Connect UV Air Purifiers

Connect-UV™ Introduces New UV-C Air Purifiers

Connect-UV’s new line of UV-C Air Purifiers air to help solve the problem of dangerous indoor air quality. The air purifiers combine HEPA filtration, which can filter down to 0.1 micron, with UV-C light sanitation, which destroys the RNA and DNA of microorganisms. Combined, the two cleaning methods ensure that potentially dangerous viruses, bacteria, fungi, pollen, smoke, and dust are not being circulated in the air.

Connect-UV’s new Air Purifier Pro 500 quietly cleans up to 557 square feet, cycling the air 3.7 times per hour. The Air Purifier Pro Max 5000 can clean up to 5,287 square feet, cycling the air 3.5 times per hour. Both purifiers include UV-C light sanitation, HEPA level 13 filter, an PM2.5 air monitoring system that displays the real time indoor air quality, are wall mountable, include a remote control and ships for free within the United State.

Indoor air quality can be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air, according to the EPA. Poor air quality can wreak havoc on allergy suffers, lead to asthma, headache, irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, fatigue, respiratory disease, heart disease, and even cancer. Illnesses including Legionnaires’ Disease, flu and COVID-19 can spread through the air, while radon pollution is the second leading cause of lung cancer.

“With the Delta variant surging and school about to start, we are hearing from customers who want solutions to clean the air.” Said Tom Mitchell, Executive Director of Strategy and Business Development for Connect-UV, “Connect-UV’s new air purifiers join our line up of UV-C sanitizing lockers, carts, and desktop units, all designed to kill germs and bacteria on phones and personal items.”

At only 11.5 inches high, the Air Purifier Pro 500 is compact and powerful enough to clean the air in 557 sqft, making it a great option for homes, small shops, medical offices, classrooms, and daycare centers.  At 49.2 inches tall, the Air Purifier Pro Max 5,000 is the perfect solution for large spaces such as warehouses, gyms, auditoriums, convention centers, restaurants, and automotive dealerships. Both units can be wall mounted or free standing and ship for free in the United States.

CONNECT-UV OUTFITS HIGH SCHOOL WITH UV-C SANITIZING CHARGING CARTS

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ—May 26, 2021 – Kids, electronics, and germs are almost an unavoidable combination. With the COVID vaccines not yet approved for children under the age of 12, and the Biden Administration and CDC urging schools to reopen, schools across the nation are trying to find ways to ensure safety and cleanliness on campus. One way a high school in Greenville, North Carolina is working to ensure safety is through six new UV-C sanitizing charging carts.

“The school came to us with a need to replace their aging charging carts that no longer fit the school’s needs. When they learned Connect-UV’s charging carts not only charge, but also kill germs and bacteria, the school leaped at the opportunity to incorporate UV-C technology into their charging needs.” Said Tom Mitchell, executive director of strategy and business development for Connect-UV.

Connect-UV charging carts can charge and sanitize up to 40 devices at a time. With a locking door equipped with an auto-off switch, the carts ensure that devices are sanitized safely, without risk of theft, or unintended exposure to the UV-C lights if the door is opened during a sanitation cycle. The carts clean for 5 or 10 minutes and kill up to 99% of microorganisms within 10 minutes using safe and effective UV-C light. Additionally, the carts are on casters, have serge protection, and come with a variety of charging adaptors.

Connect UV Donates Three UV-C Sterilizing Charging Carts to Notre Dame Preparatory High School

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. March 2, 2021 – If COVID has taught us anything this last year, it is just how many germs are around us. Teen entrepreneur Nic Brown, a junior at Notre Dame Prep in Scottsdale, thought there had to be a way to keep personal devices clean without harmful chemicals. His solution—powerful microbe killing UV-C light.

“I first discovered UV-C light when I was researching cleaning methods for my car detailing company,” said Brown, “When COVID hit, I realized that I was in a position to help solve the problem of harmful germs on every day items. And Connect-UV was born.”

The concept behind Connect-UV is for people to connect, clean and charge. “While mobile devices are stored in Connect-UV sterilizing charging carts, my hope is that people will connect with each other instead of staring at the phones, and their phones will get sanitized and charged at the same time,” Brown said. In addition to cell phones and tablets, the units will sanitize other items such as keys, masks, and glasses.

Brown donated three industrial UV-C sanitizing carts and 12 desktop units to his school on Feb. 24, which just happened to be his 17th birthday. 

“What a great testimony to the faith of our school, that Nic would give back to Notre Dame Prep on his birthday,” said Lisa Johnston, NDP finance director. “We also encourage our students to be innovative thinkers and leaders. We are very proud of Nic’s entrepreneurial spirit and our ability to share his hard work with others,” she added.

Notre Dame Prep has taken many safety measures to remain open for in-person learning since Sept. 8, 2020. “We are committed to keeping our staff and students safe during and after the COVID pandemic,” Johnston said. “Nic’s generous gift provides us with another means for reducing the spread of viruses.”

Connect-UV sells products ranging from sanitizing lamps and boxes for home use, to large charging lockers and carts for school and business use. The company’s mission is to allow people to charge, clean and connect safely and easily. “I’ve always been inspired by great entrepreneurs,” he said. “I’m always thinking of the next thing.”

UV-C light is naturally occurring shortwave light created by the sun that is filtered by the atmosphere before it can reach the earth. According to the FDA, this powerful light destroys the DNA in microorganisms, including viruses and bacteria, rendering the agents unable to reproduce or infect.
