A breath of fresh air for Irish businesses

The Northern Irish company has launched a game changing filtration system that removes Covid-19 air particles in minutes.

Northern Irish family owned business OKTO Technologies has launched a wellness division – OKTOair – a solution set to bring a ‘breath of fresh air’ to Ireland, with its artificial intelligence-led air filtration solution which has been fast-tracked due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Lisburn-based company, which was founded in 1992, provides full building technology solutions for luxury hotels, super-prime homes and commercial offices.

This new AI-led disinfecting filtration system, which addresses indoor air contamination, is so advanced that it has been proven to remove a proxy virus for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, from the air with 99.98 per cent (pc) elimination within 10 minutes and 100pc in 45 minutes.

“Never before has the Irish public need been more focused on feeling safe and protected in the home or work environment”

An invaluable feature for hotels, businesses and homes across Ireland, this system is set to minimise the risk of virus transmission on their premises.

OKTOair’s new suite of wellness technologies will go a long way to reassuring occupants that the air they breathe is of optimum quality and safe.

Philip Dowds, managing director of OKTO Technologies is pictured with the largest AirWorks filter in the range and the OKTOair dashboard.

The AI-led system was specifically designed to address and eradicate the problem of indoor air contamination and natural allergens/pollens in homes, offices and hotels.

The system will consistently monitor indoor air quality, temperature and humidity. The high-end technology also incorporates a user-friendly dashboard to keep occupants fully informed and updated with all aspects of air quality inside and outside their properties.

“OKTOair elevates our smart buildings technologies ethos to a new level by creating living spaces which enable occupiers to thrive and flourish”

Speaking ahead of the launch of Philip Dowds, managing director of OKTO Technologies, believes OKTOair is arriving at the right time for businesses across the country.

“Never before has the Irish public need been more focused on feeling safe and protected in the home or work environment. We fast-tracked the launch of this system as a result of COVID-19 because we genuinely feel it will have a positive and helpful impact for hotels and businesses across the country as they reopen their doors.

“OKTOair elevates our smart buildings technologies ethos to a new level by creating living spaces which enable occupiers to thrive and flourish.

“In the midst of the most densely populated and polluted city centres, where property prices are at a premium, our solutions offer optimum control, comfort, health, wellbeing and ultimately, peace of mind,” he added. 

The new systems are available now either as a stand-alone installation or can be included within the user-focused Smart Building Systems for which OKTO Technologies are already widely known.
