Bipolar Ion Air Sterilization Surges in Popularity
By: Lisa Brown
In an effort to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Parallel Capital Partners Inc. has installed needlepoint bipolar ionization air sterilization systems at four office complexes in its portfolio: Honolulu’s Davies Pacific Center, Urban Towers in Dallas, Shoreline Square in Long Beach and The Ranch at Seal Beach in Seal Beach. The system has also been installed at Parallel’s headquarters at 4105 Sorrento Valley Blvd. in San Diego. The company was the first to utilize this technology in downtown Phoenix.
Public anxieties about indoor air quality due to coronavirus continue to be a concern. As a result, bipolar ionization air purification technology is surging in popularity among commercial property owners and operators, says Matt Root, CEO and managing partner of Parallel Capital Partners.
“Independent lab tests reveal that airborne bacteria and viruses were reduced significantly after exposure to bipolar ionization systems, which we believe are one of the safest, most energy-efficient and effective ways to keep people safe from pathogens and reduce or eliminate pollutants in the air,” Root said.
