The Pebble+ hand dryer incorporates an advanced hygiene protocol for local air sterilization consisting of intelligent H13 filtration, UV-C light disinfection, ION particle generation and anti-microbial protection. This hand dryer operates at high efficiency while maintaining a low run cost.
Take hand drying to the next level: Save on costs and increase the standard of hygiene in your washroom!
The Pebble+ not only offers a sleek modern look, but it also saves you money by being energy efficient and preventing waste generated from paper towels. Providing paper towels is more expensive, produces waste that needs to be removed, and the average paper towel generates more CO2 than other methods. Reduce the costs by up to 90% compared to using paper towels.
Don’t just dry your hands, remove 99% of the bacteria and viruses from your hands and within the air inside the washroom. Local UV disinfection removes bacteria and viruses even when the hand dryer is not active.
The Pebble+ H13 HEPA filter removes 99.9% of contaminants including dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns. Particles larger or smaller than 0.3 microns are trapped with even higher efficiency.
The coronavirus for example is roughly 0.125 microns in diameter. It falls squarely within the particle-size range that the Pebble+ HEPA filters capture with extraordinary efficiency.
The intelligent H13 filter also notifies the user when the filter needs to be replaced. Ensuring that the Pebble+ is serviced when it needs to be so that it can continue to pump out clean air and perform at its optimal standards.
Often referred to as a “germicidal lamp”, the UV-C light is proven to stop all viruses, including the Coronavirus, from replicationg and spreading. This is achieved by destroying the section of the DNA responsible for replicating, thus making the virus unable to infect and spread.
The Pebble+ also features an ION Generator which produces negative ions that attach to positive ions in the air, such as dust particles, airborne bacteria, and viruses. The attachment results in an ungovernable increase in the weight of the molecule, forcing them to settle on the floor’s surface. This leaves the washroom cleaner, and free of unwanted dirt, bacteria and viruses.
The Pebble+ features a modern look with a sleek high gloss finish, this is more than just aesthetics, it features ION PURE antimicrobial technology. ION PURE is a soluble glass solution containing antimicrobial metal ions that are impregnated into the Pebble+ shell during the manufacturing process – This creates a germ and bacteria-resistant finish as well as a high gloss UV finish.
How does it work?
Simply put, Silver and Copper’s metal ions have antimicrobial properties that kill bacteria. Glass retains metal as ions, releasing them gradually in the presence of water or moisture. The materials are then mixed together to create a solution that can be added to a product at the manufacturing stage – thus giving it an inbuilt layer of added protection against bacteria.
The Science behind ION PURE
The Silver and Copper metal ions infused in the glass solution have an antimicrobial effect on bacteria because they penetrate or affix to their cell membranes. When the metal ions break through the cell’s membrane it prevents its growth by blocking the respiration of the cells and attaching to their DNA. Ultimately, bacteria are eliminated because the metal ions cause catastrophic structural failure by disrupting and compromising the cell’s structural integrity.
