MOVE MORE PEOPLE SAFELY
You’ve trusted us for over 50 years with cabs, entrances, and door systems. Trust us to give the elevator a protective layer.
We’ve engineered two air sanitizing solutions, Sani-Cab® powered by Grignard Pure and
Sani-Panel®, by taking proven strategies from laboratories and the healthcare industry and adapting them to meet the specific requirements of your elevator cab.
How is the Elevator Environment Unique
It's a Confined Space
New germs are constantly entering the cab when passengers sneeze, cough, or even just breathe
New, contaminated air is constantly entering the cab each time the doors open
Columbia Elevator, in partnership with Grignard Pure, is bringing the first-of-its-kind, only EPA-approved, antimicrobial air treatment to the elevator industry
Proven to effectively inactivate >98% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the air in occupied spaces, where transmission is most likely, in 30 seconds, and >95% within 5 seconds.
Released continuously into the air of indoor spaces, killing virus particles as they enter from talking, coughing, sneezing, and breathing.
A Protective Layer
This technology has been around for more than 20 years to create the special lighting effects that we are accustomed to seeing at live music events, stage performances (including on Broadway), sporting events, and other live venues.
A wall-length lamp that delivers an inactivating dose of UV-C radiation in a single pass through the panel.
Customized to Your Cab
We’ll calculate the amount of UV wattage per cubic feet per minute your cab needs, based on its size, to provide the right combination of power and flow.
Adequate Contact Time & Intensity
The strength and length of the lamp is critical, ensuring that virus particles can be inactivated in a single pass.
Nose to Toes Airflow
Air gets sucked in from the bottom of the panel, then fans push the air up and out through the top of the cab, showering passengers with clean air.
What to Look for in Air Sanitizing Solutions for Elevators
The ability to inactivate virus particles in seconds (not minutes) to keep up with cleaning the new air that is constantly being introduced
The ability to customize the amount of treatment based on the number of people and size of the cab
Something that won’t produce any toxins or pose any new health hazards
Something that won’t degrade the materials in the car
New Construction vs. Modernization?
Do I need both solutions?
No, just one or the other is sufficient. Each solution is unique to our customers preferences.
Which is the more proactive approach and why?
Can these solutions be used in any size elevator?
How can I purchase an air sanitizing solution from Columbia?
Can you see Grignard Pure in the air?
Are there any side effects of using Grignard Pure?
Does Grignard Pure only fight Covid in the air?
How long do the bulbs last?
The UV bulbs used in Sani-Panels® last longer than a year of continuous usage, but we recommend including annual replacements as part of the elevator's Maintence Control Plan.
How do I know when to replace the UV bulb in the Sani-Panel®?
Each Sani-Panel is equipped with a small, discrete UV safe window. If the bulb goes out and needs replacement, the light in the window will be out.
