Improving the Office Environment with Airdri
Real People talk to us about their challenges post lockdown

We have all admired, cheered and applauded the dedication and efforts made by all NHS staff. From the surgeons and medics on the front line to those behind the scenes in sanitation and the offices. Where would we be without them and how would we have coped with the Covid-19 pandemic in the absence of their dedication and heroism?
To offer a glimmer of comfort and safety The Digital Line (TDL) had the opportunity of fitting an Airdri SteraSpace into one of the office areas at a teaching hospital in Sheffield. As a silent running, discreet unit, the air purifier is constantly operating in the background, without disruption to the workplace or. They can be wall or ceiling-mounted and are suitable for a variety of room sizes, from 10 to 80 square metres.
“Working in a hospital, Covid-19 has had a substantial effect in all our working environments,” says Helen. “I have worked throughout the pandemic and the constant changes with PPE and the lack of knowledge about the virus itself have had a major impact on all staff leading to anxiety and stress.
“SteraSpace works 24/7 killing up to 98.11% of airborne and surface bacteria and viruses that are generated in between the office regular cleanings, keeping the workspace germ-free at all times, this adds a necessary additional layer of protection to the uncertainty we have regarding safety and hygiene in high-risk areas”
The unit not only improves air quality but also eliminates odours and mould by sanitising the air and controlling the spread of micro-organisms. The combined technologies of specialist UV and Photocatalytic Disinfection (PCD) has been proven to kill the Coronavirus family, continually circulating clean, purified air.
For staff moving around the hospital from office space to outpatients and ward areas, as Helen does, this guarantees that on her return to the office her environment is sanitised and germ-free.
“I have now had SteraSpace for about a month,” Helen continues. “My office is approximately 10ft by 6ft with no windows and is extremely claustrophobic. I share this space with my colleague who over this period has been shielding at home because of an underlying health condition.
“When I enter the office in the morning the air smells really fresh and this continues throughout the day. Also, because I work in a confined space, I tend to feel tired and have a headache by the end of the day but the Airdri has certainly helped counteract this.
“My colleague has now returned from shielding. She suffers from asthma and allergies and has found since coming back to work that she isn’t coughing and sneezing as much as before. She is also loving the clean fresh smell when coming into the office in the morning.”
Air purifiers have been gaining popularity in recent months, and today they are one of the most in-demand electrical appliances. Recommended for people who have both allergy or respiratory problems, it can eliminate triggers for asthma and allergens such as dust and pollen from the atmosphere. It is also ideal for those who want to breathe cleaner air at home or work, and its effectiveness is fully proven.
Airdri SteraSpace is incredibly energy efficient too, running on just 10w of power.
