Our list of cleaning products, tools and technology includes:
airPHX: airPHX technology provides 24 hour coverage against bacteria and viruses, generating sanitizing air. These have been installed in all FFC locations. airPHX (pronounced “Air-fix”) is a “plug and go” system; with minimal required maintenance or potential for user error. airPHX units consistently result in 95.6% to 98.2% fewer airborne germs and 92% fewer surface germs.
Ozone Technology: Tersano SAO. FFC facilities now use the Tersano Stabilized Aqueous Ozone (SAO) system for cleaning and disinfection of all surfaces. SAO is commonly called “greener than green,” given that it is simply ozone water and is completely toxin free. SAO offers a kill rate similar to hospital-grade disinfectants. A multi-surface, multi-functional cleaner, staff use SAO on surfaces throughout our facilities both in periodic cleaning and as part of our FitClean Guidelines.
Ultraviolet Light Systems – Matsana: The Matsana yoga mat disinfection system is the only UV light technology that safely and effectively eliminates surface bacteria and viruses; this system is in place in all FFC mind/body studios. Using the same light technology employed by hospitals to sanitize high risk rooms, Matsana sanitizes standard yoga mats to a test lab verified standard of 99.99% germ free in 20 seconds.
Disinfectant Wipes – GymWipes and 2XL Force: All fitness areas throughout our facilities have readily available, regularly spaced disinfectant wipes for members’ use. Members are expected to wipe down all equipment and surfaces before and after their use with wipes to provide quick and effective sanitization of commonly touched surfaces, as the first step in our FitClean Guidelines.
Hand Sanitizer Stations: Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout our facilities, offering touchless application of sanitizing solutions. These will include an alcohol-based sanitizer that provides in excess of 70% ethyl alcohol, and the alcohol-free My-Shield. We have increased the visibility and quantity of these stations throughout our facilities, including at club check in and throughout all fitness areas.
UV Light Wands: UV Light Wands are used by staff over high touch hard to clean areas like keyboards and phones, elevator buttons and door knobs. This technology has been used in the past in HVAC systems and in swimming pool applications.
Dyson and Xlerator Hand Dryers: Dyson and Xlerator hand dryers feature an integrated HEPA filter that captures 99.97% of bacteria-sized particles from the washroom air. An antimicrobial coating and touch-free operation helps to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria. Touchless Dyson Airblade and Xlerator hand dryers are located throughout our single user bathrooms and locker rooms.
Water Refill Stations: Water bottle stations are located in certain areas of the club, offering bottle refills.
