RGF® Environmental Group, Inc., a leader in environmental design and manufacturing, announces TGI Fridays® will install RGF’s patented REME HALO® and Package PHI Units in the company’s restaurants across the United States to support the re-opening of the restaurants’ indoor dining areas.
“As a national leader in the fight to overcome the global pandemic, RGF looks forward to working with TGI Fridays in the deployment of our patented products to provide a safe dining experience for customers and patrons,” said Bill Svec, Vice President – Water & Food Products, RGF Environmental Group, Inc. “RGF is collaborating with national and independently-owned restaurants across America to help them provide safe indoor dining environments. Restaurants want to—and need to—re-open so they may bring employees back to work.”
“As we looked for indoor air quality technology to support the reopening of our locations for indoor dining, we determined RGF’s technology to be the best solution for TGI Fridays’ national footprint of restaurants,” notes Jay Roach, Senior Director of Construction & Facilities, TGI Fridays. “RGF’s active air treatment solution kills bacteria and viruses on surfaces and in the air, which provides both a safe dining environment for our customers and a safe work environment for our employees.”
An independent third-party study focused on the inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 using RGF’s proprietary REME HALO product with PHI-Cell® technology. The study demonstrated efficacy rates of greater than 99.9% against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the virus known to cause coronavirus 2019 or COVID-19. The testing, performed at the Innovative Bioanalysis Laboratories in Cypress, Calif., looked at neutralizing the virus within the occupied space in the air and on surfaces.
