Anti-Microbial finishes and UV disinfection now available

Cooke Industries AIRPAK air handling units can now be delivered with anti-microbial finishes on internal surfaces and also fitted with Fresh-Aire UV germicidal irradiation units, providing the highest quality, germ-free air.

For over 55 years, Cooke Industries have been delivering their AIRPAK air handling units in New Zealand. We are proud to put our name to and stand behind our design, engineering and manufacturing.

Like all great engineering outfits, Cooke Industries are always looking to evolve the design and manufacturing of our AIRPAK air handlers and now we use eco-friendly VOC exempt polyurethane foam insulation that with zero GWP and zero ODP.

And as the world has woken up to the threat posed by viruses like COVID-19, Cooke Industries have responded by introducing specialised hygenic units that can be supplied with anti-microbial finishes throughout including:

  • Internal surfaces with special BioCote anti-microbial surface finishes to framework, panels and bulkheads. This coating will not wear off, wash out or leach.

  • Heat transfer coils with D-Cote+ anti-corrision treatment with anti-microbial additives to reduce microbial growth

  • Fresh-Aire UV germidical irradiation for both surface and airborne disinfection

Anti-microbial Treatments and UVGI work by:

  • Protein damage: Proteins are essential for the biological systems of life. Any damage to these components causes the failure of essential functions such as energy production.

  • Cell membrane damage: By disrupting the microbes membrane, its structural integrity is compromised, which can cause essential nutrients to leak out and catastrophic structural failure.

  • Oxidative damage: Antimicrobials can cause increased levels of reactive oxygen species, which result in damage to the internal systems of the microbe.

  • DNA interference: The genetic material of the bacteria is disrupted, ultimately stopping the bacteria from being able to replicate by blocking the copying of their genetic material.

AIRPAK air handlers are reliable, engineered to the highest standards and affordable. Contact us today to discuss your requirements, we can provide you with a complete solution, locally designed, engineered and manufactured, now with anti-microbial and UVGI technologies for cleaner, safer air.
