety Halos®, ACBs eliminate their gradual clogging, thereby reducing the maintenance of Safety Halos® still further.
