Aerus Purification Technology
Aerus makes air & surface purification units that effectively kill viruses. NASA certified, it is the only Certified Space Technology in the world in its class. ActivePure® Technology utilizes a proprietary hydrophilic photo catalytic coating, consisting of non-nano titanium dioxide with a proprietary combination of additional transition elements to enhance efficiency. These units are not passive like other purifiers, they actively create oxidizers to go out and kill contaminants in the air and on surfaces. These oxidizers are extremely effective at destroying bacteria, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other environmental contaminants. Laboratory testing showed ActivePure® Technology to be effective against H1N1, H5N8, MRSA, Staph, Streptococcus, E-Coli, Listeria, Bacillus spp, Stachybotrys Chartarum and more. University studies have shown that ActivePure® can reduce at least 96.4% and as much as 99.99% of surface and airborne contaminants within the first 24 hours. Commercial, Industrial and Residential applications. Our ActivePure® Technology has been successfully and safely used in hospitals, homes, doctor’s offices, professional sports facilities and other applications across the world.
ActivePure® differs from passive technologies such as HEPA, carbon filters and UV lights that require pathogens to be pulled in to them; in that it is projected from the ActivePure® cell into the air in a room, where it circulates everywhere to immediately attack pathogens in the air and on surfaces. It works faster and better than every passive technology.
ActivePure® Technology has consistently proven its ability to safely control and neutralize contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, mold, fungi and VOCs in numerous tests and studies, without harm to humans, animals and plant life. We can help every business and every home with our products so businesses can be protected and individuals can feel safe.

Fever Detection Cameras
The traditional method of screening for fevers is labour intensive and slow, often resulting in long line ups to get into work and precious time/money spent. We’ve recently launched a ‘Fever Detection Screening Service’ using HD thermal cameras that are linked to a sophisticated software program to accurately and efficiently screen employees entering the workforce.
