HEALTHY BUILDING INITIATIVE
511 EJC has taken every opportunity to implement aggressive protective measures in our building for the health and safety of our tenants and visitors. Added to our arsenal of health-enhancing improvements is a double air filtration system and virus-killing UV lighting in our HVAC systems. Common areas are equipped with Nanoseptic sleeves and spray designed to capture and kill germs. Also, Ionic Air cleaning systems added to all elevator cabs, all of which are outlined below.
The engineering team has maintained the building HVAC systems as usual. The air handler coils have been cleaned with hot water and disinfected. New Merv 13 rated filters have been installed on all air handlers. The building humidity and temperature are controlled, which has been reported to shorten the half-life of the virus.
Additionally, we are currently installing UV light sterilization in our air distribution system. We have been advised that this technology should kill 90-100% of all viruses, bacteria, and other potentially harmful particulates present in the air distribution system. Finally, self cleaning paint has been added to the room.
NANOSEPTIC COMMON AREA TOUCH POINTS
NanoSeptic self-cleaning surfaces have been installed in high-traffic areas of the building on doors, elevator push buttons, and other high-touch areas. Powered by light, NanoSeptic surfaces utilize mineral nano-crystals, which create a powerful oxidation reaction. Working 24/7, it is intended to continually oxidize organic contaminants.
IONIC AIR CLEANING
We have added ionic air cleaning to our elevator cabs.The ionic air cleaning system is another piece of technology designed to generally kill viruses. The system should enhance our efforts to kill viruses, bacteria and other harmful particulates in conjunction with the HVAC system upgrades.
