RGF Releases Avid Air: New Product Developed with Chipotle Mexican Grill

January 14, 2019

RGF Environmental Group Inc., the leader in environmental solutions for air, food, and water, has developed the Avid Air™ purification unit in partnership with Chipotle Mexican Grill. The unit is designed to be discreetly flush- mounted within commercial spaces.

Chipotle’s objective in the development of Avid Air™ was to expand the reach of their food sanitation program. The Avid Air™ was created to destroy air and surface-born microbials (bacteria/viruses) in what is commonly known as one of the most contaminated areas of any enclosed space: the bathroom.

Since the exclusive launch of Avid Air™ with Chipotle, RGF has found a demand for the unit beyond bathroom installation. “It’s a competitive field out there and providing the highest-level indoor air quality to guests and customers has become yet another way for restaurants, retailers, and hospitality franchises to set themselves apart from the rest,” said Bill Svec, Vice President of water and food products at RGF. “We work closely with our clients to understand where they need our applications, targeting the sources most likely to contain microbial contaminants. Areas like public restrooms, hotel rooms, locker rooms, and retail changing rooms were at the top of their list.”

Avid Air’s stainless-steel fascia assures long life and durability, while the security screws serve to mitigate tampering and vandalism. The unit utilizes RGF’s proprietary Photohydroionization® (PHI) technology, which includes UV and quad-metallic catalyst components to actively purify the air through the creation of ionized hydro-peroxides. This reaction thereby greatly reduces bacteria, viruses, mold spores, odors, and VOCs. The unit does not require an existing HVAC component in the location of treatment and can be easily wired into the space as easily as a light fixture. By mounting the unit flush to the wall or ceiling, it appears as if it is simply part of the ventilation system.

Bill Svec added, “This product is virtually silent and prevents 100% of light from escaping the device, which is a critical request of the hospitality industry. Our design team was proactive in facing the issues of light and noise pollution, so we subsequently delivered a superior product to add to our air purification line.”

The Avid Air™ is not only for commercial use, but available to the public as well, and can be purchased through local HVAC suppliers and wholesalers and installed by a certified electrician or HVAC technician.
