Breathe Easier: We Have You Covered!

gps device over benefits: particle reduction, pathogen reduction, neutralize odors, energy savings

At the beginning of the Pandemic, we resolved to use this as an opportunity to up our game and to create a better experience for our guests and, at the same time, create a safer working environment for our staff. You’ve likely noticed and appreciated many of these measures.

We knew, however, we had to address something you can’t see—the air you breath. This October, we invested in clean air technology: Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI). This technology is decades old and in use all over the world in spaces ranging from the White House and Google to the Mayo Clinic, Ramstein Air Force Base, Harvard University and dozens of hospitals.

This patented technology produces a high concentration of positive and negative ions, delivering them to the space via the heating and cooling system. Within the air stream, ions attach to particles, where they combine, become larger and are more easily filtered from the air. Additionally, during the NPBI process, contact with ions disrupts pathogen’s protein membrane (those spikes on the cells) and effectively kills them without filtration both in air and on surfaces. These systems have been tested to more than 99.9% effectiveness on the SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 virus.

Ionization cleaning will not introduce ozone or any other harmful by-products into our dining rooms. In fact, ionization is effective at eliminating odors and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs), so we will all enjoy the additional benefits for years to come. In conjunction with the NPBI technology, we continue to find ways to flood our dining rooms with fresh, clean outside air (let us know if you think the dining room is too cold!). We hope you and are our valued employees will breath easier. The best news? It operates silently all day and night cleaning our air and killing virus’ while we take care of you.
