● Researchers highlight COVID-19 threat posed by traditionally-equipped bathrooms
● British-manufactured toilet has been proved to reduce airborne germs by 95%
● Protection from infectious disease a key concern as economy restarts

Laindon, Essex, UK, 18 June 2020: The hygienic, water-saving, UK-manufactured toilet Propelair® is fighting the spread of COVID-19 – and saving water – in offices, service stations and restaurants as the nation bounces back from lockdown.

Propelair’s patented toilet technology suppresses airborne germs, saves water and limits carbon emissions. Propelair is working with businesses eager to curb the washroom infection risk caused by their obsolete conventional flush systems.

Scientific research published this week in Physics of Fluids found that standard toilets produce a “massive upward transport of virus particles … with 40%–60% of particles reaching above the toilet seat, leading to large-scale virus spread” when flushed. The authors added: “Blocking the path of faecal–oral transmission, which occurs commonly in toilet usage, is of fundamental importance in suppressing the spread of viruses” such as SARS-CoV-2, the strain of coronavirus that causes current pandemic.

Using just 1.5 litres of water and a high-speed jet of air, Propelair leaves the pan super-clean with one no-touch flush. Its distinctive air-sealed action locks aerosolised germs and with its SteriTouch® handle, minimises infection risk. A study by the Centre for Research into Environment and Health (CREH) found Propelair reduced aerosolised bacteria by 95%.

David Hollander, CEO, Propelair and former Dyson Managing Director, said: “As people return to their workplace, responsible employers are upping their guard against airborne germs, especially in the loo. As their businesses recover, they’re looking for new clean, safe technology that doesn’t – literally and figuratively – doesn’t cost the earth.”

Phoenix Product Development Limited, which trades as Propelair, is currently raising funds from both new and current investors, to boost sales, expand into new markets and add further services and innovations.

With more than 3,600 Propelair units installed in the UK and South Africa, the company’s new management team is talking to organisations about over 40,000 toilets in the UK and South Africa and will be targeting water-stressed Australia and countries in the Middle East. Following earlier investments by Investec and Earth Capital Partners, Propelair is developing innovations such as IOT connectivity to enable customers to measure water performance and utilise a zero-capital service offering.

Propelair has won numerous industry certifications and standards and was awarded the prestigious European Horizon2020 grant in 2017 to develop new innovations.
