Creating a safe workspace is a vital requirement for all employers, recent events have re-highlighted the importance of reducing the risk of infections spreading between individuals with many companies forced to adapt to staff working from home as a necessity until preventative measure can be put in place.

It's long been recognised that certain illnesses can rapidly spread throughout team members working in close proximity, even the best cleaning standards cannot combat an infected individual being present in an office, with airborne infections potentially spreading over wide areas and the risk of infection lasting long after the individual has left the area. Aside from individuals unintentionally introducing airborne infections they harbour; viruses, bacteria, allergens and moulds can also enter the area through doors, windows or air handling systems, meaning airborne pathogens are an ongoing challenge, especially in high occupancy buildings. Even the highest traditional cleaning standards can offer no protection from infectious microorganisms in the air, furthermore all freshly cleaned surfaces are open to recontamination as particles settle.

We are all familiar with the sensible recommended steps; regular hand washing/sanitising, social distancing, the wearing of facemasks etc. however these can only ever be part of the solution. The design of many buildings makes social distancing impossible in certain areas. Rooms like washrooms have long been recognized as high risk areas, odours in toilet facilities are a clear sign of high bacteria levels but even when odours are not obvious there can be a plethora of microorganisms present increasing the risk to all users. Meeting rooms, conference and training centres bring a range of challenges, with large numbers of people from multiple locations interacting and different groups using the same spaces from one day to the next, it is not only a key requirement to make the areas safe, but also easily recognisable as safe spaces to give confidence for users and their employers.

Many companies are currently planning their transition back from home working to full staffed offices and re-opening meeting facilities. Daxairscience can offer custom solutions for every company whether focusing on the highest risk areas or complete infection control solutions throughout the entire workspace. We offer a wide range of products from high powered fan driven units to cover the largest, highest contamination areas or completely silent products for smaller offices. Our tried and tested products use a unique combination of technology to produce superior results, with laboratory testing on a wide range of microorganisms and proven reductions in absenteeism within working environments.

Case study - showing 42% reduction in absenteeism in the NHS ambulance call centre

As in the above independent report once AIRsteril technology was installed in addition to the overall 42% reduction in absenteeism there were clear reductions in various chest & respiratory illnesses as well as cases of cold, cough, flu and influenza which are clearly the more likely to be spread within an office environment.

Please see below products suitable for Workspaces


All AIRsteril units utilise our unique combination of 5 technologies. They eliminate unpleasant odours and control harmful bacteria and viruses 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.


Odours and airborne infections are created by bacteria, viruses, mould, fungi and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) carried in the air. Regular cleaning, disinfecting and masking agents are not enough, they will not kill the bacteria which can multiply from one to 8 million in 8 hours*. In enclosed spaces, high levels of harmful bacteria and viruses accumulate in small and open plan offices, washrooms and other places such as photocopying and print rooms.

AIRsteril’s advanced technology

DAX Airscience has already resolved a variety of odour problems in the harshest environments and is proven to be a cost-effective, alternative to other waste processing odour control options.

We utilise technology which is scientifically proven to break down odour both in the air and at source meaning it will always work. Independent tests showed an average of 78% odour reduction inside the containment building which translates to no perceivable offensive external odours. Additionally, the technology constantly reduces microorganisms both in the air and on surfaces there is the added benefit of a healthier, infection-controlled environment for all.
