BlueSky Air Safety Zones protect against COVID & other airborne pathogens
BlueSky Air Safety Zones. Protection against COVID, flu, and other airborne pathogens
The VALEO facility in Rakovnik Czechia had a stellar safety record already. With the installation of a BlueSky Air Safety Zone, the ultimate in airborne-disease protection technology, they have once again confirmed that reputation.
Based on air-filtration technology used in aircraft cabins
BlueSky Air Safety Zones are self-supporting structures, that create "islands" of clean air in large indoor spaces
A BlueSky Air Safety Zone is a free-standing safe-air system powered by a BlueSky® Defender™ machine. The ducted BlueSky system creates a continuous, top-to-bottom, laminar airflow that quickly pushes the aerosols down after people breathe them out. The aerosols then get sucked into the HEPA filtration machine before they have a chance to infect people. The BlueSky system works independently of any other systems such as HVAC.
* BlueSky Air Safety Zone™ installation is Patent Pending
The BueSky air filtration system is based on the same technology used in aircraft cabins
Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, hundreds of millions of people have traveled in airplanes without creating a single superspreader event. This remarkable fact can be attributed to the downflow air ventilation used in aircraft cabins.
Most viruses and other germs do not spread easily on flights because of how air circulates and is filtered on airplanes.

Case study - BlueSky Laminar downflow system installed in one day at VALEO
VALEO CDA Rakovnik (before)
This situation at VALEO in Czechia (a country hard hit by COVID) is similar to facilities all over the world. Because of advanced automation, there are few people on the general workfloor, but there's always a "people island". It's usually the beating heart (and brains) of the facility.
The people on the island are clustered together and are in frequent communication with each other, which makes them a high-risk category for contracting COVID-19 or flu. VALEO made it a priority to protect their most vulnerable, and valuable, employees.

VALEO CDA Rakovnik (after)
The ducted BlueSky system creates a continuous, top-to-bottom, laminar airflow that pushes the aerosols down immediately after people breathe them out. The aerosols then get sucked into the HEPA filtration machine before they have a chance to spread.
Why ducting is key
Ductless stand-alone filtration devices work on the principle of dilution. This approach moves air horizontally towards the machine which increases the risk of cross-infection. The BlueSky laminar downflow system moves air vertically into floor-level ducts, taking all airborne pathogens with it.
EXAMPLES OF INDUSTRIES WHERE AIR SAFETY ZONES COULD BE SUCCESFULLY DEPLOYED
Most modern warehouses, fulfillment centers, and factories are set up the same way. In these highly automated environments, people are only required in critical positions. People in some of the most critical positions are often working together on "islands" located on the workfloor. These employees, who work at their desks adjacent to each other, are at a much greater risk of contracting COVID or flu than employees who move around or work on their own.
