As National Football League teams begin to prepare for the 2020 season, the Miami Dolphins are already ahead of the game. The franchise has begun to install Healthe Cleanse technology across its headquarters to help inactivate coronavirus pathogens. On Sunday, The Miami Herald published an article detailing the Dolphins’ plans.
The team has already begun installing its UV-C air-sanitizing troffers ⎼ ceiling fixtures that feature HEPA-Carbon activated filtration and UV sanitization ⎼ in the locker room. The devices help to improve localized air quality by filtering and inactivating airborne microbes and returning cleansed air to the space. The team will install a total of 40 Cleanse troffers around the facility. The Dolphins also plan to implement Healthe’s Cleanse downlights which use a novel Far-UVC 222nm source shown to be a highly effective germicidal, but uniquely safe for occupied spaces.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who is among Healthe’s investors, is excited about the technology.
“If we learn of ways to make our facility cleaner and safer for our players, coaches and staff, then we’re going to implement them,” [Ross told the Herald]. “The technology surrounding the troffers, which uses HEPA-filtration with UV light to inactivate 99.97 percent of airborne virus, was eye opening to me in terms of what can be effective in creating a cleaner environment.”
