Smart buildings technology company, Kontrol Technologies Corporation, has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Airmaster Corporation and New Zealand subsidiary Optimum Air.
The agreement also includes Daikin to offer real-time monitoring and detection of airborne pathogens to create safer spaces.
Kontrol BioCloud technology samples the air continuously through a proprietary and patented process.
When the device detects a virus, it sends a communication in the Cloud or over local intranet, notifying workplace leaders in real time. With this actionable information, employers can take the measures needed to mitigate virus outbreaks in the office.
Kontrol CEO, Paul Ghezzi, said the company will deliver air quality and real time space monitoring technology to the work environment.
Airmaster CEO, Noel Courtney, said the industry has entered a new era and approach to facilities management and indoor environment quality.
“It iis vital we extend our services and solutions in order to combat COVID-19, while helping businesses adapt safely and with confidence in this new normal,” Courtney said.
“Kontrol is a forward-thinking organisation and their research and development of BioCloud allows us offer a full-service solution that provides safer spaces and peace of mind for our customers.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Airmaster and Daikin will be provided with a three-year term and a one year exclusive in the HVAC sector in Australia and New Zealand. Kontrol received an initial purchase of BioCloud units as part of the agreement.
Further to the distribution agreement, Kontrol and Daikin will seek to explore manufacturing opportunities for the BioCloud technology outside of North America.
