Neutralize Virus in Elevators with CleanCab

BRONX, NY -- As North American workers and students begin to return to offices and classrooms, they can feel confident stepping back into elevators using purification devices powered by ActivePure Technology.

CleanCab by GAL is a new elevator purification device proven to neutralize viruses in the air and on surfaces, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, providing active 24/7/365 disinfection.

CleanCab by GAL works by pulling oxygen and water molecules in the air through ActivePure’s patented honeycomb matrix where powerful oxidizers, known as ActivePure Molecules are created. The ActivePure Molecules are then released back into the elevator cab, where they vigorously neutralize pathogens such as MS2 Bacteriophage RNA virus, Staphylococcus Epidermidis, and others on surfaces and in the air.

“The ActivePure Molecules inactivate pathogens by destabilizing the shell of a virus or bacteria to destroy its living environment, preventing it from replicating or doing harm,” said Daniel Baltzegar, Vantage Regional Vice President, South and Midwest. “This technology, which is also used in hospitals, statehouses, residential buildings, and commercial offices, goes to every nook and cranny in the elevator cab, purifying not only shared air but surfaces as well, that harbor risks due to viruses.”

“ActivePure is a layer of protection and a countermeasure to airborne and surface viruses and bacteria. Its efficacy has been proven in extensive unaffiliated university and laboratory testing,” said Philip Urso, Executive Vice President of Strategy for ActivePure Technologies LLC. “This solution has been used by a wide range of large businesses, from athletic stadiums to universities, hospitals, and more, and we're so pleased to be working with GAL Manufacturing, a Vantage company, to use this proven technology to protect an essential small space, the elevator cab, against contaminants.”

ActivePure Technology was tested on live SARS-CoV-2 virus, not proxy or surrogate strains like many competing technologies use. It has been proven to reduce over 99% of that virus and a range of other surface contaminants. Detailed testing can be found on the ActivePure website.

Other benefits of CleanCab by GAL featuring ActivePure include:

  • Active disinfection 24/7/365
  • No ozone
  • Works quietly
  • Trusted for use by businesses where there is a high risk of transmission
  • Provides measurable results

“Unlike other products used in the elevator industry that take a passive approach to air purification using an inefficient filter or UV light, CleanCab by GAL is safely and uniquely UL listed, and releases particles that are actively working at all times. Elevator cabs can be purified and disinfected while riders occupy the space with others,” added Baltzegar.
