4 Reasons Clean Air Technology Gives You a Competitive Advantage Page ContentIt's no wonder that demonstrated safety is the #1 resident consideration when choosing senior housing.1The impact of COVID-19 has dominated the news cycle, with Senior Living buildings often receiving negative, unfair coverage. Many of the caregiving measures and precautions taken to combat the spread of COVID-19 and protect residents have gone unrecognized. This includes the installation of Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI™), already undertaken by thousands of buildings across the country.What is NPBI clean air technology?NPBI safely introduces invisible air-cleaning ions into the airstream using your existing HVAC system. These ions flow through the air, inactivating pathogens and helping to remove particles and other contaminants in the air. From cleaning the air residents breathe to enhancing the effectiveness of filtration and PPE, NPBI is helping thousands of Senior Living buildings respond to the pandemic and protect residents. Watch the Video >>Even as COVID-19 vaccination becomes widespread, especially in Senior Living facilities, NPBI offers additional benefits to help boost census, protect residents, staff and visitors, and address recurrent industry frustrations.Here are 4 reasons why NPBI will give you a competitive advantage as we emerge from COVID-19.Reason 1 – Protects Against PathogensIn addition to COVID-19, NPBI is proven to inactivate many pathogens, including MRSA, C. diff, E.coli and Tuberculosis, and is currently being tested against influenza.2Reason 2 – Turns Heads During ToursDirect Supply helps you demonstrate how safe the air is to breathe to current and prospective residents with display marketing and informational materials.Reason 3 – Controls OdorsNPBI neutralizes unpleasant odors like cleaning chemicals to leave building air smelling fresh and clean.Reason 4 – Improves Indoor Air QualityNPBI removes unhealthy particles and pollutants to improve air quality for everyone, especially residents with sensitive respiratory conditions. NPBI is available in several options that can be retrofitted into any HVAC system. The whole process, from specification to installation and post-install ion monitoring, is professionally managed by the expert team at Direct Supply® Safety™ solutions.

Multiple data points are used to formulate performance validation statements. The technology is used in a wide range of applications across diverse environmental conditions. Results in non-lab environments will vary; clients should evaluate their individual application and environmental conditions when making an assessment regarding the technology's potential benefits.
